ORLANDO, Fla.– Sequiam Corporation, through its wholly owned subsidiary Sequiam Biometrics, Inc. (www.sequiambiometrics.com), a leading provider of biometric technology and services, announced the unveiling of its biometric security OEM (original equipment manufacture) kit during the recent 2006 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
Named SUBI (Sequiam Universal Biometric Interface) and developed in partnership with Massachusetts-based Analog Devices, Inc. (http://www.analog.com) (NYSE: ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal-processing applications, the product debut will be in the Analog Devices exhibit (suite N103).
The Sequiam Biometric OEM kit will allow any manufacturer to quickly add biometric access to existing product lines. The OEM kit features Analog Devices’ powerful Blackfin DSP as well as software development tools allowing easier manufacturer integration. The first OEM kit in the product line (Sequiam Universal Biometric Interface) features storage of up to 50 fingerprints and can run stand-alone or communicate through a serial interface. The system can actuate relays in devices such as safes, medical cabinets and electronic equipment. Anything that previously required a key, card, or PIN can be fitted with the OEM kit during the manufacturing process.
The product is expected to ship during the first quarter 2006. “With Sequiam’s established presence in the biometrics industry, the Company is in an excellent position to offer compelling features and benefits for both the manufacturer and product integrators,” said Kevin Henderson, President of Orlando-based Sequiam Corporation. “Our extensive experience in developing technology for mass markets has allowed us to create new price points in biometrics technology.” He added, “After evaluating numerous DSP providers, we found Analog Devices to have the best price performance ratio available. We are extremely pleased with the service and support they have provided.”
