Oki and bioMETRX co-operate on entry level biometrics.

BioMETRX : 18 March, 2008  (Company News)
Finger activated authentication products using fingerprint biometric technology set to enter consumer market in joint development project between bioMETRX and Oki.
bioMETRX and Oki Semiconductor Company are working together on a new solution that will result in significantly lowering bioMETRX's overall build costs for its expanding smartTOUCH finger-activated consumer product lines.

OKI recently announced that it has begun sampling its ML67Q5250 a "single-chip" solution enabling fingerprint authentication. "bioMETRX has been testing various technologies supplied to it by OKI Semiconductor, with additional engineering assistance from the headquarter in Japan. The engineering effort was initiated to examine whether we could reduce component and manufacturing costs of the smartTOUCH brand of finger activated consumer products," stated Mark R. Basile, CEO of bioMETRX. "After several weeks of testing the OKI solution, we have concluded that incorporating OKI's ML67Q5250 solution into our core design, will allow us to offer a cost effective, easy- to use, high performance solution to use in all of our products across a wide range of vertical consumer markets."

As the global leader in finger-activated consumer biometric product engineering, development and sales, bioMETRX's smartTOUCH technology has proven to be the most dependable and robust consumer biometric platform available today. Its smartTOUCH product line is just starting to make its way into the marketplace, having shipped over 18,000 units of its garage door opener to Home Depot last quarter. The smartTOUCH line is now being expanded to door locks, cabinet locks, mailboxes and luggage. "bioMETRX's finger-activated solutions are smart, reliable and easy to use. We believe our ML67Q5250 can help those products become even more affordable to the consumer," noted Takabumi Asahi, CEO of OKI Semiconductor. "We are proud and happy to be working with an up and coming leader of consumer biometric products in North America, and feel that OKI technology will continue to add value to bioMETRX's efforts in launching new products."
