  • PTO
    PTO® is the industry-leading flexible tool automation and control software product for LED, semiconductor, and MEMS OEMs. It provides an infrastructure for scheduling, recipe execution, hardware control and tactical data analysis for all parts of a tool....

  • PEER Tool Orchestrator (PTO®) has a proven record of reducing an OEM’s tool development time, which has elevated it to be the most popular tool automation software platform for semiconductor, PV, LED, MEMS, and flat panel manufacturing. PTO provides all of the on-tool functionality required for material transport, optimized scheduling, alarm management, tool recovery, data collection, and factory host communications. Its flexible framework and intuitive configuration environment provides OEMs with the capability to develop their own control system quickly and continue to adapt to evolving manufacturing needs.

    EIB® OEM Product Suite is an integrated platform that reduces the cost of satisfying diverse factory automation requirements. EIB quickly delivers equipment automation communication standards - SECS/GEM, GEM300, EDA and custom protocols....

  • EIB® OEM Product Suite is a multi-connection, multi-protocol host connectivity software solution for equipment suppliers that reduces the cost of satisfying each factory’s diverse automation requirements. It’s a single, integrated platform that delivers the equipment automation communication standards –SECS/GEM, GEM300 (including E148, E157), PV2 and EDA – used in semiconductor, PV, LED, MEMS and other high-technology manufacturing. EIB is easy to configure for any tool type and tool topography and integrates to the equipment control system or devices using a variety of standard communication mechanisms such as ASCII, COM, .NET, SECS/GEM or custom protocols. EIB OEM also enables rapid integration using OPC and OPC-UA for PLC-based equipment that use HMI/SCADA software packages such as Modbus, Rockwell’s RSView32 and FactoryTalk View, Wonderware Intouch, GE’s Cimplicity and iFix, Siemen’s SIMATIC WinCC, and National Instrument’s Labview.

  • Remicus
    Remicus™ is a secure, scalable remote connectivity solution that gives OEMs remote access to equipment and equipment data. Remicus enables remote groups of tool experts to work efficiently on equipment deployed inside a fab....

  • Remicus™ enables tool experts to manage manufacturing equipment via the web. It enables secure, scalable remote access to equipment and equipment data, empowering geographically-dispersed experts, adding value to an OEM’s equipment solution offering to their fab customers. Pronounced reh-Me-cuss, the name is a combination of “remote” and the Latin word for friend, amicus. It enables the human cloud whereby a distributed team works together efficiently on equipment inside a fab. Local service technicians in the fab collaborate with tool experts at OEM headquarters, giving the OEM the ability to support all deployed equipment regardless of location. Remicus provides a secure communication tunnel designed to protect both fab information and equipment-maker IP and meets the requirements of the most highly-secured corporate networks. It is based on cloud technology for scalability, meeting the peak data throughput needs of the largest to the smallest OEMs.

  • EIB EDA for Big Data
    EIB® EDA provides SEMI EDA enabling OEMs to deliver real-time data on-demand in high volumes without affecting normal equipment performance....

  • Our big data solutions allow companies to manage data in different ways, and organize and analyze large volumes of collected data quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively. EIB EDA provides SEMI EDA (freeze 1105, 0710) with E164, enabling you to deliver real-time data on demand in high volumes without affecting equipment performance. It provides the pipe to Big Data, allowing you to turn collected information (i.e., data) into action through advanced manufacturing application capabilities such as e-Diagnostics, SPC, APC, Fault Detection, Run-to-Run Control. EIB EDA is easy to configure. In a matter of days, EDA can be deployed on any type of equipment, allowing you to collect data from multiple sources. It’s easy to add. With config only (no coding), you can add EDA onto existing PEER Group solutions or onto any equipment providing a SECS host interface. It’s easy to integrate your ECS with our EDA software seamlessly, to create a fully-independent communications channel.

    PEER FACTORY® is a flexible, scalable, and lean automation software solution targeted for high-technology manufacturing environments where commercial, off-the-shelf Manufacturing Execution Systems don’t align with unique requirements....

  • We have assembled a collection of PEER FACTORY feature sets from which we will build a customized MES for your factory. We have launched factory control systems in PV solar, semiconductor, automotive, life sciences, and consumer electronics plants. Our systems connect thousands of individual equipment instances and support high-volume high-speed data collection, handle complex product routing and finite process control through recipe management, monitor equipment performance, and execute/control all factory processes.

    Our experienced automation software engineers build systems per customer specification: tool connectivity, data management, UI development, and information delivery to ERP and other systems. PEER FACTORY is scalable; you can start with a simple data collection system for a single tool or device, then grow to a full-scale manufacturing IT system using the same robust architecture. Simply add PEER FACTORY feature sets as required to reflect expanding automation requirements.

  • PFAT
    PFAT™ is a highly-configurable, dynamic test application that validates equipment software and SECS/GEM host communications. PFAT can integrate with independent software allowing engineers to share a common equipment software testing platform....

  • The developers of CCS Envoy™ and SECSIM Pro®+ have created PEER FACTORY® Acceptance Tester (PFAT™), a next-generation host simulation product designed specifically for SECS/GEM-based manufacturing equipment. With its graphical test designer and real-time results tracker, users can design tests quickly to simulate a factory’s operational scenarios and pinpoint failures easily. Factories can accelerate test development across entire equipment lists while OEMs can re-use scenarios across multiple factories. PFAT can communicate directly with a tool's control system or an independent software application for more rigorous software reliability testing. PFAT is the only product on the market that is designed to do comprehensive testing of SECS-based equipment to ensure production readiness. Both high-volume manufacturers and their suppliers use PFAT to find and solve problems on equipment to accelerate installation, increase equipment reliability, and avoid costly repairs in the field.
