UniPixel, Inc. has signed an agreement for joint development of UniPixel's touch sensor technology, specifically for flexible display applications, with General Interface Solution, Limited ("GIS"), a Taiwan-based, subsidiary of Foxconn. UniPixel will be responsible for designing and manufacturing development stage sensors after GIS provides the specifications for the sensor designs. GIS will be responsible for integrating the sensors into the display stack.
The parties will share reliability and test data with one another.
UniPixel conducted tests in which its XTouch sensors were folded and opened more than 200,000 times at a 2-millimeter radius at the fold. At the conclusion of the test, there was no damage to the XTouch sensors and no degradation to their performance capabilities. For a flexible display, it will be necessary to have a thin and pliable cover lens that will bend consistently without damage. UniPixel's patented Diamond Guard™ scratch resistant cover lens technology, coupled with patented sensor circuit technique, is an excellent fit for the flexible, bendable market.
