Fujitsu develops world’s smallest and slimmest palm vein authentication sensor for tablet devices
Fujitsu today announced development of the world’s smallest and slimmest palm vein authentication sensor that is capable of being employed in tablet devices. By upgrading the technology’s design with new image sensors and other optical components, Fujitsu has successfully slimmed down the new sensor to a thickness of 5 mm.Through repeated simulations, Fujitsu has developed a new low-distortion wide-angle lens that offers a field of view equivalent to that of existing sensors, regardless of reductions in size and thickness, as well as a diffused lighting system for uniform luminance distribution. These developments ensure that the new sensor is compatible with authentication data from existing palm vein sensors.
The new sensor preserves the same authentication performance as existing technology while halving thickness of current models. This also enables easy deployment to mobile devices, such as tablets and slate PCs, which are becoming increasingly slimmer, and helps to expand the range of applications for palm vein authentication. More customers will now be able to perform secure authentication using simple operations.
