packaging rules
Packaging Rules
  • Understand Customer need and constraints first !
  • Do not oversell packaging specs !
  • Sell existing packaging first: customers are happy to see lots of possibilities but most often choose between CB01, CB02 and CB08
a biometric solution
A Biometric solution


  • Current business model:
    • Atmel sells the FingerChip only (and processing facility for SM01),
    • recommends packaging solutions
    • gives and supports drivers & image reconstruction,
    • and qualifies and proposes partners who are not exclusive
  • Future business model:
    • Atmel will provide a biometric solution including bio-engine, and will get closer to the application level
    • Partners become exclusive on specific market segments or applications

Software application

Platform packaging and ergonomics (constraints)

how to engage a customer
How to engage a customer?

Identify the need

  • In terms of application:
    • What is the product (cell phone, PDA, what kind)?
    • What is the usage (logon, data encryption, etc…)?
    • What is the expected performance?
    • How many users? Authentication or Identification?
  • In terms of architecture:
    • What is the processor? Operating System?
    • How much memory is available?
    • What interface is required?
    • What are the system resources (bus speed, power supply, …)

How to engage a customer?

Identify the need

  • In terms of packaging:
    • Max size in length, width, thickness
    • Flat packaging required or finger guide allowed?
    • Colors or not?
  • Get back to Grenoble with these data
  • We will provide technical support, quotation, advice on best software/packaging for the application
