Learn More About the SEMI PV2 Standard

In 2008, the Photovoltaic Equipment Interface Specification task force decided to use SEMI SECS-II (E5), GEM (E30), and HSMS (E37) standards - which were being used in semiconductor manufacturing - as the foundation for host communication throughout the photovoltaic industry. The result was the new SEMI PV2 standard.

The photovoltaic industry can gain greater efficiency, faster equipment integration, and reduced operating expenses by using the PV2 standard. Once equipment suppliers learn and understand the potential obstacles associated with complying with the new standard, a successful and quality implementation can be efficiently achieved.
