Recent development in the technology of silicon sensors for astronomical applications.  Novel CCD and CMOS sensors have been designed for low noise and high sensitivity astronomical use.  High resistivity sensors allow thicker silicon for higher red sensitivity in several types of new CCD.  The capability to manufacture large sets of CCDs to form large focal planes has allowed several very large mosaics to be built for astronomy with increasing formats on the ground and in space.  In addition to supplying sensors we discuss increasing capacity and interest in the commercial supply of integrated "camera" systems.
