Next Biometrics has received a new purchase order for fingerprint sensors used in Point-of-Sale (POS) terminals built by Taiwan-based TYSSO (Fametech, Inc.). First shipments are expected in the first quarter of 2019.

TYSSO has selected NEXT Biometrics to provide its sensor technology due to the outstanding biometric performance of NEXT fingerprint sensors and proven record as a volume supplier of leading-edge biometric sensor modules and readers to top-tier customers worldwide.

"I'm extremely pleased NEXT sensor technology has again been chosen to meet customer demand for biometric point-of-sale terminals," said Ritu Favre, CEO NEXT Biometrics. "This show of support from TYSSO is evidence of the value NEXT's large-area fingerprint sensors are delivering to the market. We look forward to a long and successful relationship with the team at TYSSO."

TYSSO plans to use NEXT's advanced, large-area NB 2023 sensor modules in mobile POS devices for the U.S. market. Growth rates for biometric POS terminals are expected to outpace those for other POS devices in coming years. The enhanced security and convenience of biometric solutions are ideally suited for wide adoption in key applications like payments, access control and government IDs.

"We chose NEXT to supply fingerprint sensors for our POS product lines for a number of reasons, but performance and reliability were the key differentiators," said Louis Wong, TYSSO General Manager. "Our customers are extremely demanding, so we required a proven supplier like NEXT to help ensure our success in the U.S. market."
