Grenoble, France – January 31, 2014 -- Dolphin Integration confirms the strengthening of their partnership with STMicroelectronics and the growth of their Custom Fabless activity by going to the next step in their offering of Multi-Project Wafer: myMPW+.
myMPW+ consists in a secured Multi-Project Wafer run yearly at STMicroelectronics in 65nmLP, tailor made for sensitive applications of customers seeking confidentiality and traceability for their circuits. It allows volume variability from a few tens up to a few thousand circuits at attractive prices.
myMPW+ gives the possibility to get a metal fix on the masks for improvements after the test of the first prototypes, as well as the capability to launch low to middle volume fabrication after a first prototype acceptance, by using the same masks for deliveries spread over a couple of years, complemented with full traceability and confidentiality all along a secured production chain, including even customer return management.
Dolphin Integration will aggregate on their own mask sets the different circuits coming from various customers seeking confidentiality and traceability, which will then be launched to fabrication. The different fabrication steps are handled and controlled by Dolphin Integration acting as Prime Contractor, within the business model for ASIC services proposed through mySoC (please browse through mysoc.dolphin.fr). Once the wafers are out of foundry, special care is taken during the assembly phase, so that unused devices are stored or destroyed by Dolphin Integration. Depending on specific customer needs, the process may be stopped after receiving the prototypes, or when needing a metal fix or new engineering samples for validation purposes, or the process may be extended with a low volume fabrication, once the prototypes are validated at the system level.
