FPC is proud to announce this DW with a Chinese Top 5 smartphone OEM, which has a planned date for the start of mass production in October 2014 and a target sales volume for this phone of 3 million units. The Chinese OEM wants to remain anonymous until further notice.
Johan Carlström, President and Chief Executive Officer of FPC, comments:
"FPC recently announced its new capacitive touch fingerprint sensor FPC1021, which is 33 % smaller than FPC1020. Now it is with great pride that we announce the first DW for the FPC1021 and with a Chinese Top 5 player in a flagship model. FPC's superior fingerprint technology, image quality and low power consumption have distanced FPC from any competition for sockets in mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. We expect several more design wins for our touch fingerprint sensors during the coming months."
*FPC definition of Design Win (DW): The decision by a device vendor (OEM or ODM) to start development of one or several commercial product(s) incorporating FPC's technology into such new product(s).
