Alright that was a claim that I shouldn't have made. I am ignorant on how the crystal led is produced. lol ...all I know is that it is semiconductor based.
But to answer your question, if it is at all related, Sony is one of, if not the biggest player in CMOS sensors in the market, and that is semiconductor.
PS3 engine? You mean the cell processor? The PS3 is a money-making machine for Sony for a few years now. I don't understand why your calling unsuccessful commercially. The PS3 was loss-making initially, but that's part of the console business, they sell it at a loss in first couple of years until they are to produce it cheaply. But it was the blu-ray that contributed a lot to PS3 's manufacture price not the cell. The cell is a proof that Sony can produce semiconductors.
But I have no idea if it is at all related to how the crystal led is produced. lol. I would say not at all, it's completely different. The talk about the sensors and the cell is digressing from the topic, but I know I started it.
