The IC Knowledge - IC Cost and Price Model is the industry standard for easy to use estimates of low power silicon integrated circuit manufacturing cost and price. Simply make eight selections or data entries and have a detailed model with the ability to explore costs from Q1 of 2015 to Q4 of 2029. All the major fabs and processes are predefined for you. Available since 2000 the IC Cost and Price Model is truly the industry standard and is in use at major electronics and semiconductor companies, equipment and materials companies, analysts, consultants and many others. The model covers wafer cost, wafer sort, packaging and class test. The 2018 release adds new processes and features updated data.
The IC Knowledge - IC Cost and Price Model is the industry standard for cost and price modeling of low power silicon integrated circuits. For high power silicon integrated circuits and discrete devices, we recommend our Discrete and Power Products Cost and Price Model.
The IC Model is very easy to use, the user only has to make eight selections or entry's and there is help for many of them. The model then presents a detailed analysis of cost and pricing and offers over seventy options for customization. Cost includes wafer fabrication, wafer test, packaging and final test.
The Model supports over 660 processes broken out by company and process node and looking forward one process nodes. See the links in the gray bar at the right for the specific list of processes.
Supported wafer sizes
100mm, 125mm, 150mm, 200mm and 300mm.
Supported cost elements
Wafer cost, wafer test, packaging and final test.
