Online Multi-Project Wafer (MPW) Quotes

Online quoting is also available for multi-project wafer shuttle services. If you are at an earlier stage in your design and you are interested in prototyping or low-volume manufacturing, an MPW may be the right path for you. MPWs reduce prototype cost by up to 90 percent versus a full production mask by grouping multiple IC designs on one mask set. The mask costs are shared by multiple program participants. Our online MPW quoting tool supports seven foundries.
