Even though Pixelworks (NASDAQ:PXLW) is not a famous name in the semiconductor sector, it has made several business advances of late and yesterday hit its 52-week price high of $6.08. So, can the stock continue rallying in the coming months on the back of its projector and other businesses? Let’s find out.With a $291.01 million market capitalization, Pixelworks, Inc. (PXLW) is a micro-cap company that designs, develops, and markets video and pixel processing semiconductors, intellectual property cores, and software solutions.

It has been working to transform its existing subsidiary, Pixelworks Semiconductor Technology (Shanghai) Co., Ltd, into a profit center for its mobile, projector, and video delivery businesses.
