OmniVision Acquires Visera Wafer-Level Lens Manufacturing

PR Newswire: Omnivision acquires from VisEra its wafer-level lens production operations. OmniVision currently outsources the wafer-level lens production and assembly processes associated with its CameraCube technology to VisEra. The cash consideration for the operations is $45M. As Visera is jointly owned by Omnivision and TSMC now, it looks like Omnivision is going to buy the TSMC part.

"This transaction will enable us to further streamline the production process, consolidate the supply chain, expand production capacity, and reduce the cost to meet customers' growing demand for our CameraCube products," said Shaw Hong, Omnivision's CEO.

OmniVision anticipates that the parties will close the transaction in the second quarter of its fiscal year 2012.

  1. Can anyone assist me in getting an Analog design interview with omnivision here in the US?? This would be a dream come true for me to get a shot at woring for this company.

  2. My guess is that OV wants to run parts from other fabs through Viscera and doesn't want TSMC involved.

  3. My guess would be that OVT wants to block VisEra from providing the wafer level lens technology to others...

  4. The company has an "Analog Design Engineer" listing at the Open Positions page with a link that lets you apply directly.

    Incidentally, draft your approach carefully. You definitely don't want to inquire about "woring" there.

  7. The irony is that "woring" is a real place in Afghanistan. Sorry for deviating from the topic, but I could not resist!
