Reading time ( words)

UniPixel, Inc. UNXL, -1.97%a provider of Performance Engineered Films to the touch screen and flexible printed electronics markets, announced today the completion of the integration of the acquired Atmel XSense product technology into its own InTouch touch screen technology. The combined technologies are branded as XTouch.

The integration brings together the best attributes of each technology, which the Company expects will address key OEM (original equipment manufacturer) requirements for thinner, faster, lighter, and affordable technology. The Company believes XTouch could be a highly differentiated touch screen technology designed to deliver exceptional total performance and cost. The Company anticipates that XTouch will be especially well suited to address the segment of the market for larger screens, including notebooks, tablets and automotive touch screens.

Jeffrey A. Hawthorne, chief executive officer of UniPixel, commented, "This is an important milestone as we begin to aggressively ramp up our sales and marketing initiatives. We believe that XTouch is a leading-edge technology that will enable Tier 1 OEMs to produce devices with the attributes that individual and industrial consumers desire. We are now engaged in a growing number of evaluations with potential customers to qualify our products."

Mr. Hawthorne continued, "While we are in the early stages of actively marketing our products, we operate in large and growing markets that independent analysts currently estimate to be approximately $6 billion annually, and growing to approximately $9 billion by 2018. We look forward to firmly establishing UniPixel as a provider of highly differentiated touch screen technologies in the coming years."

Trade shows and technical conferences haven’t died; they’ve just moved online. The trade show season continues in virtual full force this week, and event coverage dominates the top five this week. Surprisingly, I don’t see events as this week’s theme. No, this week’s theme is “pundits.” We have Walt Custer’s industry outlook, seven experts on additive electronics, a designers conference keynote, and the IPC’s government relations expert. Don’t get me wrong: These folks are asked to speak to the industry for a good reason. They know their subject matter, and they present it skillfully. This week’s top five picks are worth reading.
