New Automation Technology Committee Formed
In an effort to unify automation standards for the semiconductor, PV, HB-LED, and other related industries, the SEMI International Standards Committee recently approved formation of the new global Automation Technology Committee. The new committee takes the place of the previously existing PV Automation Committee, and its first chapters will be in Europe and Japan.
While the PV Automation Committee was initially created to cater to the specific needs of the PV industry, the Standards developed by the committee are general enough to be applied to additional industries which share common automation requirements. For example, SEMI PV2-0709E - Guide for PV Equipment Communication Interfaces (PVECI) and SEMI PV35-1012 - Specification for Horizontal Communication Between Equipment for Photovoltaic Fabrication System were initially developed for the PV industry. However, programmable logic controller (PLC) manufacturers, during discussion of implementation plans, have noted the generality of the interfaces, and are interested in making generic components which support flow-oriented manufacturing environments in broader industries.
