MOSIS MPW Sponsorship Through Intel Custom Foundry

January 13th, 2019

The MOSIS Service, is collaborating with Intel Corporation to provide access to 22nm FinFET Low-power (22FFL) process technology for the microelectronics design community through the Intel Custom Foundry. To encourage participation in the MOSIS Service offerings of Intel’s multi-project wafer (MPW) fabrication runs, the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering (OUSD(R&E)) Trusted and Assured Microelectronics (T&AM) Program aims to potentially sponsor MPW runs in government fiscal year (GFY)-2020 and GFY-2021. Projects aligning with the R&E Microelectronics Roadmap’s need for access to State-Of-The-Art (SOTA) technology will be considered for subsidized fabrication if those designs and/or design efforts are complementary to the T&AM objectives of enhancing the U.S. microelectronics development capability...read more
