I think we are now seeing the benefits of the patent cross license agreement between Sony and Aptina last March. Aptina developed the Nikon 1 sensor that has fast on-sensor PDAF.

More than that link is needed to tell the story. There a lot of on-sensor PDAF patents out there, and the system used on the Nikon 1 could be patented by any number of companies. Nikon, Aptina, a 3rd party under license, etc.

Aptina made the sensors, very possibly under license from someone else.
