Asus laptop launches with Fingerprints’ biometric Match-on-Chip PC solution
Fingerprint Cards AB (Fingerprints™) today announced that the company’s biometric Match-on-Chip PC solution is integrated in the Asus Expertbook B5 laptop. This is the first Asus Windows PC product that integrates Fingerprints’ Match-on-Chip solution, which is on Microsoft’s approved vendor list (AVL) for Windows Hello Enhanced Sign-in Security. In Match-on-Chip solutions, the users’ biometric data is stored on a separate MCU. This offers higher security than the so-called Match-on-Host systems, where biometric authentication usually occurs in the computer’s CPU. While Fingerprints offers both varieties, we expect Match-on-Chip to continue growing at the expense of Match-on-Host. Match-on-Chip solutions have a higher average selling price (ASP) and currently account for the main part of our addressable market in the PC area.
“Biometric solutions for PCs have quickly emerged as an important new product area for Fingerprints. We dominate the market for fingerprint sensors in Chromebooks and, with the launch of the Asus Expertbook B5, Fingerprints’ biometric technology is now being used by yet another top Windows laptop brand. Products from four out of the world’s top five Windows PC OEMs now integrate Fingerprints’ technology. We anticipate continued market growth since the share of computers with fingerprint sensors is expected to continue rising and our premium offering is valued,” commented Adam Philpott, President & CEO of Fingerprints.
Fingerprints' capacitive sensor solution for PCs, in combination with our tailored software and algorithm, perform fast fingerprint matching in line with the highest security standards while optimizing user convenience.
