Yes. The first active devices should be functional mid of next week.

We had to figure out a proper way to form silicide and to interconnect the 
wires with the transistors.
That was ground work and is basically done now.
Resistor measurements will be done tomorrow...

And by measuring the transfer function of a transistor and storing it 
numerically into a file allows to create a SPICE model from it.

That's why I say, on Friday in a week we will most likely be able to provide 
the first models...

I think, the main reason why everyone is waiting for the project to run out of 
money or the people to walk away is rather, that established foundries, of 
which there are only a few, have not much interest into having another 
We had to research the things, the foundries keep a secret and worked the rest 
of the stuff out from scientific papers.
Took a while, but because there is now a lot of literature, it's quicker than 
the first time around, when the first foundries had to figure it out from
