Aptina's Sandor Barna Talks about Industry Future

Digitimes publishes Q&A session with Aptina Marketing VP Sandor Barna. Some points he mentioned are:
  • Aptina expects to see growth in the second quarter in the handset, notebook and DSC markets.
  • Sony "may adopt Aptina's CIS products in the future because of cost concern."
  • Aptina targets mid-range and high-end applications and will not sacrifice profits in order to win market share.
  • There is a possible trend of consolidation. Smaller companies may develop certain technologies that interest first-tier CIS suppliers, who may then obtain these technologies by acquiring the small companies.
