Norwegian firm NEXT Biometrics Group has launched its NB-1011-S fingerprint area sensor module, a serial interface sensor module targeting markets for physical access control, time and attendance, portable hard drives, smart card readers, safety boxes, voting machines and more.
NEXT Biometrics CEO Tore Etholm-Idsøe, said: “We have now shrunk the total module size of our 12x17-millimeter-sized sensor. The new NEXT NB-1011-S module matches the module dimensions of existing high-cost solutions. This allows fast and cost efficient implementation of our module in already existing market devices.”
Etholm-Idsøe added: “Furthermore, the new NEXT Biometrics NB-1011-S fingerprint area sensor module offers 201-square-millimeter active sensing area, compared with less than 150 square millimeters for the relevant competitors, giving the NEXT sensor significantly better overall performance.
“NEXT Biometrics is the first supplier able to combine a proven and robust large sensor area with a low price. Our sensor is tolerant against dirty, damaged, wet and cold fingers, and offers by far the best value for money in today’s fingerprint sensor market.”
