NOTE: The complete Specification for this product includes all general requirements of SEMI E30.

This Document establishes a Specific Equipment Model (SEM) for Metrology equipment (MSEM). The MSEM consists of equipment characteristics and behaviors that are applicable to this class of equipment and are required to be implemented in addition to the SEMI E30 fundamental requirements and additional capabilities.

The scope of this Document is limited to defining the behavior of Metrology equipment as perceived by a SEMI Equipment Communications Standard 2 Message Content (SECS-II) host that complies with the SEMI E30 model. It defines the view of the equipment through the SECS II link. It does not define the internal operation of the equipment. It includes a specific processing state model as the basis for all equipment behavior of this class.

This Document assumes that the SEMI E30 fundamental requirements and all additional capabilities except those noted in SEMI E30 Capabilities Section in this Document have been implemented on the MSEM equipment. This Document expands the SEMI E30 Standard requirements and capabilities in the areas of the processing state model, collection events, Process Program management, remote commands, data item variables, and coordinate systems.
