MPW Services
This groundbreaking program, Multiple project wafer (known as MPW), significantly reduces the cost of one mask set and wafer processing by covering the various technologies from 1.0-micron to 0.15-micron and provides the frequent launch schedule through VIS-Online system.

MPW services break the barrier by letting multiple designs share tooling costs through a multi-project mask set. Mask NRE costs are significantly reduced for both product prototyping and circuit characterization. MPW services also validate the sub-circuit functionality and process compatibility of IP, standard cell libraries and I/Os.

Mask Services
For your convenience and to expedite the cycle time from tape-out to wafer-start, VIS provides the tape out service and subcontract mask tooling facility. The mask making service of VIS assures fast and timely mask delivery and eliminates mask damage or contamination during transportation.

VIS mask services include:

Frame Generation
Mask Making (Subcontract)
Mask Repairing (Subcontract)
