Fingerprint Cards: Fingerprint Cards (FPC) launches new thinner fingerprint sensor, FPC1011F3, with industry's best protection against electrostatic discharge (ESD)

Press release published at The Swedish Wire

Fingerprint Cards is today launching a new area sensor, FPC1011F3. Compared with its predecessors, the new FPC1011F3 has thinner design and offers increased protection against electrostatic discharge (ESD). It now has the industry's best ESD resistance. FPC1011F3 is in mass production and has already been chosen in high volumes by all major FPC customers.

The thinner design has been developed to further facilitate the integration of the low-power-consumption area sensor into small embedded biometric products, such as bank tokens and USB keys. Robustness is important in many applications and FPC1011F3 withstands an electrostatic discharge of ± 30 kV. The ability to handle high ESD discharges is very important to ensuring long life for electronic components.

FPC1011F3 is manufactured in the same production facility as FPC's existing area sensor with its qualified production methods, thus ensuring very high product quality with very few customer returns.

Christian Skeppstedt, Product Manager at Fingerprint Cards says: "We at FPC are constantly endeavoring to improve our products and to always be at the cutting edge in the biometric technology field. Our launch of FPC1011F3 emphasizes our intent to continue to invest in both area and swipe sensors. Area and swipe sensors complement each other by targeting different customer segments and both products are needed for FPC's continued success. The launch of FPC1011F3 is a key step in continuing to have competitive products and in maintaining FPC's dominant market position in, for example, the Chinese banking industry."
