Is Your Multi-Project Wafer Project Smaller Than the Fab Minimum Area?
Share the minimum area with other MPW customers to save mask costs
With the cost of mask sets going up with every node, even a multi-project wafer (MPW) can break your NRE budget, particularly if you plan to run multiple test spins. At 28nm, a 6mm2 area tile can cost over $100,000.
One solution is to share the minimum tile area with someone else who is using the same technology and metal stack that you are targeting. We periodically get these kinds of requests from customers. Please contact directly firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like eSilicon to list your own MPW shuttle sharing opportunity, or if you would like eSilicon to contact you when future MPW tile sharing opportunities are available.
Following are upcoming opportunities to share a multi-project wafer (MPW) tapeout with another eSilicon customer. If you are interested, just email eSilicon.
