SecuGen Brings Unity to Connect:ID 2020

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- SecuGen, a world leading optical fingerprint device and technology vendor, will be highlighting the Unity™ Biometric Development Platform (BDP) at the Connect:ID 2020 exhibition for next generation identity solutions. The Unity BDP is a versatile development platform that facilitates the creation of a wide array of fingerprint enabled biometric products, and Connect:ID is the ideal venue to showcase this exciting new platform.

Increasingly, customers are driving hardware device manufacturers to consider whether biometric security is appropriate for their products. SecuGen has now made it very easy to embed sophisticated fingerprint technology into many kinds of hardware products with its new Unity Biometric Development Platform.

The Unity BDP offers device manufacturers a flexible, expandable, and easy to use environment that provides a simplified way to embed fingerprint capability into various products such as access control devices, time & attendance machines, civil ID handheld devices, ATMs, industrial equipment, point of sale equipment, and much, much more.

With an integrated Linux development environment and embedded biometric fingerprint registration and matching functions, Unity BDP delivers efficiency of development in a very compact but powerful package.

SecuGen has used this same architecture as a springboard to accelerate the development of its own new products, which include both finished fingerprint readers and OEM modules. The Unity BDP underpins an expanding list of SecuGen's newest fingerprint readers like the Unity 20 Serial and Unity 20 USB, as well as the Unity 20 Ethernet and Unity 20 FIDO devices that will be released later this year. In addition, the Unity BDP serves as the basis for several of SecuGen's currently released and not yet released OEM fingerprint sensor modules such as the U20-ASF, U20-ASFX, U20-ASF-BT, U20-ASF-U, U20-ASF-SR, and U10-SF.

The Unity development platform provides engineering organizations with an FBI-certified FAP 10 or FAP 20 fingerprint sensor, NIST compliant template extraction and matching algorithms, and a set of tools that support both software and hardware expansion and speed up the development of new products. In addition to the ultra-compact sensor, the platform provides an open Linux system running on a 1 GHz CPU, and a modular design that easily accommodates standard interfaces such as serial, USB, Bluetooth, ethernet and more. Unity BDP includes an API that gives developers access to the template extraction and matching algorithms as well as the OpenSSL cryptographic library that allow for full, secure fingerprint biometric functionality within the very same device.

Using Unity BDP, many developers will find that there is no longer a need for a separate controller board since Unity BDP comes with its own fast processor, programmable Linux, and accessibility through common interfaces. This makes Unity BDP an ultra-compact, enormously capable, and affordable all-in-one biometric platform built upon SecuGen's renowned high-quality optical fingerprint sensor.

Developers are invited to learn more about the Unity BDP by visiting SecuGen's booth #542 at Connect:ID 2020 in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington, D.C. on March 11th and 12th.

"We began work on the Unity BDP to advance the development of one of our new products," stated Jeff Brown, VP of Sales and Marketing for SecuGen. "As we proceeded, it became clear that this architecture would enable our partner's product development as well. Relentless effort by our engineering team has enabled us to go far beyond delivering a simple fingerprint sensor like in the past. Now, Unity BDP delivers a comprehensive set of tools that allow developers to create fingerprint enabled products quickly and efficiently. This platform is revolutionary."

VP of Engineering Dan Riley added, "Our engineering team has come up with a new approach to delivering world class OEM sensors. Unity BDP is not just a sensor, it is an entire development platform that is both software and hardware expandable. The uses for this platform are nearly limitless, and it represents an enormous leap in OEM fingerprint technology."

Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen, said, "For nearly the entire lifetime of SecuGen, we have focused exclusively on delivering to our partners the tools they need to compete successfully in this highly competitive industry. Unity BDP is the culmination of a decade of effort. We are very proud to be able to deliver the first product of its kind, a complete biometric development platform that is top-of-the-line, compact, and still, amazingly affordable."

The core of the U10-SF sensor module is the rugged, high image quality U10 optical fingerprint sensor. The U10-SF features a Single Board Computer having a 1 GHz CPU, a fully programmable Linux system, SecuGen's fingerprint matching SDK, and OpenSSL cryptographic libraries. All of this is integrated into a compact package almost identical in size to the ultra-slim U10 itself. The U10-SF provides the tools and technologies that allow for the rapid and efficient development of a wide variety of embedded fingerprint solutions where high quality, rugged design, and affordability are key factors.

Jeff Brown, VP of Sales and Marketing for SecuGen stated, "The U10-SF optical fingerprint sensor module is the culmination of a multi-year development process. One strand of that process was to reduce the size of the sensor to our smallest ever. The second strand of the process was to merge a Single Board Computer with the fingerprint sensor module and embed an open Linux development environment, making this product unique in the industry. Combining all of this with its low price and astonishingly small size is a major breakthrough."

"The SecuGen engineering team has continued to innovate and has developed a new approach to delivering world class OEM sensors," commented VP of Engineering Dan Riley. "The U10-SF combines very challenging design goals: small size, a fully programmable device, and an affordable price. Our team has successfully delivered on this vision with the U10-SF. We are very excited about this product."

Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen, added, "As always, we have focused on delivering to our OEM partners the tools they need to compete successfully in this highly competitive industry. The U10-SF is a perfect example of this focus. Our team has worked long and hard on this product, and we are very proud of the outcome."

SecuGen will be showing the U10-SF at Connect:ID 2019 held at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., from April 30 through May 1, 2019, in booth # 611.

SecuGen to Demonstrate Apple iOS Compatibility with New Unity 20 Bluetooth Fingerprint Reader at ISC West 2019

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- SecuGen, a world leading optical fingerprint device and technology vendor, will be demonstrating the new Unity(tm) 20 Bluetooth fingerprint reader with Apple's iOS at the ISC West 2019 in Las Vegas, the largest converged security industry trade show in the U.S.

The Unity 20 Bluetooth is the world's first elegantly designed, low cost, fully programmable Bluetooth fingerprint reader. This versatile device features SecuGen's new flagship U20-A fingerprint sensor found in the Hamster Pro 20 product family but with Bluetooth capability that allows it to securely transfer fingerprint data wirelessly to a smartphone, tablet or computer. It is sleek and small enough to be carried in your pocket as a mobile fingerprint reader or placed solidly at a workstation as a traditional desktop reader.

SecuGen's Unity 20 Bluetooth reader is now compatible with Apple's iOS mobile operating system. Apple developers can easily build fingerprint biometric applications for the iPhone and iPad that work with the Unity 20 Bluetooth. The Unity 20 Bluetooth can be used right out of the box by calling SecuGen's Fingerprint Management System (FMS) software's simple API. Alternatively, it can be custom programmed to suit the needs of the targeted user base.

Internally the product includes a complete Linux development environment, SecuGen's fingerprint capture and NIST MINEX-compliant template extraction and matching algorithms, the OpenSSL cryptography library, and a 1 GHz CPU. The Unity 20 Bluetooth can also store encrypted fingerprint templates and process them in a closed environment without ever leaving the device.

"We have never had such a strong response to a product announcement. Customers love the look and feel of the device as most of the existing Bluetooth products on the market are about as attractive as a deck of cards," stated Jeff Brown, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for SecuGen. "The Unity 20 Bluetooth reader, on the other hand, breaks the mold and is a stunning device with a slim, sleek white case, a single button and three small LEDs. Our team has been able to do this while keeping the price of the product very low. We are very, very proud of this product. Our team has done a wonderful job."

Dan Riley, Vice President of Engineering added, "Our engineering has done a great job implementing the BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) protocol for compatibility with Apple's iOS devices. The Unity 20 Bluetooth is a breakthrough product that maintains our dedication to quality. Not only is it well engineered and versatile, the affordable Unity 20 Bluetooth fingerprint reader is also a beautiful product."

"We are relentlessly focused on the requirements of our partners around the world," stated Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen. "The Unity 20 Bluetooth is a response to a clear need that we have seen in the marketplace for biometrics and iOS compatibility. This is precisely what our partners have been asking for, and we are excited to support and help them succeed with new products that are attractive, powerful, and economical."

The Unity 20 Bluetooth fingerprint reader, like all SecuGen products, is priced for large scale deployments. The demonstration will take place in SecuGen's booth # 15136 at ISC West 2019 in the Sands Expo convention center in Las Vegas, Nevada from Wednesday, April 10 through Friday, April 12.
