EDA Overview: Characteristics, Benefits, and Applications Presentation by Cimetrix

Industry experts developed the Interface A standards in order to facilitate data acquisition integration and improve data quality. Fabs will use Interface A for APC data gathering and e-diagnostics while the existing SECS/GEM interface will remain intact for MES connectivity. Correct Interface A implementations will have a significant impact on the equipment manufacturer's software architecture to enable full access to necessary data as requested by the International SEMATECH Manufacturing Initiative (ISMI).
