The IC Knowledge - IC Cost and Price Model is the industry standard for cost and price modeling of low power silicon integrated circuits. Very easy to use, the user only has to make eight selections or entry's and there is help for many of them. The model then presents a detailed analysis of cost and pricing and offers over seventy options for customization. Cost includes wafer fabrication, wafer test, packaging and final test.
The Model supports over 550 processes broken out by company and process node and looking forward one to two process nodes. See the links in the gray bar at the right for the specific list of processes.
100mm, 125mm, 150mm, 200mm and 300mm.
Supported cost elements
Wafer cost, wafer test, packaging and final test.
