SkyWater is pioneering the Technology Foundry category by combining the best of a volume manufacturing fab with an agile development lab. Access to these services in a single facility is highly differentiated from other foundries and streamlines the path to market for customers. SkyWater was founded in March of 2017, acquiring Cypress Semiconductor’s 200mm semiconductor wafer manufacturing facility in Bloomington, MN. SkyWater is a solely U.S.-owned DMEA Cat1A Trusted Foundry offering advanced development capabilities co-located with volume production to deliver integrated circuits and micro devices in growing markets such as aerospace & defense, automotive, cloud & computing, consumer, industrial, IoT and medical.
The Company is committed to providing design and development services, exclusive design IP and world-class support for all its customers whether they are competing in established markets or defining new frontiers. SkyWater offers ASIC solutions with 90nm-350nm mixed-signal process flows, design enablement resources and recurring MPW services, providing silicon technologies such as high performance mixed-signal CMOS, Power, Rad- Hard, ROICs and interposer solutions. In addition, through the capabilities of its highly experienced team of development engineers, SkyWater’s Innovation Engineering Services enable the technologies of tomorrow such as 3D integrated circuits, carbon nanotubes (CNTs), superconductivity, photonics, MEMS and more in a fast-paced, quality-focused environment.
In August of 2018, SkyWater announced its involvement with DARPA’s Electronics Resurgence Initiative (ERI). The Company is working alongside MIT on the largest of the ERI programs: the Three Dimensional Monolithic System-on-a-Chip (3DSoC).
SkyWater approaches the task of developing manufacturing processes for customer ideas with an open mind, thinking about what it will take to explore and develop these ideas into products that can be rapidly commercialized.
