Design Kits

The precise design kit contents, the DKLAs give access to, are technology dependent. The kits can e.g. contain:

  • Handbooks or design manuals:
    • Layout handbook
    • Process handbook
  • Technology settings and basic examples for:
    • Ipkiss suite
    • PhoeniX suite
    • Cadence Virtuoso
    • KLayout
  • DRC deck for Calibre
  • Example GDSII files

Note that EUROPRACTICE offers access to MPW services for non-commercial use by universities and research centers. For commercial use, the institute or company can be served through Europractice but aproval from the foundry is required. In this case, EUROPRACTICE will bring you in direct contact with the foundry.
