SkyWater Technology, Inc (NASDAQ: SKYT) bagged $15 million in funding from the Department of Defense (DOD) to facilitate open source design for its 90 nm process offering, part of the previously announced $27 million investment.
SkyWater previously partnered with Google to enable the open source design of custom application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) on its 130 nm mixed-signal CMOS process through the open source SKY130 PDK.
SkyWater’s new commercial SKY90-FD open source offering is based on MIT Lincoln Laboratory’s 90 nm fully depleted silicon on insulator (FDSOI) CMOS process technology.
SkyWater CEO Thomas Sonderman said, “This will expand our 90 nm foundry offering as a platform for innovation and productization here in the U.S.”
Will Grannis, CEO of Google Public Sector, said, “Our collaboration will help address the historical limitations of chip design and production for national defense by improving accessibility for researchers and developers to innovate faster and at lower costs.”
Price Action: SKYT shares traded higher by 3.95% at $13.67 on the last check Thursday.
