  1. "why Credit Suisse analysts count Toshiba as a separate entity in 2017" Automotive business is keen on reliable deliveries of product with long life time. When the Toshiba "operation" was sold to Sony, probably the deal did not include the business itself but did include to continue making these chips for Toshiba, which is a very typical contract when selling a foundry. This is the reason why it still accounts as a Toshiba business. The main beneficiary of those image sensor is probably Denso who since then negociated a deal with Sony for the future products, probably only starting end of 2019. Toshiba remains a major player for the Vision Processors https://toshiba.semicon-storage.com/eu/company/news/2019/01/automotive-20190107-1.html. Pierre CAMBOU - Yole DĂ©veloppement
