The FingerQ is a smart biometric device security system consisting of a range of mobile peripherals and a proprietary secure software solution.
Further to the initial volume order for fingerprint sensors in January 2014 placed by WWTT on IDEX, WWTT and IDEX have collaborated to design in the IDEX fingerprint sensor into the FingerQ product line. This is expected to underpin volume shipments in second half of 2014.
“This fingerprint sensor solution offers enhanced user experience in a small form factor and is ideal for integration into the FingerQ biometric security system,” said Dr. Hemant Mardia, CEO of IDEX. “We are pleased to be integral to this showcase launch by WWTT.”
Apple’s release of its Touch ID technology in the iPhone 5S in September 2013 and Samsung’s recent addition of fingerprint sensors in their flagship Galaxy 5 is driving fingerprint technology into high demand, and the market is expected to show phenomenal growth. IDEX has seen a substantial increase in interest from Global OEMs in the last quarter.
FingerQ products will be showcased at exhibition booth N2A30 at the Mobile Asia Expo 2014 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) in Pudong, Shanghai, China 11-13 June 2014.
