More data, faster: next-gen EDA standards

Growing demands for collecting and managing Big Data have renewed focus on the Equipment Data Acquisition (EDA, Interface A) SEMI® Standards, which provide a high-speed data collection framework for gathering large volumes of data from equipment. As part of EDA Freeze 3 development, the Data Diagnostic Acquisition (DDA) Task Force under the SEMI Information & Control Standards Technical Committee wrote a new standard, SEMI E179-0320: Specification for Protocol Buffers Common Components. Leveraging gRPC with Protocol Buffers in the EDA Standards improves network performance and enables faster data transfer.
