Futronic SDK's

For fingerprint recognition development only, Fulcrum is the exclusive North and Central American distributor for Futronic Technology Co. With Futronic’s Fingerprint Recognition Software Development Kits (SDK), you can integrate fingerprint authentication or identification into any Windows, Linux, Mac, or Android-based application to make your system more secure and user-friendly. Futronic SDKs use the proprietary Futronic fingerprint recognition algorithm and work seamlessly with Futronic’s own exceptionally tough and reliable fingerprint scanners.
Advantages of working with the Futronic’s SDK:

  • Work seamlessly with the Futronic fingerprint sensors.
  • Perfectly suited for smaller databases and user populations.
  • Simplicity—the software tools and manual are small and straight to the point.
  • Affordable—no royalties for software deployment (when using Futronic sensors).
  • Live finger detection is available with some Futronic sensor models.

Fingerprint Recognition SDK for Windows

Fingerprint Identification and Verification in Windows

Introduction

Futronic's MS Windows Fingerprint Recognition Software Development Kit(SDK) is an excellent tool for users to develop their own MS Windows based fingerprint recognition application software. It works seamlessly with the FS80, FS82, FS88 and FS25. With the SDK, you can make use of Futronic proprietary fingerprint recognition algorithm without knowing the details of a purely mathematical process. So fingerprint recognition can be integrated into any application program to REPLACE the users' Logon password by a touch of finger in MS Windows platform to make your system more secure and user administration easier.

Who is it for?

Application software developers who want to add secure but convenient fingerprint authentication into any MS Windows based application software for easy user management and more secure logon control. The SDK can be used to make application programs for both standalone PC and many PCs connected in any networking environment.

The SDK can be used to make application programs for both standalone Mac PC's in any networking environment.

Fingerprint ANSI/ISO SDK

ANSI/INSITS and ISO/IEC Template Generation and Matching SDK

Introduction

Futronic ANSI/ISO SDK is form of API library to which application program can make function call to generate ANSI/ISO standard fingerprint minutiae template from captured fingerprint image. It comes with example application program(with source code) so that developers can start to use it quickly.

ANSI/ISO SDK contains the following:

ANSI/ISO Template Extractor: extract fingerprint minutiae template that is compliant to ANSI/INCITS 378:2004 and ISO/IEC 19794-2:2005. It generates ansi/iso template only from real time captured image using FS80/88

ANSI/ISO Template Matcher: match fingerprint minutiae template that is compliant to ANSI/INCITS 378:2004 and ISO/IEC 19794-2:2005. One of the matching templates must be generated from real time captured image using FS80/88.

They were certified by US Government National Institute of Standards Technology (NIST) in the Minutiae Interoperability Exchange Test (MINEX). Please check http://www.nist.gov/itl/iad/ig/ominex_qpl.cfm

Why Interoperability?

Fingerprint Minutiae Interoperability is necessary for large scale government and public personal verification programs. In these programs, there is a central database that keeps millions of personal fingerprint minutiae templates in one of the standard formats mentioned above. At the time of personal verification, fingerprint is captured somewhere. The minutiae template of the same standard format is generated and then sent to the central database for verification. Interoperability enables the template generation can be done by using any compliant template extractor. This ensures h/w and s/w from various providers can work under ONE system and such flexibility is very important to large scale nationwide programs.
