UniPixel, Inc., 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. This product award follows delivery of more than 2,000 production validation units to the customer for this program, as well as provision of design-in and testing support services to the computer manufacturer's ecosystem, including the ODM (original design manufacturer) and Touch Panel Module Integrator.
Brett Gaines, vice president of marketing at UniPixel commented, "XTouch qualification for this program involved a rigorous process which included passing MIL-STD-461F military grade testing for performance under adverse environmental and operating conditions including moisture, electromagnetic interference, operation with gloved fingers, and stylus input. We are pleased that XTouch met the highly demanding requirements for this particular application, but we are even more excited to have won our second production program with this new Tier 1 PC OEM customer."

As an alternative to traditional touch sensors, XTouch provides the ability to turn unique touch-based concepts into functional designs at lower total system costs.
