Chain-IC executes ASIC development projects according to its quality system. A project is divided into phases and enters the next phase by passing a Toll-Gate (TG). A phase can be quite long. Therefore, milestones can be defined to split the phase into smaller parts. For each part, work packages can be defined with a more detailed description of the activities.
At every toll-gate, and before passing, the project status will be reviewed using checklists and verified whether the intended goals are met. In nearly all projects, the toll-gate reviews are done in cooperation with the customer. Chain-IC utilizes a compliance matrix to cross-reference the proposed specifications throughout the project.
