    HOTT Teardown Cisco's Flip UltraHD Camcorder

    Micron 1/4.5 inch HD CMOS MT9M002 with 12-bit on-chip ADC that was announced in March 2009

    Zoran COACH 10 DSP

    Samsung 904 KMCMG0000M-B998 8-Gbyte NAND flash supported by the Samsung K9F5608U0D-J1B0 256 Mbit SLC NAND flash in a 9x11-mm FBGA package.

    All told, and putting business issues aside, the Flip UltraHD is another excellent, easy-to-use digital camera that makes taking high-def video a snap. The insides are proven technology and the simplicity of design and user-interface improvements (such as more tactile and responsive buttons) make it clear the company is listening to its customers' feedback. An ode to even cleaner design.;jsessionid=L2R4JGKOW3QSGQSNDLRSKH0CJUNN2JVN?articleID=218400223

        right now mu still owns aptina and even after the close it will still own 35%.

        aptina's not going away.

        you saw that chart today where it shows how much of the smart phone biz aptina's projected to get.

        it seems that ovt is just number 1 for number of cheap vga units sold.

        I think they do. I'm not sure of the closing date, I know in March it was Micron.

        Micron 1/4.5 inch HD CMOS MT9M002 with 12-bit on-chip ADC that was announced in March 2009

        Boise, Idaho and San Jose, CA, June 1, 2009 —

        Micron Technology, Inc. (NYSE: MU) today announced that it has signed an agreement to sell a majority interest in its imaging solutions business, Aptina Imaging Corporation, to Riverwood Capital and TPG Capital. As part of the agreement, Micron will retain a 35 percent minority stake in the independent, privately held company. Riverwood and TPG will also contribute significant primary capital to Aptina’s balance sheet, and Micron will continue to manufacture products and provide services for Aptina at its worldwide facilities.

        Who cares who owns it unless you live in freakin idiot village and think that Omnivision wins something by a change in ownership of a competitor. If that was true OVTI market share would not be falling having lost ALL TIER ONE OEM's and selling 80% of its parts as sub $1 vga parts to China.

        Aptina is winnig as many sockets as ever. This HD chip in the Flip is a nice addition to its wins.

        BTW: you do know Aptina is still in Apple iPhone 3g and macbooks right? So tell me what have they lost except a price war with Omnivision and STM for a price driven ccommodity sensor. I would not be surprised if iPhone comes with a Donbu/Seti 3mp next when the lowest bid is the primary consideration from Apple.
        Aptina must have known there was bidding competition when Apple presented it order specs and might very well have passed on going any lower than Hongs desperate bid to unload some of it's 270 day inventory.
