BioStation 2a

Feel The Power of AI

The World’s First AI Security Solution Offering Unparalleled Security​

BioStation 2a represents a significant step in the evolution of security technology. It introduces deep learning into fingerprint recognition, enhancing access control with multiple credential options. The core innovation lies in its embedded AI processor, the NPU (Neural Processing Unit), finely tuned for deep learning, resulting in remarkable precision and speed in fingerprint recognition. Explore the future of security with BioStation 2a.

The World’s First Deep-Learning Processor Adopted

BioStation 2a is powered by an AI processor, the NPU (Neural Processing Unit). This ensures lightning-fast and precise fingerprint recognition, setting new standards for security solutions for the first time in the world.​

Over 30% Improvement in Fingerprint Recognition

Through deep learning, the accuracy of fingerprint recognition is increased extensively. The ability to extract templates from low-quality fingerprints, such as those that are noisy or distorted, has significantly improved.​

x5 Higher Capacity: Up to 100,000 users

Increase the capacity by fivefold, from 20,000 to an impressive 100,000. Even with this substantial capacity expansion, BioStation 2a boasts enhanced speed, thanks to its upgraded Processor, now running at 1.5GHz, and the application of Neutral Processor Unit(NPU) technology.​
