Gh2 sensor, Panasonic MN34070, uses column-parallel ADC

I have just found confirmation that the sensor in the Panasonic GH2 uses column-parallel ADC, as in recent Sony/Nikon/Pentax sensors, unlike Canon sensors or those in most other m4/3 cameras.

Chipworks identified he sensor as the Panasonic MN34070

http://www.chipworks.com/en/technical-competitive-analysis/resources/recent-teardowns/2011/01/teardown-of-the-panasonic-lumix-gh2/

and now Panasonic has described this sensor and its colmn-parallel ADC in this 2012 document:

This does not help with the mystery of the E-M5 sensor though!
