Fingerprint technology provider Precise Biometrics has launched a new algorithm solution dubbed Precise BioMatch Card to match fingerprints in smart cards.Intended for secure and convenient authentication of identity, the BioMatch Card can identify fingerprints in 'constrained' computing settings, including Secure Elements (SEs).SE is a processor chip embedded on biometric smart cards to offer protection against fraud. The Precise BioMatch solution can support fingerprint sensors with an area down to 30mm2.Previously, the card was a part of Precise BioMatch Embedded and has now been released as a stand-alone solution into the smart card market.Precise Biometrics executive chairman of board Torgny Hellström said: “Smart cards is the next growth area for fingerprint technology. In payment cards alone, there are over three billion cards issued globally every year.”As a frontrunner in the development of biometric payment cards, it´s important for us to provide Precise BioMatch Card that specifically addresses this market.”The solution has been deployed in various trials such as AirPlus International's contactless payment card and Visa's biometric cards project.In addition to Precise BioMatch Card, the company's portfolio of algorithm solutions for fingerprint recognition comprises Precise BioMatch Mobile for use in smartphones and Precise BioMatch Embedded for wearables, cars and connected devices (IoT).
