The paperwork signature process associated with participating in a shuttle run often takes longer than anticipated, requiring multiple signatures from your company, the University, and OpSIS management.
Late paperwork submission has caused a few users to miss the shuttle run!

1.) To incentivize our users to complete the registration process early, OpSIS offers tiered pricing.  This enables us to better plan and utilize our resources.

a)    If your paperwork is fully completed and payment received by the “Early Bird” submission deadline your design area will be priced at $1,800/mm2 (USD)

b)    If your paperwork is fully completed and payment received by the “Standard” submission deadline your design area will be priced at $2,000/mm2 (USD)

c)     If your paperwork is fully completed and payment received by the *“Last Call” submission deadline your design area will be priced at $2,200/mm2 (USD).

*NOTE: This is the last available date to submit your paperwork. Paperwork submissions after this date will not be accepted.

2.) “GDS hard deadline” is the last date for you to submit your file to make the shuttle run. Regardless of the Pricing Tier, GDS submission isn’t due until the GDS Deadline date.  Submitting your designs before this date will give us a chance to review your design with you to insure that there are no obvious mistakes.

3.) The “Diced Chips sent to Users” date is the approximate date you can expect your chips to be sent to you.

4.) The cost per mm2 is the cost of actual design area. You will receive 20 copies of your design on chip.

Important Note: Your reservation on the shuttle run is NOT guaranteed until payment is received at the OpSIS Institute.
