Time Stamping

Continous timestamped Data Storage without Influence of Daylight Savings

  • It is important that a MES software stores data with timestamps in UTC and not in local time. The problem are daylight savings applied to local time in many countries, including EU: In Spring, you have a gap of one our in your datastream, in Autumn you loose data of 1 hour ( as it is not possible for most MES systems, to store 2 datasets with the same timestamp :-( ).

SEMI Standards


Equipments Data Acquisition ( EDA )

  • SEMI Interface A Standards ( E120, E125, E132, E134 ).
  • EDA does not replace the SEMI SECS/GEM standards or the SEMI GEM 300 standards, since EDA does not provide any features for equipment control or configuration. Instead, equipment suppliers support EDA in addition to other required interfaces.

SEMI SECS/GEM & SEMI GEM 300 - Communications of MES Systems with Factory Equipment

  • SEMI SECS/GEM standards ( E4, E5, E30, and E37 ).
  • SEMI GEM 300 standards ( E39, E40, E87, E90, E94, E116, E148, and E157 ).
  • The Generic Equipment Model ( GEM ) defines a standard implementation of SECS-II for all semiconductor manufacturing equipment. The GEM standard defines a common set of equipment behavior and communications capabilities that provide the functionality and flexibility to support the manufacturing automation programs of semiconductor device manufacturers.
