TA Associates adds CMOSIS to portfolio


Westview BostonPrivate equity firm TA Associates has bought CMOS image sensors supplier CMOSIS.

The company’s sensors are used in digital photography, digital cinema, aerospace & scientific, medical and biometrics.

TA noted that the image sensor market is expected to top $8bn by 2014, according to Yole Développement.

TA Associates managing director Ajit Nedungadi said, “CCD has traditionally been the dominant technology in the high-end image sensor market that CMOSIS serves.

“The migration to CMOS is being driven by a lower cost of manufacturing, lower power requirements, higher speeds and improved sensor resolution. This accelerating market shift should continue to prove favorable for CMOSIS.”
