Suprema Launches New Series of Biometric Fingerprint Modules

Today, biometric and identification technology provider Suprema, Inc. announced the launch of the SFM5500 Series fingerprint embedded modules. In addition to impressive hardware specs, the SFM5500 Series is equipped with Wavelet Scalar Quantization (WSQ) image compression technology, for which it recently scored the latest FBI certification.

The new SFM5500 Series modules from Suprema feature 533 MHz DSP with a high precision capacitive sensor as well as an optical sensor.

The new series of embedded modules includes SFM5520-OP, SFM5530-OC, SFM5550 TC 1 and 2. Each features a FIPS201 approved algorithm and, as you’d expect from a Suprema biometric technology, is ideal for access control deployments.

According to Suprema vice president Young S. Moon, the SFM5500 series was made with the intention of providing consumers with greater confidence in designing devices for high-volume processing scenarios. He attributes this to the series flexible customization features offered by the fingerprint embedded modules as well as their upgraded CPU.

“With biometric technology becoming more popular for mobility, such as with smartphones, the SFM5500 Series will bring our customers more opportunity to expand business across various applications,” says Moon.

The SFM5500 series is now available for purchase globally.

Suprema is a fixture in biometric physical access control news. In September the company announced an integration with Milestone video management technology, a move meant to help make biometrics more accessible in the enterprise security market. Along with Entertech Systems, its operating partner in Canada, Ireland, the United Kingdom and the United States, Suprema is focused on breaking down biometric adoption barriers in physical access control.
