Rocky, as you clearly have more understanding in this area, would appreciate a little more info/understanding....

If moving from 8" to 12" is not much additional cost but you end up with twice as much sensor, does it follow that you can similarly continue to scale the wafer size to benefit?

Secondly, did not quite get the maths on 2.63x larger, therefore 5-7x more expensive?

Thirdly, electronic shrinkage, is it not the case that all that happens is we get more for the same price - more transistors etc, of course coupled with better use of those transitors? Did not think in the case of CPUs they were getting smaller, just more on them - which is akin to CMOS sensors advancement?

Finally (almost there ) but is cost reduction of TV panels again just a maturity of the technology / manufacturing process?

Sorry so many questions - just like to learn
