Fingerprints teams with NXP

31/10/17

Biometrics firm Fingerprints has announced it is collaborating with NXP Semiconductors in its new contactless fingerprint-on-card technology. 

The company says this collaboration marks another important milestone for Fingerprints in the execution of its smart card strategy.

“We chose Fingerprints’ sensor technology as it is a leader in fingerprint sensors with market proven leading edge performance in power consumption that enables our solution to be battery- and contactless,” says Philippe Dubois, general manager of Payment at NXP Semiconductors. 

To ensure a lower barrier of entry for card makers, NXP’s secure fingerprint authentication solution for cards does not require a battery and fits into standard card maker equipment as part of the broader payment ecosystem. Cards with fingerprint authentication are fully compliant with existing EMVCo point-of-sale (POS) systems.

“Collaboration is key in the smart card ecosystem,” says Thomas Rex, SVP Business Line Smartcards at Fingerprints. “NXP is a leading provider in smart cards. Together we aim to advance this market for smart card manufacturers of next generation payment cards.”
