We provide industry and academia with a platform to develop smart integrated systems

EUROPRACTICE offers affordable and easy access to ASIC, Multi-Chip Module and Microsystems solutions. We make chip design and manufacturing more accessible by providing reduced entry costs, initial advice and ongoing support.


Who we are

EUROPRACTICE is a consortium of five renowned European research organizations, who support academic institutions and medium-sized companies with IC prototyping services, system integration solutions, training activities and possibilities for small volume production. In addition, we provide universities and research institutes with access to CAD tools.

How we work

EUROPRACTICE works with five main stages and it is up to you to decide at which stage you join or leave.

1. Contact us

Stage 1.
Contact us.

To start working with EUROPRACTICE IC, you can contact a person responsible for the technology you are interested in. Detailed technology specifications can be found in the MPW Prototyping section of this website. If you have not yet made the choice, you can always address your questions to one of our “General Information” contacts.

2. Select & access

Stage 2.
Select and access your technology.

Each foundry offers a particular set of technologies, which means that the technology you select defines the foundry, the design kit and the cell libraries you are going to work with. You get access to them by signing the appropriate NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) or DKLA (Design Kit License Agreement). If you are also interested in Design Tools, visit the website of our EUROPRACTICE partner STFC.

3. Develop & register

Stage 3.
Develop and register your design.

EUROPRACTICE IC provides a wide range of design and support services, which is meant to help you achieve a first-time right device. Once your design process is finished, you can submit your results by filling in the design registration form and reserving a spot in a corresponding run schedule.

4. Fabricate & package

Stage 4.
Have the prototypes fabricated and packaged.

When you have completed your design, it goes through a thorough verification process. After the check is done, the prototypes are fabricated by one of the foundries and packaged if required. You are welcome to explore our packaging and system integration options.

5. Scale up

Stage 5.
Scale up to volume production.

After a successful prototyping phase, you may choose to scale up to low or mid-high volume production. In this case, EUROPRACTICE IC will provide you access to full production and qualification stage, including the necessary test services.
