SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- UniPixel, Inc. (NASDAQ: UNXL), a provider of advanced touch solutions to the touchscreen and flexible electronics markets, announced that it has been awarded a new 2-in-1 convertible program from a Tier 1 customer. The program will leverage UniPixel's XTouch™ highly responsive touchscreen sensors to simultaneously deliver outstanding finger touch and capacitive stylus performance. The program will also utilize the company's Diamond Guard hardcoat technology to reduce the overall cost of the touch module by eliminating the need for other materials. Production validation units are expected to be delivered in the second calendar quarter and volume production expected to commence near the end of calendar year 2016.

Jeff Hawthorne, president and chief executive officer of UniPixel, said, "We are pleased that this leading PC manufacturer, upon deciding it wanted to build a new product with best-in-class touch and stylus performance, turned to UniPixel for our XTouch sensor technology. The low sheet resistance and proprietary design features of XTouch copper-based metal mesh sensors enable an exceptional end-user experience for both finger-touch and stylus usage. Coupled with our Diamond Guard hardcoat, this customer will be able to produce a device that is lighter, thinner, and faster with exceptional stylus performance. Our technologies support product designers who want to offer new devices with thinner bezels and cover lenses."

Mr. Hawthorne concluded, "This is the third business award or purchase order from three different customers that UniPixel has received so far in calendar 2016. We are off to a good start for the new year."
