Fingerprint Cards, Gemalto ensures order of fingerprint sensors for dual interface payment cards

Friday 22 February 2019 | 01:35 PM CET

Gemalto has partnered with Fingerprint Cards to bring additional performance to the next generation of dual interface payment cards.

Gemalto will offer biometric EMV payment cards to its bank customers, using Fingerprints' T-Shape sensor, and licensing the Biometric Software Platform for payments. The initial order confirms the commitment of both companies to accelerate the deployment of biometric payment cards.

Fingerprints' T-Shape module is optimised for integration into smartcards, and its low power consumption means that cards do not need a battery. Storage of biometric templates, and image matching are conducted securely on the card, thus ensuring data never leaves consumers' control.

Moreover, this initial order comprises a few hundred thousand sensors to be delivered during 2019 and 2020, and is the first volume order in the biometric smartcard industry.
