Fingerprints, Infenion, Secora PaySwedish biometric card maker Fingerprint Cards has signed a key development and commercialization agreement with Infineon Technologies. The goal of the cooperation is to make biometric smart card production as simple and easy as a standard dual-interface payment card.

The ‘Secora Pay Bio’ design combines the Fingerprints FPC1323 sensor and biometric software algorithm with Infineon’s upcoming SLC39B Secure Element. This solution will come with a pre-certified Java Card operating system including Mastercard and Visa bio-applets.

The Infineon Biometric Coil on Module (BCoM) package allows card manufacturers to use already existing equipment to produce biometric payment cards and enable scalable and efficient volume production.

“Our collaboration with Infineon will further push the boundaries of producing biometric payment cards with new, innovative product designs for the mass market,” said Michel Roig, President of Payment & Access at Fingerprints. “By combining and integrating the leading components, Fingerprints’ FPC1323 and Infineon’s SLC39B secured system-on-chip, into one system package, we will offer proven biometric performance executed in a single chip.”

SECORA Pay Bio will extend Infineon’s SECORA Pay turnkey solution family to address the segment of biometric banking cards.

Tolgahan Yildiz, Head of Payment Solutions at Infineon’s Connected Secure Systems Division said, “The cooperation agreement with our strategic partner Fingerprints is an important milestone in enabling easy-to-manufacture, cost-effective, and highly scalable biometric card production simply with existing tools at no additional CAPEX for our customers. This milestone also ratifies Infineon’s true commitment to biometric smart cards, where we will continue to work and innovate diligently with our partners to enable a great customer journey with biometric smart cards from production and enrollment, up until payment at retail stores for secured and seamless transactions.”
