A common thread unites MOSIS customers. They're all IC design innovators. But their business success depends on finding affordable fabrication options for their inventive ICs, as well as a faster route to market. No small challenge given today's feature-rich designs and associated production complexities, not to mention tighter market windows.
Some are leading intrapreneurial initiatives within large global semiconductor companies. Their priority is to benchmark device performance and value before committing major corporate funds. Others come from fabless companies where precious staffing and financial resources are focused on high-value design work. For them, the imperative is turning designs into devices at the lowest possible cost.
MOSIS customers can also be found in the research labs at some of the world's top academic institutions, as well as large government contractors.
