Meet Synaptics: CEO Bergman says 'biggest threat' is innovation slowdown
In an exclusive interview with The Fly, Synaptics (SYNA) CEO Rick Bergman commented on the company's competition and "breakthroughs" coming soon: "Our ability to provide full hardware/software platforms for HMI and biometric applications is unique in the industry; others may provide individual components used in those applications, but not a platform like Synaptics provides. Accordingly, our biggest threat isn't competition, but a slowdown in innovation in our key markets, such as smartphones. Fortunately, Synaptics and our innovative partners have a number of exciting breakthroughs coming in the near future."
