Fingerprint Cards AB: Fingerprint Cards launches touch fingerprint sensor under cover glass

Fingerprint Cards (FPC) launches FPC1268, a new touch fingerprint sensor in
the FPC1200 series with FPC OneTouch®. The new sensor can be mounted under
the cover glass of the smartphone. Development of smartphones using the new
sensor has been started by lead smartphone manufacturers and the first
commercial devices are expected to reach the market in second half of 2016.

The introduction of the new FPC1268 touch fingerprint sensor enables
manufacturers of smartphones and other devices to further extend the design
language of integrating fingerprint sensors in the device. Using FPC1268, the
fingerprint sensor can be covered by standard cover glass used in
smartphones, in the non-active part below the display. FPC1268 can be
completely hidden under the cover glass of the smartphone allowing for
fingerprint capability without a dedicated button. Alternatively FPC1268 can
be used as home button covered by glass.

As with all FPC's fingerprint sensors, FPC1268 delivers industry leading
biometric performance, enabling a great user experience for secure user
verification. The first release of FPC1268 will enable cover glass of 300 µm,
however the sensor technology used in FPC1268 extends to enable cover glass
of up to 400 µm.

Jörgen Lantto, President and CEO of FPC, comments:"FPC1268 shows our
technology once more extending the barriers of what
fingerprint sensors have enabled to date. Using FPC1268, smartphone
manufacturers will be able to completely embed the fingerprint sensor beneath
the cover glass of the smartphone, enabling new innovative industrial
designs. Thanks to its cost effective design as well as the ease of
integrating FPC1268 together with the cover glass of the smartphone, FPC1268
enables a highly cost competitive solution for embedding a fingerprint sensor
under the cover glass. We are looking forward to seeing the launch of
flagship smartphones using FPC1268 during the second half of 2016 and in

FPC1268 has already passed extensive testing and verification, and engineering
samples are available to customers in cooperation with leading module houses.
Full qualification of FPC1268 is planned for Q2 2016 and the first
smartphones are planned for commercial launch during the second half 2016.
FPC1268 will be demonstrated to invited guests during Mobile World Congress
in Barcelona February 22-25, 2016.
