(SANTA CLARA, Calif.) — NEWS: SecuGen, the world’s leading optical fingerprint device and technology vendor, is pleased to announce that they will be demonstrating the U20-ASF-BT, a Bluetooth enabled OEM fingerprint sensor module at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January.

The ultra-compact, rugged and affordable U20-ASF-BT is SecuGen’s premium fingerprint solution that can be easily embedded into hardware products where space is at a premium and wireless connectivity is needed, such as handheld devices, mobile equipment, and wireless PC peripherals. Based on SecuGen’s flagship U20-A fingerprint sensor, the U20-ASF-BT is a standalone module that features a Bluetooth interface that lets it communicate with mobile devices and PCs with Bluetooth enabled.

The fingerprint module includes an easy to use set of commands that allows OEMs and developers to capture fingerprint images, extract templates, and enroll, search, and match fingerprint templates all within the module right out of the box. In addition, the module can be fully programmed from scratch to suit the needs of nearly any application.

The U20-ASF-BT combines SecuGen’s FBI-certified fingerprint sensor with a fully programmable Linux system integrated into an all-in-one compact package almost identical in size to the sensor itself. The U20-ASF-BT hardware is certified for use in the FIPS 201 PIV program under the Mobile ID FAP 20 category, and the template extraction and matching algorithms running on the device are NIST MINEX compliant.

A developer kit for the module is available and provides tools and technologies for developers and OEMs to rapidly and efficiently develop a potentially limitless variety of custom designed fingerprint biometric products. These tools include SecuGen’s fingerprint algorithm SDK as well as the OpenSSL cryptographic libraries for additional security enhancement.

“Bluetooth connectivity opens the opportunity to use SecuGen world class technology with a variety of Bluetooth enabled products and platforms,” stated Dan Riley, SecuGen VP of Engineering. “We are very excited to have developed a premium Bluetooth OEM fingerprint solution that has been repeatedly asked for by our OEM partners. We are proud to surpass their expectations by offering a fully featured and versatile product with an embedded Linux environment and high-quality sensor, all at an exceedingly low cost.”

“We are always listening closely to the requirements of our OEM partners,” added Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen. “We have never seen the level of demand that we are seeing for this product. SecuGen is truly excited to introduce the U20-ASF-BT. This breakthrough Bluetooth fingerprint module represents the culmination of many years of effort, technological innovation and commitment to delivering the world’s best optical fingerprint readers and sensors.”

SecuGen will be demonstrating the U20-ASF-BT sensor in booth #35232 in South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center from Tuesday January 8th through Friday January 11th.
