SecuGen to Display the U10, the World’s Smallest Optical, FAP 10 OEM Fingerprint Sensor at 2018 GSX


Santa Clara, Calif. (September 17, 2018)

SecuGen, a world leading optical fingerprint device and technology vendor, is pleased to be displaying the recently released U10 ultra-slim fingerprint sensor, at the 2018 Global Security Exchange expo in Las Vegas.

The U10 sensor is the sensor used inside of SecuGen’s newly released Hamster Pro 10 fingerprint reader. Only 12 millimeters thin, the U10 is the world’s thinnest FBI certified FAP 10 optical fingerprint sensor. The U10 can be easily embedded in nearly any type of hardware device, such as ATMs, access control devices, laptops, handhelds, industrial equipment and many other types of products.

SecuGen’s U10 sensor is FAP 10 certified by the FBI, rugged with an optical glass platen, and easy to integrate using SecuGen’s full suite of free software developer kits.

Both the U10 sensor and Hamster Pro 10 fingerprint reader are compatible with SecuGen’s free SDKs for Windows, Linux, and Android. The Hamster Pro 10 also works with Windows Hello right out of the box for convenient fingerprint login to Windows 10 computers.

SecuGen fingerprint products and technology are distributed through a worldwide network of development organizations including hardware OEMs, independent software companies, and systems integrators.

Jeff Brown, VP of Sales and Marketing for SecuGen stated, “We are excited by and proud of our new U10 sensor. Our OEM customers, have long asked for a much thinner sensor. Our team was able to make some remarkable breakthroughs. The U10 is the thinnest PIV certified optical fingerprint sensor in the world today. This makes it, from both a size and quality prospective, ideal for integration into a wide variety of products. We already are working with several ATM, POS and handheld vendors.”

“Our engineering team hit it out of the park with this new sensor,” Dan Riley, VP of Engineering stated. “They were able to design a FAP 10 optical sensor that appears to be the smallest in the industry. This was accomplished without sacrificing quality which was no small feat. We are very proud of the result.”

“We continue to expand and enhance our product line in response to the wishes of our partners,” added Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen. “Our strategy is, and has always been, to design and deliver products that can help our partners succeed in the marketplace. We listen very carefully to what they have to say. No doubt the U10 and Hamster Pro 10 continue this focus.”

The U10 sensor and Hamster Pro 10 fingerprint reader will be on display in SecuGen’s booth # 2983 at the 2018 GSX expo held at the Las Vegas Convention Center from September 25th to September 27th in Las Vegas, Nevada.
