Toshiba may shift 1,100 workers to Sony in image sensor sale

TOKYO -- Toshiba looks to transfer up to 1,100 employees, or about 40%, at a production base in southern Japan to Sony in conjunction with the sale of chipmaking operations there, The Nikkei learned Monday.

     The two manufacturers are discussing the transfer in late-stage negotiations on the deal, which would cede production of complementary metal-oxide semiconductor, or CMOS, image sensors to Sony, the global leader in these camera components.
