Simply click on the Import Events link on the Events page. The intent is to collect enough information to give the host insight into how a tool is performing and sufficient supervisory control to remotely manage product processing, so that operator presence is not always required on the factory floor. Usually the host side of a connection is executing on a computer system provided by the factory, and the equipment side of a connection is running on a controller computer provided by the equipment manufacturer. Specifically, the dongle contains intelligence that processes instructions received from a device, such as a handheld device or personal computer. This is the value of standards and true interoperability - the factory is not restricted to using a proprietary operating system or buying a proprietary interface package provided by the equipment vendor. You can also add hard-coded responses to messages that do not exist in the simulator.
The values of these data items are passed in specific message types such as data collection event reports. Often both protocols are supported. User information generated from the user interface may be received and transformed into machine control command instructions using a markup language schema and sent to a fabrication machine, via a wireless dongle physically attached to the machine. Determines the address of the remote entity to which the local entity will attempt to connect. For an example see the section above:: class SampleEquipment secsgem. Tags may be used to mark a section of a document with a formatting command.
Specifies the amount of time which must elapse between successive attempts to connect to a given remote entity T6 Control Transaction Timeout 1-240 secs 5 secs Control Transaction Timeout. For example, the process may include the steps of deposition, diffusion, metallization, ion implantation and photolithography. Event Reporting Event report messages enable the equipment to inform the host of the passage of an event such as the completion of processing or a change in status. Alarm and event report messages that originate from the equipment can be mapped or filtered before passing them on to general monitoring software. When equipment send illegal messages or invalid formats, host will fire an error to notify the host application.
Dongle 101 may transmit the response to smart gateway 103 and smart gateway 103 may forward the received response as a user interface to devices 104, 105. The mental picture of one controlling program running on a single computer with immediate, synchronized access to all relevant information is simplistic and wrong. Sending an S1F17 message to the simulator will move it back into an online state. See the section for more details. Operating system 202 may serve applications to wireless devices 101.
In these cases, it you will need to capture the output of an actual tool's response to a message or know the exact format of the response. When control states change, an S6F11 report message is sent with the updated control state. Each machine performs a specific step and may be programmed by a machine operator. For example, the response may include an acknowledgement of the received instruction, an indication that the instruction has been completed, or a list of machine instructions that machine 102 may execute. Net does the interpretation and parsing of the raw messages and represent it in a human readable structure.
Acknowledgement from our EnableAlarm false - Disable all alarm if e. This makes it possible to send multiple messages of any Stream and Function without waiting for each reply before sending the next message, and still be able to correlate reply messages that are received asynchronously, or received out of order. Specifies the time which a control transaction may remain open before it is considered a communications failure. If the air pressure was restored, the alarm clear condition message would be sent. If there were no errors during import, you will be returned to the Simulator Variables page. The system of claim 11 further comprising: storing means for storing a translation table for converting the processed user input to machine control command language. The user interface may also control safety limits.
To add a new event, navigate to the Event Runs page and click on the More menu to the right of the event run that you wish to add events to. Net compliant and event-driven environment. Precision in the time of data collection between various sensor readings and synchronization of the data collection with process initiation needs to be planned for and designed into the control system from the beginning to support accurate, precise reporting. This term is a misnomer, since these values are not constant - these are values that the host is able to change within limits specified by the equipment. A convention exists for the Function values used in message conversations.
This is a desirable feature because it lets the host use the same dynamic event reporting mechanism and software logic to capture alarm conditions and context data. Delay The delay in seconds from the last event until this event fires. With 20 years experience in Semiconductor interfacing we're here to help. Interface 405 is based on standard browser conventions and may be manipulated similarly as interface 400. It is a common practice that a connection is maintained for long periods of time and only interrupted if the equipment or host is rebooted.
An Event Run consists of one or more events, with each event containing a S6F11 message that will be sent to the simulator when the event fires. The smart gateway is capable of managing communication to and from fabrication machines. Import Parameter Description Datasource The datasource to pull events from. For example, it can be used to communicate the validation result for a process program as an asynchronous event after the process program has been downloaded. A message may be sent with or without expecting a reply message. For example, wireless dongle 101 may be connected to machine 102 through a parallel port. The host shall be prohibited from modifying any equipment constants that affect processes, remote commands that cause physical movement or which initiate processing.
The system of claim 12 further comprising: receiving means for receiving the machine control command language instructions in a fabrication machine; and executing means for executing the machine control command language instructions on the fabrication machine. Inherit from this class and override required functions. Displayed data can easily be saved to files for later review. This gives the flexibility needed to share control of the equipment with an automation interface. System 100 comprises a number of devices, such as wireless dongle 101, machine 102, computer 104 and wireless client 105 all electronically connected to smart gateway 103. Determines the address on which the local entity will listen for incoming connection request.
