If the design shows a flaw, the project may be set back a bit, but the cost for the test will be limited. The turnaround time for an MLM run is usually shorter than that of the MPW run, as only a single customer is involved. MPW prototypes can be obtained through the fabs directly, or through one of two prototyping services: MOSIS in the United States and Europractice in Europe.

Such small gate counts can be handled by field programmable gate arrays (FPGA), but in a custom chip, analog functions that gather other system needs into the device can be included. This is where custom IC development really shines, up to the 20K gate range, with memories (only what you need) and analog functions on chip. 6 μ affords (5 V) makes the analog functions easy and convenient. 6 μ, mixed signal, <10K gate area is where the really novel, low-production rate designs live. Logic circuits without analog stuff on-chip can only be justified when you’ ve got a really good application that can be used in very high volume; FPGAs can likely be used instead, and you don’t have to go through all of that messy learning about IC design.

FABS AND PROCESSES Keith Barr 40 characteristics of each device (resistors and capacitors) before you begin any design. Get to know the parts first. Finally, you must recognize that no fab today believes they can make money by doing business with small-scale customers. I suggest you take as little of their time as possible asking simple questions, for this will only reinforce their assumptions about you being a waste of their time.
