New generation of full sized fingerprint sensors has been unveiled by NEXT Biometrics Group. The low-power fingerprint sensors are not only cost-effective but are also robust.
The CEO of NEXT Biometrics, Tore Etholm-Idsoe said, "After 12 months of development we are very happy to announce that we have succeeded in creating a brand new core sensor design that consumes less power and going forward will be used in both our flexible and rigid sensor modules." He also added that, "This sensor is a key part of our strategy to seize the leader position in the booming smart card market."
According to NEXT Biometrics , the new sensor designs improve the NEXT ESD (electrostatic discharges) robustness further to a level that will match the most stringent ESD standards, thus enabling the company to cater to the needs of all mass markets associated with fingerprint sensors.
This is an important milestone in our strategic road map. We thank our high quality team of designers, software, firmware and hardware experts which has done an impressive job developing this new sensor generation.
