Fully flexible fingerprint sensors and modules for Smart Cards. Suitable for use with hot and cold lamination processes.
NEXT’s flexible module exports an ISO/IEC 19794-2 fingerprint template to the secure element for match-on-card.
NEXT’s 12mm x 17mm and 12mm x 12mm fingerprint modules have been built into millions of notebooks from tier-1 manufacturers. They have consistently proven to be accurate and reliable in day-to-day use.
Our Aadhaar modules are STQC certified and ready to be used within the UIDAI ecosystem.
NEXT provides ergonomic USB fingerprint readers for Windows Logon, single-sign-on, and enterprise applications.
Readers come with the Windows Biometric Frameword (WBF) driver for Windows 7, 8.1, and 10, and device drivers for Android and Linux. We provide SDKs for image capture and biometric SDKs for enrollment and verification. Our Aadhaar readers are STQC certified and ready to be used within the UIDAI ecosystem.
NEXT’s Aadhaar readers and modules are STQC certified and ready to be deployed within the UIDAI ecosystem. They passed rigorous STQC field testing in May 2016 that included data from more than 5,000 users.
NEXT readers and modules come with a UIDAI certified Level-0 Registered Device Service (RD Service). We support Android (SafetyNet and MDM versions), Windows 7, 8.1, and 10, and embedded Linux. Downloads and more information on our RD Service Microsite.
NEXT One Touch Power SDK – offers full biometric functionality, including enrollment, verification (1:1 matching) and identification (1:many matching.)
NEXT One Touch Lite SDK – when a source SDK for embedded platforms with restricted resources is required, this SDK makes integration simple yet effective.
NEXT SDKs are fast (less than 1 second processing time, including image capture) and very accurate with biometrics error rates independently verified. NEXT SDKs use industry-leading biometric algorithms.

All development kits come with technical support: • Access to SDK and documentation via Support Portal • Support via NEXT field application engineers.
NEXT Active Thermal™ sensing technology produces clear, high-contrast images which lead to low biometric error rates. Accurate fingerprint images are recorded consistently under a variety of environmental conditions, including high humidity and rain. The NEXT Active Thermal™ sensor even works under water!
The patented NEXT Active Thermal™ sensing principle works by measuring heat conductivity. A low power heat pulse is applied to each sensor pixel over a short period of time and a response is measured. This response is different for pixels in proximity to a finger’s ridge or valley – to more effectively record fingerprint data.
NEXT Active Thermal™ sensors are manufactured using LTPS technology – the same technology used to make thin film transistor (TFT) screens for mobile phones and TVs. The manufacturing process for LTPS is economical even for very large area sensors. If desired, the sensing structure can be deposited on a flexible substrate, allowing the manufacture of flexible sensors — the ideal solution for smart cards.
“By developing and commercializing large, cost-efficient, high security fingerprint products, NEXT Biometrics will provide leading global system integrators and device manufacturers the means to replace password, PIN codes, signatures, photo-IDs and physical keys with the ultimate keys of security and convenience – the unique prints of the human finger.”
