Abstract : The commercial part of Motorola's ASEM Foundry is the responsibility of GSTG's Diversified Technologies Division (DTD) and is a joint venture with Motorola's Semiconductor Products Sector (SPS). SPS is responsible for the marketing support of the Foundry and support of devices for use in the Foundry. It should be noted that the Foundry is not bound to use Motorola devices exclusively, but rather use Motorola devices to the maximum extent possible consistent with function and cost considerations. DTD provides the lead for the Foundry and is responsible for performance of the MCM development including design, part selection, layout and test. A copy of the business plan as presented at the formation of the joint venture is included as Appendix A. Manufacturing of the MCMs for both commercial and Government products is the responsibility of the Microelectronics Factory (MEF) within GSTG. The MEF is responsible for the development and maintenance of all required manufacturing processes and equipment for the successful build of MCMs. In addition the MEF is also responsible for the development and maintenance of the design rules as they pertain to the manufacturing process and for the development and maintenance of qualified personnel. The Government portion of the Foundry is the responsibility of GSTG's Government Electronics Division (GED). GED is responsible for the design, part selection, layout and test of ASEMs. Each ASEM opportunity is addressed as a separate project beginning with the identification of an opportunity and continuing through the delivery of finished modules. This portion of the Foundry is fully compliant with all Government requirements and as a result, is responsible for seeing that the MEF is also compliant to the Government's requirements. Additionally, the Government Foundry is responsible for maintenance of the design kits, the layout systems
