IDEX ASA today announced an additional design win with a major Asian smartphone customer who has selected IDEX’s Cardinal touch fingerprint sensor for integration into a further mobile handset program. This additional design win has been secured with the same major Asian OEM which IDEX announced multiple design wins for on August 8th this year.

“I am very pleased to secure a further design win with this major customer. We have already won multiple design wins with the OEM, and this additional program is a strong validation of our compelling value position. This handset is expected to be launched during H1 2017. We expect the first handset from this OEM with IDEX sensor to be launched later in Q4 ” says Dr. Hemant Mardia, CEO of IDEX. “The Cardinal product family is highly suitable for OEMs demanding compact and cost efficient sensors, and we are pleased to see continued strong customer momentum for this product”, he continued.
