AuthenTec’s Smart Sensor Improves Biometric Performance of Fujitsu Notebook

AuthenTec’s TruePrint smart sensor, along with lighted LEDs, has been incorporated in Fujitsu’s new high-definition, entertainment notebook FMV-BIBLO NW/G90T.

This new Fujitsu notebook that utilizes ‘Calpellia,’ the sixth-generation version of Intel’s mobile processing platform, is the first PC in the world to incorporate smart sensor along with lighted LEDs for scroll wheel like navigation and security. The smart sensor is surrounded by the lighted LEDs that provide sensor functions’ visual feedback to users like navigation and finger print authentication.

This 192-pixel wide sensor is installed under the notebook’s trackpad and provides extended biometric performance, form factor, functionality, low power consumption, and multi-packaging options, along with reduced bill of material expenses required for integration in PC peripherals and consumer notebooks. LED drivers are incorporated in this sensor for providing improved feedback to the PC user including programmable notifications and alerts.

In Japan, Fujitsu has offered the NW/G90T as a complete HD resolution entertainment notebook that has 18.4-inch screen as well as second screen of 4.0-inch size, multimedia speakers, wireless remote control, integrated digital TV tuner, and Blu-ray player. It is equipped with an Intel Core i5 430M 2.26 GHz processor, 4GB RAM, a 500 GB hard drive, HDMI output, NVIDIA GeForce GT335M graphics card, and Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium.

Paul Moore, Senior Director at Fujitsu America, explained that the smart sensor of Authentec along with the lighted LEDs has resulted in a new level of user feedback, penetration and security for the NW/G90T notebook. He added that Fujitsu is the first to incorporate the lighted smart sensor offering of Authentec, which enhances the entertainment experience of users in the all-in-one notebook.

Tom Aebli, Vice President of PC Products at Authentec, informed that Fujitsu is launching several Calpella-based PCs with the latest sensor technology from Authentec during 2010, but these are not as feature packed and striking as the NW/G90T.
