IDEX to showcase its flexible card touch sensor at Trustech Conference in Cannes

IDEX, a leading developer of advanced fingerprint solutions for mass markets, will be exhibiting at the Trustech Conference in Cannes, France, from 29 November to 1 December. IDEX will showcase its flexible touch sensor embedded in an ISO-ID1 smartcard.

“IDEX’s polymer sensor is uniquely suited for card integration. The IDEX sensor is fully flexible and offers significant cost advantage over conventional silicon sensors due to the small silicon footprint”, said CEO of IDEX, Dr. Hemant Mardia. “IDEX unveiled the world’s first flexible sensor for ISO-ID1 in February, and has worked with the card ecosystem to deliver a fingerprint sensor that conforms with standard card mass manufacturing to create a scalable , low cost solution.”.

Dr. Mardia, has been invited to speak at the Trustech conference and will be presenting on the requirements for embedding fingerprint sensors in smartcards and IOT devices, markets in which IDEX has enabling solutions with its patented off-chip technology.

Using IDEX’s off-chip technology, the fingerprint image area can be scaled to get the best biometrics within power and size constraints for cards and IOT applications. Partnerships with blue chip companies in the card ecosystem ensures a scalable solution using existing card mass production lines. The flexible sensor is compatible for card operation with existing infrastructure, including relevant security protocols and Point of Sales terminals.

IDEX will be located at the hall Palais 01 at booth F038.

Trustech is the global and largest event for payment and identification with more than 18,000 attendees and more than 400 exhibitors and sponsors.
