The semiconductor industry as a pioneer of digitalization

The semiconductor industry sees itself as a pioneer in digitalization and connectivity. Proven standards such as SECS/GEM form a uniform basis for factory operators and machine builders. But the semiconductor industry is also undergoing a transformation. The increasing modernization and automation of factories ensure that IT infrastructures continue to evolve while new technologies take effect.

High level of compliance with relevant standards

Making machines and solutions available in the semiconductor industry requires a high degree of compliance with the relevant standards. Many manufacturers and suppliers offer the industry technologically disruptive approaches, but often fail because of the hurdle of standardization. The applications provided by the kontron susietec® toolset create a decisive advantage here because they combine our many years of expertise in the semiconductor industry with the flexibility of modern software architectures.

Due to flexible interfaces, open integration solutions and smart automation concepts for cluster control, we offer innovative solutions for both production operators and their suppliers. That is how we bridge the gap between operators' requirements and suppliers' technologies.  

Increasing the level of automation and adapting existing IT

Concepts such as AI present new challenges for IT ecosystems that have just increased in size in the semiconductor industry. In particular, the high specifications in terms of data volume and flexibility require alternative concepts. Expanding classic backend factories into fully automated lines with a high product variance requires reaction times of less than one second.

The FabEagle® product series and ToolCommander® control platform from the kontron susietec® toolset provide new architectures with distributed, intelligent and machine-related solutions. By implementing this solution we increase the automation level of the machines and at the same time adapt existing IT within existing infrastructures.
