“The design-win related to the augmented reality (AR) product is of strategic importance for the company. The activity and opportunity pipeline we see in this market segment is impressive. The technical attributes of TLens, its speed, compactness, low power consumption and no gravity sensitivity, are viewed as key for AR applications.

Smartphone-related activity remains high. Together with our customers, we are expending a lot of effort and resources to mature cases and qualify TLens for commercial use. We have made encouraging progress during the quarter, even though there are hurdles still to be overcome.  We are strengthening our organisation in order to handle the predicted increase in activity.”, said Øyvind Isaksen, the CEO of poLight.
