SECS/GEM Driver for Equipment Manufacturer

Solution Overview

SecsToHost.Net is a powerful, easy to use and a turnkey SECS/GEM driver that transform your equipment controller into a full GEM compliant machine within the shortest time to market. With its powerful modelling tool and rich library of function calls, the driver handles most of the GEM messages automatically to minimize the time required to complete a fully functional equipment interface. This product is normally used in a greenfield project where the OEM equipment maker wish to incorporate GEM capabilities into their machine.

The SecsToHost.Net software development toolkit (SDK) provides libraries, sample applications, Model Builder and Host SECS/GEM Simulator for software engineers to rapidly develop and deploy communication interfaces on manufacturing equipment. SecsToHost.Net architecture can be easily extended to support other SEMI standards such as PV2, 300mm, etc.

Most of the GEM messages are fully automated/handled within the driver. 


Asynchronous "SendAndWait"

Completely re-design based on .NET Task Based Asynchronous Pattern. The method await for the secondary reply from Host asynchronously without blocking any thread.


Automatically Generate Equipment Reference Manual

See it to believe! With Model Builder, you can generate the full equipment Reference Manual that complies with the SEMI standards.
