Say I have designed a logic circuit. If I were to construct it, due to the cost of individual components as IC's, it would be very expensive (and tedious). Is there a way that I can get my circuit printed into an IC?
So far it seems from my research that companies don't like to print a single IC and would rather that you ordered thousands and pay a minimum fee of ~$10,000 which for my budget is out of the question.
The circuit I have now I estimate is around $600 which is still not within my budget (under $200).
Is there any reasonable way to do this? I can't imagine it is this hard for people to build their own (largeish) logic circuits.
Edit: I should add that this is a hobby and only one or so IC is needed.
