Industries Will Display the Latest WaferMate and WaferWare
Software at the SemiconWest 2010 Show
28, 2010 - Anaheim, CA - CHAD Industries announced
today that it will be demostrating the next generation of WaferMate
workcell and WaferWare operating software during the SemiconWest
2010 show in San Francisco next month.
workcell has been redesigned for ease of manufacture while
remaining flexible for rapid customization to meet different
OEM requirements. The redesigned frame and integration components
simplify the assembly process across the WaferMate family. The
design has a specific focus to provide all of the standard feature
sets customers require and is also easily adaptable to new design
features required by our OEM’s to address the latest non-standard
wafer handling challenges. Ultimately the system can provide
enormous flexibility while still maintaining a short build schedule.
CHAD will also be demonstrating the latest WaferWare software
operating system for WaferMate workcells. The WaferWare software
GUI design is based upon SEMI Std E-95, and features simple to
use screens for ease of operator use. The software has been developed
with a focus on flexibility and ease of adapting the WaferMate
workcell to new process challenges, and to reducing the software
development for new applications.
CHAD’s Vice-President of Engineering explains
the importance of the new WaferMate design and WaferWare software “The
new workcell design is important to meet the needs of our OEM
customers for lower cost wafer handler systems with faster delivery
time. The new WaferWare software was developed to provide a simpler,
and more flexible, graphical user interface for our customers.
The GUI design makes it more familiar to new operators, and easier
for technicians to use. This is extremely important as CHAD continues
to penetrate new markets and territories through our OEM customers
and distributors. This combination of mechanical, controls, and
software flexibility truly provides CHAD with a standard platform
to handle non-standard applications”
