A central organisation is crucial for effective coordination of the whole eco-system. JePPIX is playing such a role by addressing the following tasks:
- Brokering: combining designs from different users in Multi-Project Wafer (MPW) runs. In this way the costs of R&D runs can be shared by many users, which leads to a dramatic reduction of the entry costs.
- Organising proper documentation and training for the available foundry processes.
- Reaching out to potential users and mentoring through the decision process and design-fabtest flow, identifying opportunities that the novel technology brings for their product portfolio. Bringing them into contact with designers with expertise in their field.
- Setting the strategic roadmap and providing leadership in this new technology sector.
