IDEX Biometrics, a leading provider of advanced fingerprint identification and authentication solutions, is now shipping its next generation, TrustedBio, fingerprint sensors and biometric solutions produced by its mass production supply chain. The advanced 40 nanometer TrustedBio ASIC is being produced by TSMC, the world's largest silicon foundry. Final assembly and test of the TrustedBio system module are performed by one of the world's top providers of outsourced semiconductor packaging and test services (OSAT), which has a proven track record in mass production manufacturing.The shipments are fulfilling both a new order from a tier 1 European card manufacturer and previously announced orders from multiple customers, including IDEX's solution partner, Zwipe.Biometric payment cards incorporating the TrustedBio sensor are anticipated to begin shipping in volume from card manufacturers to banks and issuers later in 2021. “With volume orders being received, including a new order from a leading tier 1 card manufacturer, we knew it was important to ensure our supply chain was 'fit for purpose',” said Vince Graziani, CEO of IDEX Biometrics. “It is satisfying to see that all of the team's hard work, in establishing an appropriate mass production ready supply chain, is paying off. TrustedBio is ready for the masses.”
