what is mosis
What is MOSIS ?
  • An organization dedicated to offering:
    • High-quality access to the latest production-provensemiconductor technologies.
    • Low-cost engineering samples of IC designs.
    • Small-volume production services.
    • Single-point of interface for additional services or products offered by partners.
    • Support for questions on design rules, SPICE models and design kits.
what does mosis do
What does MOSIS do?
  • Multi-Project Wafer (MPW) Runs.
  • Dedicated (DED) Runs.
    • 1/3 of the 100+ runs per year are Dedicated Runs.
  • Taxi-Runs (for IBM only).
    • Mid-way between a DED and a MPW run.
who uses the mosis service
Who Uses the MOSIS Service?
  • Companies with pilot-projects that require engineering samples for proof-of-concept.
  • Organizations with small-volume production.
    • Industrial firms.
    • Governmental agencies.
    • Academic institutions.
mosis chronology
MOSIS – Chronology
  • Phase I : 1981-1985
    • DARPA direct funded era: 100% DARPA.
  • Phase II : 1985-1994
    • Multi-agency direct funding
    • DARPA : ~80% +DoD, NSF : ~15% (1985).
    • Commercial customers: ~5% (1985).
  • Phase III : 1994-present
    • Self-sustaining operations.
    • Commercial customers provide 100% of income.
why customers come to mosis
Why Customers Come to MOSIS?
  • Quality and low cost + fast turn-around time.
  • Access to leading technologies.
    • Multiple processes - multiproject, dedicated runs.
  • Die size, quantity flexibility.
    • Examples: 2 x 2, 3 x 6, 7 x 6 mm; 40, 500, 2000 parts (die and/or packaged).
  • Design rules, spice parameters.
  • Technology files, design kits.
    • Includes standard cells, pads, others.
mosis capabilities 1 2
MOSIS Capabilities (1/2)
  • Organizes Multiproject, Dedicated, and Taxi runs.
    • Gathers designs, handles purchase orders, etc.
  • Supports users.
    • Performs design-kit distribution.
    • Handles questions.
      • Design rules, modeling, etc.
    • Mpw runs include functional reference designs.
    • Works closely with design service providers.
mosis capabilities 2 2
MOSIS Capabilities (2/2)
  • Orders masks, wafers.
    • Fully-checked, -merged reticle compatible with production fabrication process.
  • Performs packaging/test.
    • Plastic, ceramic, flip-chip, etc.
    • Functional testingavailable.
  • Allows for die size, quantity flexibility.
    • Die cut into desired size, provides larger quantities (e.g. 500, 2000) within runs (for MPW, Dedicated and Taxi).

summary
Summary
  • High-quality, low-cost, fast prototyping.
  • Regularly scheduled prototype runs + dedicated runs based on customer’s schedule needs.
  • Low volume production.
  • Access to latest production technologies.
  • Access to important 3rd-party resources for design tools and packaging.
  • Reference designs on MPW runs.
  • Acting as the interface, MOSIS greatly increases chances for first-pass success.
