ASIC versus COT
Choosing between a customer owned tooling (COT) and an ASIC production model is a dilemma faced by any fabless company. Depending on your company size and production volumes, each of the models has its pros and cons.
With the ASIC model you take advantage of your vendor’s manufacturing expertise, infrastructure and best practices, and reduce your risk.
The COT model, on the other hand, lets you maintain control in house but requires more resources and entails a higher risk. As an earlier stage company, cutting production costs may be one of your priorities, but you need to focus on your design core competencies rather than take the full burden of manufacturing.
