Embedded - Kimber
Kimber Module

Kimber is a reference design tailored for host-based processing in an OEM product where a USB connection to the host system is preferred and was designed to allow easy integration into OEM units.

This solution is a superior combination of optical and algorithmic elements that enable absolute security and unmatched security and ease-of-use.

Kimber includes off-the-shelf near-infrared illumination, a commercially available image sensor, proprietary lensing for image sensor, and leading-edge enrollment and authentication algorithms.

Dual iris enrollment and single- or dual-iris authentication is supported with software and algorithms that are portable to the OS used in the OEM device.


  • Single iris False Accept Rate (FAR) of 1 in 1.5 million.
  • False Reject Rate (FRR) less than 2%.
  • Optional dual-iris authentication.
