| Not anywhere I've seen; it's almost impossible to get $10,000 worth of
| custom-made chips (minimum orders being a lot bigger), and, for an attack to
| take 2^9 seconds ('a few minutes'), you need 2^17 250MHz crackers. Not a
| $10,000 project by any means.
Take a look at "http://www.isi.edu/mosis/" and go download Magic and
Spice 3 at your local FTP site. Design rules and sample pad frame are
available for download too, if I recall correctly. Some Universities
use this service for their VLSI courses (mine did).
