NEXT CEO, Tore Etholm-Idsøe said: « Opposite to present market implementation of fingerprint sensors in smartphones, the major smartcard markets are all quality critical. This means that neither security nor level of convenience may be compromised and furthermore the cards needs to work every day, everywhere, indoors and outdoors for close to 100% of the targeted population. Having already secured the first two volume smartcard orders within the fingerprint sensor industry we remain confident that NEXT is uniquely positioned within this massive opportunity space. «
« At Cartes we will be showing our flexible sensor in the format of polysilicon sheets as well as singulated sensors. For the first time, we will also demonstrate fully functional demonstrators of our technology built into 0.76 mm (ISO ID-1 thickness) rigid smartcards. You will find us in Hall Lerins at Booth C016. « said Radek Matyasek, Vice President EMEA & SmartCard Segment Sales.
