Suprema, a provider of biometrics and ID solutions, has announced that the company will showcase BioSign 3.0, an AI based in-display fingerprint authentication algorithm and LookSign, a 3D facial recognition solution at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona on February 26. Featured in Samsung Galaxy J5 2017 smartphones, Suprema BioSign is now far enhanced leveraging Suprema’s proprietary AI technology. Coupled with LookSign, the company’s latest 3D facial recognition solution, Suprema plans to penetrate next generation premium smartphone market. Suprema will also reveal LookSign, a 3D facial recognition technology for smartphones In the case of in-display fingerprint recognition, complexity of algorithm is known to be very high due to its sensor structure and imaging characteristics. Consequently, algorithm now plays more critical role in recognition performance compared to conventional sensors. The in-display oriented BioSign 3.0 provides higher level of recognition performance and speed by combining Suprema’s two decades of expertise in optical fingerprint imaging and AI technologies. The company teams up with major sensor producers around the world for next-generation premium smartphones. Industry cooperation for integrated solutions At the show, Suprema will also reveal LookSign, a 3D facial recognition technology for smartphones. Last year, the company launched FaceStation 2, a facial recognition access control terminal featuring Suprema’s own near-infra-red imaging technology. Award winner of Sweden’s Detektor International Award 2017 in Best Access Control Products, FaceStation 2 far outperforms the most of today’s facial recognition devices featuring the world’s fastest matching speed of 3,000 match/sec, highest operating illuminance up to 25,000 lx, and lowest error rate of FAR at 0.00002%. LookSign well blend FaceStation 2’s facial recognition technology with 3D image processing techniques to produce optimised algorithm for smartphones. LooksSign uses surface light source and patterned light to gain 2D and 3D information to provide more accurate recognition performance and higher security level. Suprema has a plan to discuss co-operation with sensor producers to develop integrated solutions at MWC 2018. BioSign 3.0 and LookSign will showcase a new leap in biometric technology in the smartphone market" Biometrics for smartphones “Suprema’s core competitiveness is ongoing technological innovation. BioSign 3.0 and LookSign will showcase a new leap in biometric technology in the smartphone market and attract more smartphone manufacturers,” said Brian Song, CEO at Suprema. “As a fingerprint recognition algorithm technology, BioSign provides superior authentication performance and matching speed even in a small sized fingerprint sensor of 4x3.2mm, and it is an essential solution for applying fingerprint recognition function to mid-to-low range smartphones as well as high-ends,” Song added.
SFM6000 Series brings significant improvements on hardware side to provide a robust solution for applications with harsh environment Suprema, a provider of biometric solutions, announced the launch of its new SFM6000 Series fingerprint embedded modules. Optimal fingerprint authentication Loaded with the range-leading 1GHz CPU and latest Suprema algorithm, the new SFM6000 Series achieves the world’s fastest matching speed of up to 5,000 matches per second and massive user capacity of up to 25,000 fingerprint templates. For developers, the new SFM6000 Series now allows the easier integration by supporting open source hardware platforms including Arduino and Raspberry Pi. SFM6000 Series is designed to provide optimal fingerprint authentication solution for various areas including access control terminals, time attendance devices, door locks, alarm panels, safes, vending machines automotive, ATMs, and fast-growing IoT applications. Complete backward compatibility Moreover, SFM6000 Series brings significant improvements on hardware side to provide a robust solution for applications with harsh environment. The new improved optical sensor structure now provides IP65-rated ingress protection and operating temperature is also extended from -15? to 60?. “Suprema’s new SFM6000 Series is our answer to dynamic market demands from leading global manufacturers” SFM6000 Series also provides complete backward compatibility by maintaining SFM5000 & 3000’s form factor and sensor types. This allows existing customers of SFM5000 & 3000 Series to put minimal effort in adoption of improved benefits of SFM6000 Series fingerprint modules. Answering dynamic market demands “Suprema’s new SFM6000 Series is our answer to dynamic market demands from leading global manufacturers. SFM6000 Series will be the first choice for those who aims to build a best-of-breed fingerprint terminals and will also address growing demand from open source hardware applications,” said Brian Song, CEO at Suprema. “With biometrics becoming more popular for IoT, SFM6000 Series will provide our customers better opportunity to penetrate their business into this emerging market,” Song added. Suprema is the world’s largest provider of fingerprint embedded modules and has shipped more than a million modules till today.
