Panasonic resuming image sensor R&D with eye on 8K

OSAKA -- Panasonic will once again develop image sensors after freezing such operations for the last few years, aiming for applications including 8K ultrahigh-definition technology.

     Image sensors turn light into electronic signals, and are used in digital cameras, smartphones and other devices. CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor) sensors are a well-known type. Panasonic will spend around 10 billion yen ($80.8 million) to develop next-generation image sensors, with plans to release them in fiscal 2018.
