IDEX ASA: IDEX to Showcase Fingerprint Sensors for Mobile and Card Applications at MWC 2016

IDEX ASA, a leader in fingerprint imaging and recognition technology and IP,
today announced that it will be demonstrating its full suite of fingerprint
sensor technology at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona on February
22-25. IDEX will showcase both customisable off-chip sensors and compact
silicon based sensor products for mobile device and smart card applications.

IDEX will be exhibiting at stand 1H25 and will also have a private room
available for meetings with customers, industry partners and investors at the
convention centre.

IDEX is the only company that offers both silicon sensors and off-chip
sensors. Together with its worldclass algorithms, IDEX is able to deliver a
complete high-performing fingerprint imaging and recognition solution. The
company's Cardinal silicon sensors and the Eagle off-chip sensors are both in
production today and IDEX recently announced the first volume order for a
tier-one mobile OEM handset manufacturer.

In addition to its portfolio of production-ready sensors, IDEX has developed
anInside Glass
sensor solution based on its patented, off-chip sensing technology. The
in-glass technology offers a compelling solution for mobile device
manufacturers. Mobile OEM's are demanding glass sensor solutions to provide
superior industrial design and durability at the user interface. Several
industry players are developing various under glass sensor solutions to meet
this demand, however, fingerprint sensing through mobile device cover glass
is extremely challenging. The cover glass is typically 400-700 micron thick
in order to be durable, and represents a major physical barrier for
fingerprint sensors that diminishes image quality and significantly impacts
sensor performance. IDEX'sInside Glass
solution is a unique break-through technology that removes the obstacle of
having to sense through glass. TheInside Glass
solution delivers superior sensor performance by reducing the distance between
the sensor and the user's finger, while maintaining the integrity and
durability of the cover glass.

In addition, IDEX recently announced the world's first flexible polymer touch
sensor for ISO-Card integration. This development is ground-breaking, given
the requirements for flexibility in cards, and the solution also leverages
IDEX's off-chip technology to produce a thin and flexible sensor suitable for
card integration and high-volume manufacturing. A demonstration of the sensor
will be provided to select partners at MWC.

A
bout IDEX

IDEX has developed the world's most advanced fingerprint imaging, recognition
and authentication technology. IDEX's innovative Intellectual Property (IP)
is protected by a comprehensive portfolio of more than 225 patents, and IDEX
continues to enhance the portfolio with its commitment to ongoing world class
research and innovation.

The IDEX business model involves the design of fingerprint sensor IP and
products. IDEX sells fingerprint sensor products, and licences its technology
to global Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) partners. These partners
utilise IDEX IP in a range of innovative biometrically enabled products and
pay IDEX either a royalty on every product item produced, or purchase the
fingerprint sensor units.

IDEX's addressable market represents a multi-billion unit opportunity, centred
on three core markets:

* Mobile Devices
* ID security and Smart Cards
* The Internet of Things

IDEX has an exciting and competitive product ready road map including swipe
sensors, touch sensors with disruptive cost positions, and a unique in-glass
solution. The Company is currently in the process of commercialising these
products.

In February 2016, IDEX announced that it had received its first production
order for its Cardinal touch fingerprint sensor optimized for tier-one mobile
handsets, IDEX will begin to ship units in the second quarter 2016.

IDEX also recently announced it had developed the world's first flexible
polymer touch sensor suitable for ISO-card integration.
