We had a strong showing at SEMICON Japan at the Makuhari Messe December 1 - 3. Attendance was brisk, and Cimetrix products were on display at both the Meiden and the Rorze booths. This event was a great opportunity for us, since we have just started Cimetrix Japan K.K. effective November 25, 2010. The new Cimetrix company will provide both new market development and customer support for the Japan marketplace.
In the Meiden booth, Cimetrix EDA/Interface A products were on display. In addition, Meiden highlighted the partnership between Meiden, DSD, and Cimetrix, which allows DSD and Meiden to offer complete EDA solutions using Cimetrix technology. These solutions are available to both equipment suppliers and IC manufacturers, and Meiden listed the benefits and sample architectures for each group.
Cimetrix CIMControlFramework (CCF) was on display at the Rorze booth running a complete 450mm vacuum platform. Many visitors stopped to watch this powerful demonstration. Cimetrix products were also highlighted, along with Rorze’s unique ability to deliver a complete hardware/software platform solution for equipment suppliers using Rorze and Cimetrix technology.
We also learned at the show that a new top 20 OEM in Japan would adopt Cimetrix connectivity products. It is great to see how companies are using our solutions to get to their products up and running in wafer fabs around the world.
Thanks to all those people who stopped by the booths. Please let us know if you need more information about Cimetrix connectivity or tool control solutions.
