Sensor / zoom limitations

I'm interesting in learning more about sensors, especially as related to the smaller all-in-one cameras, either the usual P&S or the larger bridge cameras.  If I understand correctly, putting a longer zoom on these smaller cameras AND keeping the cameras fairly small requires a smaller sensor.  The biggest I've seen is generally a 1" sensor paired with some of the cameras that go from 24 or 28 to 400 or 600 or so.
