NEXT Applications


NEXT Biometrics is focused on serving four key market segments with its secure, easy-to-use fingerprint sensor technology. The company is a proven supplier of advanced solutions for the smart card, government ID, access control and notebook markets.

Smart Cards

NEXT has designed its large-size flexible sensors to meet the demanding requirements of the fast growing biometric smart card market. Full physical flexibility, durability, ease of enrollment and intuitive usage are some of the key attributes of NEXT’s flexible fingerprint sensor product line for smart cards.

Government ID

Biometric government ID applications require high performance, accurate fingerprint sensors, where low user rejection rates are essential. The NEXT Biometrics government ID product line addresses those requirements, while delivering the industry’s most competitive pricing per active sensor area.

Access control

Access Control represents the most mature market for biometrics. Fingerprint sensor-based systems have consistently proven to be the best solution for this space. NEXT’s highly accurate, large size sensors are ideally suited for access control uses.


Fingerprint sensors have become a standard feature in many of today’s notebooks and tablets. Fingerprint authentication helps to increase security and productivity and NEXT continues to support top tier notebook manufacturers with fingerprint sensor technology to help them achieve both these goals.
