The business that Panasonic spun off and merged with Fujitsu's is "system large-scale integration chip-design and -development ".  I'm not sure whether that includes image sensors, though image sensors are a type of integrated circuit.  A little more sure it probably includes the image processors.

For example, not sure, but I believe Olympus uses Sony image sensors in the newer Pen and OM-D, but may have still used a Panasonic chip for the processor?  I could be wrong, can't find where I saw that, may have been speculation.  But I do know that Nikon in the D5200 used a Toshiba image sensor, but a Fujitsu processor.
