Fingerprint Cards improves biometric sensors with new software launch

Fingerprint Cards has released its biometric software platform for payments, called FPC-BEP, which boosts the biometric sensors of payment cards, wearables and USB dongles.

With this new tool, the company can offer both card and device makers with the hardware and software to support biometric authentication.

Alongside this, Fingerprint has built a new in-house algorithm which has improved its ability and swiftness in verifying biometrics.

FPC-BEP has been built to maximise transaction speed, consumer convenience and security. The technology is able to capture the fingerprint and verify it within 0.3 seconds and has a 360-touch capability which means it is able to verify a finger in any orientation.

Each touch made with the platform is monitored and the algorithm is able to adapt to the user’s changing conditions.

Fingerprints CTO Pontus Jägemalm said, “Biometric performance can only be optimized when you consider the whole package; hardware and software working in harmony.

“Our technology is used billions of times every day, and now we have poured our long and unrivalled experience from the mobile world into this software platform to maximize the performance in low-power and low-computing-power payment environments.”

Last week, the RegTech released its new enrolment demo for biometric payment cards which speed up consumer onboarding.

When receiving the card, a user is provided with instructions on how to enrol on the system, taking just a few touches. The process is completed solely by the user and their biometric data is only stored on the payment card itself, ensuring data is not shared without the user’s consent.
