There is a nice article on:

http://image-sensors-world.blogspot.nl/2014/06/on-semi-presentation-on-aptina.html

They acquired TrueSense (= CCD industrial sensors) and now Aptina. Aptina is a small player in mobile, but ok-ish for industrial and DSC (AFAIK, they are supplying the sensor for the Nikon 1" system camera).

I also didn't know On Semi formerly was part of Motorola Semi.
