Design-Kits (DK)

CMP distributes design-kits, containing principally standard cell libraries, models for specific software tools and design rules.
CMP handles more than 40 design-kits, corresponding to IC’s, Photonic IC’s or MEM’s technologies from different foundries.

DK are delivered after signature of a NDA/CLA and on condition that the designs are submitted to CMP for fabrication. Users are informed by CMP when a new DK release is issued, they can update their version.
CMP supports the customers through a DK Support center interface.

The following table always includes current releases. More details in each technology of the Process Catalog:

To receive the Confidentiality Agreements and/or design kit or documentation distributed by CMP, fill in the Design-Kit request.


NDA/CLA and next the Design Kit/Documentation, are sent by one month (time for Foundries agreements to be approved and for the export licence, necessary for non EC countries).


Free of charge for all designed circuits fabricated through CMP runs. Full information is sent in the first signed document named “Confidentiality and Licence Agreement”.

TWO original forms of the Confidentiality Agreements are mandatory.

Design Kit Support Center

A dedicated interface to technical support is available on a secure web site. Several support levels are addressed (e.g. installation issues, use of the technology files or libraries, design-flow, etc.) through different tickets.
