Greetings! Can anyone guide me how exactly can we (a University IC Design Lab) get a FAB PDK for our projects? Is the NCSU CDK a substitute for the actual FAB PDKs? Can the GDS II file of a project using NCSU CDK sent to the FAB for fabrication? If so, what is the difference between the FAB's PDK and the NCSU CDK?
Kindly guide me.
and so on... For universities I suppose you'll go with one of the first three in the list.
