MOSIS, CMP and CMC Partner to Introduce a 3D-IC Process

MARINA DEL REY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Jun 22, 2010 -- MOSIS, CMP and CMC are partnering to offer a 3D-IC Multi-Project Wafer (MPW) service based on Tezzaron Semiconductor's SuperContact technology and GLOBALFOUNDRIES' 130nm CMOS process.

The first MPW run is targeting January 2011:

  • 2-tier face-to-face bonded wafers
  • 130nm CMOS process for both tiers
  • Top tier exposing TSV and backside metal pads for wire bonding

A design-kit supporting 3D-IC design with standard-cells and IO libraries is available.

Further MPW runs schedule supporting process flavors (multiple tiers beyond 2, different CMOS flavors for different tiers) will be driven by users' requirements.

Potential users are encouraged to contact MOSIS/CMP/CMC for details (

MOSIS provides fabrication services to designers of advanced integrated circuits (ICs). Through its global network of foundry partners, the company offers customers a faster and more affordable route to market with leading-edge solutions for prototype and low-volume production. MOSIS serves a large global customer base from its headquarters in Marina del Rey, California. More information about MOSIS is available at
