Secugen SDA03M OEM Fingerprint Module

Stand-alone fingerprint recognition system that captures and stores fingerprint data and identifies or verifies registered users

Description of Secugen SDA03M OEM Fingerprint Reader

SDA03M fingerprint module is a complete, stand-alone fingerprint recognition system that captures and stores fingerprint data and identifies or verifies registered users. Designed to function entirely without an external PC, the SDA03M can be integrated into access control units, door locks and other products. It can communicate with external devices and is interoperable with data input from SecuGen USB fingerprint readers for a wide variety of implementations.

SDA03M fingerprint module uses next-generation fingerprint technology including SecuGen’s ruggedized, high image quality fingerprint optic module and high speed fingerprint matching algorithms for fast 1:1 and 1:N search capabilities.

Other features Auto-On:Auto-On is a feature that allows the sensor to automatically detect the presence of a finger when placed on the sensor and to send a signal to the "application" to capture the fingerprint. By eliminating the need for a user to prompt the "application" and wait until it is ready for capture, Auto-On is ideal for high traffic or high throughput uses.

Smart Capture: Smart Capture is a feature ensures quality fingerprint scanning of difficult fingers. By automatically adjusting the brightness of the sensor, Smart Capture allows the SecuGen fingerprint reader to capture high quality fingerprints from a wide range of traditionally difficult fingers, including those from dry, wet, scarred or aged skin, and even in bright ambient conditions such as under direct sunlight.

FAR and FRR of Secugen SDA03M Fingerprint Module

First, it is helpful to explain the meaning of these rates, what affects them, and how they are determined.

The False Rejection Rate (FRR, also called False Non-Match Rate or FNMR) states the percentage of instances that an authorized individual is falsely rejected by the system. The False Acceptance Rate (FAR, also called False Match Rate or FMR) states the percentage of instances that a non-authorized individual is falsely accepted by the system. FRR and FAR (or FNMR and FMR) are diametrically opposed. Therefore, raising the FAR will lower the FRR and vice-versa. Accordingly, FRRs and FARs can be adjusted to fit the requirements of the entire security system. SecuGen software products offer nine different security levels that allow you to adjust the FRRs and FARs to reach desired results.

In a real-world system, there are many factors that can affect FRR and FAR. For a minutiae-based fingerprint recognition system, these factors include: (A) the fingerprint capture device, (B) the fingerprint minutiae (template) extraction algorithm, (C) the fingerprint minutiae matching algorithm, (D) the user interface and (E) the user. There may be myriad other factors that can depend on the system, how it is used and the conditions in which it is used. For this reason, many tests for "performance," "accuracy" or other test that determine FRR and FAR must be able to control as many known factors as possible and maintain them consistently throughout all tests.

Independent of factors A, D, E and other variables, SecuGen's Pro algorithms have been extensively tested by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in one of the industry's most reliable, rigorous and statistically significant tests of performance and interoperability of core fingerprint algorithms (MINEX).
