Proprietary Fingerprint Algorithm for Restricted Hardware Environments

Contact Us

Leading fingerprint algorithms portable to any hardware. Innovatrics Small Area Matcher consists of fine-tuned algorithms for small low-resolution fingerprint readers on restricted hardware with low storage capacity. It provides registration for fingerprint verification and identification applications.

New Generation of Smart Cards with No Built-in Battery

Our Small Area Matcher (SAM) is an ideal solution for smart cards with integrated fingerprint readers and for custom embedded platforms. In a smart card, it can run even without a built-in battery and draw necessary power just from the contact reader.

Enhance Speed, Accuracy and Template Size

The speed and accuracy of SAM algorithm, as well as the template size, can be optimized in order to achieve the required performance for a given use case on a target platform. Our algorithm is able to compare a user’s fingerprint to a template stored in a card in record time on the stock 100 MHz ARM M4 MCU.
