The IC Knowledge - Discrete and Power Products Cost and Price Model is the industry standard for cost and price modeling of high power silicon integrated circuits and discrete devices, and compund semiconductors. To model low power silicon integrated circuits we recommend our IC Cost and Price Model.


The Discrete and Power Model is very easy to use, the user only has to make seven selections or entry's and there is help for many of them. The model then presents a detailed analysis of cost and pricing and offers over seventy options for customization. Cost includes wafer fabrication, wafer test, packaging and final test.
