IBM 7RF CMOS Process
180 Nanometer (180 nm)
Information vital to preparing and submitting a design for fabrication in this process has been posted to the MOSIS MOSIS Secure Document Server.
All users must read the checking procedures and density requirements described in this document.
If your design will be used for production, i.e. non-MPW, please read the IBM policy described in "Checking and Error Disposition Strategy for IBM Designs."
MOSIS is offering access to the IBM 0.18 micron CMOS 7RF technology for prototype and low volume fabrication. Leadfree C4 (IBM's flip chip bumping) is subject to availability at additional cost. Advance notice required. Please submit your inquiry through the MOSIS Secure Document Server.
This CMOS process has 6 metal layers (M1, M2, M3, M4, MT, AM) with DV (wirebound glass cut) and supports QT+HT Dual Nitride MiM capacitors. Supply voltages are 1.8 V core and 5 V I/O.
Please refer to the List of 7RF Supported Options page for the options available on MOSIS MPW runs in this technology. You may not submit a design containing any options or metals stack which are not listed here without prior arrangement with MOSIS.
Other configurations are available for dedicated runs or on MPW runs at an additional cost. Contact MOSIS Support. for details. While the process is capable of up to 8 metal layers, we offer 6 on multi-project wafer runs.
To ensure that submitted data is on a 10 nm grid, please stream-out
at 1 DBU = 10 nm (Cadence 0.010, not 0.001).
MOSIS does not fill for IBM processes. Designs for IBM runs must meet the IBM fill requirements when submitted.
IBM has sub-licensed MOSIS to distribute this information to customers who have signed both the MOSIS customer agreement and the IBM Design Kit License Agreement.
