Cypress Debuts Reliable, Secure Fingerprint Sensing Solution for Mobile Devices Through its Strategic Partnership with IDEX ASA

Cypress Semiconductor Corporation in conjunction with its strategic partner IDEX ASA introduced a fingerprint reader solution designed to bring reliable, easy-to-use user authentication to smart phones, tablets, wearable and other mobile devices. The TrueTouch Fingerprint Reader uses proprietary sensing circuitry and a unique touch sensor design to provide best-in-class fingerprint image quality and pattern matching accuracy improving security and delivering a superior user experience. The flexible solution enables designers to create custom home buttons with specialized shapes and sizes or to integrate the sensor into any mobile device's industrial design or home button. Consumers have increasingly embraced fingerprint readers as an alternative to keying in complex usernames, PINs and passwords. Mobile device OEMs and companies that sell via the Internet have gravitated toward the technology as the most secure way to validate a user's identity. Demand for fingerprint readers in mobile devices is forecast to grow at a compound annual rate of 47% through 2019, reaching annual shipments of more than 700 million units. Cypress will showcase its TrueTouch Fingerprint Reader, along with its extensive portfolio of capacitive touchscreen and touch-sensing solutions, at Mobile World Congress 2015 from March 2-5 in Hall 2, Stand 2C26MR at Fira Gran Via in Barcelona. The TrueTouch Fingerprint Reader leverages IP from Oslo, Norway-based IDEX ASA. Cypress announced a strategic partnership with IDEX last year, enabling it to add IDEX's patented SmartFinger fingerprint sensing technology to its extensive portfolio of capacitive touch-sensing solutions. IDEX IP, plus the ability to work with IDEX's qualified sensor partners, will provide Cypress with immediate access to a broad range of global markets.

IDEX ASA Showcases Unique In-Glass Fingerprint Sensor for Mobile Display Integration at Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona

IDEX ASA showcased its unique in-glass fingerprint sensor at Mobile World Congress ("MWC") in Barcelona. Following last year's successful in glass swipe sensor demonstration at MWC, IDEX will this year show enhanced versions with superior biometric performance. The new in-glass demonstrator represents a major breakthrough for the company. The thickness of an actual mobile cover glass can cause severe distortion for most fingerprint sensing solutions and degradation of performance. A typical mobile cover glass is 500 or 700 microns to deliver the physical strength needed for everyday use, and this distance distorts the fingerprint image which must be resolved to at least 75 microns for good quality imaging. Thinner cover glass below 400 microns does not have the structural integrity required in a mobile device. The IDEX glass demonstrator at Barcelona this year will sense through either 500 micron or 700 micron with uncompromised high performance and reliability. This represents a major breakthrough for application to mobile devices and IDEX has been developing a sensor solution for mass production processes with key partners in order to support high volume opportunities. IDEX is extending this technology to in glass touch sensors. The fingerprint sensor presented is based on IDEX patented principles and knowhow, separating the finger interface from the electronics, as well as unique concepts enabling sensing in virtually any material such as glass, polymer and silicon. The sensor demonstrator has a form factor of an insert into hand-set cover glass which represents a cost optimized solution for volume manufacture. IDEX is demonstrating its glass fingerprint sensor and range of touch and swipe products at the IDEX meeting room in Hall 2 to selected customers during the MWC.
