The Efabless Design Platform offers a complete ASIC development solution for design partners that
streamlines the time and cost associated with creating custom silicon solutions for the market. The
platform includes a complete EDA design flow based on open-source tools, access to foundry process
technologies and IP as well as prototyping and production fabrication services.
Our platform includes:
a complete EDA design flow
access to foundry partners and design professionals
prototyping and fabrication services
Complete EDA tool chain
Foundry processes and PDK
Marketplace library of IP and reference designs
Instant access with no NDA required
There is no up-front cost to design on the platform. Fees are only paid at the time you go to prototype.
Completed designs can be published to the Efabless marketplace and licensed to other customers or design firms.
Additionally, you may choose to export the design from the platform for an additional one-time fee.
The Design Platform provides tools, infrastructure, processes and partnerships required
for a complete design and development of custom ASICs or IP.
A complete design flow is provided on the platform based on open-source
tools. The toolchain offers designers the ability to develop IP without the upfront costs
associated with tool licensing fees.
The toolchain features the following capabilities:
Static Timing Analysis
Layout & DRC
We are continuing to expand our foundry partners and supported technology nodes.
Today we support the following foundry and technology nodes:
Once design is complete, efabless provides cost-effective
prototyping services through MPW shuttle programs managed with our foundry
Fixed price packages are available based on the maximum die area of the ASIC project
and the node. These prices include:
All design and development on the platform using the Efabless design flow
Access to foundry technology to support development
Prototype services for design validation
Access to the Efabless community of design professionals and firms through the design
Fees are paid only at the time of requesting prototypes.
The prototyping service includes 50 samples (bare dies)
Prototyping services utilize prescheduled foundry MPW shuttles for the respective
technology nodes. Module support is limited. Final submission of design files must be
made two (2) weeks prior to the tape-in date for the MPW shuttle. Please contact us for
more information on the current MPW schedule or module support.
Packaging can be arrange through ecosystem partners for an incremental costs.
After prototyping, completed designs including schematics and GPS can be downloaded or
exported from the platform for an additional fee. The fee is equal to the original cost
paid for design and prototyping.
Additional costs may occur related to license fees charged by IP or designs used from the
Payments can be made securely online through credit card or through bank wire transfer.
