Pixart Starts Shipping Optical Touch Sensors

Digitimes: Pixart is expected to see its revenues for Q3 2009 grow at a sequential rate higher than the 30% it projected earlier due to increasing demand for its optical touch panel solutions from the PC segment, according to Digitimes sources.

Pixart is Quanta Computer's sole supplier of optical touch solutions used in all-in-one PCs and notebooks and it began shipping to Quanta earlier this quarter. The company expects to sign more customers in the optical touch sector beginning in 2010, the sources added.
