  1. US 7539412 and US 7071567 are two more that show combined front and rear facing camera modules. Also, US 8339494 and US 20110181763 show front and back side illuminated image sensors, but on a single substrate. They're both pretty interesting.

    US 20100097514 is similar to US 20130075607, with stacked substrates illuminated from the same side.
