We are seeing a significant increase in interest in the SEMI EDA/Interface A standards because semiconductor fabs have recognized they can turn the available data into useful and actionable information. For example, take a look at the recent blog post from David Francis on the adoption of EDA. One of the most important aspects of the use of the Interface A standards is that the semiconductor fabs and equipment suppliers need to communicate clearly with each other about which freeze version they will implement and how they will go about testing the connection.
Because of the Cimetrix experience and expertise in the use of, and software to implement, this standard, we are in a position to support the engineering community as they learn more about what is required to comply with EDA/Interface A.
We have recently updated our white paper on the Introduction to the SEMI EDA/Interface A standards white paper, and we encourage everyone using standards or finding out more about them to download the white paper.
