Foundry Access – General

Each EUROPRACTICE partner is responsible for granting access to a particular set of technologies and foundries. To start an application procedure, customers can select a technologythey are interested in and contact the partner responsible for it.

 

Here are quick links to the access information to particular foundries together with the necessary NDAs (Non-Disclosure Agreements), DKLAs (Design Kit License Agreements) and contact details:

Further steps are different for two groups of clients:

 

1. Full EUROPRACTICE Members

2. Other Customers

 

Full EUROPRACTICE members

  • Only Academic and Research Institutions from the list of eligible countries can become full EUROPRACTICE members.
  • They can register on the website of our partner STFC and pay the Full-IC annual membership fee of 1 100 EURO.
  • After the fee has been fully paid, our customers receive a membership ID. It allows to purchase CAD tools via STFC and access Multi Project Wafer (MPW) fabrication services provided by EUROPRACTICE-IC.
  • To obtain access to the technologies of a particular foundry, full members need to sign the appropriate NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) or DKLA (Design Kit License Agreement) and send them to the partner responsible for the foundry in question.
  • When the EUROPRACTICE partner receives the signed documents, the necessary Design Kit, which includes design rules, electrical parameters and cell libraries, will become available for the client.
