Micron to produce iPhone camera sensors?

updated 09:35 am EST, Mon March 5, 2007

iPhone camera report

The two-megapixel sensor in the iPhone will be manufactured by Micron Technology in Italy, reports setteB.IT. The two-megapixel, 30 fps (frame per second) device, which is about a quarter of an inch across the diagonal, is about $11 per sensor, according to prior estimates by iSuppli; however, the report says that the cost price to Micron is in the range of $5-$7 per device component. Those same sources claim Micron's semiconductor fabrication plant in Avezzano is the sole source of the sensor for Apple's iPhone and that Apple has placed initial orders for between 2,000 and 3,000 wafers per week--for a theoretical yield of 600,000 sensors per week (the nature of semiconductor fabrication yields, however, will result in lower numbers of working sensors)
