 Seeking Advice on Mixed Signal Foundries

: I'm trying to do an estimate on a mixed signal chip that's to be used
: in a consumer product.

My company has done wonderful mixed signal works with AMS (Austria Mikro
systeme), based in Unterpremstaetten, near Graz, in Austria.  They have very
good mixed signal processes in 2 and 1.2 microns.  The 2 micron process
also has a low threshold variant and can have high resistance poly, if
needed. Of course both processes are 2 metal 2 poly.

You could probably contact Professor Volker Kempe, director of Engineering, at

 Seeking Advice on Mixed Signal Foundries
I'm trying to do an estimate on a mixed signal chip that's to be used
in a consumer product.  Personally I'm quite strong in the digital/EDA
aspects of the design and the small analog part looks not too complicated.
(The analog part is already designed -- the customer just wants it to
be incorporated in his digital chip.)

My questions are: What are the gotcha's here?  What foundries are easy to
work with for mixed-signal designs?  Who should I avoid?  Why?
