AuthenTec’s TouchChip Fingerprint Sensor Added to Latitude E6520 Notebooks

The Dell Latitude E6520 notebook PC adds AuthenTec’s new FIPS 201-compliant TCETB1 TouchChip module for enhanced security.

AuthenTec TCS1CM_(FIPS-201) TouchChip sensor

AuthenTec, a provider of identity and security management solutions, and fingerprint sensors, has announced that its TouchChip module was suitable for notebooks and mobile ID terminal applications requiring identity verification of government contractors and employees. The TCS1 TouchChip sensor in the AuthenTec TCETB1 module is a silicon-based fingerprint sensor that meets the requirements of the Federal Information Processing Standard 201 (FIPS 201) for fingerprint authentication and image quality.

The Dell business laptop, Latitude E6520, has a durable display and a rugged metal case that complies with the military standards. It features multi-factor authentication with the AuthenTec TCS1-based TouchChip module having a smart card reader that is personal identity verification- (PIV-) compliant. The fingerprint security solutions enable compliance with federal standards.

The TCETB1 TouchChip module provides better power efficiency and is thinner than the optical fingerprint readers. It is suitable for small, portable mobile security devices. The module has a conductive metal bezel with a low profile. This helps reduce the thickness of the device to nearly half of the device thickness belonging to the previous generation. It also allows fitment into more devices. The TCETB1 module has a USB controller, and an on-board memory for calibrating the sensor data. It allows easy integration with smartcard readers, access control devices, mobile ID terminals, keyboards and notebooks.
