After I made an advanced operating system my next crazy idea is to make a microcontroller.
I want to design it and then send it to a manufacturer to make the chip. So where I will design it and where i will send it for creating the chip? (I want to use CMOS technology and transistors as base part)

    \$\begingroup\$ I want to design it and then send it to a manufacturer to make the chip. - Do you have few hundreds of thousands of $ for this project (I might be underestimating, though..)? \$\endgroup\$ – Eugene Sh. Sep 19 '17 at 13:37

    \$\begingroup\$ I want to design it and then send it to a manufacturer to make the chip Pfffrt!!!! Sorry but I'm ROFLMAO. You obviously have no clue what that involves and not only $$ wise. Also CMOS uses transistors so CMOS technology and transistors as base part is nonsense. You could try to join an MPW project, that would still cost a 5-digit figure in US$ though. But seriously: educate yourself first before posting such rediculous ideas on this EE site. The people here know their stuff so you're only making a fool out of yourself. \$\endgroup\$ – Bimpelrekkie Sep 19 '17 at 13:41

    \$\begingroup\$ If you can come up with an innovative design that far surpasses existing technology you may just be able to license it to an existing manufacturer. However, the first part may take you a decade to do especially when you are obviously starting from zero knowledge. By then someone else will probably have come up with something better than your idea. If the idea itself has any merit you may just be able to convince a manufacturer to pay you to do, or do the research for you. \$\endgroup\$ – Trevor_G Sep 19 '17 at 14:25

I suggest you start by buying an FGPA development board, and create a softcore. Meanwhile, when done, you can start the layout.

This will take you several years.
Maybe enough to get into some investing, which could get you enough funds to be able to afford time in the silicon fab.
