Agileo Automation will unveil at SEMICON Europa 2016 Speech Scenario, its new software to automate SECS/GEM equipment interface validation.
GEM stands for Generic Equipment Model, however each equipment needs to specialize the SECS/GEM interface to take in account its equipment specificities. Some tools allow SECS/GEM interface validation by manually sending SECS-II messages and manually analyzing the generated log file such as Speech, released in 2015 by Agileo, the first software tool to support SMN standard (SEMI E173 : XML SECS-II Message Notation).
Speech Scenario is a new software enabling automated SECS/GEM regression testing.
This open software enables SECS/GEM expert to write their own testing scenarios in C# language, one of the most popular programming language in the semi-conductor industry. The popular LINQ API is used to access SECS-II data items and it lets test program writer imagine any relevant test case for a specific equipment. SECS-II message format is automatically checked against SEMI E-5 standard, letting test program writer focus on scenario added value.
Speech Scenario improves overall equipment software quality at minimum cost since manual testing procedure can now be automated and repeatedly executed within minutes.
It is then possible to test equipment software more often and hence to be confident in equipment software modifications before releasing a software update worldwide.
Combined with A²ECF, Agileo Automation Equipment Controller Framework, Speech Scenario enables testing an equipment software without hardware thanks to A²ECF native hardware simulation build upon SEMI E120 (Common Equipment Model).
