Eyelit Inc. Announces Membership in Fab Owners Association

Eyelit to Present at FOA Quarterly Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona

January 11, 2007
SAN JOSE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Eyelit Inc., a manufacturing software provider for visibility, control, and coordination of manufacturing operations for the electronics, life sciences, semiconductor and MEMS industries, has announced that it has joined the Fab Owners Association (FOA).

The FOA is a non-profit, international association that comprises manufacturers and suppliers in the semiconductor and MEMS industries. The FOA was conceived to provide a forum for semiconductor manufacturing executives to discuss and act on common manufacturing issues resulting in company-wide efficiencies. The association was founded in 2004 and incorporated in 2005. Current FOA member companies include: AMI Semiconductor, Cypress Semiconductor, Delphi, Fairchild Semiconductor, Freescale Semiconductor, International Rectifier, Intersil, Jazz Semiconductor, MagnaChip, Micrel Semiconductor, NXP Semiconductor, ON Semiconductor, Spansion, and ZMD AG, as well as an additional twenty-five associate members.

Eyelit’s vice president of sales and business development Dan Estrada will speak next week, on January 18th, at the upcoming FOA quarterly meeting to be held at ON Semiconductor in Phoenix.

L.T. Guttadauro, FOA executive director, said, “The FOA’s mission is to bring together semiconductor device manufacturers and technology leaders that can offer immediate benefits and long-term efficiencies to our membership. We are pleased to welcome Eyelit as our newest associate member. Eyelit’s proven innovative technology brings our membership first-hand contact with the next generation of manufacturing software solutions and a forum for influencing future semiconductor manufacturing software strategies.”

“Eyelit has a successful track record of legacy MES systems migrations that help device makers reduce the cost of manufacturing IT and modernize their CIM infrastructures,” stated Dan Estrada. “Eyelit’s innovative framework also cost-effectively adds flexibility and extends the usability of legacy MES applications. Eyelit can dramatically reduce the total cost of ownership of IT systems for semiconductor manufacturers by as much as half of comparable solutions in the market today.”

For semiconductor manufacturers, Eyelit provides:

  • MES for complex WIP/batch tracking, process control anddispatching
  • SEMI E10-compliant Asset Management for facilities and factory asset management and optimization
  • Activity- and standards-based costing for true manufacturing costs
  • CIM Framework and Factory integration hub for Equipment Integration and Material Handling, with Eyelit MES, legacy systems MES, and Enterprise Systems
  • Data collection (manual and automated), SPC, OCAP, and quality management
  • Integrated reticle tracking and management
  • >
  • SMIF/cassette tracking and management
  • Turn-key migration from legacy MES applications
  • Platform independence (Windows, Unix, Linux)
  • Unmatched speed of implementation
  • Lowest total cost of ownership
