eSilicon's Online Multi-Project Wafer Quote System Now Supports Standard and Custom Packaging Services

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Feb 06, 2014 -- eSilicon Corporation, the largest independent semiconductor design and manufacturing services provider, today announced the addition of package services to its automated, instant online quote system for multi-project wafer (MPW) shuttles. The service, accessed through user-friendly web or smartphone interfaces, instantly generates executable MPW quotes. Typically it can take up to a week to get a quote using the traditional manual process.

eSilicon's online MPW quote system allows users to quickly evaluate the cost of multiple options, including standard and custom package services. MPW package options available online include:

Wirebond Leadframe
QFN 4mm x 4mm - 12mm x 12mm
QFP 10mm x 10mm - 14mm x 14mm

Wirebond BGA
TFBGA 4mm x 4mm - 18mm x 18mm
PBGA 17mm x 17mm - 35mm x 35mm

Flip Chip BGA:
FCBGA 12mm x 12mm - 35mm x 35mm

Canova Tech, a leading semiconductor company offering analog/mixed-signal IP solutions and design services for consumer, industrial and medical markets, is an early adopter of the new MPW package services.

"The online MPW tool is easy to use and we received our quote very quickly. Short feedback cycles are particularly important during the early decision-making phase as we iterate a design," said Andrea Colognese, Canova Tech's business development manager. "Receiving samples packaged by a quality supply chain will save a lot of effort and allow us to minimize risk and demonstrate results in a shorter timeframe. We are developing a solution for the new USB Power Delivery standard and our customers would like to see samples as quickly as possible. The automated MPW tool streamlined the process for us."

"eSilicon is changing the way people work. Our online MPW quote tool democratizes the ASIC design process so our customers -- no matter how large or small -- have easy access to multi-project wafer shuttles to prove their designs," said Mike Gianfagna, eSilicon's VP, marketing. "Our approach allows for more informed development of new technologies -- customers can instantly see cost tradeoffs for various alternatives."

MPWs reduce prototype cost by up to 90 percent versus a full production mask by grouping multiple IC designs on one mask set and sharing mask costs among multiple program participants. MPWs are typically used for product prototyping, IP verification, device characterization, and low-volume requirements.

eSilicon's online MPW services are available for most nodes from TSMC at 20nm-350nm and most nodes from GLOBALFOUNDRIES at 20nm-180nm.

To access the automated MPW quoting system, eSilicon customers can simply log in to their eSilicon Access® account, online or via smartphone, and go to the "Quoting" tab. Those who do not have an eSilicon Access account can request an account on the eSilicon website. Registration is free.
