AuthenTec Introduces World's Smallest Touch-and-Go Fingerprint Sensor at Computex Taipei 2002; New EntrePad AES3500 Enables Personal Security for Portable Consumer Devices
Fla., Melbourne, Australia

Lowest Power Requirements of Any Fingerprint Sensor Available

AuthenTec, the leader in advanced biometric semiconductor technology, today introduced to the Asian market the EntrePad(TM) AES3500, a fingerprint sensor specially designed to enhance personal security in the mobile PC, wireless and PDA markets.

With a sensor array only 6.5mm x 6.5mm square, the EntrePad AES3500 is by far the smallest touch-and-go biometric device available today. Its small size and low power operation meets the requirements for small battery operated consumer devices. Now laptops, cell phones, PDAs, handheld devices and other mobile electronics can have the advantage of superior security and convenience.

"The size and technical sophistication of the newest EntrePad sensor sets the standard for fingerprint biometrics, and will drive adoption of biometric security for everyday products," stated Scott Moody, President and CEO of AuthenTec. "The AES3500 is truly a revolutionary product, combining convenience, security, reliability and low cost all in one very small package."

The EntrePad AES3500 is based on AuthenTec's patented subsurface TruePrint(TM) technology, which allows fingerprints to be read below the surface of the skin, thereby eliminating any acquisition or recognition failures relating to contamination such as dirt, grime, dry skin or excessive moisture -- issues that are problematic with surface imaging fingerprint sensors.

The AES3500's Select-a-bus architecture allows for easy, glueless integration into new designs. The on-chip interfaces include USB, 8 bit parallel, serial, and both synchronous and asynchronous serial.

AuthenTec will demonstrate the EntrePad AES3500 at Computex Taipei 2002, June 3-7 in Taiwan at booth number 727 in the U.S.A. pavilion. AuthenTec will also showcase several customer products that have integrated TruePrint technology from companies such as Synaptics, ASUSTek, Acer, Targus and SCM Microsystems.

Production quantities of the AES3500 are available now. In addition AuthenTec provides a complete range of evaluation kits and reference designs to help integrate its TruePrint technology into customer designs. The price is under $10.00 for 500,000 unit orders. All inquiries should be directed to WinTek at 886-2-2712-5025.
