Shuttle Service

The Shuttle Service is a test production service that uses MPW (multi-project wafer). Because multiple customers share mask and wafer resources, the service makes it possible to manufacture test chips at low cost. USJC provides the shuttle service for 55 nm and 40 nm. It is available for use by a variety of customers in Japan and abroad. We are prepared to respond flexibly to your requests. Please do not hesitate to inquire.
