California-based fingerprint sensor firm SecuGen has announced the unveiling of the soon to be released Hamster Pro 10 fingerprint reader.

The Hamster Pro 10 is a Mobile ID FAP 10, FBI Certified fingerprint reader that is compatible with SecuGen’s free SDKs. It is powered by SecuGen’s U10 optical sensor. The firm says the U10 is among the smallest, high image quality optical fingerprint sensors on the market today with a thickness of just over 13 millimeters.

“With the Hamster Pro 10, our team has taken SecuGen’s optical fingerprint technology and scaled it down to a tiny sensor while retaining its renowned image quality,” said Dan Riley, SecuGen’s VP of Engineering. “The almost unbelievably small U10 sensor inside is a remarkable feat of engineering. This is what our developer partners have been asking for, and we have delivered.”

Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen added, “As always, we are relentless in our pursuit of higher quality and better products at increasingly lower price points. Our team has done it again, and our partners are giving us amazing feedback, including a major manufacturer for a laptop design that incorporates the U10 sensor. We are very proud of these new products.”

The Hamster Pro 10 and U10 are scheduled for release in early Q2 of 2018. Both products will be on display at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, January 9 through 12, 2018 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, in booth #21767 of South Hall.
