I know their is a handful of cpu/microcontroller fab companies. Most places like Amd , and other cpu/microcontroller chip companies Just do the design and hire out the fab process since their aren't many places that have the equipment. My questions are 1) Is their somewhere I can get a complete list of all companies /places that have the possible ability to fab a cpu/microcontroller (i.e not only design it but make it) ? 2) Is it possible to get a cpu fab if you where able to create the designs for it. Obviously for PCB boards this is true and you can upload your eagle files usually. As well as it is not to to expensive to fab PCB designs for the most part. Is it any different when it comes to cpu or microcontrollers fabing?
