Advanced Process Control (APC) and other key manufacturing applications
SEMI Information and Control standards, especially GEM300 and EDA/Interface A
Semiconductor manufacturing technology


  •  Modern semiconductor factories must leverage multiple equipment communications standards to support the full range of command, control, and analysis functions required for production operations
  •  Factory stakeholders expect a consistent user experience for equipment data collection regardless of the underlying technology
  •  The latest factory-side equipment data collection and management systems directly implement all the SECS, GEM300, and EDA/Interface A SEMI Standards on an integrated platform
  •  Extensibility to support emerging IoT (Internet of Things) protocols is also a fundamental requirement
  •  This presentation highlights the scope, features, system architecture, and potential applications of such an integrated platform
