Intel Heritage in Image Sensors

It turns out that well before the Tower acquisition, in 90s, Intel already manufactured image sensors. Photobit designed it for Intel, Intel manufactured it, and then later Intel decided CMOS image sensors would be a commodity business and got out. Intel was Photobit’s first partner/customer. Intel Capital was an investor in Photobit for strategic purposes.

  1. I don't think plan of Intel is to address image sensor kind of product, but just learn faster about being a foundry, especially for milking their digital advanced technology, they need to build anyway.
