New Apple Patent Describes In-Display Touch ID
Posted on December 18, 2019
TweetLikePlusPin ItShare
Apple has been awarded a patent for an optical sensor that could be used for an under-display fingerprint scanner in a future iPhone, and a report from Patently Apple says the same sensor technology is already in use the new 16-inch MacBook Pro.

New Apple Patent Describes In-Display Touch ID
While previous iPhones with fingerprint scanners used capacitive sensors, this patent calls for an optical sensor, which relies on light from the smartphone’s display to produce a 2D image.

The fingerprint scanners on this year’s 13 and 15-inch MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air are of the capacitive variety, but the 16-inch MacBook Pro is equipped with the kind of optical sensor outlined in the patent, which Apple filed in 2017 and was awarded this week by the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). In the case of the 16-inch MacBook Pro, however, the sensor is embedded beneath the power button — the same location as the capacitive sensors on the other models.

As the patent explains how this sensor could be embedded under a device’s display:

“An optical image sensor is carried by the housing under the display. The optical image sensor senses biometric image data associated with a user, such as, for example, data representative of a biometric image of the fingerprint patterns of the user’s finger. The controller may perform an authentication function by matching the acquired biometric image data to the stored biometric template data stored in the memory, for example. The controller may perform and/or restrict functionality of the electronic device based upon the authentication.”

Apple used Touch ID for biometric authentication starting with 2013’s iPhone 5S up until the debut of Face ID in the iPhone X in 2017. There is speculation, however, as to whether Apple will bring back Touch ID in under-display form for its future iPhones.

The possibility of having a new form of Touch ID that takes advantage of an under-display fingerprint scanner and Face ID working together for a multimodal form of biometric authentication is one way that Apple may choose to go.

Samsung"s Booming Shipment Drives Quarterly Rise in Q2, Q4 Will See Revenue Peak
"Fingerprint resolution IC factory Egis (6462-TW) will hold a seminar today (13). Looking forward to the third quarter, Chief Financial Officer Zhang Jiaqi said that with the continued sales of low-end and mid-tier models such as Samsung A series, Egis will be launched prosperous shipments, coupled with small shipments by Chinese customers, continue to increase momentum. It is estimated that this quarter"s revenue will be better than the previous quarter. However, due to the overall environmental impact, the visibility of orders is still low. It is expected that the fourth quarter revenue will see a peak this year.
Zhang Jiaqi pointed out that the current revenue ratio of Egis optical products has far exceeded 50%, and white-collar ED panels have been adopted by low- and mid-tier models in the second half of the year, which is expected to drive the fingerprint recognition and shipment under the screen. After updating the software, the cost in the second half can be significantly reduced, and gross profit is expected to increase".


"Looking forward to the second half of the year, Zhang Jiaqi pointed out that due to the tide of mobile phone stocking in the second half of the year and the sales of major customers Samsung in Europe, the shipment of Egis increased significantly in the second half of the year, but due to the time difference in delivery, it will see in the fourth quarter It is expected that the fourth quarter of this year will be the peak of annual revenue.
Finally, in terms of the Egis and Goodix litigation, Zhang Jiaqi said that the Silead defendant had been prepared before, and that he had already cooperated with a well-known Chinese law firm, which is expected to minimize the harm, as for the client, It means that customers are less violent".

"The technology also provides a customized driving environment. Matching information of driver preference with fingerprint data, the vehicle automatically adjusts seating positions, connected car features, and side-view mirror angles according to the driver.

In the future, Hyundai Motor plans to further expand the application of the technology to allow the adjustment of temperature, steering wheel position, and many other features which will be tailored to driver’s preferences.

—Albert Biermann, President and Head of Research & Development Division of the Hyundai Motor Company

"The technical cooperation between Hyundai Mobis and Deep Glint is expected to be carried out in such areas as vehicle security authentication, driver status monitoring and an in-vehicle virtual assistant.

Vehicle authentication uses facial recognition technology to authenticate the driver. If a driver is identified, the door of the vehicle will be opened or it will start. As more and more electronic devices in vehicle are being integrated, interest over vehicle security against hacking smart keys or even worse the whole security system arises. For this reason, the industry is devoting to introducing technologies of using multiple authentication methods, such as fingerprint recognition coupled with near field communication (NFC). If individual’s biometrics are added under security authentication process, which Hyundai Mobis can achieve with Deep Glint, security will be much enhanced compared to replying only on physical devices".

FPC Makes Case for Fast Adoption of Biometric Payment Cards

FPC Makes Case for Fast Adoption of Biometric Payment Cards
There’s already substantial demand for the kind of payments solution that biometric cards promise, and they could pick up momentum much faster than previous payment card upgrades, argues Fingerprint Cards‘ Lina Andolf-Orup.

In a new post on the company’s website, Andolf-Orup, Fingerprint Cards’ head of marketing, offers an overview of some of the major milestones in the development of biometric payment cards over the past couple of years, and proceeds to offer some intriguing information from her company’s market research. According to Andolf-Orup, both consumers and banks consider contactless payments to be “the most important payment method,” with the 88 percent of the latter agreeing that “contactless is the main payment priority in the coming years.”

Where banks and consumers differ is in where they see the value of contactless payments. “For the banks, the biggest issue with contactless is being able to lift the payment cap, but security is consumers’ main concern,” Andolf-Orup says.

Here, of course, is where fingerprint-scanning payment cards can satisfy both parties, considerably boosting security enough that banks can raise their payment caps.

And there’s reason to think that biometric payment cards could catch on quite quickly. Andolf-Orup notes that Chip & PIN cards debuted in 1995 and took 18 years to reach one billion cards, while contactless card debuted in 2007 and took eight years to reach a billion cards. But in each of these cases, “the payment terminal infrastructure had to be upgraded, at a major effort and cost,” whereas biometric payment cards “already work in today’s contactless or contact-only terminals.”

That certainly suggests they could quickly pick up steam. In any case, however quickly the process happens, many now anticipate that biometric debit and credit cards will represent the next big wave in payments.

Biometric point-of-sale payments growth led by India, China

Biometric point-of-sale payments growth led by India, China
The installed base of contactless-enabled POS devices will register 107 percent growth by 2024, surpassing 161 million, says data in new paper from Juniper Research titled ‘Key Trends in the POS Hardware Market.’

Within five years, contactless POS devices will account for 94 percent of active devices, with growth from the rising use of contactless POS terminals in the U.S. and cashless payments to the detriment of cash. Mobile wallets and biometric payment cards could generate enhanced value if accepted for transactions on current POS devices, the company argues.

Traditional cash is rapidly being replaced by contactless transactions. According to Juniper Research, the average contactless transaction will increase to $23 in 2024, compared to less than $19 in 2019, with growth driven by the U.S.

In the Euro area in 2018, non-cash payments increased by 7.9 percent to 90.7 billion in 2018 compared to 2017. According to data from BIS (Bank for International Settlements), cited by Juniper Research in its whitepaper, “the value of banknotes and coins in circulation in the Euro area is steadily declining.” A cashless society could minimize costs, reduce risk and deliver faster transactions.

Biometric payment terminals are gaining popularity in emerging markets such as India and China, with global transaction values estimated at $254 million in 2024, compared to just $84 million in 2019.

“In India, where biometric identity schemes are bringing the unbanked into the financial system, this type of device has high potential,” explains research author Susannah Hampton. “It also has disruptive possibilities in developed regions, where biometric data is already being used in smartphones and identity documents, such as passports. We recommend that established POS hardware vendors develop biometric capabilities early to enable future revenue growth.”

The Aadhaar system adopted in India also enables payments because it is linked to bank accounts. Launched ten years ago, it is held by 95 percent of people in India, and 92 percent of them are satisfied with the national biometric ID scheme. Biometric payment methods such as face-payments and Aadhaar Pay do not need a POS terminal to be finalized.

In August, Mastercard launched a mobile authentication solution featuring behavioral biometrics in India to increase security and reduce friction in e-commerce transactions.

In September, South Korean financial solutions company Alliex announced investing some $700 million to deploy a shared cashless POS infrastructure system across Vietnam.

Unlike India, adoption in North America will not move as fast as in emerging countries. The growth will only be of some 2.5 percent over the next five years, while biometric-enabled POS terminals in West Europe and Central and East Europe will not grow by more than 1 percent, probably due to a high cost, writes Juniper Research.

In December, Mastercard found most Latin American and Caribbean consumers want biometric online payments, and is trailing biometric payment cards in Brazil and other countries. Recently, HID Global announced it was bringing its biometric fingerprint technology to point-of-sales systems for retail stores and restaurants through a partnership with BigWise, a company focused on Columbian, Chilean, Argentinian, and Peruvian markets.

Enda en viktig brikke er på plass! Nå kan bare 2020 komme :)

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has announced the release of three new biometric databases aimed at helping accelerate the development of more secure and accurate biometric identification systems.

The databases — knows as SD 300, SD 301, and SD 302 — contain different types of biometric data collected at different times including fingerprints, facial photographs and iris scans.

“The data will help anyone who is interested in testing the error rates of biometric identification systems,” said NIST Computer Scientist Greg Fiumara.

NIST has said that the datasets have been stripped of any sensitive information and that all individuals involved consented to having their data included.

The first of the three databases, SD 300, contains a collection of hardcopy fingerprints taken from 900 old ink cards, and is meant to help manufacturers of modern fingerprint scanners determine if their systems can properly read older ink records.

SD 301 is the first multimodal dataset that NIST has ever released, containing both fingerprint and facial biometric markers that are linked together and can be used as one set of identifying data.

The third database, SD 302, contains scrubbed fingerprint data collected by a mixture of eight devices — some commercially available, others just prototypes — from an Intelligence Advanced Research Procter Activity funded competition, aimed at improving fingerprint capture technology, that NIST helped to carry out.

The new databases have user guides to help researchers integrate them into their own work, and NIST says it plans to offer more datasets in the future to further the development of biometric identification.

“[The datasets] represent the first in what is intended to be an expanding collection of biometric resources,” officials from NIST said in a statement.

Spennende hva som skjuler seg bak samarbeidet PB har med NXP.. Litt arti at det også er Mastercard som står bak som en av bidragsyterne :)

Sami Nassar, vice president cybersecurity solutions at NXP added, “Using NXP’s secure element, wearable turnkey solutions like the Nymi Band can provide physical access to open enterprise or home doors, provide logical access to cloud services like email and data storage services and enable secure contactless payments.”

Nymi also demonstrated other applications at the RSA conference, including the Nymi Band’s ability to lock and unlock a computer based on proximity, as well as TOTP token generation and biometrically authenticated payments.

Nymi is privately funded by Ignition Partners, Relay Ventures, MasterCard and Salesforce Ventures and is preparing for the launch of the Nymi Band to enterprise customers later this year.

Mange spennende lanseringer fremover:

Det kunne jo ikke bli det siste innlegget i 2019 når nyhetene bare strømmer på :)
PB er taushetsbelagt over hvilken telefoner de er med i og hvilken piloter de er med i, det er dette som gjør det hele litt spennende.

Som dere kan se av innleggene under her, så er PB med i det aller meste av piloter innenfor biometriske kort, men det som nå utspiller seg over verdenskartet er av en helt annen dimensjon. Ikke rart det har vært stille rundt sertifikater, samarbeid, piloter og kunder.

De store aktørene som Apple, Samsung, Vivo, Huawai og Oppo har alle en ting til felles når det kommer til Biometrisk software - og det er PB. Når det er nå er utviklet og lansert en felles plattform for sikkerhet og godkjenning fra Mastercard. PB er eneste leverandør med sertifikat innenfor softvaren som legges til grunn for to-faktor autentisering.

The EMV 3-D Secure MIC platform allows for biometric identification, giving card-holders the added security of two-factor authentication, which Mastercard says decreases instances of online shopping cart abandonment and reduces cases of fraud while providing increases to approval rates.
Visa is collaborating in the Bank of Cyprus’s biometric payment card trial, and will also initiate America’s first such pilot, with help from Fingerprint Cards and Precise Biometrics.

Announced earlier this month, the Bank of Cyprus project is being spearheaded by Gemalto, with Zwipe also providing technology for the biometric payment cards. The newly announced US pilot, meanwhile, is a collaboration with Mountain America Credit Union, and will revolve around biometric cards using fingerprint sensor technology from Fingerprint Cards in collaboration with its smart card partner Kona I. The payment card solution also uses biometric algorithm software from Precise Biometrics

Visa’s payment card solution features an embedded fingerprint sensor as well as red and green lights to indicate when authentication has succeeded or failed. Biometric data is enrolled, stored, and matched entirely on the card, ensuring that user templates cannot be hacked from an external server. The cards support EMV chip and contactless payments, allowing for highly secure tap-based transactions.
Gemalto is going to provide biometric payment cards for the Bank of Cyprus, the company has announced.
Gemalto‘s Trusted Service Hub can now act as a gateway for card issuers to Mastercard’s and Visa’s tokenization services, offering a single hub through which they can manage their digital issuance needs. The firm’s partnerships with the world’s two largest credit card companies should serve to dramatically extend the use of its Trusted Services Hub.
Smartmetric Inc., a manufacturer of biometric, fingertip-based credit cards, said that its biometric credit and debit card — slated for release in early 2020 — now has a battery shelf life of over nine years.
CardLogix introduces Card Encoding Engine
CardLogix has launched the Card Encoding Engine (CEE) for the creation of secure ID cards and badges.

Her er en liten timeline over diverse milepæler innen piloter og diverse. Med et hint av styring siden tidslinjen er sponset av IDEX, men den gir et lite overblikk.

En liten spådom av det biometriske kortet som blir lansert GLOBALT i 2020:

LED lys for bekreftelse om fingeravtrykket er registrert. - Etter godkjent testing fra Visa
Trådløs lading med 9 års levetid - Lades opp av betalingsterminal og/eller telefon. - Levert av smart metric
Stor optisk sensor for avlesning av alle størrelser av tomler innenfor bank og levert av Egistec/Qualcomm
ID-innlogging, Krypto ++ Sensorer levert av leverandører som IDEX, FPC
Alle de store mobiloperatørene er underlagt samme plattform - Levert i samarbeid med Samsund/Apple/Microsoft
API innenfor banker og finansielle sektorer er i direkte dialog med denne plattformen.
Fingeravtrykket registreres på egen telefon og kortet blir validert gjennom denne plattformen.
Dobbel sikkerhet for godkjenning gjennom telefon som Ansikt, stemme, oppførsel blir lagt til fortløpende.
CVC koden blir auto-generert på eget digitalt display i kortet og endres hver gang du aktiverer ved trykk. -Motion code levert av IDEMIA
Softvare på tvers av ALLE plattformer og leverandører blir levert av Precise biometric. - Etter godkjenningen fra Mastercard, alle vellykkede piloter og alle store telefonleverandører, API og godkjenning FIDO level2 + Microsoft implementering.
Kortet blir meget mulig av et annet material enn plast, siden dette er ut i 2020.
Kortet kommer til å koste rundt 5 dollar i starten, men lander på rundt 2 dollar ved utgangen av 2020.

Dette er snart ikke lengre en spådom siden vi om 1 uke går inn i 2020 og alle nyheter, meldinger, intervjuer, samarbeid, og store bevegelser blant de størst aktørene tilsier at det er dette som kommer til å skje.
Spørsmålet er bare da hvor mye dette vil utgjøre av inntekter for de selskapene som er involvert og jeg fokuserer bare på PB, sidden det er her jeg har investert :)
La oss ta en liten titt på potensialet innenfor biometriske kort:
De 5 største kortleverandørene i Kina, Frankrike, Nederland og Tyskland leverte i 2018 mer enn kort. og med et estimat på lisens innenfor softvare som kanskje ligger innenfor 0,25 og 0,75 kr pr kort - pr år. så blir det betydelig inntekter bare innenfor dette segmentet.
Ved 0,25 kr vil dette utgjøre en inntekt på 750.000.000 kr i året.

I tillegg til dette så kommer kort innenfor krypto og ID som pass eller innlogging.

Hovedinntektene til PB ligger fortsatt i mobilmarkedet og med et økende fokus på optiske sensorer som nå eksploderer. Se avtaler og samarbeid. Egistec, Qualcomm, Samsung, Vivo, Huawai, Oppo +++

Bi-segmentet som er innenfor dørlåser til hus og biler eksploderer også. se tidligere meldinger om Xiaomi og Hyundai.

ID-innlogging som nå selges i hele verden fra microsoft - eWBM med Precise biometrics softvare. Ekploderer uten sidestykke!

Youniq blir snart lansert i dette er et produkt for sikker innlogging, men kan også knyttes opp mot betaling. Dette er den nye boomen i 2020.

Jeg må si at etter jeg startet å følge selskapet for 6 mnd siden, så har det skjedd helt utrolig mye og det er ingen økning i kursen. Det er uforståelig i mine øyne når dette selskapet er involvert i ALT som foregår nå innenfor biometrisk sikkerhet. Det kan ikke være mange som tviler på at alt blir lansert i 2020 og at alt PB er med i nå kommer til å eksplodere.
Selv med innsidehandler, nye samarbeid, nye kontorer, store besparelser, nye ansatte, nye produkter, nye kunder, største turnover på 3 år, 64% økning i omsetning i Q3, varsel om inntekt og økning for Q4 og med et marked som boomer over alle forventninger innenfor alle segmentene som PB er med i, så er likevel kursen like lav. - Har gitt mine spekulasjoner rundt dette :)
Dette blir i mine øyne den største raketten i 2020 og kommer til å sette alle andre aksjer i skyggen. Hvis det potensiale som ligger her blir utnyttet til det fulle, så vil jeg påstå at vi ser en kurs mot 20 kr i slutten av 2020.

Fortsatt fredfull god jul og godt nyttår til alle :)

Bare dager til det smeller ut en melding :)
“The selection of Precise Match-on-Card™ for Nigeria’s national ID card is continuing proof of the strength of Precise Biometrics’ technology,” said Precise Biometrics CEO Thomas Marschall. “We expect substantial income from this project in the coming years, including fingerprint readers once more cards have been deployed. We have agreed with our partner not to disclose specific values, but the income from the project will naturally be reflected in our regular financial reporting.” He added, “We have a track record of Match-on-Card solutions that are secure, accurate, and reliable—all extremely important for a successful national ID program.”

As a separate and additional opportunity in Nigeria, Interswitch will continue to pursue more Local State ID card projects in Nigeria similar to their first win, Cross River State, which also includes Precise Match-on-Card™.

Precise Biometrics is the leading global supplier of Match-on-Card. The company has delivered Match-on-Card to five additional national ID cards, including Portugal, Thailand and Venezuela.

Precise Biometrics provides fingerprint software based on Precise BioMatch Embedded, an industry leading algorithm solution that offers convenient and secure fingerprint recognition for products with small fingerprint sensors on limited platforms, such as smart cards, wearables, cars, locks and personal identification tokens.

STMicroelectronics provides its ST54 system-in-package solution, composed of an ST21NFC near-field communication (NFC) controller and an ST33 embedded Secure Element based on 32-bit ARM(R) SecurCore(R) SC300, hosting the Gemalto Biometrics Match-On-Card. ST also provides an STM32 ARM(R) Cortex(R)-M based low-power microcontroller managing the application.

For end users, the new architecture spells an end to the complexity of having to remember numerous username and password combinations to access essential applications such as payment, secure email and government ID programs. This solution will offer new opportunities to the consumer electronics market to implement secure authentication solutions based on FIDO Alliance’s specification, and give consumer electronics manufacturers the option to differentiate from competition. By easing the user journey without compromising security, biometric fingerprint authentication represents a real game-changer for the world of secure mobile connectivity, payment, eCitizen services and more.
Gemalto and Precise Biometrics succeeded in making the solution work seamlessly with Microsoft product ecosystem. In addition, the Gemalto .NET card minidriver is integrated with Microsoft’s Windows Smart Card Framework.
Precise Biometrics’ groundbreaking fingerprint authentication system is highly secure and convenient to use; authenticating the user by matching the fingerprint to one digitally stored on the smart card. This capability offers increased security and ease-of-use since the sensitive data is computed directly on the card without the need to rely on the availability or speed of a network for validation.

New OPPO Smartphone’s In-Display Sensor Supported by Precise Biometrics Software
Posted on September 7, 2018 by Alex Perala
Precise Biometrics‘ algorithm software is being used to support in-display fingerprint scanning in the new OPPO R17 smartphone, the company has announced.New OPPO Smartphone's In-Display Sensor Supported by Precise Biometrics Software

It’s the result of Precise Biometrics’ partnership with fingerprint sensor provider Silead, and a validation of statements made in a corporate update about a year ago. At that time, Precise Biometrics’ then-CEO, Håkan Persson, predicted the rise of in-display fingerprint sensor technology for smartphones, driven by optical and ultrasonic fingerprint sensors; and he said it was an industry shift for which Precise Biometrics would be “well positioned”. Now, with a growing number of smartphones featuring in-display fingerprint sensor technology arriving in the mainstream consumer market, Precise Biometrics is starting to reap the rewards.

In a statement announcing the OPPO R17 integration, Precise Biometrics’ current CEO, Stefan K. Persson, framed the phone as representative of new devices sporting “slick smartphone designs with edge-to-edge displays,” adding, “we are pleased to provide Precise BioMatch Mobile to Oppo R17 and supporting Silead with their first under display implementation.”

The company also indicated that the integration will begin generating royalty revenues in the third quarter of this year.

Other features of the OPPO R17 include a 6.4″ AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor, a 16MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP selfie camera. The device has launched in the China market.
Qualcomm has reportedly won orders from Samsung for its upcoming next-gen ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensors. What this means is that Qualcomm might become the exclusive partner for placing in-display fingerprint sensors that Samsung plans to introduce on its mid-range and premium Galaxy smartphone models next year. Apart from Qualcomm, MediaTek's China-based subsidiary Goodix Technology is also said to be one of only two prominent suppliers for in-display fingerprint scanners for Android smartphones in 2019, though it uses the optical type. The report suggests this move will force other Taiwanese chip manufacturers to focus on other niche applications.

The increasing demand for all-screen smartphones across the globe has prompted the demand for in-display fingerprint sensors. This demand has led to Chinese and Taiwanese IC (Integrated Circuit) design houses including Egis Technology, Elan Microelectronics, FocalTech, Goodix, and Silead accelerating work on these sensors, as per a report by Taiwanese publication Digitimes.

MediaTek's Goodix subsidiary has also reportedly secured a “pre-emptive presence” in this sector with optical in-display fingerprint sensor orders from Chinese giants such as Lenovo, Xiaomi, Huawei, and Vivo. Shipments for these handsets will begin soon, in the first half of 2019.

Additionally, Samsung's order with Qualcomm remains the highlight of this development given the volume of production by the South Korean giant widely regarded as the vendor with the most smartphone shipments. Samsung might soon feature in-display fingerprint sensors in its Galaxy S and Galaxy A series with shipments expected to start from late 2018 or early 2019.

To complete this large order, Qualcomm is reportedly planning to incorporate all resources of its ultrasonic fingerprint sensor technology lab in California and work with Taiwan's TFT panel makers to help its clients lower production costs with a one-stop solution.

Taiwanese chip makers are expected to suffer from these partnerships, and they might look to develop “niche-type” fingerprint identification chips for products like financial cards, and other industrial, home, and automotive applications.

In related news, a report earlier this month claimed that Qualcomm's third-gen in-display fingerprint sensing technology will be exclusive to Samsung's upcoming flagship, Galaxy S10, at least for the first half of 2019, after which other OEMs will be able to incorporate them on their devices as well.,c2608326
The integration has been carried out in cooperation with Silead, one of the fingerprint sensor suppliers to Oppo R17. Precise Biometrics projects the integration will generate some royalty revenue from the third quarter of 2018, which will be based on actual sales of fingerprint sensors that utilize Precise BioMatch Mobile.
”The agreement with Silead further strengthens our position as a leading supplier of fingerprint algorithms that provide convenient and secure identity authentication for mobile and embedded devices. This is yet another important step to commercialize our fingerprint technology”
Announcing the integration in a statement, Precise Biometrics declined to name the new device in which its Precise BioMatch Mobile biometric algorithm software is featured, but indicated that the vendor is based in China. Precise Biometrics also noted that the integration comes via Silead, a China-based IC specialist with which the company entered into a partnership about two years ago, in the spring of 2015.

The CITeR has already gathered companies and organizations such as Qualcomm, Infineon, Integrated Biometrics, Precise Biometrics, the FBI or Defense Research and Development Canada.
This National Science Foundation (NSF) initiative invites industry players to join forces in a cooperative effort to support and drive high quality research in biometrics and in return, to have privileged access to the developed technologies. Idiap hosts the first non-US site.

In today’s fast changing industrial environment, design and development of new technologies is crucial. Companies must keep pace with the continuous evolution and development of technology and customer preference variability. To this end, companies have to invest in research and development activities. Unfortunately, these activities mostly do not yield immediate profit or improvement and they involve higher uncertainty with respect to other company activities in operation. This is even worse for industrial fields driven by cutting-edge technology, such as biometrics business. The Center for Identification Technology Research (CITeR) initiative from the American National Science Foundation aims to overcome these issues. They succeed to gather companies and organizations such as Qualcomm, Infineon, Integrated Biometrics, Precise Biometrics, the FBI or Defense Research and Development Canada.

A Swiss site for a US initiative

Already involved with various US labs, the Swiss Center for Biometrics Research and Testing decided to strengthen its relationship with the CITeR by hosting the first non-US site of the initiative. Within the Idiap Research Institute, the Center offers biometrics and security companies the means to build strong ties with talented researchers and engineers in the field and to make recommendations and influence the course of the research projects by becoming an affiliate. The process is quite simple, as companies willing to become an affiliate only have to pay an annual administrative fee and sign a standard agreement.

Affiliates have right to delegate representatives to the Affiliate Advisory Board. This board meets on annual basis and makes recommendations on the research projects to be carried out within the Center and the allocation of resources to research proposals. Additionally, the affiliates can to obtain a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual license to the results obtained within the projects funded by the Center. Last but not least, the affiliates have the right to review publication requests of papers and presentations containing results in case the publication contains patentable results or require protection.

Already two affiliates

The Swiss site is already creating interest around major players located in Europe. The two first affiliates are SICPA and Idemia. The first one is a Swiss company among the leaders providing secured identification, traceability and authentication solutions. The second one is a French multinational company, specializing in security and identity solutions. Several companies are currently in contact with the Swiss Center for Biometrics.

The chip manufacturer NXP and the vehicle maker VW unveiled a concept car in Hamburg at the end of August, which is opened using Ultra-Wideband-Technology (UWB). This makes it impossible to intercept the radio signal. UWB enables a precise check on the position of the rightful key owner in real time, which cannot be manipulated. Furthermore, the car can also unlock individual doors depending on the side the driver is approaching from. The application of AI is also revolutionary. The technology learns and recognizes the driver’s walking patterns and gestures. So the car can be taught to open the trunk when the owner waves a hand holding the key, or puts a foot close to the trunk.

In 2019 Huyndai produced the first series model featuring door handles and a starter button equipped with a biometric scanner. The driver can start the engine only after authentication by a fingerprint sensor. In a fraction of a second its electrodes scan the lines, loops and whorls of the user’s fingertips and compare them with stored data sets. Individual settings such as the positions of the seat and the mirrors and the choice of infotainment are simultaneously activated.
“In the future, Hyundai Motor plans to further expand the application of the technology to allow the adjustment of temperature, steering wheel position, and many other features which will be tailored to driver’s preferences” said Albert Biermann, President and Head of Research & Development Division of the Hyundai Motor Company. “This will ultimately offer quality driving experience to each and every Hyundai customer.”
For fingerprint matching, authentication software is required, such as that from Precise Biometrics. Flexibility is required in the authentication software as well to maximize ease of use and enable OEMs to match capabilities to their applications:
Precise Biometrics is playing an important role in one of the more high-profile examples of biometric innovation in the automotive industry. The company has revealed that its fingerprint algorithm software is going to be used in a forthcoming Hyundai car.

DREAMTECH is expecting to have better performance this year as well due to new supply of display fingerprint recognition modules in addition to its current supply of button-type fingerprint recognition modules. It is heard that it is going to produce and supply display fingerprint recognition modules starting from May.
Display fingerprint recognition technology made its appearance within Smartphone market last year and it is expected to be generalized starting from this year. According to a market research company called IHS Market, there were 30 million Smartphones that were equipped with display fingerprint recognition modules last year and there are expected to be 180 million Smartphones that are equipped with display fingerprint recognition modules this year. Display fingerprint recognition technology has been receiving spotlight as it goes along with ‘full-screen’ trend. It is predicted that display recognition technology based on optical method rather than ultrasonic method will be the mainstream within Smartphone market.
Precise Biometrics also indicated that it’s working with Dreamtech, a Korean engineering firm that develops module components for a range of products including cars, mobile phones, and home appliances. The latter has integrated the Precise BioMatch Embedded algorithm software solution into a fingerprint sensor module developed for Hyundai. It isn’t yet clear if a sensor hardware maker is also involved.
"For fingerprint matching, authentication software is required, such as that from Precise Biometrics. Flexibility is required in the authentication software as well to maximize ease of use and enable OEMs to match capabilities to their applications:

Enrollment flexibility: The OEM can vary the number of enrollment images to favor user convenience or initial security.

Dynamic template update: This allows the OEM to optionally add fingerprint images at a later date, thus allowing for quicker enrollment.

Rotationally invariance: This ensures no degradation of FRR performance over a full 360-degree rotation of the finger or the fingerprint sensor

Fast processing: Typical 250-ms match time, plus 50 ms per additional enrolled finger

Automotive-qualified components, including the sensor and matching MCU

iPhone 12 rumored to have 5G connectivity, advanced under-screen sensors
Data leaks and rumors announce possible big design and feature changes for iPhones planned for 2020 including 5G network support, an advanced 3D camera for augmented reality and under-screen biometric specs, reports LetsGoDigital.

Although it just released the iPhone 11 series in September, Apple is already preparing for the iPhone 12 launch in 2020. The new devices will not only come equipped with 5G connectivity and an advanced under-screen camera, but they are also rumored to get rid of the notch and have an in-display fingerprint scanner which may cancel Face ID.

China Times wrote following MWC Shanghai that Swiss financial services company Credit Suisse reported Apple suppliers were working on delivering full screen displays for iPhone 12. The under-screen camera will be integrated only in the top model, which will be the most expensive, while the cheaper models will be based on iPhone 11.

Apple competitors Oppo and Xiaomi have already presented an under-screen camera that can be processed in narrow screen edges. The new Apple features could help the manufacturer regain market share lost to Chinese manufacturers. However, competitor smartphones with an under-screen camera could be released at the end of February during MWC 2020 in Barcelona.

In December, Apple was granted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office 59 new patents including one for under-display Touch ID to read fingerprints optically and one for a biometric 3D Face ID system that uses eye and head tracking for advanced facial analysis.

According to LetsGoDigital and documents published in December 2019, Apple has applied for three design patents in Japan, one including a model without notch and without Face ID but equipped with an in-display fingerprint reader and an under-screen camera. Based on images included in the patent application, screen edges are identical on all sides and the screen is rectangular, there is a receiver in the middle of the upper bezel, and all features are under the screen.

Qualcomm and Samsung may be the chip suppliers for the new iPhone 12 series, but Apple is allegedly already working on developing its own 5G modem after purchasing this branch from Intel for $1 billion.

In December, Qualcomm released a two-finger ultrasonic fingerprint sensor which may be integrated in new Apple phones.

December revenue was 628.11 million yuan, with a monthly growth rate of 19.21% and an annual growth rate of 121.37%

Taiwan-based Egis Technology is reporting solid results in its year-end update for 2019, despite a fourth quarter revenue dip.

The company says it brought in NT$ 7.358 billion, or roughly $244.5 million USD, for the 2019 fiscal year, which it called “a new high” in a statement announcing the result. The figure represents a 24.5 percent year-over-year increase.

Revenues for the fourth quarter, meanwhile, were down 4.1 percent quarter-over-quarter, “which is in line with the seasonal pattern seen among IC fabless peers and consistent with what we communicated at our previous earnings conference,” the company said.

In its Q3 update, Egis reported that some major customers had “requested not to carry inventory at year-end,” which suggested that it would see lower shipment volumes in the coming quarter. But the company insisted that its management team expected this development to be temporary in nature, and suggested that its fingerprint sensor technology was expected to find its way into a growing number of smartphone models.

Fingerprint biometrics is Egis Technology’s specialty, and the company is a board member of the influential FIDO Alliance.
