X-Cite Award Program

This new award program on a continual basis recognizes the difficult challenge of integrating analog functions into CMOS-based technologies, and honors the vision and expertise of designers who enhance X-FAB semiconductor processes. X-FAB’s semiconductor technologies are used in a variety of high-voltage, MEMS, optical and analog products. These technologies are constantly being developed further to expand the breadth of existing application areas and make new ones accessible.

If you have an idea that uses X-FAB technologies in a novel way or pushes its technologies to the limits, please send us your project proposal. All entries will be judged on the novelty of the proposal and the technical level of difficulty of the project. The entry deadline for the next round of submissions is September 30, 2017.

The winner will receive a free prototyping run (MPW) including 5 sample dies to validate their ideas in the best-suited technology. 

Award Submission Guidelines

  • Your concept must not have been part of a prior MLM or MPW run.
  • It must be intended for implementation in one of X-FAB’s open platform technologies.
  • After project implementation you must provide a report to X-FAB on your silicon validation including measurement results.
  • X-FAB must receive your completed entry form by September 30, 2017.
