SEMI PV55 - Data Definition Specification for a Horizontal Communication Between Equipment for Photovoltaic Fabrication System
This Standard was technically approved by the Photovoltaic – Automation Global Technical Committee. This edition was approved for publication by the global Audits and Reviews Subcommittee on August 25, 2014. Available at www.semiviews.org and www.semi.org in April 2015.
The purpose of this Specification is to define a standard description of data, to be exchanged on an interface for horizontal communication between adjacent PV equipment.
XML and XML schemas are common and widely used techniques to describe data structures. This proposal uses these methods to describe data structures for crystalline and thin film equipment.
This Standard applies to data exchanged between all PV equipment which provides a standardized description of interfaces for horizontal communications.
This Standard is compliant with the definitions from SEMI PV35.
