“While IDEX has not named the client in question, it says it’s a repeat client with which IDEX won multiple design wins this past summer.”
IDEX has announced another design win involving its Cardinal fingerprint sensor, which has been selected by “a major Asian smartphone customer”, according to a statement from the company. While IDEX has not named the client in question, it says it’s a repeat client with which IDEX won multiple design wins this past summer.
Commenting on the design win, IDEX CEO Dr. Hemant Mardia called it a “a strong validation of our compelling value position,” and emphasized that his company’s sensors are “compact and cost efficient”. It certainly does suggest momentum for IDEX on the mobile integrations front, with the company having announced an integration into an LG smartphone and another integration with an unnamed China-based OEM earlier this month.
Dr. Mardia said that the smartphones concerned in this latest design win will likely launch later this year.
