Factory connectivity and data collection

Our software enables reliable communication between equipment and factory systems.

  • SDR™ is a 32-bit SECS driver for implementing SECS-I and SECS-II communications on factory control systems running Windows, Linux, or Solaris.
  • SDRPlus™ is a high-performance 64-bit SECS driver for implementing SECS-II communications on factory control systems running Windows or Linux.
  • EIB® Factory connects factory host systems to equipment for communication and data management in your 200mm or 300mm semiconductor factory.
  • PEER® EDA Tuner™ helps you create EDA data collection plans for collecting real-time SEMI E120 CEM data in the EDA format.

Station controller frameworks and equipment integration

We provide comprehensive equipment integration (EI) services including tool characterization, EI baseline design, EI development, and station controller development.

  • PEER FACTORY® Station Controller (PFSC™) is an advanced platform for integrating equipment into an automated factory and developing station controllers for equipment on the manufacturing floor.
  • FAST FW™ provides a framework for factories to build SEMI-compliant station controllers for equipment connectivity, job management, and data collection.

Smart Factory platform and fab automation applications: MES, APC, etc.

Our PEER FACTORY® software provides the foundation for building a custom factory automation solution – like a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) for your semiconductor factory. Drawing on our solid base of equipment-level automation experience, we can provide MES extensions including SPC, equipment performance tracking, and OEE. We also have a proven track record of deploying Run-to-Run (R2R) control and Fault Detection / Classification (FDC) algorithms and applications on a fab-wide scale. And, our engineers understand the challenges and requirements of Advanced Process Control (APC) including process identification, process model identification, controller design, parameter estimation, data classification and context management.

ACM, consulting services, QA, and testing

Because we are familiar with the world’s leading fabs and their automation requirements – and we provide testing software like our CCS Product Suite and PEER FACTORY® Acceptance Tester (PFAT™) products – some fabs prefer to outsource their automation quality assurance testing to us. We’ll review the fab specification, perform SEMI standards tests and dynamic scenario tests, analyze the results, and provide recommendations to correct a tool’s automation deficiencies. We can also implement a formal QA and testing process called Automation Capabilities Management (ACM) for those fabs that desire the highest quality automation interfaces for their incoming equipment.
