Synaptics Announces ‘Analyst and Investor Meeting’ for Dec. 12

Synaptics is planning to host an ‘Analyst and Investor Meeting’, and will webcast it live on December 12th.

Synaptics Announces 'Analyst and Investor Meeting' for Dec. 12In a statement announcing the meeting, the company indicated that it will feature presentations from Synaptics’ senior executives, which “may include information regarding current and future products and technologies, end-market trends, and the company’s current financial prospects.”

Such “future products and technologies” will almost certainly include in-display fingerprint sensor technology. Synaptics announced last month that one of its fingerprint sensors designed for under-glass deployments will be used in the display of a mobile device by the end of this year. Other biometrics specialists have also been racing to develop in-display fingerprint sensor technology, with Fingerprint Cards and Qualcomm having announced their own solutions this year, but none have yet been realized in a commercially sold device.

So if Synaptics really is expecting such a deployment of its own technology, it’s likely to be a key focus of discussion in an Analyst and Investor Meeting. The December 12th meeting will start at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time, and will be broadcast live through Synaptics’ Investor Relations website.
