Asian win for IDEX

09/08/17

IDEX has received an initial order to deliver its off-chip fingerprint sensors for cards to a major Asian authentication and security card customer. The sensors will be integrated in the customer's biometric ISO form factor card for government identification and access control applications, and is expected to be delivered during the second half of 2017.

“The interest for biometric cards has increased significantly over the last quarters, and IDEX is experiencing strong customer demand for fingerprint sensors for card applications,” says Dr Hemant Mardia, CEO, IDEX. “The consistent feedback we are receiving is that it has been challenging to find sensor solutions that are ready for mass production in the market, and that IDEX has overcome this challenge. This customer is very knowledgeable in the smart card sector, and we are excited that they have chosen our solution. This customer is a high-volume producer with a strong global market footprint. The company is targeting multiple industries, including government, telecom, financial services and corporate customers. We expect to sample additional customers in the second half of 2017.”
