(NASDAQ: UNXL), today announced a design win for its XTouch sensor that will be included in a ruggedized 11.6-inch tablet designed for military and first responders by a major U.S. computer manufacturer. This is the second program award for UniPixel from this new customer during 2016. XTouch production orders for the tablet are expected to commence in the second quarter of 2016.
