Fujitsu Develops World’s Smallest And Thinnest Palm Vein Sensor


    Fujitsu today announced it has developed the world’s smallest and thinnest palm vein sensor used for authentication purposes. The device is sized at just 29mm on a side and 11.2mm high, which makes it nearly 70% smaller than the smallest sensor that’s currently in Fujitsu’s line-up. It can capture the user’s palm veins at 20 frames per second.

    The contact-less sensor was developed in cooperation with subsidiary Fujitsu Frontech, which produces equipment for a variety of industries (including ATMs). The first device to incorporate the sensor will be a laptop aimed at businesses before possibly offering it in computers for the consumer market as well, according to a report in Japanese business daily The Nikkei.

    Fujitsu told the Nikkei that the business notebook will be $242 more expensive than comparable devices that don’t come with the sensor (but didn’t reveal when and in which market it will be launched).
