Kodak accquires imaging chip business

Earlier this year Kodak stopped manufacturing traditional cameras and decided to focus on digital cameras.
National Semiconductor Corp. on Tuesday (Aug. 24) said it has signed a definitive agreement to sell its imaging chip business to Eastman Kodak Co.
“Kodak has a long history of image sensor innovation in both CCD and CIS technologies,” said Chris McNiffe, general manager of Kodak’s Image Sensor Solutions organization and vice president of its Display & Components division, in a statement. “The addition of the Imaging business from National will further strengthen our CIS design and development expertise as we target high volume applications such as consumer digital still cameras and camera phones.”
