Yahoo: Finally Pixelplus disclosed that Sharp of Japan is its development partner for image sensors. Its PlusPixel2 technology seems to be based on Sharp's CCD pixel design.

In Q1 2007 Pixelplus completed a co-development agreement with Sharp to jointly develop the enhanced PO5030 VGA SoC sensor (PO5030) and, in July 2007 it unveiled samples of its PO5030, which incorporates Sharp's 2.2um pixel design and architecture based on Sharp's CCD technology.
