Vol. 50 of CX-News has an article about the Kumamoto Technology Center, Sony’s production site for image sensors. Sony intends to start mass production of CMOS sensors using 300mm wafers in a 5000 sq.m clean room in May 2008.

One of the products to be produced on this line is IMX021 DSLR sensor. The 12.47MP sensor is based on 5.49um pixels. The sensor is able to operate at 10.39fps through its 12-channel LVDS output. Sony touts its column-level ADC as the biggest innovation in DSLR sensors.
