SDK upgrade for fingerprint biometric authentication

Oki Electric Industry : 20 May, 2008  (New Product)
Software development kit enables touch sensors to be easily built into biometric fingerprint recognition systems.
SDK upgrade for fingerprint biometric authentication
Oki Electric Industry has made improvements to the SDK to enable compatibility with its second version Software Development Kit (SDK) for ML67Q5250, the fingerprint authentication LSI different types of touch sensors. In addition to slide sensors, with the fingerprint authentication algorithm that is built-in in ML67Q5250, manufacturers can now provide embedded systems for touch sensors that feature low power consumption and high-speed processing.

"While the first SDK was only compatible with slide sensors, demand for touch sensors has been increasing for applications in door locks, access control and ID terminals aimed at users of all ages. Responding to this demand, OKI developed the SDK for ML67Q5250 to be used for touch sensors," said Hiroshi Enomoto, President of Silicon Solutions Company at OKI. "Customers wanting to use touch sensors can now develop a fingerprint authentication system using ML67Q5250, simply by preparing a touch sensor and the driver software to import the fingerprint image."

OKI added a software interface to the new SDK to enable customers to easily connect their desired sensor. Instead of limiting the types of sensors that can connect to the SDK, OKI made it easy for customers to connect various types of touch sensors for use in different environments.

The fingerprint authentication system market is expected to continue growing, and OKI plans to expand its business in that field by providing an easy-to-use development environment that reduces the development load.

The SDK is a packaged product including an evaluation board to develop fingerprint authentication systems and software. Customers can also develop their own applications by using IO drivers and the fingerprint authentication libraries included in the SDK. In addition, debugging the software can be done easily by connecting an ARM compliant JTAG ICE interface.
