Fingerprint biometrics for Centrino equipped portable computers

AuthenTec : 23 October, 2008  (Application Story)
Fingerprint sensors from AuthenTec to be installed in Centrino equipped laptops from a number of manufacturers for biometric based access control
AuthenTec has announced that its award-winning fingerprint sensors are bringing Power of Touch features to millions of new Intel Centrino 2 processor technology-equipped notebook and ultraportable PCs from the world's leading PC manufacturers. AuthenTec's award-winning fingerprint sensors have been designed into more than 100 of these new PC models - representing millions of total PCs - for user security, convenience and personalization.

New PC models that are incorporating AuthenTec fingerprint sensors include business and consumer notebooks as well as ultraportable PCs from the world's leading brands including ASUS, Acer, Dell, Fujitsu, Fujitsu Siemens, HP, Lenovo, LG, Samsung and Toshiba. These innovative, high performance PCs integrate AuthenTec's small form factor AES1610, single chip match-on AES2810, and new AES2550 fingerprint sensors for enhanced security and convenience features such as password replacement, fast user switching, application quick launch and file/folder encryption with the simple swipe of the finger.

"We're extremely pleased to bring the Power of Touch to so many PC users through the launch of millions of new AuthenTec-enabled Centrino 2 notebooks that are now shipping and will continue to roll out throughout the next year," said AuthenTec President Larry Ciaccia. "These new notebooks leverage the breadth of our product portfolio and are shipping on laptops from 8 of the world's top 10 notebook PC OEMs. The AuthenTec team is proud to play a key role in adding security, convenience and personalization to these innovative, high-performance business and consumer PCs from the most trusted brands on the planet."

Formerly codenamed Montevina, Intel Centrino 2 processor technology and Intel Centrino 2 with vPro Technology improve upon every facet of a laptop's main features, including performance and battery life via new processors and chipsets.
AuthenTec has the broadest portfolio of silicon-based fingerprint sensors on the market today. All AuthenTec sensors utilize the Company's patented TruePrint® technology to deliver extremely accurate and reliable fingerprint imaging. TruePrint reads below the surface of the skin to the live layer, where a person's true fingerprint resides. This subsurface approach enables AuthenTec sensors to overcome common skin surface conditions to read virtually every fingerprint, every time.
