That is good news. Is this from Apple for Apple? Apple must be conceptulizing a new product.

It only an expansion?

This investment is simply for increasing the producing capacity or it is being spent after some research in sensor design as well?

Are they actually stacking image sensor slices in order to create increased sensitivity?

No they are not multiple slices of Image Sensor, but they have stacked the image sensing part over the circuit part, meaning they have differentiated the electronic circuit part and the image sensing part on the semiconductor subtract. This way they are being able to have better control over the image sensing.

High dynamic range vs number of pixels

Seems to me that we are going to enter a. Phase of more features not more pixels. I'm interested in better HDR not more pixels these days...

It make sense to integrate the CMOS with some processing capacity to improve the image capture quality. Right now most of the processing happens after the image is captured but this can be improve.

Yes, this improvement can be considered in the same direction, the sensing part is off loaded to some other segment so that it will less affect by other signals on the same substrate.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
