The full name of EAP is Equipment Automation Program, which is used in the program responsible for controlling materials and controlling the operation of the machine.
It is used for the program responsible for controlling materials and controlling the operation of the machine on the process machine, and exchanges data with the upper system through middleware, such as: MES (Manufacturing Execution System), EDA, SPC.., etc. The SECS/GEM communication protocol is used to collect machine status, material information, formula content, and remote commands. It can be used to control the machine operation to achieve the purpose of automation system integration. Intermediary software programs used to communicate between semiconductor equipment and upper-level systems. In recent years, TPCA has adopted SECS specifications and has additionally formulated SEMI-A3 PCBECI for PCB industry machine equipment based on the characteristics of the PCB industry.
