SecuGen to Showcase New Unity Biometric Development Platform at CES 2016

| From

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 14, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- SecuGen, a world leading optical fingerprint device and technology vendor, will be showcasing at CES 2016 its new product, Unity(TM) BDP, a platform for the development of a wide array of fingerprint enabled biometric products.

Developers are invited to come by SecuGen's booth, number 21733 in South Hall 1 of the Las Vegas Convention Center to see a demonstration of this revolutionary new OEM fingerprint sensor.

More than ever before, hardware device manufacturers must consider whether biometric security is appropriate for their products. SecuGen has now made it very easy to embed sophisticated fingerprint technology into a wide variety of hardware products with its new Unity Biometric Development Platform.

The Unity BDP offers device manufacturers a flexible, expandable, and easy to use environment that provides a simplified way to embed fingerprint capability into a very wide range of products such as access control devices, time & attendance machines, civil ID handheld devices, ATMs, industrial equipment, point of sale equipment, and much, much more.

With an integrated Linux development environment and embedded biometric fingerprint registration and matching functions, Unity BDP delivers efficiency of development in one small but powerful package.

The Unity BDP includes a FAP 20 certified optical fingerprint sensor, an open Linux system running on a 1 GHz CPU, and a modular design that easily accommodates a wide array of expansion boards. Future expansion boards may include Ethernet, Bluetooth capability, and battery logic for mobile devices. The boards may also provide a wide array of interfaces such as LED displays, keypads, RS-232, and USB. In addition, Unity BDP includes an API that gives developers access to SecuGen's NIST certified template extraction and matching algorithms.

Using Unity BDP, many developers will find that there is no longer a need for a separate controller board since Unity BDP comes with a fast processor, open Linux, and the ability to add various interfaces and logic via expansion boards. This makes Unity BDP an ultra-compact, enormously capable, and affordable biometric platform that features SecuGen's renowned high quality optical fingerprint sensor.

"Unity BDP is the world's first biometric development platform as far as we can tell," stated Jeff Brown, VP of Sales and Marketing for SecuGen. "Our team has been able to go far beyond delivering a simple fingerprint sensor. Unity BDP includes a comprehensive set of tools that allow developers to create fingerprint enabled products quickly and efficiently. This product is revolutionary."

VP of Engineering Dan Riley added, "The SecuGen engineering team has come up with a new approach to delivering world class OEM sensors. Unity BDP is not just a sensor, it is an entire development platform that is both software and hardware expandable. The uses for this product are nearly limitless, and it represents a quantum leap in OEM fingerprint technology."

Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen, said, "For many years we have focused exclusively on delivering to our OEM partners the tools they need to compete successfully in this highly competitive industry. Unity BDP is the culmination of a decade of effort. We are very proud to be able to deliver the first product of its kind, a complete biometric development platform that is compact and amazingly affordable."
