Eastman Kodak Company signed an agreement to purchase the Imaging business from National Semiconductor Corp., which develops and manufactures complimentary metal oxide semiconductor image sensor (CIS) devices. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The new deal enhances Kodak's capabilities to provide CMOS image sensors to consumer markets. A long-time innovator in high-performance charged coupled device (CCD) image sensors and CIS technologies, Kodak now adds additional resources and technologies that will further strengthen its ability to design next generation CIS devices that promise to deliver improved image quality and complex on-chip image processing circuitry.

"The growing popularity of digital cameras, camera phones and other imaging centric consumer electronics products has created a significant opportunity for Kodak to leverage its portfolio of CIS technologies," said Chris McNiffe, general manager of Kodak's Image Sensor Solutions organization and vice president of its Display and Components division. "This acquisition demonstrates Kodak's continued commitment to CIS products, and accelerates our longer-term goal of providing CIS devices that offer the image quality of CDD sensors while still taking advantage of the power, integration and cost benefits traditionally associated with CMOS technology."

Kodak will open a new office at its Image Sensor Solutions organization in Sunnyvale, CA, to be staffed by 50 former National Semiconductor Corp. employees. The group will collaborate on CIS design and commercialization with the existing team located at Kodak's headquarters in Rochester, NY.
