DigitalPersona U.are.U 5100 Fingerprint Module Achieves FBI Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Certification

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- DigitalPersona, Inc., a global provider of authentication and access management solutions, today announced the company's U.are.U® 5100 series of fingerprint readers and modules has achieved Personal Identity Verification (PIV) certification. The U.are.U 5100 series makes high-efficiency, standards-compliant biometrics practical for handheld ID terminals and is designed to support a growing number of Civil ID applications such as voting, benefits-checking and micro-finance.


The U.are.U 5100 meets and exceeds the Federal Information Processing Standard 201 (FIPS201) Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Image Quality Specification, a key industry standard. It produces 500 dpi fingerprint images in ANSI and ISO/IEC standard formats. The module is now certified by the FBI to be PIV-071006 compliant and is registered in the IAFIS Certified Products List. The U.are.U 5100 family of fingerprint modules and readers is available through DigitalPersona's global network of solution providers. For more information, visit

"The U.are.U 5100 frees mobile terminal vendors from having to choose between power consumption, size, durability and standards compliance when incorporating biometrics," said Jim Fulton, vice president at DigitalPersona. "Our fingerprint biometrics solutions have proven to be smaller, longer-lasting and more affordable than competitors for Civil ID deployments, as noted by our success in delivering hundreds of thousands of readers to support elections in Brazil and Nigeria."
