IDEX Biometrics launches TrustedBio to reduce biometric smartcard costs

IDEXIDEX Biometrics, a provider of fingerprint identification and authentication solutions, announced the launch of its TrustedBio today which is a new family of dual-interface products and solutions designed to reduce biometric smartcard cost while improving performance as well as security. The company helps individuals make payments, prove their identity, gain access to information, unlock devices or gain admittance to buildings through fingerprints.

The solution is expected to reduce the cost of building a biometric smartcard product and accelerate the adoption of it in the market.

Anthony Eaton, Chief Technology Officer, IDEX Biometrics expounded, “TrustedBi marks a major step forward for the biometric smartcard market which was accomplished by driving integration of the entire biometric system to an advanced semiconductor process node. With this new product family, card manufacturers and integrators will be able to more easily integrate biometric systems, improving smartcard security and user experience.”

He added, “By looking at ways to reduce costs associated with biometric systems we’ve removed one of the major barriers to mass production. Smartcard providers will now be better able to prepare for future Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) requirements and offer higher levels of security to their customers.”

IDEX has stated that it has built on its off-chip sensor technology with new biometric-system-on-chip based products. The system-on-chip approach lowers the cost of materials required to build a biometric smartcard. The new generation of products removes the need to have any electronic components laminated within the card’s inlay which is expected to lead to an improvement in the manufacturing processes and yields.
