Join us: we're presenting on smart manufacturing at SEMICON Japan

Kitchener, Ontario – December 1, 2016 

You are invited to attend our presentation

Hear how you can leverage the SEMI standards to enable smart manufacturing in an existing facility

  • Location: TechSPOT WEST (East Hall 1)
  • Date: Wednesday, December 14, 2016
  • Time: 15:00-15:50  
  • Speaker: Doug Suerich, Product Evangelist

The emerging IoT market is driving the growth of 200mm fabs which have traditionally not embraced the level of automation found in 300mm manufacturing facilities. However, as the demand for low-cost devices increases, better manufacturing control is becoming a must for all fabs. Emerging smart manufacturing technologies hold the promise of providing the flexibility required to respond rapidly and cost-effectively in both high-volume/low-mix and high-volume/high-mix production environments. But, adding such technologies can be challenging to implement in facilities with existing equipment and manufacturing operation systems that do not support easy customizations.

Our product evangelist, Doug Suerich, will propose an architecture that leverages the SEMI standards to retrofit a fab with the latest big data and analysis capabilities, without impacting existing equipment and operations.

We look forward to seeing you at SEMICON Japan!
