IBM Integrated Fingerprint Reader

Integrated Fingerprint Reader

IBM released a second generation of T42 models in autumn 2004 featuring Intel Pentium M 765 processors and an integrated fingerprint reader.

The fingerprint reader is produced by a company called UPEK, which is specialized to fingerprint readers.

It seems to be integrated as a USB device.

Furthermore, IBM states that there's an interface with the Embedded Security Subsystem.

A closed source driver is expected from the vendor in September 2005. Details on the driver are unknown at this time. See links below for more information.

Upek released the first beta-version of their driver for the BioAPI 1.10 framework. www.qrivy.net/~michael/blua/upek-bsp.html
