If you want to make your own chip and aren't Microsoft rich, who do you turn to?


Re: Speaking of Nodes

The best way to getting a fully open source 65nm or 45nm process technology is to help make the 130nm programs (and other future programs) successful. If the community can show the demand for open source process technologies is there and it is enabling an explosion in new designs and customers for the foundry then the argument will be easy.

There is a document at https://j.mp/si130nm which aims to provides some inspiration for what can be done with the currently available technology.
