Junichi Nakamura Awarded for Contributions to Image Sensors

Yahoo: Aptina is pleased to announce Junichi Nakamura, Ph.D., Managing Director for Aptina’s Tokyo CMOS Image Sensor Design Center is a recipient of the 2008 Takayanagi Memorial Award for Encouragement. Dr. Nakamura’s selection for the Takayanagi Memorial Award for Encouragement was based upon a number of factors including his active pixel sensor research and development that preceded the concept of modern CMOS image sensors in the early 1990’s; his invention of novel readout methods for active pixel sensors, and his leadership of the development of a CMOS image sensor for Super-Hi Vision cameras.

Today must be a day of awards. Yahoo: DALSA announces that Dr. Savvas Chamberlain, DALSA's founder, CTO and Chairman, has been made a Fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada. Founded in 1980, in 2008 DALSA employed almost 1000 people and recorded over $200 million in revenue.
