BEFS applying for patents for commercializing
of ultrasonic fingerprint identification sensor technology
- Applying 7 patents for commercializing of ultrasonic fingerprint identification sensors,
the leading technology in the business
- Securing not only materials, process technology,
but also application systems as well as a product roadmap
BEFS, a core subsidiary of Cammsys for the biometric information security business, announced that 7 patents have been applied for commercialization of ultrasonic fingerprint identification sensors which are under development. Therefore BEFS and Cammsys could have secured the application system and product roadmap after materials and process technology for the business leading technology of ultrasonic fingerprint identification sensors.
Seven patent technologies include six technologies, which can identify not only ‘fingerprints’ but also two bio-data such as ‘finger veins’ or ‘touch pattern’ quickly and accurately and so can be applied for mobile payment systems; and one technology which allows self-certification by the PC of a user itself.
The company expects the business would get good momentum since the patent technologies could give technical support for the identification system to meet the various needs of clients and supply fingerprint sensors.
Currently, Cammsys and BEFS plan to manufacture the prototype of the ultrasonic fingerprint identification sensor in January and complete the final development by the first half of this year. Along with this, they will spur marketing activities according to the development timeline of strategic models for the next year of existing clients of the camera module business.
Young Tae Park, the CEO of Cammsys, said “The fingerprint identification sensor market tends to grow rapidly as the related application field expands including smart card or mobile payment” and “The strengths of the ultrasonic fingerprint identification sensor, which is under co-development, are a differentiated security, and are competitively priced. We will do our best for continuous technical development to launch the finished product within the year.”
Meanwhile, the ultrasonic fingerprint identification sensor, which is co-developed by Cammsys and BEFS, has high discrimination ability for forgery and alternation because it can identify the fingerprint pattern and finger veins simultaneously, and the low cost of production can be obtained by simplification and automation of the manufacturing process.
