The latest generation of Suprema‘s flagship ultra-slim fingerprint sensor technology has now found its way into a new Identity and Access Management tablet from Mexico-based SIASA (“Sistemas Integrales de Automatización”).
The tablet, dubbed the ‘BioPad’, incorporates Suprema’s BioMini Slim 3 module, which is of course the followup to the BioMini Slim 2S launched in the autumn of 2017. Whereas that compact module was compliant with the FBI’s FAP 20 PIV specification, the BioMini Slim 30 is FAP 30 compliant.
It also offers a large surface area, and features a liveness detection algorithm, called “Fake Finger Detection”, designed to spot spoofing attacks.
The BioPad, meanwhile, features an eight-inch touchscreen and 1.8 GHz processor, as well as a 13.56 MHz contactless smart card reader. It boasts of IP67 rated water and dust resistance, and supports WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. A special version of the tablet will also feature a Zebra SE7410 barcode reader.
SIASA is a distributor of access control and time and attendance technologies for the enterprise, and will be marketing the new device primarily at that sector. The company plans to launch the BioPad in Mexico and the Latin American market this month.
