AuthenTec announced the shipment of its 50 millionth fingerprint sensor.
Founded in October 1998, AuthenTec established a previous industry benchmark of 25 million sensors in November 2007 and took less than two years to double that mark to 50 million. AuthenTec’s 50 millionth sensor was shipped to Fujitsu Limited for integration into its smart phone, where it will be used for touch-powered features including security, navigation, personalization and convenience.
AuthenTec is an ISO 9001-certified provider of fingerprint sensors and solutions with a broad product and IP portfolio in the silicon fingerprint sensor industry. The company recently expanded its offering to include new smart sensor hardware, software and client applications for consumer PCs, netbooks and smart phones.
