SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- UniPixel, Inc. (NASDAQ: UNXL), a provider of advanced touch solutions to the touchscreen and flexible electronics markets, today announced additional design wins that will feature UniPixel's XTouch and Diamond Guard products in two new 2-in-1 convertible programs from an existing leading PC manufacturing customer. These two wins expand the company's ongoing business with this customer to four programs.
Both programs will utilize UniPixel's XTouch high response touchscreen sensors offering with its outstanding finger-touch and capacitive stylus performance, coupled with the company's Diamond Guard hardcoat technology to reduce the overall cost and weight of the computing devices. One program will include a device with a 12.3-inch screen, and the other program will include a device with a 12.5-inch screen. Volume production for both programs is expected to commence during the fourth quarter of 2016.

We are pleased with the traction we are gaining in the market with our highly differentiated products. Our XTouch copper metal mesh touch sensor offers important advantages to PC manufacturers resulting from lower sheet resistance which allows for superior touch and stylus performance. And our Diamond Guard hardcoat helps PC manufacturers offer the thinner and lighter computing devices desired by their end-user customers."
