SEMI EDA Standards Are Essential for Smart Manufacturing:
What You Need to Know and Why

On-Demand Webinar - Fill out the Form Below

The SEMI Equipment Data Acquisition (EDA/Interface A) standards improve the performance and flexibility of communication between a factory's data collection, analysis, and application systems and the factory equipment.

As companies implement Smart Factory and Industry 4.0 initiatives on the manufacturing and test operations floor, it is now essential for these AI and machine learning applications to have rapid and easy access to the massive amount of data that is being generated. In this webinar, you will learn what needs to be done to properly leverage EDA/Interface A in your manufacturing operations, and why these steps are essential to successfully achieving your smart manufacturing goals.

This webinar is the first in a two-part series. The second webinar, “Harnessing the Power of SEMI EDA Standards: Implementation Best Practices,” will describe the EDA deployment process and highlight a number of the solution technologies now available to realize the benefits while “future proofing” the resulting factory systems.

The purpose of this webinar is to give those unfamiliar with the SEMI EDA suite of standards a basic understanding of the:

  • Manufacturing benefits and associated use cases that have been realized through  its deployment;
  • Functional capabilities and the differentiation from SECS/GEM/GEM300;
  • Range of manufacturing stakeholders positively affected;
  • Required additions to equipment purchasing specifications; and last, but not least,
  • Adoption roadmap and status across the global semiconductor industry (IDMs, foundries, equipment suppliers)

Who Will be Interested in this Webinar

Given the wide range of potential stakeholders involved in an EDA/Interface A deployment strategy, people from the following semiconductor factory organizations could well benefit from this webinar: 

  • Automation managers and engineers
  • Process, equipment and industrial engineers
  • Manufacturing data analysts
  • AI/ML (Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning) technologists
  • Manufacturing application software developers

Equipment suppliers who want to understand the rationale behind the latest automation purchase specifications will benefit as well.
