Fingerprint Cards' swipe sensor technology has been awarded yet another Design Win (DW) from an existing, well-renowned Asian OEM customer for an additional smartphone scheduled to be launched by a top US operator during the first quarter of 2014.

Fingerprint Cards (FPC) has earlier announced multiple mobile and tablet DWs in Japan, China and Korea, with the first phones in Japan and Korea recently launched to the market. FPC is now proud to announce another major follow-up DW from one of its most distinguished customers for launch with a major US operator. Due to the prevailing competitive situation, the mobile phone manufacturer and the operator want to remain anonymous until further notice.

This latest DW is for a smartphone being launched by a top US operator, and we are proud that this important and innovative feature is being requested by a leading player in one of the world's principal markets. The latest DW is a result of the strong market recognition we are receiving for our world-class product quality and dedicated customer support. Due to its world-leading capacitive fingerprint technology, image quality and lower power consumption, FPC has now further strengthened its world-leading position in fingerprint sensors for mobile phones and tablets. We expect to secure additional multiple DWs with both new and existing customers during the remainder of 2013 and beyond.
