Pixelworks gains after adding ex-Apple exec to board

|By:, SA News Editor

David Tupman, head of Apple's iPhone/iPod hardware engineering efforts before leaving the company in 2011, has joined Pixelworks' (PXLW +4.7%) board.

A month ago, Pixelworks shot higher after disclosing in its 10-K over 10% of its 2013 revenue came from Apple. Apple is believed to prepping a next-gen set-top that will feature game controller support, and provide access to the content of select pay-TV providers.
