Sony Production Capacity

The latest Sony semiconductor business summary sheet dated by Nov. 27, 2012 says that the company's production capacity is 40M units per month for CMOS sensors and 12M units a month for CCDs. The main image sensor fabs are:

  • Nagasaki TEC (CMOS Sensors)
  • Kagoshima TEC (CCDs)
  • Kumamoto TEC (CCD&CMOS Sensors)
  • Sony Device Technology (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (CCD&CMOS Sensor assembly)


  1. Does anyone have similar data from Samsung?

  2. What is the equivalent sensor size for the 40M unit?
