Example text

They’re really nice people; they’re just way too busy. In fact, MOSIS is only a few miles from my home, and despite my expressed interest in visiting, I really doubt anyone gets invited. The Europractice group is a bit different. The interface can be more personal, and project coordination can be done over the phone and by e-mail in many cases. The AMI processes they offer are from a fab in Europe that AMI acquired, so they are a bit different from the AMI processes that MOSIS offers. Europractice offers Austria Microsystems processes, as does MOSIS.

Although your design tools will be able to check such rules as you design, often the rules you use will be a simplified set that checks most rules but not all. A complete, final DRC check, done by the foundry on their EDA tools with their “golden rule set,” is advised and can cost from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand, depending on design size and number of iterations.

The cost of this initial work can run from $2000 to $10,000, or more, depending on test complexity. The production cost of testing depends on the expense of the tester your chip is assigned to and the time it takes for each test operation. Tests can cost from about 3 to 10 cents a second, which can be a sizable percentage of overall part cost, if the test routines are not carefully considered. Neglecting the cost of prototyping, where most tests are done by yourself in a setup that resembles the part’s application environment, and neglecting the cost of prototype packaging, which can be very expensive, we can put together some rough estimates of final part cost based on setup and production costs, die size (which affects yield), process, and production run volume.
