Cypress Designs Image Sensors for ARRI

Business Wire: Cypress announced that its CMOS image sensor has been designed into 35 mm ALEXA digital motion picture camera from ARRI (Arnold & Richter Cine Technik GmbH), headquartered in Germany. A Cypress custom CMOS imager sensor also was designed into ARRI’s ARRIFLEX D20/D21 digital motion picture camera, which preceded the ALEXA.


  1. Any idea what foundry do Cypress use for this sensor? Is it also made in Tower like their other sensors?

  2. Is there any relationship between Arri and CMOSIS, the manufacturer of the Leica M sensor?
