Software developers and OEMs can use electronic fingerprint identification in computing, commerce, and security applications with a new digital sen-sor chip and kit available from Veridicom Inc. (Santa Clara, CA). The sensor, about the size of a postage stamp, can be incorporated into networks, a keyboard or computer mouse, cellular phones, automo-bile instrument panels, television sets, cash registers, and home and office building en-trances. Samples are expected during the first quarter of 1998. The cost will be $100 per unit in small quantities and about $50 in OEM production volumes. Veridicom, formed in 1996, is a venture between Lucent Technologies and US Venture Partners. For more information, check out the company website at: www.veridicom.com.
