FPC revises its sales volume for BTPs to 30 million units for 2013.

The Biometric Track Pad (BTP) product has now been finalized for mass production and is available in many different colors, shapes and forms to address the growing interest from leading mobile phone and tablet suppliers. The BTP will be manufactured at CT’s packaging plants. CT has also perfected the navigation function, based on its leading experience from navigation capabilities in Optical Track Pads.

FPC has initiated the ramp-up of its wafer supply for use in the BTP. Considering the latest market developments, FPC now foresees significantly higher demand from the mobile market and therefore revises the sales volume expectation for the BTP in 2013 to 30 million units from the earlier guidance of 20-40 million units during 2012 – 2014. FPC has also completed the driver porting for several major mobile phone platforms, thus reducing the time-to-market for mobile phone and tablet customers.

In March 2012, FPC and CT signed a JDA. Since then, CT has integrated the FPC swipe sensor silicon into its BTP and is currently designing it to meet the needs of several leading mobile phone and tablet players. Since the acquisition of FPC’s competitor Authentec, the already strong interest in the BTP from suppliers of mobile phones and tablets has increased significantly.

Comments from CEO, Charles Ahn of CrucialTec
“The cooperation between the two companies has been very successful. With extensive experience in modulization and strength in marketing, CrucialTec will contribute to this partnership and provide compelling products to our customers.”

Comments from Johan Carlström, CEO of FPC
“The cooperation between FPC and CrucialTec has been very successful and the BTP solution, which is clearly appealing to most mobile manufacturers, is establishing itself as the preferred choice in the mobile industry. CrucialTec has created excellent packaging and esthetic appearance in several variants depending on customer needs and excellent navigation capabilities, while FPC contributes world-leading biometric silicon performance, stable drivers, algorithms and creative Android applications. The partnership of FPC and CT is a very strong combination and in 2013 we aim to be the No. 1 choice in the growing market for biometry in mobiles and tablets.”
