Wonderware extends ArchestrA software architecture into APC applications

Wonderware brings its software solutions to semiconductor fabrication with the extension of its ArchestrA software architecture into advanced process control (APC) applications.


Wonderware brings its software solutions to semiconductor fabrication with the extension of its ArchestrA software architecture into advanced process control (APC) applications. The company is demonstrating the solution’s capabilities for semiconductor APC at Semicon West in San Francisco this week, showing its new EDA interface, process client, development client, and a wireless casual user that gives a real-time view of tools and lots being processed.

The company anticipates success with the solution in semiconductor fabrication for a number of reasons, among them, the architecture’s disciplined approach that fits the growing need to technologically and economically expand APC and other semiconductor manufacturers from successful spot applications into a fab-wide solution. Says Mike Bradley, president of Wonderware and ArchestrA business units, “Today, after selected forays into APC, operations managers are discovering the value of transforming real-time data into real-time information. They are challenged, however, to fully integrate the mix of wafer processing tools and local APC software solutions into a cohesive system with the control needed to generate more productivity out of wafer fabs. By integrating the ArchestrA software architecture into APC for semiconductor manufacturing, Wonderware is…helping manufacturers in other industries solve this very same problem.”
