The subfab in the focus of sustainable semiconductor production
Subfab360 ATC is an innovative software solution developed to increase environmental sustainability in semiconductor production. It makes it possible to reduce energy and media consumption in the subfab area, which leads to a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. Semiconductor manufacturers use the software to control their exhaust gas purification systems and pumps in real time based on data from coating and etching systems. Subfab360 ATC is OEM-independent and offers simple interfaces (e.g. Ethernet) for smooth integration of process equipment and Subfab devices. This Active Tool Coupling (ATC) is already successfully used in volume production of semiconductors to minimize environmental impact while maximizing operational efficiency.
Subfab360 ATC offers powerful functionality for adjusting and optimizing the performance of exhaust gas cleaning systems and pumps.
Use of existing subfab equipment interfaces
Subfab360 ATC uses interfaces from Subfab devices to adjust their performance and operating parameters according to the current process conditions. This includes adjusting the fuel gas requirements of burn-wet systems and media consumption, such as nitrogen, caustic and fresh water.
Use of tool data via Interface A interface
Subfab360 ATC accesses relevant tool data via the Interface A interface to obtain precise information. This includes process gas flows, the status of tools and process modules as well as wafer processing information, including planning for future process steps.
Control of subfab devices
Subfab360 ATC enables special logic and algorithms to be applied to the process tool data to control connected Subfab devices in such a way that energy savings are achieved without compromising production quality.
Subfab360 ATC offers a user-friendly interface (GUI) that provides preset or freely configurable views. This allows operators to easily monitor and analyze the savings and operating status of Subfab devices and processes.
