UniPixel’s product was chosen by a leading original design manufacturer (ODM) for inclusion in the new consumer Android tablet for the major US wireless carrier.
The product features an 8-inch high definition screen with a 1920 x 1200 LCD. The tablet went into production in late 2016 and is currently being offered to the carrier’s customers nationwide.
“This is the first program of our 25 design wins in 2016 that is in volume production,” Jeff Hawthorne, president and CEO of UniPixel, said. “We expect to continue to deliver touch sensors for this program throughout 2017.
“We continue to expand capacity at our Colorado Springs facility to address the production ramp for this product and the upcoming programs that will move into volume production in the coming quarters,” he added. “During the first half of 2016 we shipped approximately 330,000 sensors for three products compared to over 500,000 sensors shipped in the second half of 2016 for the wireless carrier’s 8-inch tablet. We’re pleased that this initial program is proceeding as expected. We also shipped initial small volumes to 12 other design win programs during the just completed fourth quarter.”
