Seeking Alpha published Omnivision earnings call transcript. An interesting quote:

Hans Mosesmann - Raymond James:

Can you confirm that the BSI-2 yields are where you need them to be and if not how long will that take for us to see that?

Shaw Hong - CEO:

I think we are very comfortable with what we have done to date in terms of coming up with improvements on the production yield ...the yield should not be much of a concern for any one, but I do want to point out is that if in case you want to take this comment to project our next year's performance, likely we will be introducing new SKUs with the producing different parts by then. So essentially, our operation team we have to go through another cycle of yield improvement process.
