Fingerprint Cards has extended its collaboration with Infineon Technologies, becoming a Premium Partner of the firm and increasing its focus on innovation within the biometric space. 

It’s a deal that seeks to build on the pair’s existing work to ‘drive collaboration, development and innovation’ in bringing biometric technologies for authentication into payments and broader IoT applications.

Michel Roig, President Payment & Access at Fingerprints, commented on the link: “Deeper collaboration with Infineon and its partners will help us bring stronger, more convenient authentication to a broader range of applications to make our lives simpler, and safer. 

“We will focus on driving innovation in current and future production lines, including access control, payment cards and other applications within the high-security ecosystem.”

Infineon’s Partner Ecosystem is a highly selective network of specialised engineering companies with a proven ability designing solutions and services corresponding to the needs of the market and customer.

It builds on a successful period for the firm – after last year, Fingerprints surpassed the 1.5 billion sensors shipped milestone, highlighting the significant and sustained adoption of biometric technology. 

Tolgahan Yildiz, VP Trusted Mobile Connectivity & Transactions at Infineon Technologies AG, added on the deal: “We’re pleased to welcome Fingerprints as a Premium Partner after the announcement of our joint development on Infineon’s SECORA Pay Bio payment card solution in November 2022. 

“Biometrics can be a trusted link between the physical and digital worlds to help us unleash the full potential of digitalisation. Our partnership with Fingerprints will strengthen the collaboration and help ensure innovation and growth for trusted biometric solutions for years to come.”
