Custom Foundry Services

World’s Most Experienced Mixed-Signal Foundry

Customer service and satisfaction are paramount. Experienced program managers and development Customer Service Resources (CSR) drive your design through the engineering and prototype stages to ensure the best prototype cycle time in the industry. If you need an expedited turn time, your development CSR will develop a special program for you. Superior service continues in production. A knowledgeable factory-based production CSR and product marketing manager are available to quickly respond to your inquiries and service your immediate needs.

 

The MyON website enables customers to access our available intellectual property (IP) libraries, review and request legal agreements, monitor product activity, and view associated trend charts.

 

Global presence ensures accurate and responsive communications with factories in the USA (Pocatello, Idaho and Gresham, Oregon) and Europe (Oudenaarde, Belgium).

Custom Foundry Mixed-Signal Platforms

Multi-Project Support

We are affiliated with two “multi-project houses” – MOSIS and Europractice. Both provide low-cost prototyping and small-volume production services for VLSI circuit development. Mask generation, wafer fabrication and device packaging can be contracted through MOSIS and Europractice to us.

 

MOSIS and Europractice keep the cost of fabricating prototype quantities low by aggregating multiple designs onto one mask set. This option provides yet another cost-effective tool for our customers. MOSIS and Europractice have certified us as a qualified foundry supplier. A variety of both foundry-specific and vendor-independent CAD tools, design kits and libraries may be used to prepare your design. Reticles with multi-chip designs are sent to us, processed on a routine schedule and the device’s function and performance results are provided to the customer.

 

Fab process performance is reviewed routinely by the multi-project houses. Special test chips are included on every reticle to monitor wafer fab performance.

 

This multi-project approach is a cost-effective and efficient technique for the new project developer and the low volume user. When project volumes increase, GDSII data can be forwarded to our foundries for a cost effective production run.

Foundry Process Longevity

ON Semiconductor’s philosophy for process longevity means we keep needed processes around to accommodate your long-term needs. We are committed to supporting long-life products and are dedicated to building long-term relationships. Supporting this is the company’s financial strength and commitment to effective use of resources. As a result, our customers have the confidence to make long-term product decisions without the concern of process obsolescence.
