Fingerprint Cards AB: FPC launches FPC1021, a new touch sensor for Android and Windows mobile devices

Fingerprint Cards (FPC) today launches FPC1021, the smallest touch fingerprint
sensor to date from FPC. Building on the previously announced FPC1020
technology and our related market success, FPC1021 extends the FPC Touch
sensor range. FPC1021 is more than 30% smaller in size than the previously
launched FPC1020 and comes pre-integrated with software and matching
algorithms for Android and Windows, in order to facilitate minimal effort for
integration with device OEMs. FPC1021 combines industry-leading performance
with an aggressive reduction in sensor size compared with FPC1020. Despite
the smaller size, FPC1021's industry-leading performance has been possible
thanks to major advancements in the matching algorithm that comes embedded
with FPC1021. FPC1021's small size enables device OEMs to freely integrate a
touch fingerprint sensor into devices in cases where the device has physical
constraints in accommodating a touch fingerprint sensor.

Complete FPC1021 LGA sensors were sampled a few weeks ago and the first
deliveries of engineering samples to customers are starting now. Thanks to
the highly scalable architecture of FPC's touch fingerprint sensor
technology, which enables extensive reuse of the FPC1020 technology,
mass-market manufacturing will start during the third quarter of 2014, less
than three months later than the equivalent for FPC1020.

Jörgen Lantto, Executive Vice President, CTO and Head of Strategy&Product
Management at FPC, comments: "With FPC1021, FPC is demonstrating
that we are serious in our aim of leading the deployment of touch fingerprint
sensors for Android and Windows device OEMs. As previously announced, our
first touch fingerprint sensor FPC1020is now becoming integrated in the first
commercial mobile devices, and with FPC1021 our objective is to further
extend our leading position and confirm FPC as the market leader in touch
fingerprint sensors. FPC intends to continue to develop and launch globally
best-in-class touch and swipe sensor variants in the months and quarters to
