  • OmniVision Acquires CDM Optics

Photonics Spectra
Jul 2005
OmniVision Technologies Inc. of Sunnyvale, Calif., has acquired the privately held CDM Optics Inc. for $10 million in cash and approximately 515,000 shares of OmniVision common stock. Now a wholly owned subsidiary, CDM will remain at its site in Boulder, Colo. It is the exclusive licensee of the Wavefront Coding technology, which increases an imaging system's depth of field and corrects optical aberrations within an image.

In optics, an image is the reconstruction of light rays from a source or object when light from that source or object is passed through a system of optics and onto an image forming plane. Light rays passing through an optical system tend to either converge (real image) or diverge (virtual image) to a plane (also called the image plane) in which a visual reproduction of the object is formed. This reconstructed pictorial representation of the object is called an image.
