The EUROPRACTICE partner CMP distributes Design-Kits (DKs) of STMicroelectronics technologies, containing principally standard cell libraries, models for specific software tools and design rules:
DKs are delivered after signature of a NDA/CLA and on condition that the designs are submitted to CMP for fabrication. Users are informed by CMP when a new DK release is issued, they can update their version.
CMP supports the customers through a CMP DK Support center interface.
More details in each technology can be found in the CMP Process Catalog.
To start off with the NDA request and design submission procedure, create an account on myCMP
The registration must be done by the Technical Manager.
After Registration, all functionalities are available with your account. myCMP is a new online application which centralizes all the administrative (NDA, CLA, DKLA, etc.) and technical steps (reservations, orders, layout submission, DRC reports, etc).
It also allows you direct communication and real time follow up of your project.
Sign two original copies (mandatory) and return to:

Tutorials and DK documentation
Several documents, datasheets and user’s guides exist inside the design platforms. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have difficulties in finding a particular technical information.
The Design Rule Manual (DRM) is specific for each technology and confidential. Your institution receives the necessary information to access this document once a valid NDA/CLA is signed.
Different tutorials have also been developed by CMP, concerning for instance: Monte-Carlo simulations, LVS bbox methodology, parasitic extraction flows etc. Design-kit users can check our CMP website to have a list of accessible tutorials. They are available on request, and after eventual updates, depending on the technology and DK version used by the designers.
All these materials are useful for starting using the design-kits, showing the different design-flow steps and the correct use of tech-files and libraries. The DRM will allow designers to properly implement their circuit(s).
