leading global supplier of fingerprint sensors in mobile phones and tablets. By combining
these strengths, FPC has developed the most attractive mobile touch fingerprint sensor on
the planet. It is with great pride that we announce a follow-up order for the ramp so soon
after the first purchase order for the FPC 1020 related to a smartphone and with a Global

quality and low power consumption have distanced FPC from any competition for touch
