    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at OmniVision Technologies (Santa Clara, CA).


    Had a phone interview first describing your background and answering several technical questions, then followed by an onsite interview lasted for 4-5 hours with 8-10 people. The experience was good and they are looking for someone with solid analog and VLSI design background.

  • Happy holidays!

    OmniVision is proud to partner with Family Giving Tree (, a charitable organization dedicated to inspiring underserved children and individuals throughout the Bay Area.

    One in four children lives in poverty in the Silicon Valley. These children don't expect to receive anything during the holiday season, but we are doing our best to change that. Our employees’ donations will make a difference this season for 80,000 Bay Area children and individuals.

    Please consider joining us by making a voluntary donation today! For over 27 years, the Family Giving Tree has fulfilled more than 1.3 million specific holiday wishes and is looking to OVT to continue their work. This year, Family Giving Tree has set a goal to fulfill the holiday wishes of 80,000 local children.

    Near infrared imaging: Process improvements boost NIR quantum efficiency

    Capturing images at very low light levels is critical for many medical, scientific, military and security imaging applications. Doing so requires image sensors that exhibit a high quantum efficiency (QE), a low read out noise and dark current, as well as a wide dynamic range that allows high spatial resolution imaging across a range of illumination conditions.
