“This was a quarter which gave us another design-win in the barcode area, bringing the total to four so far.

Although the situation for many smartphone OEMs remains challenging, we are seeing good interest in our solution and progress has been made. The augmented reality cases we are exploring remain promising, and there are candidates for additional design-wins this year. From the operational and organisational perspective, things continue to improve and our overall readiness is good, although areas for improvement are expected to emerge as we start to increase production and customer deliveries over time.”, said Dr. Øyvind Isaksen, the CEO of poLight.
