Anyone know a good semi-custom transistor array vendor?

  1. I'm looking for a product - similar to the semi-custom transistor
    arrays Cherry Semiconductor (now ON) or GEC/Plessey used to have back
    in the early 90's: an array with hundreds of transistors, with some
    larger devices around the periphery. They had some cross-unders and
    some resistors too. I'd prefer to customize only one metal layer. I
    have some past experience with the old Cherry product. I plan on
    providing the layout but will consider outsourcing layout to the
    vendor. Vendor must be capable of packaging and testing. My specs:
    Process: bipolar or CMOS
    process voltage >= 5 volts

    Thanks, Frank

    Have you looked into doing that with MOSIS?

    My buddies at...

    also claim to have an array.

    Also Camenzind's company...

    Or, if you have special needs (and money :) contact me. I and a
    layout associate can create anything you want.

  3. I don't think anybody would care to buy your tr-arrays or any thing of the
    nature. People are in hell right now due to high gas prices. If you
    really want to spend your money then go to Jim.

    Remember, Jim and I are poor now. We used to work for our evil master,
    killing innocent people around the globe, and we say God bless America,
    unfortunately God isn't doing what we instructed Him to do....Oh well, we
    ought to make fake money to service, what do think?

    Service to my evil master? Been there, Done that, and I've got my DD666 to
    prove it.

  5. Thanks, Jim.
    Yep, I've looked at the other two, but I need a place that's going to
    be around awhile, so I think it's time I learned more about MOSIS. Too
    Bad. Cherry Semi published a nice book on their bipolar array: I
    learned (copied) lots of transistor devices - regulated current
    sources, current output splitting amps, etc., and made a triple PLL
    and sync separator with it back in the 90's. Not sure about those
    special needs yet.

    There's also Maxim Semiconductor. They offer an array, the QuickChip line.

    But that might be overkill for your needs.

    What is?

    That Maxim doesn't offer such services?

    Or I'm not Robert H., who ever that is.

    Learn to read headers... anything with Message-ID or posting host with
    "" is a forgery and should be filtered out.

  10. I'm no forgery, for sure. But why is it that free resources
    always end up being abused? What a world we live in. Sheesh!

    Part of the problem in this case is the anonymous posting capability.
    If they would include the originating IP address in the header - like,
    Google do - forgeries would be a lot easier to detect.

    I was pretty sure that we had more than one decent regular here that
    used So JT it is just one creep there and very recent.
    Maybe it is one of dimbulb's sockpuppets.

    If JosephKK and Joreon were paying attention they'd have noted I had
    already listed Jeroen as an exception.

    Just previously in _this_ thread you said block the whole thing. Your
    notice of Jeroen and a7yv... must have been in a different thread.

    That was before I noticed that Jeroen was posting from

    I have now retrained myself to observe raw headers before
    double-clicking ;-)
