Fingerprint Cards Continues Its Design Win Streak, Put Swipe Sensors on a Smartphone

9436_fingerprint-cards_fingerprintcardslogoFingerprint Cards AB (FPC), fresh off of last week’s design wins (DW) in the Asian market, was awarded yet again, this time a DW from an existing prominent Asian OEM customer. The agreement will have FPC swipe sensor technology included on a smartphone slated for a Q1 2014 launch by a US operator.

As with the previously announced Asian design wins, the manufacturer is choosing to remain anonymous at this time, due to the competitive marketplace that’s been swarming around biometric sensors on smartphones. On launch this will mark the first smartphone launched with FPC swipe sensor technology outside of the Asian markets, the previous biometric-ready mobiles having launched in Japan and Korea this past August.
