Apple acquires Israeli camera company LinX Imaging

(JNS.org) The American computer giant Apple has acquired LinX Imaging, an Israeli company that produces tiny camera modules for telephones and tablet devices. The Wall Street Journal quoted sources close to the deal who said that Apple paid $20 million for the Israeli firm. LinX creates cameras that are smaller than any on the market today and can photograph multiple objects at once. Moreover, LinX technology lets users create 3D images and refocus an image after the picture has been taken, providing 3D object modeling and real-time background replacement, a feature that can be used in video calls. LinX Imaging is the third Israeli company Apple has acquired. The company bought Anobit, a flash memory developer, in 2012 for $390 million, and PrimeSense, which develops movement sensors, for $300 million in 2013. Apple CEO Tim Cook visited Israel in February for the inauguration of Apple’s Herzliya offices.
