LFoundry Announces Partnership with EUROPRACTICE IC Service
Press releasse of cluster member LFoundry
Analog technology Multi-Project Wafer (MPW) platform for European companies and
academic establishments to facilitate prototyping and small volume production. The
EUROPRACTICE IC Service MPW center will be Fraunhofer IIS.
LFoundry’s initial offering will be the LF150 modular 0.15 ?m Low Power and RF CMOS
process, providing up to six levels of Aluminum interconnects, MIM capacitor, polymide
passivation and I/O voltages of 1.8V, 3.3V and 5.0V. All silicon is produced at Foundry’s
state-of-the-art 200mm wafer fab in Landshut, Germany.
The process technologies are supported by design kits based on well-known Cadence and Tanner design environments. LFoundry provides a silicon-qualified set of general purpose I/O cells and digital standard cells, usable for Synopsys, Mentor Graphics or Cadence digital standard flow.
The MPW service runs with an industry leading monthly schedule and is complemented by a range of in-house backend services to facilitate fast time to market for prototyping and small volume production.
LFoundry is qualified to both ISO9001 and ISO/TS 16949 standards.
