Chartered Semiconductor Mfg has added Dai Nippon Printing Co. Ltd (DNP), IBM Engineering & Technology Services (E&TS) and Socle Technology Corp. into its design service alliances program. DNP will serve as a turnkey solutions provider from design to tested packaged chips; IBM E&TS will provide end-to-end design expertise and advanced technology integration; while Socle will offer integrated system-on-chip (SoC) services to support platform-based design.

"As companies contemplate their move to 0.13?m, they are increasingly looking to their foundry partner for design services support and the opportunity to better leverage design and tool investments," said Kevin Meyer, VP of worldwide marketing and services at Chartered. "The addition of DNP, IBM E&TS and Socle to our Design Services Alliance Program improves customers' access to more expertise, broader choices and greater flexibility."

Chartered and its design services alliance program members share common goals that preserve the customer-owned tooling model for chip development. All program members are qualified through a comprehensive certification process, which involves design to physical implementation of a representative design. Program members must also demonstrate technical competence and familiarity with Chartered's process and design solutions. Chartered's design services alliance program members also include Accent in Europe; Flextronics Semiconductor Inc., Qthink and Time To Market Inc. in the U.S.; HOYA Corp. and Toppan Printing Co. Ltd in Japan; and Uleadtek Inc. in Taiwan.
