Yole on Apple Activity in Grenoble Area

EETimes article on fabs mentions Apple imaging group activity: "Or, take the example of the imaging-tech landscape growing rapidly in the Grenoble/Lyon area. Pierre Cambou, activity leader for imaging and sensors at Yole Développement, explained that imaging technology innovation often demands advancements in new manufacturing techniques. In return, it creates a tech-driven environment.

Reportedly, more than a dozen Apple engineers are moving to Grenoble to open an R&D center. This is happening precisely because the region has the expertise in image sensors and production — led by ST. “You need to have factories” to make an ecosystem, said Cambou.


  1. When does Apple start CIS design? :)

  2. Nope... But that should kick start the Apple car rumor again, remember ST doing a lot of promo on their flicker free ADAS CIS????

  3. Yeah, I'm sure Apple will overtake Sony in making sensors... I mean if Canon can, oh wait...
