As the de-facto standard in secure remote connectivity, collaboration and service enablement for 300mm semiconductor fabrication, secureWISE also addresses the increased information and complexity requirements in the transition to 450mm.
Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) December 02, 2013
ILS Technology (ILST), a subsidiary of Telit Wireless Solutions, today announced the immediate availability of its industry-leading secureWISE platform for 450mm semiconductor fabrication. The secureWISE suite of products and services is the top trusted third party platform for secure and controlled remote connectivity, collaboration and service enablement in the semiconductor, solar and cleantech industries. Deployed in over 90% of the 300mm semiconductor fabs worldwide, secureWISE is already installed in the majority of research and pre-commercial 450mm facilities to help accelerate the development cycle of the innovative and highly complex new 450mm fabrication processes.
Uncompromising security is paramount when accessing semiconductor or cleantech fabrications, since fab owners are inherently reluctant to allow clean room access to their providers of manufacturing equipment, tools and software – even more so for the leading-edge, expensive and complex 450mm processes and larger wafer sizes.
secureWISE reduces the 450mm development cycle by giving fabs and OEMs secure connectivity and collaboration on 450mm R&D, troubleshooting and pilot runs from anywhere – think of it as “lab to fab”. This can result in an estimated 30% reduction in tool qualification time and 40% savings in support cost during the pre-production phase and beyond.
“As the de-facto standard in secure remote connectivity, collaboration and service enablement for 300mm semiconductor fabrication, secureWISE also addresses the increased information and complexity requirements in the transition to 450mm – both during pre-production and full commercialization,” stated Fred Yentz, President and CEO of ILS Technology. “We look forward to providing the proven secureWISE service to those engaged in the 450mm ecosystem. Our ultimate goal is to reduce the time required to achieve 450mm commercialization through the real-time secure collaboration and remote access to critical data in real-time without the cost of time and travel.”
Throughout the semiconductor industry, secureWISE is recognized as the trusted and secure neutral third party solution. In fact, for many fab owners it has become a prerequisite that OEMs must use secureWISE to access and control equipment in the fab to prevent any compromising, tampering, data leakage, or interruption of the proprietary and expensive semiconductor operations. At the same time, forward-thinking OEMs feature secureWISE as part of their service agreements or to achieve preferred vendor status. Ultimately, both parties benefit from improved service delivery, increased customer satisfaction, improved Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), lower Mean time to Repair (MTTR), while improving the economics due to fewer production stoppages and travel to the site.”
Without the risk of compromising on-going production, security, critical intellectual property or privacy, fab owners can provide role-based access in real-time to tool owners, operators, internal support organizations and external suppliers and business partners. In parallel, suppliers have virtual 24/7 remote access to their equipment – allowing them to perform trouble shooting, routine maintenance, software upgrades, predictive maintenance, and diagnostics from anywhere. secureWISE is offered as a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) managed by ILS Technology, and offered as an subscription-based service. secureWISE takes role-based access control to the application layer assuring protection of confidential data.
Executives from ILS Technology are attending Semicon Japan, held on December 4-6 in Makuhari City, Chiba, Japan. Members of the media and industry analysts are invited for individual briefings and a private dinner meeting on Thursday, December 5.
