SANTA CLARA, Calif. — SecuGen is pleased to announce the immediate availability of two new ultra high capacity OEM fingerprint sensors, the SDA04M(TM) and the SDA04(TM). The SDA04M is intended for commercial biometrics applications, and the SDA04 is intended for government and commercial applications where FIPS 201/PIV compliance is required. The new SDA04 and SDA04M fingerprint sensors can register and store 10,000 users and perform blazingly fast one-to-many (1:N) searches on all 10,000. These sensors support either SecuGen proprietary templates or ANSI-INCITS 378-2004 standard templates for interoperability.

The ANSI-INCITS option utilizes SecuGen’s MINEX compliant algorithms that have been tested by NIST. Additionally, the SDA04’s fingerprint optic module is FBI certified for PIV compliance and meets FBI Image Quality Specs.

“We continue to push the envelope on embedded fingerprint sensors,” said Dan Riley, VP of Engineering for SecuGen. “Our goal, as always, is to provide our partners with the best tools available anywhere for building state of the art biometrics products. We are very pleased to be able to provide business partners around the world with these two new products.”

The SDA04M and SDA04 join the recently introduced SDA03M(TM) in ushering in a powerful new generation of standalone OEM fingerprint sensors built on SecuGen’s renowned rugged, accurate and high image quality fingerprint technology.

Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen added, “We are consistently working to provide the most versatile and most capable stand-alone OEM units available anywhere. We are excited about these products. Initial feedback has been very strong, and we believe that our partners will be able to compete exceedingly well in existing markets and will be able to pioneer new markets with the exceptional capabilities of the SDA04 and SDA04M.”
