JINCO selects IDEX Sensor for Dual-Interface Biometric Cards for Multiple Applications

Oslo, Norway – 23rd July 2018 – IDEX ASA, the leading provider of advanced fingerprint identification and authentication solutions, announces that JINCO Universal (“JINCO”) has successfully integrated its fingerprint sensors into dual-interface biometrics cards for multiple applications including payments and identification.

“JINCO is a leading smart card integration pioneer and we are very proud that they have chosen to integrate our fingerprint sensor into their dual-interface biometric cards,” says Stan Swearingen, CEO of IDEX.

“JINCO selected IDEX for its high performance, reference design and superior support which ensured that the development of our cards, with and without batteries, was achieved in record time” says Ted Lin, Chairman at JINCO Universal.

IDEX first launched its fingerprint sensor for dual-interface biometric cards in June 2017. The sensor has a superior power management system supporting the biometric card operation without a battery and works with standard NFC terminals. Based on IDEX’s off-chip sensor technology, the sensor is made of polymer, offering unique bendability at a highly competitive price.

IDEX is working with several other major card vendors who are also combining IDEX’s fingerprint sensors and biometric modules into their smart cards. Together with its customers and partners, IDEX is working to bring simple, secure and personal identification and authentication to all.
