Here's some info on Kodak's 5.6Mp and 16Mp CCDs. There's also data for some technically challenged folks to read up on, especially the ones on their evaluation boards:

Interesting that the most recent item listed under "News" at the Foveon site is dated February 11, 2002

well i guess thats all they have. in life it can go either way.

i would probably guess that the marketing department budget is slightly smaller than nikon or kodak. and in the current economic enviornment there are possible issues. burn rate, financing and more. we can only watch from the sidelines.
