ON Semiconductor has announced last order acceptance for its CCD sensors and will subsequently cease production and close its plant in Rochester USA.
According to ON Semiconductor the sales of their CCD image sensors has declined to a level which can no longer be sustained due to the ongoing market conversion from CCD to CMOS image sensors. The discontinuation affects all CCD image sensors from ON Semiconductor. The last-time buy order acceptance for CCD image sensors is March 18, 2020. The last-time supply is September 18, 2020.
