Annually more than 550 ASICs are prototyped on Multi Project Wafer runs and more than 100 small volumes (~ 5 million components) are delivered to industry. The European Commission is funding the EUROPRACTICE service through a contract under the FP7 program. Through this funding European academia and research institutes are able to get access and support to CAD tools and ASIC prototyping at reduced costs.
