Fingerprints, Thales, biometric payment cardsFingerprint Cards (Fingerprints) has announced the development of a new generation of Thales Gemalto biometric payment cards, which is ready for global volume mass deployment. The new Thales solution, which features Fingerprints’ T-Shape sensor (T2) and biometric payment software platform, offers users advanced transaction speed, improved power efficiency and enhanced security.

The T2 sensor module, part of Fingerprints’ FPC1300-series, enables cost-effective production of biometric payment cards. Thanks to dual-row packaging, the biometric sensor has been tailored to allow easy integration using standard automated manufacturing processes.

This ensures reduced waste, optimizes production capacity and throughput, and lowers related manufacturing costs. The new card also comes with enhanced security features, including encryption, which adds additional privacy layers to the storage and communication of biometric data. The development of the fourth-generation card is an important milestone for the deployment of biometric payment cards at scale.

As innovation continues to lower market barriers, and consumers make their preferences clear, interest from banks in the biometric payment card continues to grow. Banks that seize the opportunity can leapfrog the competition and enhance customer acquisition, brand reputation and fraud reduction.

Fingerprint Cards or Fingerprints is the world’s leading biometrics company, with its roots in Sweden. Its technology consists of biometric sensors, processors, modules, software and algorithms that can be used, separately or in combination with each other, in a wide variety of use cases – from mobile and enterprise security to payments and smart homes. Its solutions are found in millions of devices and applications and are used billions of times every day, providing safe and convenient identification and authentication with a human touch.
