FPC Launches FPC1020, A Touch Fingerprint Sensor For Integration In Windows™ Devices

GOTHENBURG, Sweden, November 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Fingerprint Cards (FPC) today introduces FPC1020, a small capacitive touch fingerprint sensor specifically developed for integration in devices using Windows operating systems. FPC1020 is optimized to offer smartphone, tablet and PC OEMs unprecedented performance and enables OEMs to relieve consumers from the burden of using PIN codes and passwords for user verification. FPC1020 has been developed by taking advantage of the aggregated knowhow and technology leadership developed within FPC since 1997. Experiences from fifteen years of touch fingerprint sensor deployments are combined with FPC's market leadership in the smartphone market, having integrated the FPC1080 swipe sensors in mobile phones fast approaching tens of millions of units.  

The FPC1020 silicon sampled a few weeks ago and the first deliveries of engineering samples of complete sensor modules to customers are planned during the coming weeks.

Jӧrgen Lantto, Executive Vice President, CTO and Head of Strategy and Product Management at FPC, comments:   "FPC1020 will enable device OEMs to offer consumers a compelling user experience combining great convenience and security with excellent performance and appealing design. Thanks to Microsoft's extensive efforts to provide a fully integrated support for biometry and in particular touch fingerprint sensors with Windows 8.1, we see a very strong potential with the Windows based devices market segment. We are delighted to respond to this opportunity by introducing a capacitive touch fingerprint sensor optimized for integration in devices using Windows."

Dustin Ingalls, Partner Group Program Manager at Microsoft Inc, comments : "We are strongly committed to biometrics and especially capacitive fingerprint sensors as a way to improve the user experience when using Windows enabled devices. As previously announced, we see major benefits with touch fingerprint sensors so we are pleased to see partners like FPC executing on their development plans and now sampling their new FPC1020 sensor with partners and customers. We look forward to seeing progressive OEMs deliver devices with these new touch based sensors into the marketplace in 2014."
