The long-awaited set of EDA informational videos is now available on the Cimetrix website. They can be found at the http://www.cimetrix.com/EDA-In-Depth link found underneath the SEMI Standards tab on our home page.
The target audience for these videos includes anyone who is curious about the origins and vision behind the EDA standards; semiconductor factory operations people who want to know how these standards might provide real manufacturing benefit; automation/IT staff who need a refresher about the content of the standards themselves and alternatives for incorporating them in the factory’s data collection infrastructure; and, finally, purchasing people who must understand how to create robust requirements specifications for their equipment suppliers.
All the videos are roughly 6-8 minutes long, so we’ve tried to make it easy to address your individual interests. To this end, the first ten videos cover a wide range of technical and commercial topics grouped into the following three categories:
What is EDA?
Why is EDA important?
How do I buy/build an EDA solution?
More will be added over time as the topics of interest to the semiconductor manufacturing automation community evolve, but we invite you to have a look today to see what’s there. And if English (or Texan!) is not your native language, or you want to review written versions of this material, the transcript for each video can be downloaded via the link below each video. Moreover, if your company infrastructure does not support direct viewing of video content, please contact us so we can make alternative arrangements to deliver this material.
Finally, if you have a suggested topic you would like to know more about, please let us know. We may have a presentation already available, or a video demonstration underway that can answer your question. And if not…we’ll make one!♦
