IDEX showcases its advances in fingerprint sensor technology at Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona

Oslo, Norway, 20 February 2014: IDEX ASA will showcase the company’s portfolio of fingerprint sensor technology at the Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona, Spain, next week.

“Mobile World Congress is the premier focal point for the mobile phone industry, and we are looking forward to demonstrate our products and technology to current and potential business partners at this year’s event,” said Dr. Hemant Mardia, CEO of IDEX.

IDEX will be demonstrating its leading-edge fingerprint sensors for consumer devices with significant innovations, and will also showcase concepts and demonstrators supporting its product roadmap which has been well received by major industry players who are actively seeking biometric solutions.

“Biometric authentication, mobile payment and elimination of PINs and passwords are major themes in the mobile ecosystem, and IDEX is a key participant in providing sensor and software solutions for this rapidly evolving market,” said Mardia. “IDEX is now one of only three principal established vendors of capacitive fingerprint sensors, and since Apple introduced a fingerprint sensor in the iPhone 5s, IDEX has experienced massive interest from the mobile phone industry,” he added.

Mobile World Congress is held at the Fira Gran Via in Barcelona, Spain, 24-27 February 2014.

IDEX will exhibit in Hall 1, stand 1C40.
