SEMI E54.12 - Specification for Sensor/Actuator Network Communications for CC-Link
This Standard was technically approved by the Information & Control Global Technical Committee. This edition was approved for publication by the global Audits and Reviews Subcommittee on January 24, 2014. Available at www.semiviews.org and www.semi.org in June 2014; originally published May 2001; previously published December 2011.
NOTICE: This Document is no longer published with the SEMI E54 suite of Standards. It is published and sold separately.
This Specification is part of the SEMI sensor/actuator network (SAN) suite of Standards and defines a specific communications protocol based on the CC-Link standard. This network communication standard (NCS) taken together with the SEMI SAN Standard suite and the CC-Link standard completely and unambiguously defines an open standard providing an industry specific solution to off-the-shelf interoperability of networked devices in semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
CC-Link is a vendor independent, open device level network standard. Vendor independence and openness are guaranteed by the CC-Link Partner Association.
This Document specifies a SAN communications standard based on the CC-Link specification that is in compliance with SEMI E54.1. As such, it specifies the protocol, services and behavior that compliant intelligent devices must support in order to interchange information over this SAN in a method compatible with SEMI E39.
In conjunction with a SEMI SAN common device model (CDM) specification and one or more SEMI specific device model (SDM) specifications (e.g., for a mass flow controller), this NCS with the related CC-Link standard describe the data structures, interactions and behavior that are characteristic of the various devices on the network. This composite model forms a complete interoperability standard for communications among intelligent sensors, actuators and controllers in semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
