Samsung selects Suprema biometrics

September 2017 Editor's Choice, Access Control & Identity Management, News

Suprema recently announced that the company’s BioSign mobile fingerprint authentication algorithm has been loaded in Samsung’s Galaxy J5 2017 and Galaxy A7 (for SK Telecom) smartphone models. Partnering with Egis Technology, a Taiwan-based sensor provider, Suprema provides its integrated solution to global smartphone manufacturers.

Earlier in February 2017, Suprema introduced BioSign 2.0 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Enhanced by the latest AI technology, BioSign 2.0 supports small fingerprint sensors and offers robust authentication performance over time and environment. Moreover, BioSign 2.0 provides versatility in integration as it supports different shapes and types of fingerprint sensors.

BioSign 2.0 is an essential solution for mid-to-low range smartphones as it reduces production cost by supporting smaller sensors and provides higher fingerprint authentication performance with low-end processors. BioSign 2.0 achieves 50 ms authentication speed in high-end smartphones with high performance processors and 100 ms speed with low-end processors while guaranteeing a maximum of 0.0005% FAR.

Moreover, smartphone users normally experience decreasing fingerprint authentication performance over usage time, but BioSign 2.0’s self-learning algorithm increases accuracy over usage. BioSign 2.0 can process authentication with a small area (2 mm x 2 mm) of fingerprint information and provides consistent performance with different shapes of sensors including bar, square and slim shapes.

BioMini Slim 2 integrated into IdentaMaster/IdentaMaster.Pro

Suprema has announced that the company’s latest BioMini Slim 2 fingerprint scanner is now integrated into IdentaMaster/IdentaMaster.Pro, a biometric matching system from IdentaZone.

IdentaZone is a New York-based biometrics firm producing IdentaMaster/IdentaMaster.Pro, which are designed for consumer and enterprise use. IdentaMaster/IdentaMaster.Pro provides identity management and encryption via biometric authentication that is interoperable with a variety of biometric devices and biometric technologies currently available. While IdentaMaster/IdentaMaster.Pro works with a wide range of fingerprint scanners, the company has made its latest integration with the BioMini Slim 2 FAP20 fingerprint scanner.

BioMini Slim 2 is the latest innovation in fingerprint authentication from Suprema. It features the world’s slimmest (16 mm in thickness) FAP20 optical sensor. It features Suprema’s proprietary Multi-Dynamic Range (MDR) technology, FBI PIV/FIPS 201/Mobile ID FAP20 compliance, full-speed USB 2.0 interface and Android device support.
