NEXT has received a purchase order for its unique area fingerprint sensor system from a major Chinese System Integrator. After initial meetings late December and subsequent testing of the area sensor system, this new NEXT partner has now ordered a first batch of sensors for design-in in a wide range of their existing applications.

The Customer, a leading supplier to corporate and governmental clients, aims to substitute their present range of optical sensors with the NEXT generation of full scale – low cost fingerprint area sensors.

The parties expect that area fingerprint sensor systems based on NEXT’s unique and patented technology, will significantly grow the overall size of the market.

Volume deliveries are expected to commence from Q2-14.
