Tore Etholm-Idsoe, CEO of NEXT Biometrics, says, “For the first time the market is offered a full size, high quality sensor solution combined with embedded processing, and all done cost efficient.

We expect the 1411-S to open a range of new volume markets for fingerprinting. Now developers can integrate these secure and convenient modules with specifications strong enough to be used by close to 100% of a given user group. This is key in applications like a key fob, remote control or a token, where there is no pin-code or password offered as a backup. Just as important is the fact that we can offer all this at cost levels compatible with what these markets can sustain«.
