Crossmatch 500 ppi single finger readers exceed sales milestone in India

Crossmatch 500 ppi single finger readers exceed sales milestone in India
Crossmatch, a biometric identity management and secure authentication solution provider, announced that sales of its 500 ppi silicon and optical single finger readers, modules and sensors in India surpassed 750,000 units, primarily through its Indian partner AqTronics Technologies and their affiliates.

The company’s silicon-based TouchChip line of readers, modules and sensors provide a low profile and small footprint for OEM device integration. Fingerprint images are captured at the well-established native 500 ppi standard as required by the Standardization Testing and Quality Certification (STQC) and FBI. This ensures the ability to capture digital imaging at the highest commercial resolution, providing the broadest range of finger features including those of the very young and old, which results in fast, accurate matching performance for mission critical Aadhaar applications. 500 ppi is also the native resolution at which fingerprints were initially enrolled in the Aadhaar program, as mandated by STQC, further enhancing match speed and accuracy.

The TouchChip line includes touch and swipe sensor configurations, as well as a chipset model for on-device matching. Surface coating options are also available for added durability in extremely high volume and/or harsh environment use cases. It is estimated that Crossmatch biometric modules are embedded in approximately 50% of the fingerprint-enabled point-of-sale devices in the market.

The TouchChip line, U.are.U 500 ppi optical fingerprint readers and modules provide fast, high-quality fingerprint image capture for a wide range of skin conditions, are easy to use and are offered at economical price points. A robust software development kit (SDK) enables developers to rapidly integrate the benefits of fingerprint biometrics for assured identity.

“India represents an important market for the company,” noted John Hinmon, marketing lead for Crossmatch. “Through our valued local partners and distributors, the U.are.U and TouchChip lines are sold for use in a wide range of applications, including secure transaction authentication, supported by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) Aadhaar program.”

Crossmatch is currently in the UIDAI Biometric Authentication Devices – L1-Registered Device certification process with its TCS1 line of biometric readers, modules and sensors. The L1-Registered Device certification is to be used by all Authentication Eco partners in India.

Registered device certification refers to devices that are registered with the Aadhaar system for encryption key management. The Aadhaar authentication server can individually identify and validate these devices and manage encryption keys on each registered device.

As one of the original UIDAI STQC certified biometric capture device vendors, Crossmatch has a long history of providing high-performing biometric enrollment and verification devices in support of Aadhaar.
