SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/26/14 -- eSilicon Corporation, a leading independent semiconductor design and manufacturing solutions provider, today announced the production release of its GDSII portal, which provides fast, automated quoting for TSMC technologies. Building on the successful introduction of its instant online quoting system for multi-project wafer (MPW) shuttle services, eSilicon's GDSII quoting portal offers the ability to fully specify the manufacturing process requirements for submission of a GDSII design to TSMC for volume manufacturing. Users specify tapeout requirements through a series of easy-to-use menus, along with requirements for packaging, testing and delivery. After specifications are entered, the system delivers an executable eSilicon quotation to the user's inbox in less than one minute. The GDSII quote includes non-recurring engineering (NRE) pricing and unit pricing for the system-on-chip (SoC) device.
The highly interactive GDSII portal gives users immediate feedback on their choices for design and manufacturing. This interactive experience aids in the exploration of process and design options, facilitating a design optimized for power, performance and area (PPA) as well as NRE and unit cost.
"We began changing the face of semiconductor commerce with the introduction of our MPW quoting portal," said Mike Gianfagna, eSilicon's VP of marketing. "Our new GDSII portal takes the process one step further. Users can now access both prototype and production quotations online. During our demonstrations at the recent Design Automation Conference, attendees were impressed with the speed of the system. We were able to complete quotes in less than 10 minutes, real time."
Users may request a GDSII quoting account on the eSilicon website. Access is free, and there is no obligation.
eSilicon, a leading independent semiconductor design and manufacturing solutions provider, delivers custom ICs and custom IP to OEMs, independent device manufacturers (IDMs), fabless semiconductor companies (FSCs) and wafer foundries through a fast, flexible, lower-risk, automated path to volume production. eSilicon serves a wide variety of markets including communications, computing, consumer, industrial and medical. www.esilicon.com.
