Connect your factory and manage your big data faster
EIB® Factory is a SEMI Standards-compliant framework that 200mm and 300mm semiconductor factories use to connect factory host systems to equipment, enabling equipment communication and data collection. EIB Factory supports various equipment interfaces and provides the flexibility to develop custom interfaces.
**To enable EDA data collection in your factory, use EIB Factory plus PEER EDA Tuner.
EIB Factory is a multi-connection, multi-protocol connectivity software solution for factories that reduces the cost of integrating diverse equipment into your factory control system and enables unprecedented direct access to real-time data from your manufacturing equipment.
This secure access is available to multiple clients, from individual or multiple tools, and can be enjoyed via multiple standard communication protocols. EIB is a single, integrated platform that delivers flexible automation communication SEMI standards SECS/GEM, GEM300, Equipment Data Acquisition (EDA) and custom interfaces – used in semiconductor, PV, LED, MEMS and other high-technology manufacturing.
Store 10x more data, 450x faster than with a SQL database, and use only 1/10th of the database size
In the Smart Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 era, all semiconductor manufacturers and OEMs collect more data than ever from equipment, sensors and IIoT devices. More data collection means more required storage so your big data is available for analysis.
EIB® offers leading-edge advancements in data management; it leverages time-series data collection used for data that is collected sequentially, e.g., from processing equipment and sensors. While the need to store time-series data is not new, the growing amount of big data generated in semiconductor manufacturing has created demands that cannot be supported by typical database solutions. Fast and scalable data management (collection, storage and retrieval) is the foundation for solid Smart Manufacturing solutions and time-series databases are optimized to handle the challenges of managing massive amounts of data.
EIB has a specialized time-series database optimized to manage large volumes of big data
EIB’s time-series data management solution outperforms our fastest SQL solution and can scale to collect and store 10,000 data points 10 times per second (10Hz). That’s 100,000 data points per second! And, it uses only 1/10 of the storage capacity required by SQL.
The following chart shows EIB storage and retrieval rates compared to SQL for traces with 1,000 variables at 1Hz.
