Apple expands image sensor research in Grenoble

July 26, 2016 // By Peter Clarke
Apple plans to install a team of twenty researchers in cleanroom building in Grenoble to develop image sensor technology from STMicroelectronics according to a report in ledauphine.com.

The report appears to confirm rumors from 2014 (see Is Apple preparing to design image sensors in Grenoble? ) and that work has been going on jointly between Apple and STMicroelectronics at the Minatec campus in Grenoble.

The report in ledauphine states that a lease has been signed between Apple and the city authorities of Grenoble allowing a cleanroom to built in the Cemoi building at 12, Rue Ampere.

The laboratory and cleanroom will occupy 800 square meters, reports said.
