Fingerprint Sensors for Waterproof Fujitsu Smartphones

AuthenTec : 25 February, 2010  (Application Story)
AuthenTec's Smart Sensor Biometric Fingerprint Authentication Device has been used on the NTT Docomo waterproof Smart and Prime phones
AuthenTec has announced that its fingerprint sensors have been integrated into new Fujitsu phone models now offered by NTT Docomo. AuthenTec's AES1711 sensor has been integrated into two new waterproof mobile phone models within the docomo Prime series and docomo Smart series where it offers user features including security & privacy, navigation, personalization and convenience.

New Fujitsu phone models which incorporate AuthenTec's award-winning sensor technology include the new waterproof Prime series F-01B and Smart series F-03B mobile phones. The F-01B includes AuthenTec's AES1711 fingerprint sensor to enhance touch-powered features of the phone by giving users full navigation capabilities as the ability to quickly and securely lock and unlock the phone with the simple swipe of a finger. The F-01B also includes a large 3.4-inch touchscreen display and a 12.2 MegaPixel camera that includes facial recognition and utilizes the high-speed, high-accuracy Milbeaut Mobile image-processing engine for capturing subtle details and tone variations in subjects. The Milbeaut series has been employed in a wide range of digital camera products, from digital SLR cameras to compact cameras.

Fujitsu's F-03B from NTT Docomo also incorporates AuthenTec's AES1711 for the same touch-powered features as the F-01B but in a slim design will appeal to quality-conscious customers. The docomo Smart series F-03B offers all of the high-end specifications and technical features of the F-01B, including its advanced dust-resistant and water-resistant functionality. Both phones meet IPX5, IPX7, IPX8, and IP5X specifications for dust and water resistance.

"We're pleased to expand our offering of smart sensor-enabled waterproof mobile phones to include the docomo Prime series F-01B for people who love to explore the latest multimedia, and the docomo Smart series F-03B for busy people who want to live productively and enhance the management of their professional and private lives," said Katsumi Takada, general manager for the Mobile Phone Group of Fujitsu. "We value our long-term relationship with AuthenTec and appreciate the differentiation their smart sensor technology brings to these new smartphones."

"We are extremely pleased to further expand our longstanding relationship with Fujitsu and NTT Docomo through the launch of their newest smartphones integrating AuthenTec technology," said Masatoshi Morishita, AuthenTec Vice President and President of AuthenTec KK. "Fujitsu and NTT Docomo are recognized as leaders in smartphone technology and innovation, and we look forward to supporting the launch of these feature-packed waterproof phones using our AES1711 sensor in durable new TouchStone packaging."

The leading cause of cell phone returns not covered under warranty is damage from exposure to excess moisture or immersion in water such as in pools and hot tubs. AuthenTec's TouchStone package allows for easy integration into various waterproof industrial design configurations by providing the durability and water resistance required for this new class of handsets. TouchStone technology combines all the features of AuthenTec's patented TruePrint technology with thin, durable, easy to integrate, waterproof and surface-mountable packaging for today's stylistic cell phone designs.

IP5X rated phones are capable of withstanding an environment with dust particles of 25 microns in diameter or smaller for eight hours and still functioning. The IPX8 designations indicate that the phone and its built-in camera can function normally even after being submersed in water to a depth of 1.5 meters for 30 minutes.

AuthenTec's AES1711 sensor is based on TruePrint technology, AuthenTec's patented and unique solution that reads below the surface of the skin to the live layer where a person's true fingerprint resides. This patented subsurface approach enables AuthenTec sensors to read virtually every fingerprint, every time - a critical requirement in any fingerprint-enabled device. The sensor also combines AuthenTec's TrueNav menu navigation features and TrueMatch pattern matching to ensure the industry's highest level of security, usability and convenience.

AuthenTec is an ISO9001-certified provider of fingerprint sensors and solutions with the broadest product and IP portfolio in the silicon fingerprint sensor industry. The Company recently expanded its offering to include new smart sensor hardware, software and client applications for consumer PCs, netbooks and smartphones.
