SECS/GEM Driver for Equipment Manufacturer

Solution Overview

SecsToHost.Net is a turnkey SECS/GEM driver that has the ability to quickly transform your equipment controller into a fully GEM compliant machine. It is a powerful and user-friendly solution that includes a robust modelling tool and a comprehensive library of function calls, allowing for automatic handling of most GEM messages. This feature reduces the time needed to create a fully functional equipment interface. Typically, this product is used in new projects where the equipment manufacturer wants to add GEM capabilities to their machine.

For software engineers looking to quickly develop and implement communication interfaces on manufacturing equipment, the SecsToHost.Net software development toolkit (SDK) offers a variety of resources including libraries, sample applications, Model Builder, and Host SECS/GEM Simulator. The architecture of SecsToHost.Net can also be effortlessly expanded to support additional SEMI standards such as PV2, 300mm, and others.

Additional Resources


Features Highlight

SecsToHost.Net SDK include these features:

  • Model Builder - Dynamic configuration tool for creating equipment model (or metadata) such as: machine statuses, events, alarms, commands and many more.

  • Seamless Integration and Intuitive APIs - With most GEM functionalities implemented out of the box makes it easy to enable SECS/GEM to your equipment application without needing much technical or domain skills.

  • GEMStation is an open source GEM application for monitoring and testing the equipment communications interface.

  • SWIFT simulator is a a fast SECS/GEM simulator for testing scenarios and message exchanges between equipment and host.

  • Support for Tester or Handler Equipment (TSEM)
  • Support for Photovoltaic (PV)

  • Run on Windows, IOT and Linux operating systems or EDGE devices.

  • Support 32-bit and 64-bit platform architecture written in .NET Framework, .NET CORE, Visual C++, Visual Basic or National Instrument LabVIEW.

  • Generate SECS/GEM reference manual in WORD format automatically free up significant developer time to write them manually.

Supported Industry SEMI Standards

  • SEMI E4 - RS232 (Serial Port)

  • SEMI E37 - HSMS (TCP/IP)

  • SEMI E5 - SECS-II Message Specification

  • SEMI E30 - Generic Equipment Model (GEM)

  • SEMI E122 - Specification for Tester Equipment Specific Equipment Model (TSEM)


Technical Integration

SecsToHost.Net can be integrated to your equipment controller software easily through programming languages such as: .NET Framework, .NET CORE, Visual C++, Visual Basic or National Instrument LabVIEW.


GEMStation (included in the SDK) is an open-sourced application to help your developer a jumpstart on implementing all the GEM features.
