SECS/GEM software development kit

CIMConnect
SECSConnect is a Component Object Module (COM) library for creating host or equipment software applications using SECS-II messaging over HSMS-SS or SECS-I. For advanced testing, it enables the user to write automated tests in C++, C#, VB.NET and other programming languages. SECSConnect makes it very easy to send and receive SECS-II messages asynchronously and includes built-in queues for incoming and outgoing messages. SECSConnect is compatible with Visual C++, Microsoft Visual Studio .NET, and other IDE that support COM interfaces.

Software to Implement SECS/GEM Communication
Cimetrix CIMConnect
The Cimetrix CIMConnect™ software toolkit provides libraries, sample applications, testing tools, and a GEM Manual template for developing and deploying communication interfaces on manufacturing equipment. The CIMConnect architecture supports the SEMI SECS/GEM, the SEMI PV2 standard and the HB LED standard as well as multiple independent host interfaces with a generic communication abstraction layer.

The CIMConnect toolkit offers:
  • Support for multiple host connections, reducing development time while improving quality
  • The CIMConnect Control Panel is a GUI tool for dynamically configuring, monitoring, and testing equipment interfaces
  • Fully functional GEM communication out-of-the-box
  • Automatic handling for many standard GEM messages
  • Dynamic configuration capability
  • Support for SEMI E173 SECS Message Notation (SMN)
  • Generates an E172 SECS Equipment Data Dictionary 
  • A framework for implementing the SEMI GEM300 standard using another Cimetrix product, the CIM300™ toolkit
  • Testing software is comprised of TESTConnect™ and SECSConnect™

CIMConnect is unique due to its dynamic configuration; making it much easier for you to deploy on variations of equipment types as well as more cost-effective to support entire equipment families. The toolkit offers sample applications to give your team a jumpstart on the development process and is just one of the reasons CIMConnect is so simple to use. Our CIMConnect Control Panel provides real-time insight into the GEM interface for diagnostics, testing, and simulation, which helps in development and deployment. SMN brings the convenience of XML for both designing and using the GEM interface.
