Update #1
Jeff DiCorpo | Efabless | Oct 26, 2022

Shuttle Update

Thank you for being a chipIgnite customer. As you may have seen in the #announcements channel on Slack, we have been updating the Caravel design to address issues found in silicon testing from the Open MPW-2 shuttle.  Our team has made strong progress to root cause and correct these issues, and we plan to resubmit April (2204C) and June (2206Q) chipIgnite projects to the foundry this week. We are funding an accelerated tapeout, which means we are targeting getting the custom chips for these shuttle programs back in early 2023.  

Delivering your chipIgnite products is a top priority for us, and we appreciate your patience. If you have further questions or would like to schedule a meeting with us, please reach out to us through Slack or email. We will also be contacting many of you individually to set up meetings for sharing updates and answering any questions in real time. 

 

Best Regards,

Efabless
