Fingerprint Cards AB receives purchase order from top-tier Asian OEM for its new biometric PC solution
Fingerprint Cards AB (Fingerprints™) today announced that the company has received a purchase order for a couple of hundred thousand sensors from a top-tier Asian PC manufacturer for its new biometric PC solution.
Fingerprints’ first major purchase order for this new solution was announced on January 7, 2021. The additional order we publicize today is the second one we have received in a short period of time, and we expect the positive trend in demand for biometric authentication in consumer and enterprise PCs to continue.
Fingerprints’ new biometric solution for the PC market was launched in August 2020. The software solution is compatible with the Windows 10 operating system and can be used in combination with a broad range of Fingerprints’ touch sensors. It interfaces with Windows Hello and is compliant with Microsoft Enhanced Sign-in (SecureBio), meeting both the biometrics and security requirements of Microsoft. Fingerprints’ new solution is tailored for use across a growing number of different form factors and use cases, including notebooks, 2-in-1 convertibles, and PC accessories.
Fingerprints expects to see strong growth in this segment in the coming years. As previously disclosed, we estimate the number of PCs shipped every year to remain at ~260 million units, and that approximately two-thirds of these devices, i.e. ~170 million units, will have a fingerprint touch sensor by 2026. Fingerprints’ aspiration is to lead this market with a share of up to ~40 percent.
