TI Design Network Member IriTech Offers Embedded Iris Recognition Module, Starting At $110

DALLAS, Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Iris recognition is becoming an increasingly important biometric identification technology, growing at a compound annual rate of 27.5 percent, according to MarketsandMarkets' Global Biometrics Technology Market (2010-2015) report. Today, TI Design Network member IriTech announced the IriShield™ iris recognition module based on the TMS320C6748 DSP from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN). Starting at the low price of $110, the IriShield module maximizes system security of applications requiring secure access and identification, including mobile banking, time and attendance, and point of sale systems. The module also integrates seamlessly into customers' existing product lines at a low cost.

"Ranked no. 1 in accuracy and interoperability by the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST's) IREX test, IriTech's cutting-edge algorithms are featured in the IriShield module to maximize its true positive identification rates while minimizing false positives," said Dr. Daniel Kim, CEO and president, IriTech Inc. "TI's C6748 DSP processes these sophisticated algorithms and ensures accurate identification in real time."

Maximize system securityTI's C6748 DSP accelerates computationally intensive functions, enabling IriTech's embedded algorithms to complete a matching query against 1,000 stored user identities in 750 milliseconds. In addition, IriTech utilizes TI's DSP to securely store and communicate data using integrated security features.

"TI's DSPs offer parallel processing of computationally intensive algorithms to enable real-time biometrics access control and identification systems," said Matt Kurtz, business manager, Singlecore DSP, TI. "In addition, our C6748 DSP offers a variety of integrated security features to safeguard proprietary algorithms and sensitive user data, giving both systems developers and users the ultimate in security."

Seamless integrationIriTech's IriShield module—with a form factor smaller than a credit card— integrates seamlessly into customers' existing product lines and is easily portable. The module offers an out-of-the-box demo that can be up and running within minutes. With a fully featured, productized application programming interface (API), developers can quickly and easily access embedded iris recognition functionality from the host processor.

Pricing and availabilityIriTech's IriShield module, based on TI's C6748 DSP, is now available starting at $110 in 5,000-unit quantities — the lowest price in the industry. Unit pricing is $180. For more information about quantity pricing, please contact IriTech directly.

Analog integrationIriTech's IriShield module leverages TI's extensive analog IC portfolio. IriShield integrates TI's TPS650061 power management multi-channel IC (PMIC) solution as well as TI's TPS3805H33 high-accuracy dual voltage detector. The PMIC integrates one 1A buck converter with Spread-Spectrum-Clock (SSC) for reduced electromagnetic interference and two low drop-out regulators. The high integration reduces the bill of materials cost significantly by cutting six chips down to two.
