SecuGen Releases the Ultra-Slim Hamster Pro 10 and U10, an FBI-Certified OEM Fingerprint Sensor, at ISC West 2018
Santa Clara, Calif. (April 5, 2018)
SecuGen, a world leading optical fingerprint device and technology vendor, is pleased to announce the release of the Hamster Pro™ 10 and U10 sensor. Both the Hamster Pro 10 and the U10 sensor inside of it are FBI certified for PIV and Mobile ID FAP 10 applications.
The Hamster Pro 10 features the U10 sensor at its core and is supported by SecuGen’s free SDKs that operate on Windows, Linux, and Android. The U10 sensor is SecuGen’s smallest sensor to date measuring less than 13 mm thick and is based on patented technologies. The U10 sensor is therefore, suitable for embedding into virtually any device including laptops, ATMs, access control machines, and even small hand-held devices.
The ultra-slim Hamster Pro 10 itself is very compact, attractive, and economically priced for large scale deployments. The Hamster Pro 10 joins SecuGen’s growing product portfolio of high quality and rugged USB fingerprint readers that include the affordable Hamster Pro as well as SecuGen’s flagship Hamster Pro 20.
Dan Riley, VP of Engineering for SecuGen stated, “Since we started the company 20 years ago, we have been pushing optical fingerprint technology to its limits by making the sensor smaller and smaller while maintaining high image quality. With the U10 sensor, we have reached a critical milestone. This new sensor is small enough to be embedded into a laptop or hand-held device. Our team has done a masterful job with these products.”
“As always, we are listening to our partners and responding to their requirements,” added Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen. “They have been asking us for a smaller and less expensive sensor, and we are pleased to deliver the breakthrough Hamster Pro 10 and U10 sensor as a direct response to their expressed needs.”
SecuGen will showcase the Hamster Pro 10 and U10 in booth # 8131 at ISC West 2018, the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas, from Wednesday April 11th through Friday April 13th.
