AuthenTec's TCS1 module, mounted on the back of the MORIS[TM] mobile ID terminal, allows police to capture high resolution (500 DPI) fingerprint images which are encrypted and transmitted for comparison against fingerprints of known criminals.
AuthenTec's TCS1 TouchChip provides the high-resolution fingerprint images required for comparison to the FBI's huge database of fingerprints, allowing police in the field to make quick and positive fingerprint identification on the spot.
UPEK's achievement of offering the first silicon sensor to meet this demanding set of requirements will allow the use of the TouchChip TCS1 fingerprint sensor in many applications previously requiring larger, more expensive optical sensors.
UPEK has worked diligently to optimize the TouchChip TCS1 fingerprint capture system to meet the demanding requirements established by NIST and the FBI for Single Fingerprint Capture Devices," said Mike Chaudoin, Director of Standards and Security at UPEK.
the leading brand of biometric fingerprint security solutions, today announced that Cogent Systems (Nasdaq:COGT) is deploying UPEK's TCS1 TouchChip(R) Fingerprint Sensors with Cogent's fingerprint algorithms to provide secure fingerprint authentication solutions for a variety of government, physical access and commercial applications.
Cogent Systems has integrated UPEK's TCS1 TouchChip Fingerprint Sensor across a broad set of products including the Smart-Gate(R), Search-Gate(R), Mag-Gate(R) and SC-Gate(R) physical access control devices requiring on-device, network-based or card-based access control applications.
The UPEK TouchChip(R) TCS1 fingerprint sensor marks the first and only silicon-based fingerprint sensor designed to comply with the FIPS201 and HSPD-12 common standards for Federal employees and contractors.
