Excerpt from article:-
Now the rumors about the next full-frame Nikon Dxx can start ...US semiconductor manufacturer Atmel has announced a 35 mm eight megapixel CCD sensor, although not specifically targeted at the digital camera market it's clearly an indication that the development of large high pixel count sensors is no longer the preserve of a select few manufacturers.
The specs of this new CCD states that its capable of 2.5fps (on DPReview) but the info PDF at Atmel's site states capability up to 10fps.
