Connect any equipment – including IIOT devices – to factory systems
EIB is designed to support multiple equipment communication interfaces for almost any front-end or back-end equipment type. You can add EIB on equipment either out-of-process or in-process with your ECS, and connect to equipment, devices and factory host system. EIB provides a broad range of connection and communication interfaces including OPC UA, OPC DA, .NET Remoting, WCF, ASCII, COM and MQTT.
EIB’s flexile integration capabilities provide OEMs with many options for integrating into factories. For example, OEMs requiring IIOT connectivity can add IIOT equipment sensors to the factory using EIB’s MQTT interface.
PCB equipment manufacturers can leverage EIB to provide SEMI A3 PCBECI compliant interfaces for their tools. PLC-based equipment can add EIB for SEMI compliance by integrating through OPC UA or OPC DA. EIB’s variety of deployment options also includes the ability for OEMs to develop custom direct drivers for proprietary communication protocols.
To connect your equipment to the factory, EIB provides a SEMI-compliant SECS/GEM connection (200mm or 300mm, serial or TCP/IP), and multiple other options including .NET, WCF, EDA, MQTT, data management and a custom communication interface to write an alternative or customized factory host interfaces.
Our factory products use the same underlying EIB connectivity software technology which is used in leading semiconductor factories around the world. EIB’s high-quality and SEMI standards compliance will reduce your equipment integration time into any factory, and will also provide for a seamless connection between your equipment and factory hosts already using EIB connectivity.
Choosing EIB for your equipment will help you develop faster solutions, and faster, higher quality factory integrations.
