Main focus of this talk is the SG13G2 Open Source PDK for IHP 130nm BiCMOS technology. One year ago, it was announced that IHP will publish an open source PDK for its SG13G2 technology. Since this is a long-term project, the current state will be presented. This includes the experiences and a road map for future work. The already known challenges and open issues will be addressed. Finally, an overview about multi-project wafer offer of IHP will be given.
Frank Vater studied information and media technology at Technical University of Cottbus (Germany) and recieved his master degree in 2007. He joined as scientist in IHP with main focus on hardware development for microcontroller and cryptographic cores. In 2017 he got his PhD in area of secure scan-chain test of ASICs. Finally he joined the position of project leader for PDK development in IHP in 2018.
