Remicus

Secure, scalable remote connectivity solution to access your deployed equipment

Remicus™ enables secure, scalable remote access to equipment and equipment data, empowering geographically-dispersed experts enabling the human cloud. Pronounced reh-Me-cuss, the name is a combination of “remote” and a play on the Latin word for friend, amicus. It enables remote groups of tool experts to work efficiently towards a common goal on equipment located inside a fab.

Provide a higher standard of service to your fab customers and reduce your support costs

Remicus can be added easily to connect to a wide variety of equipment types and server platforms deployed in both lab and production environments. It provides a secure private encrypted network to connect experts, enables cost-effective support, and adds value to an OEM’s equipment solution offering for fab customers. Remicus provides OEMs the ability to obtain, analyze, and react to machine data, detect inefficiencies sooner, and develop new products faster. It allows them to accelerate equipment improvements and provide best-in-class equipment support. Using Remicus, OEMs can pull data out of the fab securely, and use that data to provide better customer support, make design improvements for current and future operations, and perform predictive analytics. These activities will reduce costs for both OEMs and fabs.

Remicus overview

Help fabs increase productivity and enable smart manufacturing

Cloud computing and big data needs are creating opportunities for manufacturers but are also creating challenges within the semiconductor industry. Remicus can be essential in enabling secure feedback of manufacturing intelligence back into the fab and equipment, providing the means to securely access and deliver structured and unstructured machine data to users who can extract its value. Smart manufacturing initiatives are changing the way semiconductor device makers leverage data to gain insights into manufacturing processes positively impacting productivity, efficiency, quality control, and operations.

Enable big data exchange between fabs and OEMs

Remicus makes machine data available for deeper analytics, helping OEMs and fabs obtain optimal equipment performance quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively. In the past, many fabs reacted to the limited data they could collect and OEMs struggled with limited tool processing information from fabs. Now, large volumes of sensitive data can be available from different equipment components and stages in the manufacturing process. Interconnecting equipment and process data provides new opportunities to fabs and OEMs. Successful big data analytics integrated into smart manufacturing solutions enables predictive modelling and allows manufacturers and suppliers to turn information into action.

Our technology provides secure access management functionality to control, track, report, and audit the information exchange between the OEM and the fab. Its collaborative authorization workflow addresses the unique security requirements of the semiconductor industry, ensuring IP protection and the secure flow of approved information.
