CES Booth IP228
San Jose, California, January 8, 2007 – Validity Sensors, Inc., a privately held biometric company specializing in high quality durable fingerprint sensors, today announced its smallest sensors to date, the VFS200 family of products.
VFS200 products inherit the same durable LiveFlexTM technology pioneered by Validity in the development of the VFS131 fingerprint sensor, which has enjoyed great success in the ruggedized NotePC marketplace exceeding the stringent requirements posed by demanding OEMs and world governments alike. The evolution to a Dual Line Imager (DLI) has made smaller, more traditional swipe sensor dimensions possible. The VFS200 family of sensors delivers LiveFlex durability in a small exposed swipe area of 12mm X 3mm, giving an alternative option to fragile silicon sensors when small size is required.
The first product available from the VFS200 family is the USB based VFS201, which integrates easily into PC market devices such as consumer and enterprise notebooks and peripherals. Users can easily swipe their finger over an extremely durable plastic surface for password replacement, authentication, identification, securing important data, and more.
The SPI based VFS202 is the second product available from the VFS200 family. The VFS202 integrates well in mobile, embedded, and access control devices. Validity provides the SPI development kits necessary to support integrations with ARM based processors, enabling the quickest time to market for fingerprint enabled devices.
“The VFS200 family of products carries on Validity’s World class secure and convenient fingerprint technology in a smaller form factor,” noted Jalil Shaikh, Validity’s CEO. “We are excited to introduce these DLI products as they allow for the most flexible options in packaging designs while maintaining compatibility with less robust silicon sensors.”
The VFS201 is available for evaluation today. Visit www.validityinc.com for more information.
