One-click MPW and GDSII quoting access
eSilicon's automated online multi-project wafer (MPW) and GDSII quoting portals now have one-click access. These portals deliver real, executable quotes in just a few minutes. "We've seen broad customer acceptance for eSilicon's online quoting portals. We've had over 300 registrations from 43 countries and users have generated nearly 700 quotes," said Mike Gianfagna, eSilicon's VP, marketing. "We've been able to reach out to people all over the world with our online tool suite."
"My team really likes the 'what if' aspect of the tools," said Ronald Jew, general manager, Wireless Infrastructure Products at Integrated Device Technology. "For example, with the GDSII quoting tool, you can see how changing one variable, such as packaging or metal stack, affects your production unit price three years out. This is a very powerful budgetary and design planning tool."
"I appreciate the time savings," said Bill Brennan, Credo Semiconductor's president and CEO. "We can run as many quotes as we want, any time we want. We don't have to play phone tag for a week to see how much a spot on an MPW shuttle will cost."
"As an IP provider, we are always looking for new ways to connect with our customers," said Mahesh Tirupattur, EVP, Analog Bits. "eSilicon's MPW and GDSII portals help us do that with a global reach."
New users can request an online MPW or GDSII quoting account on the eSilicon website. Registered users will find the new interface to be a vast improvement from the first-generation implementation. There is no charge or obligation to use the MPW or GDSII quoting portals.
Real-life online quoting webinar
Jew, Brennan and Tirupattur will discuss their experiences with the MPW and GDSII quoting portals in a new eSilicon webinar, " Semiconductors Go Online and Worldwide," on November 12, 2014 at 9:00 AM PST. The panel will explore the impact of this new online technology from both a fabless semiconductor and IP provider point of view. Discussion will include the impact of online quoting for semiconductors, users and use cases and what else is needed.
