Gothenburg, Sweden, 2016/05/10 - Fingerprint Cards (FPC) launches an embedded biometric module solution, FPC-BM, in a compact form factor - Fingerprints.com.
FPC-BM brings FPC’s world-leading capacitive fingerprint technology into a wide range of new applications, including access control, industry and healthcare, automotive, and Internet of Things (IoT).
The FPC-BM module is a complete embedded biometric fingerprint solution, including a robust FPC ingerprint sensor together with a biometric processor and on-board template storage. It can be used standalone, ready to use out-of-the-box at delivery, or connected to a host as an easy-to-integrate embedded solution. Simple serial commands are used to enrol and verify.
Complementing a range of existing embedded solutions, FPC-BM is compatible with the popular touch fingerprint sensors FPC1020 and FPC1021, and the ubiquitous area sensor FPC1011. An IP67-class (dust and waterproof) configuration is also available. This makes the FPC-BM suitable for demanding industrial conditions and all-weather applications. Hence, there are four FPC-BM configurations, meeting market demands.
Jörgen Lantto, President and CEO of FPC, comments: “With the introduction of the FPC-BM series of biometric modules, FPC shows continued commitment to expanding the application of our sensors, software, and technology across all market segments. In doing so, FPC strengthens its position in those market segments where we see positive indications of an increasing global demand for embedded biometric solutions.”
The FPC-BM brings together superior biometric performance and a high standard of quality components to offer an all-round embedded solution for increased security and enhanced user convenience. Currently in the final stages of commercialization, FPC-BM will be ready for mass production during Q2 2016. The first commercial applications incorporating the FPC-BM are expected in Q3 2016.
