Fujitsu to Offer World’s Smallest, Slimmest and Lightest Contact-Free Vein Sensor
Fujitsu Limited, Fujitsu Frontech and Fujitsu Laboratories today announced a practical version of the world’s smallest, slimmest and lightest contact-free vein authentication sensor.
Fujitsu has worked to develop and commercialize thin, miniature sensors capable of being integrated into the design of notebook PCs. However, in order to make the technology readily applicable to an even broader range of applications, there has been significant demand for even thinner and smaller sensors that maintain the same high standards of security and usability.
There are a multitude of vein authentication devices in the market, including those for the finger or back of the hand, but the newly developed sensor is unique for its compact form factor, being 5.2 mm thinner and 56% lighter than conventional sensors. At approximately 4.0 g, the size has been reduced to a 25.0 mm width, a 25.0 mm depth, and a height of 6.0 mm. This makes it easier to incorporate into a broader range of electronic devices, including the thinnest of today’s notebook PCs and tablets.
With an eye toward incorporating this sensor into a variety of electronic devices, Fujitsu has developed the world’s smallest, slimmest and lightest vein authentication sensor among a multitude of vein authentication devices, including those for the finger or back of the hand.
