|The customers have placed orders for NEXT fingerprint sensors to be integrated in new mass market small product formats
NEXT Biometrics Group ASA announced it has recently received a number of orders within a range of new high potential fingerprint sensor markets.
During January, a total of 6 customers have placed orders for NEXT fingerprint sensors to be integrated in new mass market small product formats. The targeted products include payment-, home- and smartphone-related devices.
NEXT Biometrics said that customers have ordered SDK’s (Software Development Kit) and fingerprint sensor samples as part of their product development process. They all have requirements for large, high-performance fingerprint sensors and all target launch between the second half of 2015 or the first half of 2016 (H2-15 or H1-16).
Tore Etholm-Idsøe, CEO of NEXT Biometrics said, "The ‘Apple Effect’ is starting to make a significant impact in multiple new market segments. The general acceptance of fingerprinting is increasing fast. All of the customers requesting our products in January have made it clear that they need the quality of a large area fingerprint sensor at a very low price. In this market, NEXT is the only player. These 6 new projects each represent 6-digit volume potential."
