Newbie level 2
I have a chip that I estimate it needs about 400,000 gates. I would like to implement it in an ASIC. But I need to do it real cheap. As cheap as possible. I do not mind using gate array. I also have never done this so could someone give price estimates. Like NRE costs, etc. for low production ASIC or Gate Array. So far the cheapest Gate Array I know of was with a little over $40k on the NRE, and the chips were okay priced at something like 2-4 dollars for low quatities. Also, if anyone knows of any financial backing I could get.
