  • PTO
    PEER® Tool Orchestrator (PTO®) is an equipment automation and control framework with a GUI-based tool designer, PEER Tool Composer (PTC). Semiconductor OEMs use PTO to automate equipment....

  • 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 is a framework that equipment makers use to provide SEMI Standards-compliant connectivity to factory host systems. It supports various equipment interfaces and provides the flexibility to develop custom interfaces....

  • 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 is available in three versions:

    • EIB GEM for 200mm SECS/GEM equipment communications
    • EIB 300 for 300mm (GEM300) equipment communications
    • EIB EDA for providing EDA (Interface A) data to factory host systems

    EIB is easy to configure for any tool type 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 cloud-based remote connectivity product that semiconductor OEMs use to gain secure remote access to equipment and data, empowering geographically-dispersed experts to collaborate on deployed equipment from anywhere....

  • Remicus™ enables secure, scalable remote access to equipment and equipment data, empowering geographically-dispersed experts to manage manufacturing equipment via the web. 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 deployed equipment. 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 (Interface A) data to factory host systems, 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 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 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 configuration 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 collection of feature sets for building a custom factory automation solution, like a Manufacturing Execution System (MES). Our software engineers combine the feature sets to design custom solutions to meet manufacturing requirements....

  • We have assembled a collection of PEER FACTORY feature sets from which we build customized MES and similar applications for factories. We have launched factory control systems in PV solar, semiconductor, automotive, life sciences, and consumer electronics plants, connecting thousands of individual equipment instances. Our systems 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.

    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. Our experienced automation software engineers build systems per customer specification: tool connectivity, data management, UI development, and information delivery to ERP and other systems. Simply add PEER FACTORY feature sets as required to reflect expanding automation requirements.

  • PFAT
    PEER FACTORY® Acceptance Tester (PFAT™) is a scenario test designer. Semiconductor OEMs use it to build and execute holistic test automation scenarios to ensure equipment meets factory requirements....

  • 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.
