Smart Connected Equipment
CIM300 is a family of integrated products that provide the software development tools for implementing the GEM 300 SEMI standards. CIM300 is generally purchased by the semiconductor equipment supplier. It can be installed either directly onto the machine’s computer or onto a front-end computer. To implement the controlling and data gathering functionality, software developers must integrate the software with the equipment control software.
CIMConnect products provide an efficient, cost-effective method that enables equipment manufacturers to supply SECS/GEM communication interfaces to their customers. CIMConnect also offers the inherent ability for a single equipment to provide information to multiple host interfaces.
Cimetrix CIMPortal Plus
CIMPortal Plus is a software product that enables equipment suppliers to implement high speed data collection for EDA, a historical database, and other applications. CIMPortal Plus primary customers are equipment suppliers that integrate the product within the equipment control system.
SECSConnect is a software development kit for implementing either host or equipment SECS-II messaging in a software application. The communication protocol can be either SECS-I or HSMS. As a COM based library, SECSConnect is appropriate for both Factory and Equipment Supplier projects that use the Windows operating system. Software development teams can use SECSConnect as a communication driver for station controllers and/or test systems to manage and validate equipment GEM, SECS-II, and 300mm interfaces.
CIMControlFramework™ is a complete toolkit of software utilities, documentation, examples, and guidelines that enables companies to design and build equipment control software quickly for the production floor with full factory automation.
Smart Connected Factory
Cimetrix HostConnect is a software development kit for creating host-side applications that connect to GEM (SEMI E30) equipment over HSMS-SS (SEMI E37.1). As a native .NET library, HostConnect is ideal for creating traditional hosts, QA software, and factory monitoring applications.
EDAConnect is a software library for applications to implement the client-side of the Equipment Data Acquisition (EDA) SEMI standards also known as Interface A. High performance .NET assembly provides a version-independent abstraction layer and implements the client-side web service. EDAConnect also includes .NET forms to simplify GUI development in EDA client applications.
The EDATester software is part of the complete Cimetrix EDA connectivity suite that supports both the equipment-side and the factory/client-side implementations of SEMI Standards.
TestConnect is an easy-to-use graphical point-and-click testing tool that can be used for generating and logging host or equipment SECS-II message scenarios. It can also be used to verify and characterize station controller designs or emulate equipment behavior without the need for the actual equipment or coding. The graphical user interface allows test scripts and SECS messages to be created using click, drag, and drop techniques.
