NEXT Biometrics provides advanced fingerprint sensor technology that delivers uncompromised security and accuracy for the best possible user experience in the smart card, government ID, access control and notebook computer markets. By developing and commercializing large, highly accurate fingerprint sensor products, NEXT Biometrics provides leading global system integrators and device manufacturers the ultimate keys of security and convenience – the unique prints of the human finger.

The company’s patented NEXT Active Thermal™ technology uniquely allows the development of large fingerprint sensors in both rigid and flexible formats that are ideal for applications where quality, security and accuracy are critical.

NEXT’s large sensor size is essential for:

Accurately capturing fingerprint data in real-life situations across a broad variety of environmental conditions for virtually everyone;

    • Fast and simple one-touch fingerprint enrollment that allows local, user-operated fingerprint registration at higher quality and lower cost; and,
    • Meeting the requirements of key, mandatory industry testing and standardization schemes.

The ability to build a larger sensor at lower cost is NEXT’s key competitive advantage, helping the company achieve a proven track record for meeting the rigorous product, volume and delivery requirements demanded by top tier customers. To-date, the company has shipped more than 5 million fingerprint sensors worldwide.

NEXT has also received hardware certification to provide its unique fingerprint sensor solution to India’s Aadhaar government ID program. Aadhaar is the largest and most sophisticated biometrics-based government ID system in the world. The certification followed extremely rigorous government testing that included fingerprint readings of 5000 individuals in a variety of environmental conditions.

The company is headquartered in Oslo, Norway with sales, support and development operations in Seattle; Silicon Valley, Taipei, Prague, Bengaluru and Shanghai.
