The charter of the I&C committee is to explore, evaluate, discuss, and formulate consensus based specifications that, through voluntary compliance, will enhance the manufacturing capability of the semiconductor industry. Its scope is limited to exploring and developing standards that pertain to the interface of manufacturing tools to each other, to control computers, or to human operators, for the purpose of transferring commands and data used during the manufacturing process.
"We are very proud of Brian's work in SEMI standards development, and are pleased he is continuing to support the organization with this additional role," commented Dave Faulkner, EVP of Sales and Marketing at Cimetrix. "Cimetrix has been an active SEMI member since 1996, and we have participated in, and held leadership positions in, the development of new SEMI standards. SEMI standards ensure compatibility and inter-operability of semiconductor equipment, and are generated by industry experts with the goal of reducing the time and cost of developing new systems, increasing system reliability, and reducing the time and cost of integrating equipment into the factory. We are confident Brian's leadership position will ensure the North America I&C committee continues their valuable work."
In addition to his new role as the co-chair of the North America I&C committee, Brian will continue his work at SEMI as the co-chair of the North America Diagnostic Data Acquisition (DDA) Task Force, co-chair of the North America GEM 300 Task Force, and chair of the North America HB-LED Software Working Group.
