Sony Opens Automotive Design Center in Oslo, Norway

Johannes Solhusvik becomes the Head of Automotive Design Centre at Sony Europe B.V. In the past, Johannes used to be BU-CTO of Aptina’s Automotive and Industrial Business Unit. Later, he was Omnivision's GM of Europe Design Center located in Norway. Now, one can expect a big boost of Sony automotive image sensor business in Europe.

    Wishing you a lot of success in your new job ! Put Europe on the Sony map ! And make sure you have fun in your new assignments.

  2. This is the person who brought CMOS image sensors to Toulouse. And then started the Oslo branch office of Photobit, later Photobit Technology, later Micron, and then the story as told above. A trailblazer!

  3. I'm guessing he'll take many of his old colleagues with him.
    When Aptina shuttered this design center (due to high labor costs), they kept Johannes and one FAE. When OVT offered a job to everyone else, Johannes and the FAE decided to stay with their team and quit Aptina!
