Toshiba in talks to sell image sensor business to Sony

Demand for high-end CMOS image sensors is growing.

TOKYO -- Toshiba is in late-stage talks on selling its image sensor operations to Sony in a deal estimated at around 20 billion yen ($163 million).

     The move, which comes as Toshiba gets serious about restructuring after a damaging accounting scandal, would cede some of its production facilities in the southern Japanese city of Oita. Sony would gain an even firmer position as global leader in image sensors used in smartphones and other camera-equipped electronics.
