AuthenTec's patented Active Capacitance Sensing Technology
provides a higher immunity to parasitic effects than passive capacitive sensing, delivering a high signal-to-noise ratio and the ability to capture fingerprints from the widest range of skin types.
HSPD-12 and PIV Cards
The U.S. HSPD-12 program mandates that approximately 10 million federal employees and contractors be issued ID cards with fingerprint templates. The fingerprint technology must meet the FIPS 201 standard. Other U.S. programs include TWIC, First Responders, FIXS and more.
To ensure interoperability, governments select products certified to established standards. By meeting FIPS 201, the P6500 offers the industries best and only silicon fingerprint sensor to meet the standard set by NIST and the FBI.
From the layout of the electronic printed circuit board to the metal housing, every measure has been taken to provide the end user with unmatched ESD protection. In addition, special ESD suppression components were included in the design of the P6500 to give it every advantage in this critical area.
The AuthenTec Sensor Advantage
AuthenTec's patented silicon fingerprint sensor technology has a 10-year history of successful deployments in millions of products across the globe. AuthenTec's silicon fingerprint sensor technology has undergone years of "real world" testing resulting in a mature and reliable solution that is ready for today's pressing Identity Management applications.
Fingerprint Algorithm Support
The P6500 enjoys broad compatibility with today's leading fingerprint algorithm vendors including: Cogent, Sagem, NEC, Motorola, Bioscrypt, BioKEY, Innovatrics, Suprema, Neurotechnology and more. P6500 customers can choose the algorithm partner that best meets their needs.
