Sensor Size

Hope I've put this in the correct place.....

The K20D's CMOS sensor is 23.4mm X 15.6mm, I believe. Can someone tell me the size of a APSC sensor? Reading the specs for some Sigma lenses has prompted this question.

Wikipedia sez APS-C is 25.1 16.7 mm.
The term originally was for one aspect size of the APS-C film format.
The digital version is slightly smaller.
