TAINAN, Taiwan -- Himax Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:HIMX) ("Himax" or "Company"), a leading supplier and fabless manufacturer of display drivers and other semiconductor products, today announced design-ins with key panel makers and OEMs for its best-in-class single-chip touch and display driver integration ("TDDI") solution, HiSIT(TM).

Jordan Wu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Himax Technologies, Inc., commented: "The industry is moving towards full in-cell panels driven by top-tier TFT-LCD makers seeking to introduce value-added innovations. Himax is one of the pioneers in offering one-chip TDDI solutions that requires significant integration complexity. We are excited about the projects awarded from these top tier customers, which demonstrates Himax's technological advancement and leading position in the latest full in-cell technology. We anticipate shipping our TDDI solution by the fourth quarter this year.
