ON Semi-Rochester Stops Making CCDs

ON Semi announces that it discontinues all its CCD products (also here.) The rumor says that the last reminder about Kodak image sensor business, the Rochester, NY, CCD fab will be closed on June 20, 2020 (confirmed from 3 independent sources.)

"The ongoing market conversion from CCD to CMOS image sensors has been accelerated both by an industry slowdown that began in 2018 as well as availability of advanced CMOS image sensors such as ON Semiconductor’s line of XGS products. In light of these factors, ON Semiconductor has been monitoring the sales activity and viability of our CCD image sensor products. The recent activity for the products on the attached device list has declined to a level which can no longer be sustained. As a result of this analysis we regret to announce discontinuance of our CCD products as described in this notification.

All CCD products are impacted by this change. The list of OPNs provided with this notification includes suggested replacement parts (where it was possible to identify a suitable replacement). In many cases, a call to ON Semiconductor Sales may be appropriate to discuss XGS CMOS image sensors in detail. For those devices that have no recommended replacement identified, ON Semiconductor has partnered with Rochester Electronics who will carry any remaining device inventory to potentially allow for a continued source after ON Semiconductor has completed its business process.

PLEASE NOTE: ON Semiconductor may implement minimum order quantities or dollar amounts based on inventories available. Also, Devices on this Product Discontinuance become NCNR (Non-Cancelable, Non-Returnable).
