Idex has been chosen by DongWoon Anatech, a specialist inlay and biometric algorithm supplier in Asia, to supply its SmartFinger IDX 3200 sensor for use in secure access biometric ID cards.

IDEX was chosen by DongWoon Anatech as the partner of choice in this application because its leading dual-interface sensor provides superior biometric performance, low power consumption and increased sensor flexibility. Dongwoon Anatech will work with a third-party card manufacturer to produce the final secure access ID card, planning for global promotion and supply.

The secure access market is evolving at a rapid pace and the introduction of biometrics offers end-users a unique and personalised security solution. This agreement with DongWoon Anatech builds on IDEX’s earlier success in the secure access market following the multi-year shipment agreement with the provider of global financial news and IT services announced in April this year. IDEX expects material shipments of sensors for this market to begin in H1 2020. 

Dave Orme, SVP of Sales and Marketing at IDEX Biometrics comments: “DongWoon Anatech have long been at the forefront of secure access solutions and we are excited to be joining forces and sharing our biometric expertise.”

Young Kyu Han, SVP of DongWoon Anatech adds: “IDEX’s superior fingerprint technology and systems expertise made them the obvious partner of choice. This technology represents the next generation of secure access solutions and I’m looking forward to offering this unique solution to our customers.”
