Globalfoundries Design Rules and Cell Libraries

GF's design rules, SPICE parameters, Cadence design kit, and Agilent ADS models are available from MOSIS. ADS support for GF is RFDE/Dynamic-Link, and can only be used together with the GF Cadence design environment. SPICE parameters may be used as design references, but no quantity derived from a simulation should be treated as a manufacturing tolerance. GF considers these items to be proprietary and only authorizes MOSIS to distribute them to customers who have established MOSIS commercial accounts and who have signed the MOSIS Customer Agreement, which includes the following terms in Section 6C:

EACH PARTY SPECIFICALLY AGREES THAT IT SHALL NOT DISCLOSE ANY MATERIAL WHICH MAY BE CONSIDERED PROPRIETARY OR CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OF THE OTHER PARTY OR OF ANY VENDORS TO ANY THIRD PARTIES. PROPRIETARY MATERIAL SHALL INCLUDE BUT SHALL NOT BE LIMITED TO, PROPRIETARY VENDOR INFORMATION SUCH AS YIELD AND PARAMETRIC DATA, WHETHER IT WAS PROVIDED TO CUSTOMERS OR EXTRACTED BY THEM. EACH PARTY AGREES THAT IT SHALL BE PRECLUDED BY 18 U.S.C. 1905 AND ANY AND ALL OTHER APPROPRIATE LAWS AND REGULATIONS FROM KNOWINGLY DIVULGING THE TRADE SECRETS OF THE OTHER PARTY, AND/OR ANY THIRD-PARTY VENDOR.

Procedures

  1. To obtain any of these items you must have an account with MOSIS. To open or re-activate a commercial account with MOSIS, complete and send the Commercial Account Application along with all appropriate signed agreements. Please read the instructions carefully before submitting the application package.
  2. To apply for document access, submit the Vendor Document Access Request form.

Special instructions for academic institutions

Academic institutions must also complete the Account Liaison NDA and Student/Staff List NDA in addition to the Request Form, the DKLA, and the CDA.

Each year, All Academic accounts will need a new NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement). You must maintain the list of faculty, staff, and students who will collaborate with you using your MOSIS account.

This process can be done online in Account Management under the Academic Account Registration / Renewal.


Cell Libraries

ARM offers digital standard cell libraries, I/Os (pads), and memory generators to commercial firms for a variety of processes.

For academic and research organizations, please contact the ARM University Program

For both commercial and non-commercial users, access to ARM IP is available via ARM Design Start.

Limited digital libraries from GF are available for the 6RF, 7WL, 8HP, and 8WL processes via the MOSIS secure document server, after design kit access has been granted.
