OmniVision Technologies Inc., a supplier of semiconductor imaging devices for computing, communications and consumer electronics applications, has announced that it is proceeding with its plans to invest an additional $30 million in HuaWei Technology Int. Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary based in the Cayman Islands which owns HuaWei Semiconductor (Shanghai) Co. Ltd.

OmniVision established HuaWei Semiconductor in an effort to reduce costs associated with the testing of its CMOS image sensors which is currently done at its headquarters in California. According to Shaw Hong, president and CEO of OmniVision, apart from using HuaWei Semiconductor as a testing facility, the company hopes to expand the scope of the subsidiary's operations to include other processes associated with manufacturing its products, including color filter processing capacity.
