Image Sensor Blog from Japan refers to Tech-On article in Japanese saying that Samsung plans to start BSI sensors mass production sometime in 2010. The first Samsung BSI product is supposed to be 14.6MP sensor delivering 30fps speed. The sensor is based on low-cost bulk Si process. The sensor is targeted to digital cameras, camcorders and high end camera phones. No data on its pixel size is given. At 1.4um pixel node BSI technology is said to improve sensitivity by 30% as compared with FSI.
The article also has a nice CMOS sensor market pie with Omnivision holding 26% share, Aptina-18%, Samsung-17%, SETi-7% (surprise!), ST-6% and Sony-4%.
