Collaboration Between Fingerprint Cards and Infineon Technologies Leads to Innovation in Biometric Authentication

Biometric sensor firm Fingerprint Cards has become a Premium Partner of semiconductor manufacturer Infineon Technologies. The collaboration between the two companies aims to bring stronger and more convenient authentication to a broader range of applications, making people's lives simpler and safer.

Michel Roig, President of Payment & Access at Fingerprint Cards, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership, stating that they will focus on driving innovation in current and future production lines, including access control, payment cards, and other applications within the high-security ecosystem.

Last year, Fingerprint Cards shipped more than 1 billion biometric sensors, solidifying its position as a leading provider in the industry. The company joins the Infineon Partner Ecosystem, which connects specialized engineering companies that demonstrate proven availability in designing solutions corresponding to market needs.

Tolgahan Yildiz, VP of Trusted Mobile Connectivity & Transactions at Infineon Technologies, believes biometrics can be a trusted link between the physical and digital worlds, enabling the full potential of digitization. The partnership with Fingerprint Cards is expected to strengthen collaboration and ensure innovation and growth in trusted biometric solutions for years to come.

The collaboration between Fingerprint Cards and Infineon Technologies is not new. The two companies previously worked together on the joint development of Infineon's Secora pay bio card.

Fingerprint Cards recently hired a new CEO and announced its intention to pivot away from the market for mobile sensors, which has matured. This strategic move follows less-than-stellar financial performance in recent quarters.
