2000*

Layout, design for packaging, design for testing, DRC: VLC will support the customer when doing their own design, by answering any design related questions they may have, providing design review and recommendations (layout, design for test, design for packaging) and helping on the DRC corrections.

Standard

VLC-DES

Using only available building blocks at the foundry PDK. Prices will depend on the availability of builidng blocks, design complexity and cell size.

Custom

VLC-Custom

on request***

A design is considered standard when it adheres to the MPW requirements and generic foundry processes, and the photonic circuit only makes use of building blocks available on the target foundry PDK. When a novel building block or process customization is required to be newly designed, such design is considered custom. A full design report will be provided afterwards in electronic pdf format.
