Z9 SENSOR (likely by Tower Semiconductor) II

Apparently, the original thread topic has reached its limit as to the number of posts it will allow.

I think everyone will agree, thanks to bobn2, all of us now have greater insight into sensor productivity. In fact, one poster said, roughly, "I have learned more about sensors and sensor tech, from this one thread, than from several years' research online."

Anyway, for me, the takeaway was Nikon always develops its own sensors, at the very top of its class. They may "purchase sensors" from vendors on their lower end models, but they always design their own at the very top.

Two of the companies Nikon used in the past (Aptina, Renesas) have been purchased by Sony. Nikon completed its contract agreements with these companies, and is now most likely going to TowerJazz (Semiconductor) for its Z9 sensor, for reasons described in detail by way of bobn2's dissection of my original post.

For those interested, they can continue this discussion here.
