Sony Plans to Invest JPY 35 Billion to Increase Image Sensor Output

Sony has announced plans to invest JPY 35 billion to increase production of stacked CMOS image sensors for smartphones and tablets at its Nagasaki and Kumamoto Technology Centres. The investment is primarily intended to reinforce Nagasaki TEC's layering process production capacity and Kumamoto TEC's mastering process facilities but will also be used to convert another factory, Yamagata TEC, into a facility for conducting the mastering process. Sony said the total investment will allow it to raise production by 13% to 68,000 wafers a month by August 2015. The company has a mid to long-term plan to increase its total production capacity for image sensors to approximately 75,000 wafers per month. Around JPY 9 billion will be invested in 2014, coming out of the JPY 65 billion capex budget for semiconductors, with the remaining JPY 26 billion to be invested in the 2015 fiscal year.
