Used in over 80% of the new fingerprint phone models announced in 2007, Atrua’s made-for-mobile fingerprint touch controls are the leading fingerprint recognition solutions for mobile phones. Citing application-oriented advantages like lower power consumption, smaller sensor area, superior accuracy, and the lowest solution cost, more mobile phone makers have selected Atrua’s fingerprint solution than any other. The fingerprint touch control also serves as a touch-sensitive input device, a feature leveraged by over twenty of the phones deployed with Atrua’s solution last year, making it easier to navigate the phone’s user interface.

“Atrua’s highly-integrated fingerprint touch control solution provides quick, easy and dependable authentication – meeting Toshiba’s demanding performance standards, while maximizing battery life and minimizing solution cost,” said Hiroyuki Goto, Technical Director, Toshiba Information Systems (UK) Ltd - Mobile Communications Division. “The sensor’s small area and narrow shape were also important factors that suited the G910’s sleek, sophisticated design.”

“Atrua is delighted to continue our close cooperation with Toshiba in their 4th mobile phone model enabled with an Atrua fingerprint touch control,” said Carl Temme, Atrua’s vice president of marketing. “Toshiba is one of Japan’s top mobile phone makers and their decision to choose Atrua has helped solidify Atrua’s position as the leading provider of fingerprint sensors in mobile phones.”
