IBM to Design Chips for Customers

Posted on Wednesday, August 18 2004 @ 23:34:40 CEST by

Traditionally, fabless semiconductor companies solve complex design issues on their own or hand off their issues to specialized design shops, though, not all companies can afford complex chip design these days. For those companies IBM wants to offer a service that will put all the ASIC design issues on IBM’s Engineering & Technology Services division.

IBM Engineering & Technology Services has set up a foundry design center that offers a full range of foundry design services from start to finish (RTL to GDSII). Final GDSII databases are offered in IBM’s foundry technology or in competing technologies.
