December 2, 2013 – 

Zwipe has just launched a biometric access card, with fingerprint touch sensors from Fingerprint Cards.

According to the company, the new card is multi-functional and is ISO 14443 compliant. Fingerprint data is stored on the card itself.

“Providing secure personal ID authentication in an easy-to-use portable device has been our goal,” Kim Kristian Humborstad, CEO of Zwipe said. “Together with FPC’s touch sensor, we have achieved this in our Zwipe Access biometric card. The card provides a secure environment, protecting user data while still being able to communicate easily with access control systems using standard interfaces. FPC’s fingerprint sensors deliver the performance and functionality that our card product requires in an application where low power consumption and compact size are crucial.”

“The access control market using cards and tokens is expanding constantly and the challenge is to combine security with user convenience,” Thomas Rex, EVP Sales Marketing of Fingerprint Cards said. “Zwipe’s biometric card is the solution to this and is a state-of-the-art product that really pushes the limits to what is possible to do on a card today. The use of a touch sensor provides an enhanced user experience and is in line with the worldwide trend of integrating touch sensors into portable devices.”

Reported previously, Fingerprint Cards also recently launched a capacitive fingerprint touch sensor for Android and Windows that had a major effect on the company’s share price almost instantly.

According to a recently-published report, the overall electronic access control systems market has recovered post recessions and is showing promising growth, owed largely to renewed interest in card-based security projects. The overall market is set to reach $16.3 billion by 2017, growing at a CAGR of 7%.
