Samsung Galaxy A5 to Feature Egis’ ET320 Fingerprint Touch Sensor

Egis Technology Inc., a leading fingerprint sensor provider, is proud to announce a key design win for its ET320 fingerprint touch sensor. Samsung Electronics has selected Egis’ ET320 for implementation into the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2016) in select markets. The ET320 offers multiple performance benefits to OEMs and users alike and is the ideal choice for implementation in consumer electronic devices which require a combination of extremely high performance and low power consumption rates such as the Galaxy A5 (2016). When the user places his or her finger on it, the ET320 instantaneously scrutinizes the fingerprint in order to authenticate and verify the identity of the user with the absolute highest degree of confidence and speed possible.

“We are extremely proud of this design win, as we believe that this is a major milestone for Egis and the culmination of over 2.5 years of relentless work and support. At the same time, this design win is infallible proof of our world class technology. Going forward, we are targeting to expand our collaboration with Samsung Electronics to even more models,” said Steve Ro, CEO of Egis Technology Inc.
