The EUROPRACTICE Service offers CAD tools to European academics for education, low cost and easy access to prototyping and small volume fabrication in ASIC, MEMS and photonics technologies. The service is offered by IMEC (B), STFC (UK) and Fraunhofer IIS (D). Low cost prototyping is achieved by offering fabrication through regularly scheduled MPW runs whereby many designs are merged onto the same fabrication run. These runs are fabricated in industrial CMOS, BiCMOS and SiGe processes from 0.7ยต to 22nm at well-known foundries (ONSemi, ams, XFAB, IHP, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, TSMC, UMC). Additionally more than Moore technologies are offered from Memscap, imec and Leti. A total integrated design and manufacturing flow is offered including cell library, design kit access and support, ASIC prototyping on MPW. Commercial companies and overseas institutes can use the fabrication services at different conditions, including dedicated single project prototype runs, volume fabrication, qualification, assembly and test.
