SkyWater launches direct MPW FastShuttle program

SkyWater Technology Foundry of Bloomington, MN, USA - a solely US-owned Trusted Foundry that manufactures differentiated integrated circuits in markets including consumer, industrial, aerospace & defense, automotive, and the Internet of Things (IoT) - has announced its multi-project wafer (MPW) FastShuttle program offering what is said to be 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 application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) and custom designs, meeting customers’ evolving requirements to bring products to market quickly.

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

“SkyWater’s MPW program is an extremely valuable service which directly meets our critical needs,” comments Mike Ward, CEO of 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,” he adds.

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, says SkyWater.

The FastShuttle MPW program “enables our customers to achieve product prototyping, device characterization, and IP validation quickly and cost-effectively,” says SkyWater’s president Thomas Sonderman. “We look forward to continuing to provide the reliability, IP security and high-quality manufacturing that is crucial for both military and commercial applications.”
