SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 13, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- SecuGen Corporation is very pleased to announce the immediate availability of the U20, a FAP 20 Mobile ID and PIV certified optical fingerprint sensor. The U20 is an ultra-compact, rugged fingerprint sensor that captures very high quality images and yet is truly affordable.

SecuGen products are well known for capturing high quality images in a wide range of rugged environments, as well as being affordable for use in large deployments. The FBI has certified this new fingerprint sensor, the U20, as meeting both PIV image quality specifications and FAP 20 Mobile ID requirements. The ultra-compact design of the U20 will allow it to fit easily into devices where space is limited. With the U20 it is now possible to embed a high quality fingerprint reader into an access control device, safe, kiosk, ATM or virtually any other hardware device at an affordable price.

The U20 works with SecuGen's Software Developer Kits (SDK) to enable developers to quickly and easily embed the use of the U20 into their hardware devices. All of SecuGen's 1:1 SDKs are completely free. The U20 also supports the newly released Windows 8.1 and the Windows Biometric Framework (WBF). The WBF allows Windows 8.1 users to easily logon to Windows, purchase Windows apps from the Windows Store, and access Windows apps with their fingerprints using devices that integrate the U20.

Dan Riley, Vice President of Engineering for SecuGen said, "Our engineering team did an amazing job in creating a sensor that is very small yet meets the rigorous FAP 20 Mobile ID and PIV specifications while retaining SecuGen high quality standards. The U20 represents our concerted efforts to deliver exactly what our partners have asked us for."

Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen added, "We are very excited about the release of the U20. The small size has to be seen to be appreciated. We will be focusing our efforts on rolling out this product over the next several months. We are always looking for ways to provide our OEM partners with state of the art products and tools. We are very pleased to be able to make this new smaller fingerprint sensor available to our partners around the world."
