PalmSecure™ SDK

The PalmSecure SDK is a software development kit (SDK) for developing solutions and products that use the PalmSecure sensor.

  • Supporting efficient development
    The SDK contains all the hardware and software required for development, and a complete set of all documentation.
    Furthermore, questions that arise during development can be answered quickly using the dedicated website.
  • Developing products using new ideas
    The SDK makes it possible to develop a variety of newly envisioned products that utilize palm vein authentication. Palm vein authentication technology can also be integrated into existing applications.

SDK Contents

The SDK contains the following hardware, software, and documentation.

Hardware

PalmSecure sensor, Guide, Holder, USB Interface cable (1 m)

Software

Authentication Library A library of programs which enrolls palm vein data and authenticates users. The Authentication library enables development of customized applications for the Palm vein authentication system which runs on Windows or Linux.
Sensor driver The driver for operating the sensor.
Sample application Provides C, C++, C#, Java source code and sequence charts that enable easy and rapid architecting of applications. These are available in standalone or client/server configurations.
Interface library sample
(Java/.NET)
The sample programs which interface between applications created by the Java language or .NET environment and the Authentication library created by the C language.
Sensor maintenance tool Provides a function to diagnose malfunctions in the sensor that can be used to identify failures.
Introduction tool A sales support tool that gives an easy to understand introduction to the operation of the palm vein authentication system, including enrollment of vein data and authentication.
Firmware update tool The firmware update tool provides support for the sensor maintenance. The firmware on the sensor unit can be updated easily with the firmware update tool.

Main documents

System development guide Describes procedures, precautions, and the development environment for developing palm vein authentication systems.
Authentication library
reference guide
The interface (API) specifications for integrating the palm vein authentication functionality into an application.
Interface Library Sample
Manual For Java/.NET
Describes how to use and apply the Interface Library samples for Java/.NET, when the Palm Vein Authentication system application is developed in Java/.NET
Hardware drawings A collection of diagrams related to the sensor and other hardware, and how to mount the sensor. This collection of diagrams can be used to effectively mount the sensor and design the palm guide to suit the customer's equipment.
