The Quick Take

  • ROTH Capital Partners has a Buy rating and a $10 per share price target on Pixelworks.
  • ROTH maintains its Buy ranking on Pixelworks on news of progress with its ecosystem, customers, and products, reported ROTH Capital Partners analyst Suji Desilva in a Dec. 23 research note.
  • Pixelworks recently expanded its partnerships with Unity and Mediatek:
    • Pixelworks is helping facilitate development and publishing of mobile games for Unity, which has a platform for creating and operating interactive, real-time three-dimensional content.
    • Pixelworks and Mediatek, which provides chips for various devices, are collaborating to incorporate Pixelworks' visual technology software into the Mediatek's Dimensity 5G chipset.
  • Pixelworks announced that two brands' new smartphones use Pixelworks technology, which should help the company strengthen its position among mobile customers.
  • The company continues to make significant progress with its next generation X7 visual processor, its TrueCut motion imaging technology, and its rendering architecture solution.

ROTH Capital Partners analyst Suji Desilva reviewed some of the recent developments at Pixelworks Inc. (PXLW:NASDAQ), which provides innovative video and display processing solutions. The analyst noted the progress is encouraging.

"Pixelworks is building a strong ecosystem in the mobile gaming market," Desilva wrote.

More of Pixelworks' technology being in smartphones should better position the company among mobile consumers, Desilva added. Vivo's iQOO Neo5S smartphone uses Pixelworks' X5 Prod processor. OPPO's Find N folding smartphone employs Pixelworks software.

Pixelworks continues advancing other products, which have potential and are encouraging, Desilva indicated. The tech firm's next generation X7 visual processor is expected to further bolster the platform for mobile gaming in smartphones. Its TrueCut motion imaging is at the point now where it supports full development, distribution, and playback. Also, the company's rendering architecture solution allows developers to leverage Pixelworks when developing for Unity and other game engine platforms.
