Sony plans $475 mln boost to image sensor plant

TOKYO, Sept 1 (Reuters) - Sony Corp (6758.T) (SNE.N) said on Wednesday it would invest about 40 billion yen ($475 million) to boost production of image sensors at a plant in southern Japan.

The company expects further growth in demand for the sensors, used in digital cameras, including those embedded in mobile phones, it said in a news release.

The money is to be invested over the remainder of the current financial year and the following year, which ends in March 2012. (Editing by Joseph Radford)
