Digitimes: Taiwan packaging and testing houses King Yuan Electronics (KYEC) and Tong Hsing Electronic Industries reportedly have landed new orders for CMOS sensors from OmniVision, with shipments slated to kick off in Q3 2012, according to newspaper's sources.
KYEC and Tong Hsing both said they do not comment on customer status and orders.
OmniVision is believed to have secured orders for Apple's next-generation iPhone and iPad series. KYEC and Tong Hsing previously cut into the supply chain for Apple's iPhone 4S through supplying services to OmniVision, Digitimes' sources report (probably for VGA front camera). Also, OmniVision's wafer starts at TSMC for the second quarter are expected to jump significantly from the prior quarter's levels, the sources pointed out.
