We can only dream for now.

Sorry but there is no know activity that we know of. Sigma is running seriously thin in the margin department building the Foveon only for its own cameras that sell in small volumes. Also the sensor is difficult to manufacture using multiple epitaxial layers to create the vertical color array.

The CEO Yamaki-sam has publicly stated it as their dream to build the sensor as a full frame. It would be a world beater considering the resolution the SD1 can generate. With 2.25X the surface area no current FF sensor could begin to touch it.
