10:20 EDTSNESony investing to increase stacked CMOS image sensor production
Sony (SNE) announced earlier that it plans to invest in Nagasaki TEC and Kumamoto TEC from the second half of FY14 through the first half of FY15 to increase its production capacity for stacked CMOS image sensors. This investment is primarily intended to reinforce Nagasaki TEC's layering process production capabilities, as well as Kumamoto TEC's mastering process facilities. The current investment is expected to enable Sony to complete subsequent stages of production, including the layering process, at Nagasaki TEC on semiconductor chips that have undergone the mastering process at Yamagata TEC, providing Sony with a fully integrated production system for stacked CMOS image sensors. This investment forms part of Sony's mid - to long-term plan to increase its total production capacity for image sensors to approximately 75K wafers per month and is expected to increase the current capacity of approximately 60K wafers per month to approximately 68K wafers per month in August 2015. Sony intends to bolster its manufacturing capacity for stacked CMOS image sensors, and further strengthen its integrated supply operations, and to thereby reinforce its leading market position. The total investment amount is expected to be approximately Y35B to be carried out in FY14 and in FY15. Of this, the amount to be invested in FY14, or approximately Y9B, was included in the forecast of capital expenditure for semiconductors in the current fiscal year of approximately Y65B announced on May 14. Note that OmniVision Technologies (OVTI) designs, develops and markets integrated and semiconductor image-sensor devices.
