SkyWater Launches Direct Multi Project Wafer (MPW) FastShuttle™ Program, Expanding Capabilities to Meet Growing Customer Momentum

MPW program enables rapid design verification and faster time to market

BLOOMINGTON, MN, January 3, 2019 – SkyWater Technology Foundry, the industry’s most advanced U.S.-based and solely U.S.-owned Trusted Foundry, today announced its Multi Project Wafer (MPW) FastShuttle program offering customers quick and low-cost prototyping and design enablement with access to high performance processes and regularly scheduled launch dates. The program provides a vehicle to develop new ASIC and custom designs, meeting customers’ evolving requirements to bring products to market quickly.

SkyWater’s MPW FastShuttle program now supports rapid prototyping activities on its 90nm and 130nm technology nodes for applications ranging from commercially focused mixed-signal to specialized aerospace and defense. Volume manufacturing is supported at SkyWater’s ISO 9001 and ITAR compliant production facility.

“SkyWater’s MPW program is an extremely valuable service which directly meets our critical needs,” said Mike Ward, CEO, Linear ASICs. “Working with SkyWater gives Linear the advantage of high performance fab operations, but it is also the right size to be flexible and support us with the services we need to be responsive to our customers.”

The direct MPW program reduces prototyping cost for commercial and government customers by grouping IC designs and sharing mask costs among MPW program participants. In addition, production rebates effectively bring the cost of participating in the program to zero.

“We are pleased to announce the availability of our FastShuttle MPW program which enables our customers to achieve product prototyping, device characterization, and IP validation quickly and cost-effectively,” said Thomas Sonderman, President, SkyWater Technology Foundry. “We look forward to continuing to provide the reliability, IP security and high-quality manufacturing that is crucial for both military and commercial applications.”
