SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Uni-Pixel, Inc. (NASDAQ: UNXL), a provider of advanced touch solutions to the touchscreen and flexible electronics markets, today announced its 16th design win in 2016 for a 15.6-inch laptop notebook from an existing customer to be targeted to the consumer market.
The device will leverage XTouch metal mesh touch sensor technology to support superior performance alongside a new active stylus and touch controller IC partner. The device will also feature Diamond Guard hardcoat technology to reduce weight and cost of the touch panel.
Jeff Hawthorne, president and chief executive officer of UniPixel, said, "With this 16th win since the beginning of the year, we make an important move into the broader consumer market. This initial consumer program will be similar to the existing commercial program volumes that we have been awarded thus far. However, this underscores the confidence our existing customer is placing in our ability to deliver to a larger segment of the market. Successful execution on this order could lead to higher volume consumer programs in the future with this customer. We are excited with this opportunity."
Initial production validation units will be delivered to the customer during the current quarter (Q2 2016) with full-scale production expected to commence late in the upcoming fourth quarter or early in the first quarter of 2017. The announcement of this new product win, plus the programs originally acquired from Atmel, and the one product announced late in 2015, brings to 20 the total number of programs awarded to UniPixel.
