Product Features

CIM Control Framework (CCF) ™ CCF is the framework helping us to build control system for semiconductor or liquid crystal manufacturing equipment using the latest software technology. The framework allow system builder to develop control system software conforming to the latest SEMI Standards in a short period at low cost.

  • By adopting the data-driven architecture, it can handle the high speed data.
  • By adopting service oriented architecture, we realize works of adding or updating each function with highly productivity.
  • The latest programming environment provide us highly efficient environment for your programming work.
  • Fully compatibile with the GEM/GEM300 Standards
  • Fully compatibile with the EDA (Freeze Version II)
  • By adopting the open source softwares, the user yourself can perform the software maintenance (modification, amendment, repairing the malfunction code, etc. )

Easy equipment control

"Facilitate high level equipment control required by the latest FAB"

The framework adopt High speed data driven architecture which Cimetrix has been developed in CIMPortal ™. This knowhow realize high speed data handling within the framework. These features also give us capability to meet the latest user needs for APC, FDC and etc. In addition, since it is a module architecture written in complete object-oriented code in C#, the degree of inter-module coupling is low, and it is easy to add or update each function. Of course, the latest specification required by end user can be easily supported by adding Cimetrix main products GEM/GEM300 and EDA. Furthermore, the source codes of the CCF are open to the user. This is important for quality assurance in the equipment development.
