China IC design firms Goodix and Silead expand presence in touch IC and fingerprint sensor markets


China-based IC design firms including Goodix and Silead have expanded their presence in both the touch IC and fingerprint sensor markets, with a considerable spike in orders placed by China’s brand handset vendors, according to a report by Digitimes.com.

Goodix touchscreen controllers has a significant rise in new customers in China, with the company expected to surpass Taiwan’s FocalTech Systems as the largest touchscreen controller firm in the region.

In addition, Goodix recently rolled out its fingerprint identification chip solutions, which are expected to outperform its Taiwanese competitors in the market by securing orders from China’s brand handset vendors.

Silead has received fingerprint sensor orders from Coolpad and ZTE, with the company already shipping the orders.

FocalTech announced plans earlier this year to acquire China-based LCD driver IC specialist Orise Technology to enter the TDDI (touch with display driver) chip market, which is expected to be completed in January 2015.
