AuthenTec, Inc., a biometric semiconductor products company, and Delphi have entered into a strategic agreement to develop a fingerprint security solution for the automotive industry. This collaborative process, sponsored by Delphi, will initially integrate AuthenTec's EntrePad(TM) AES4000 fingerprint sensor into an existing reference design platform. AuthenTec will develop and port its sensor control and matching algorithms to this platform and Delphi will develop the overall system requirements and hardware architecture and will handle vehicle integration of the product.
