The Eikon family of USB capacitive fingerprint readers provide quick and reliable biometric authentication. Our patented technology reaches up into the ridges and valleys of the fingerprint to capture fine print details. The result is the ability to capture a wide range of fingerprints. The Digital ID Hardware Engine companion processor performs match-on-device and OTP generation in secure, dedicated hardware.

DigitalPersona offers three capacitive fingerprint readers in the Eikon family:

  • EikonTouch 710 - The only touch silicon FIPS 201 certified single finger capture device.
  • EikonTouch 510 - A SteelCoat protective coating provides added protection of the fingerprint reader for rugged environments
  • Eikon II - A swipe reader ideal for single user applications.
