A Multi Project Wafer (MPW) is a cost effective way to experience a new design topology or test the potential of a new technology, such as GaN/Si, through a limited number of samples. We have been offering foundry runs where multiple customers share space on a single wafer for a long time though our proprietary technologies. This service comes with several conditions of use.
Because we use mechanical saw to dice the wafers, the cutting path of all designs must remain compatible. This is why, the size of the circuit must correspond to one of the fixed patterns for a MPW. Four options are available and come with a certain number of dies. These options are described in the following figure.
For special request, other die size can sometime be used. If needed, please contact us.
Each MMICs manufactured in MPW way are not tested, they only pass a visual inspection.
MPW runs are generally available once per quarter (depending on the process used). Schedule dates are regularly update in the table below. Should you plan to use our MPW services, please let us know as soon as possible. Order shall pass at least one month prior the announced date.

MPW comes with discounts for universities. We are comitted to providing educational establishments with access to our technologies.
