SECS/GEM Connectivity

Factory automation starts with equipment connectivity. In today’s high-technology factories, reliable communications between host and equipment is required for basic operations such as lot movement, data collection and SPC as well as critical new functions such as fault detection or advanced process control (APC). PEER Group offers the broadest selection of proven connectivity products for SECS/GEM communications and control.
Learn more about our connectivity solutions.

Remote Connectivity – Remicus™

Semiconductor device manufacturing is a highly-complex industry with a competitive global business environment. Remote access to equipment and its data is a necessity for equipment suppliers (OEMs) in today’s connected world. Remicus offers the semiconductor industry the ability to connect securely to remote equipment, empowering geographically-dispersed experts to collaborate on equipment issues from anywhere.
Learn more about our remote connectivity solution.

Tool Automation - PEER Tool Orchestrator (PTO®)

New tool development can be costly and challenging for OEMs. PTO enables OEMs to focus on a tool's processes instead of on tool automation and hardware control. By utilizing PTO during new tool development, deployment challenges are minimized, time to market accelerated, and long-term maintenance costs reduced. From simple metrology tools, to batch implanters, to vacuum cluster tools, PTO can handle every wafer transport requirement and factory scenario.
Learn more about our tool automation solution.

Test Applications

Equipment automation software is difficult to get right the first time. The standards allow for too much interpretation and variation by both the manufacturers and equipment companies. As a result, proper testing is critical for quick factory acceptance and reliable production. We have testing products that go beyond basic SECS/GEM connectivity testing.
Learn more about our test applications solutions.
