Goodday Hagen,

I think the question is better phrased as to which packaging equipment LibreSilicon has access to and how much money they want to pay.
I think advanced wire-bonding can go to pad openings of 50um by 50um or below. The most recent trend is I think to go for flip-chip bonding and not wire-bonding though for advanced chips with high speed signals.

In the IO libraries we developed at my previous work place we did not integrate the bonding pads in the IO cells and we provided different sets of bonding pads and custom ones could even be generated for the customer. For space application typically wedge wire-bonding needs to be used and this needs bigger pad openings; some application can live with ball wire bonding and use smaller pad openings.
