On the Scene: Almost-Instant Semi Quotes with eSilicon

Historically, it has taken months, possibly many months to get a quote for semiconductor production. Lots of paper was involved – maybe a fax machine or two. Getting a MPW quote (in the old days) could be more like dentistry (get it? pulling teeth??!) than semiconductor design. Those days could be long gone if eSilicon has its way. In this episode of On The Scene, I chat with Mike Gianfagna and Bill Isaacson from eSilicon and get a MPW quote completely online and in less than three minutes. Take that fax machine!
