Licensing Requirements or Restrictions
HOW TO GET A LICENSE FOR UNIVERSITY ACADEMICS:
1. Obtain a MOSIS Account
To use this technology, your university must have a current MOSIS commercial account. The university must have signed a MOSIS customer agreement. Your STC Administrator should know if you have such an account.
If these agreements are not yet in place, your STC administrator needs to arrange for an official signatory of the university to sign the MOSIS commercial account application and the customer agreement.
2. Obtain TSMC Approval
To start the approval process, complete and submit the online TSMC 65nm Access Request form. Note that this form must be completed by a faculty member (staff and student applications are not accepted).
To obtain any of the design kits for TSMC technologies, the Account Liaison must complete the Academic Account Request for Document Access application form, including signing the Individual Non-disclosure Agreement (NDA) for University Account Liaison (Faculty). The Application includes:
Account Liaison NDA
List of all students, staff, and other faculty who have signed individual NDAs (Note that these documents have an expiry date: student NDAs must be renewed every six months, while staff and faculty NDAs must be renewed annually.) All individuals who intend to use the technology must sign individual NDAs.
