Texas Instruments TMS320C5515 Fingerprint Development Kit

Texas Instruments (TI) introduced the TMS320C5515 Fingerprint Development Kit for integrating of fingerprint biometric features into embedded systems. The C5515 Fingerprint Development Kit features a core board based on TI’s C5515 digital signal processor (DSP), two widely-used sensor types (swipe and optical), and optimized application software to ease product creation and implementation. The kit can reduce the product design cycle by 9 to 12 months. The TI TMS320C5515 fingerprint is priced at $79 USD.

The C5515 Fingerprint Development Kit provides fast and accurate fingerprint matching by leveraging a C5515 16-bit fixed point DSP to perform critical functions in the fingerprint algorithm such as filtering, sorting and transforming. The TMS320C5515 development kit can be used to create a variety of portable applications, including physical access control products (electronic door locks and safe boxes), USB smart keys and storage device, PC user identification, and time and attendance monitoring systems.
