What's new in this release

This release of the CCS Product Suite includes updates to CCS Envoy™ and to the CCS Test™ Plans that validate the E30, E40, E84, E87, and E90 SEMI standards. These updates are based on customer requests and bug fixes; no changes were required to remain current with the latest published versions of the SEMI standards.

E30 Test Plan changes

  • Increased timing flexibility during recipe validation to account for different equipment response time capabilities.
  • Synchronized data items in the E30 test plan and CCS Envoy-generated supplier spreadsheets to ensure equipment configuration information is complete.

E40 Test Plan changes

  • Improved the automated selection of tests for different carrier and substrate configurations.

E84 Test Plan changes

  • Synchronized timeout values in the E84 test plan and CCS Envoy-generated supplier spreadsheets to ensure equipment configuration information is complete.

E87 Test Plan changes

  • Added new test cases to more thoroughly validate carrier recreate functionality.
  • Reduced test setup effort by providing improved default configuration values for factory and equipment criteria.
  • Expanded the test plan to accommodate different implementations of cancel bind scenarios.

E90 Test Plan changes

  • Modified the expected behaviour within the operational scenarios to account for processing a subset of the wafers in a carrier.

CCS Test Plan version information

The CCS Test Plans support multiple versions of the SEMI standards. We release new versions of the CCS Test Plans when changes to the standards affect the CCS Test Plans.

What's new in this release

Operating system support

The platform has been upgraded to support Microsoft Windows® 7 (32-bit and 64-bit) along with Microsoft Windows® XP (32-bit). Microsoft Windows® 2000 is no longer supported.

E87 Test Plan changes

SEMI E87 publication July 2009 (E87 0709)

  • Support testing the new AccessModeViolation alarm trigger caused by the manual removal of a carrier from a load port in auto mode. Previously E87 did not describe the situation where sometimes an operator removes the carrier without switching the tool to manual mode.
  • Support testing CancelCarrierAtPort to conform to the clarifications made in the SEMI standard as to its behaviour. The CancelCarrier service was defined in detail with assumptions being made about what parts of this service definition applied to CancelCarrierAtPort. This leads to inconsistent implementations of this service.

Customer Requests

  • Expanded the existing content map verification to test that the content map sent from the equipment is not only the correct structure but also contains valid Substrate IDs.

E40 Test Plan changes

SEMI E40 publication July 2009 (E40 0709)

  • Support testing clarifications to the PRJobSetStartMethod. In previous versions of E40, the expected behaviour was not clear when the specified job was not in the QUEUED/POOLED state.

All CCS Test Plans

No changes were required based on the updates made in the SEMI 1109 publication.

CCS Envoy

We have enhanced and improved our licensing infrastructure. We have also resolved bugs related to results annotation as well as configuration.

CCS Test Plan version information

The CCS Test™ Plans support multiple versions of the SEMI standards. We release new versions of the CCS Test Plans when changes to the standards affect the CCS Test Plans.

CCS Test Plans: E94 Test Plan bugs

Issue Number Brief Description
4782, CRM Case: CAS-1018-JB1R62 Resolved the issue where the E94 SetupName default data had the wrong format. Changed the E94 Equipment Constant SetupName ECID from a default value of U2 to U4 in the E94 Control Job Management Unit Test (R015.00.0200A-0705).

Frequently asked questions

Q: What is on your roadmap for the CCS Product Suite?

A: Now that we have focused a release on fixing known issues with CCS Envoy, we will look into customer suggestions regarding additions and improvements to the CCS Test Plans. Standards testing with CCS Envoy is an important part of our overall test applications product strategy. CCS Envoy, combined with our dynamic scenario test application, PEER Factory Acceptance Tester (PFAT™), provides proven standards testing and advanced dynamic scenario testing capabilities. Our strategy is to combine the capabilities of both products into a single test application product. A single test application will allow CCS Envoy users to continue to use their proven CCS Test Plans with the new PFAT user interface. Users can then incorporate portions of CCS Test Plans into dynamic operational scenarios.
