OmniVision, Sony to supply next-gen iPhone cameras

Both OmniVision and Sony will supply Apple with eight-megapixel camera sensors for the next-generation iPhone, according to a new report. Citing market sources, DigiTimes reports that OmniVision will supply roughly 90 percent of the sensor orders, with Sony supplying the remainder.

The report also states that Avago Technologies has landed orders for next-gen iPhone power amplifiers (PAs). Avago previously provided PAs for the CDMA version of the iPhone, but will now supply three of the five PAs used in the next WDCMA version of the device, with the remaining two coming from long-time supplier TriQuint Semiconductor.
