Atmel Receives Frost & Sullivan's Technology Innovation Award for FingerChip(R) Biometric Sensor

02.05.2008
Atmel(R) Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML) was recently recognized for its development of the FingerChip(R) fingerprint sensor technology at the 2008 Frost & Sullivan Southeast Asia Industrial Technologies awards presentation in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Mr. Yang Chiah Yee, Vice President of Asian Sales for Atmel, accepted the award on behalf of the Atmel FingerChip team.

Frost & Sullivan based its selection for this award on Atmel's continuous innovation in its patented fingerprint sensing technology and sensor solutions that enhances user experience with best-in-class false rejection performance and best durability.

According to Frost & Sullivan, "This innovation allows for a robust competitively priced fingerprint swipe chip, which can also maintain a high accuracy during scanning and imaging. It is as a result of all these endeavors that Atmel is being recognized as the deserving recipient of the 2008 Frost & Sullivan Technology Innovation Award in the South East Asian biometrics market."

"We are honored to receive this award from Frost & Sullivan,"
said Mr. Yee. "The dedication of our scientific, design, and development teams has resulted in an excellent product for the biometric technology industry that sets the standard for high quality and reliable fingerprint sensors for the Asian and global markets."

Biometric technology is rapidly gaining momentum in Southeast Asia, where government agencies and private corporations alike are developing numerous projects ranging from physical access control to logical access for laptops and personal digital assistants (PDAs).

Atmel's FingerChip sensor provides a high-quality solution for these developing markets.

The Atmel FingerChip sensor utilizes a thermal-based technology, highly sensitive to the slightest variation in fingerprint topographies, making it uniquely able to provide excellent image under difficult capture conditions. The technology also offers industry-leading ESD protection, mechanical robustness and strong fake finger rejection. Coupled with highly optimized matching engine, the FingerChip sensor achieves exceptional FAR/FRR performance and best user experience with minimal memory and processing power requirements.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
