Next Biometrics Group AS to Launch Reduced Size Sensor Modules Targeted at the Notebook, Tablet and SmartPhone Mass Markets
Jun 10 14
Next Biometrics Group AS to launch reduced size sensor modules targeted at the Notebook, Tablet and SmartPhone Mass Markets. The first step in the NEXT sizedown roadmap involves launch of the NB-2020 - a sensor module 40% smaller than the present NEXT sensor series. This size down is achieved entirely at module level. Keeping the active area of the sensor at 201 mm2 maintains the sensor position as one of the most secure and convenient sensors in the market. The NB-2020 is ready in prototypes and will ship in volumes in fourth quarter of 2014. The second step in the NEXT size down roadmap includes size-down of the active area itself. The size will still be at size levels deemed credible for quality dependent applications. The final size and the launch date will be revealed to the market at a later point of time.
