CBM Series

Providing device security at your fingertips


At a time when security and ID authentication are an increasing part of everyday life, device OEM manufacturers are turning to biometrics for help. As the drawbacks of PIN codes and passwords become clear, fingerprint checks offer higher levels of security for a host of different applications. An almost endless list includes ATMs, Point-of-Sale terminals, mobile devices, vending machines, access control and time & attendance terminals, safes and voting equipment. The challenge for OEM manufacturers is to find a robust, cost-effective identification solution that can be easily integrated into their product platform.

As the world leader in biometrics, IDEMIA can meet that need with the CBM* Series, the most compact optical fingerprint modules on the market. The solution draws on IDEMIA’s patented optical technology and biometric algorithms to provide best-in-class accuracy and reliability. The high quality of fingerprint acquisition, coupled with fast, secure processing on the modules’ embedded processor, provides outstanding performance. Meanwhile, the lightweight (20g) and compact design (53.7 x 33.7 x 13,65 mm) of the CBM Series make it a quick and easy solution to integrate.

Its extensive security features include encryption and digital signatures as well as FBI PIV IQS certification and fake finger detection.

The MSO SDK enables a swift integration into Windows, Linux and Android platforms.
