There is a new technology that allows the construction of IC's without requiring a billion dollar facility with clean rooms.

The technology promises to allow production facilities to be set up in the $100,000-$1,000,000 range which opens the door to a vast number of new markets.

What I propose is this. Custom wired IC's sold in small batches, the wiring for the IC's would be created via some form of fpga code base that is submitted to the online portal. That code is used to design the IC. The goal is to make this process autonomous, so small batches of highly efficient IC's can be produced at an economic rate without the need for massive scale production. ... echnology/
