Precise Biometrics announces product upgrade


Precise Biometrics has announced an upgrade of its fingerprint solution for smart cards that, the company says, will lower total product costs, supporting the growth of biometric payment cards. 

The company says the upgrade of its Precise BioMatch Embedded, supports even smaller fingerprint sensors with an area down to 30 mm2 and constrained MCUs that enable power efficient biometric smart cards, while meeting the biometric performance requirements set by the payment card industry. By enabling the use of smaller sensors, the total product costs can be decreased. The software solution will be available for customers in December 2017.
“Consumers are eager to start using biometric payment cards as seen from the first market trials earlier this year,” says Håkan Persson, CEO, Precise Biometrics. “Our enhanced fingerprint solution will accelerate the introduction of biometric smart cards by lowering total product costs and maintaining high biometric performance.” 

He adds: “The combination of contactless payment and fingerprint authentication brings a new level of convenience to consumers and minimises the risk of identity theft and fraud. With an annual addressable market of more than two billion payment cards, contactless biometric payment cards have the potential to become the next major growth market for fingerprint technology.”
