Sigma, as you may know, wants to develop a new full frame 1:1:1 Foveon sensor for a photo-centric camera along the tradition of the SD9 to SD1. But they faced severe technical problems and re-started the project.

I think this is the answer to your question, plain and simple.

Yes I heard that news when it came out. And that is what it was plain and simple. I would like to know exactly what the difficulty was. Processing speeds..sensor itself.

Nobody here knows the answer to that question. There are educated guesses. I assume that the necessary stitching for full frame sensors is not so easy for the three layer Foveon. Or maybe something completely different.
