About Our 3D Multi-Project Wafers (MPWs)

A multi-project wafer (MPW) is a vehicle that allows several entities to share the costs and risks of building prototypes.  Tezzaron has participated in several MPWs for 3D-IC prototypes.  A valuable partner is CMP (Circuits Multi Projets) in France.  Kholdoun Torki of CMP gives an excellent description of the 3D MPW process:
