Silver Level Area Reduction: ICs with fewer than 100 Transistors*

Silver Level Area Reduction: ICs with fewer than 100 Transistors*

Is the parametric yield of your small IC already 100% ? And does your IC contain fewer than 100 transistors?*

If so, I will come to your company site and, for only $4,064 (what you would pay a graduate student intern for one month), cut the transistor area of the IC by 10% or more in less than a month, without adversely affecting its parametric yield. 

What if I don't achieve the above target in less than a month ? In that case, you pay nothing.

Now, I know what you are thinking. This type of service will probably cost you $5.13 trillion dollars, or, at the very lease, $700 billion. But don't worry. I won't charge you $5.13 trillion. I won't even charge you $700 billion. You will get all of the above for a mere $4,046. That's right, only $4,046. That's only about what you would pay a graduate student intern for a month.


Terms and Conditions: 

The work month has to be a calendar month, starting the first, second or third day of the month, and ending the last day of the month.

On the first day of work, you have to provide me with all of the following:

1. An HSpice, Spectre or Eldo (SCAM** Simulator) netlist that you used to run Monte Carlo simulations.

2. Whatever statistical analysis you have performed with SCAM** Statistical Vaporware***, including mismatch analysis if any.

3. An office environment (cubicle or office), with a computer and access at least one license to all of the tools mentioned above.

4. The ability for me to install NGSpice and whatever other software I need.


Note: except as part of our Summer Internship programs, the above service won't be available until March 1, 2032.

* Transistor Accounting: the number of transistors is the number of transistors that will ultimately be in the manufactured circuit. So, if you have a netlist with 90 transistors and a behavioral model that will ultimately be implemented in manufacturing with thousands of transistors, that's a thousands transistors circuit, NOT an IC with few than 100 transistors.
