Swedish biometrics firm Fingerprint Cards has collaborated with Chinese transaction security provider FEITIAN to introduce contactless biometric payment cards.

Under the alliance, Fingerprint’s biometrics technology will be used in FEITIAN’s contactless payment cards.

The FEITIAN contactless payment cards technology will integrate the T-Shape module. The module forms part of Fingerprint’s 1300-series.

Fingerprints SVP of Business Line Smartcards Thomas Rex said: “We are pleased to collaborate with FEITIAN in our continuation to extend our partnerships with card manufacturers around the world and to see our uniquely designed T-Shape in the hands of more and more customers.”

The T-Shape module is said to use ultra-low power. The module makes use of standard processes to be integrated in smartcards, Fingerprint said.

FEITIAN vice president Yan Yan said: “We chose biometric technology from Fingerprints as they have the leading power consumption solution on the market and proven cutting-edge biometric performance, and hence offers the contactless smartcard market an irresistible biometric solution.”
