IDEX Biometrics has entered a worldwide license agreement with Asia-based smart card manufacturer Chutian Dragon to use IDEX’s biometric enrollment intellectual property.

As part of the agreement, IDEX has granted Chutian Dragon a royalty-bearing patent license to use certain IDEX patents in a bit to develop, manufacture, and sell on-card enrollment devices.

This license agreement follows on from a recently announced agreement signed in partnership with IDEMIA. Representatives of IDEX Biometrics believe that this decision to enroll a biometric smart card is ‘destined to grow in popularity and help bring biometric smart cards into mainstream use’.
