    CMOS sensors may be obsolete

    quantum dot phone cameras are available...OVTI's problem might be obsolesence not whether it's in the latest iphone

    • "augboy," because your heading is patently false, it indicates to me that you're extraordinarily ignorant and shouldn't be trying to educate anyone.

      Or more likely, you've shorted OVTI and need to cover, and so you're intentionally lying in order to scare investors into selling.

      I'm reposting here to ensure that your lies scare no one:

      “augboy” is trying to scare you into selling your OVTI stocks. Don't. He's saying that InVisage's quantum dots technology will make OVTI's technology obsolete. He's misinformed, or he's lying.

      First, quantum dots technology for mobile cameras was developed in order to improve the poor, grainy quality of photos taken by cell phones. OVTI has more than accomplished this with its own proprietary OmniBSI2 technology and its CameraCube technology. OmniBSI2 is the next generation of OmniVision’s industry-leading backside illumination technology that implements new design rules to enable a pixel roadmap into the sub-micron domain.

      Second, quantum dots will be another layer in the manufacturing of CMOSs and wafers. According to Invisage's website, InVisage's QuantumFilm will be placed above the silicon of CMOS's in order to improve quality (cf. links below).

      Third, InVisage developed its QuantumFilm with Taiwan Semiconductor, which co-owns OSC and VisEra with Omnivision Technologies. (I don't believe for a second that OVTI, which is the leader in camera technology, hasn't already developed its own version of quantum dots technology. According to the October 29, 2011, presentation, OVTI has several hundred patents pending, so OVTI has a bunch of new technology in its pipeline. It has three new products management will be talking about during the November 28 earnings webcast.)

      Here are two links from Invisage's website:

      Below is the link for an article about InVisage. The paragraph below is the last paragraph from the article.

      “InVisage, which has attracted more than $30 million in funding since it was founded in 2006, has partnered with Taiwan Semiconducttor Manufacturing Company to integrate the quantum dots into the silicon chip-making process. The company expects to sample their camera sensors in 10 months, and the first quantum dot cameras could be on the market by the end of 2011.”

    • Anything with quantum in its name reeks marketing propaganda... the technology may have it's merits but making a pretty presentation and actually selling a competitive product are two different things!

    • what is that?

    • Name one.
