KINESYS Software provides both Integrated Device Manufacturer (IDM) and Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) customers world-class software products and solutions for advanced wafer and device traceability and process management. KINESYS offers state of the art database technology with a core focus on SEMI standards. KINESYS’ challenge was to make back-end processing failure-free and easy to use for clients while supporting licensing models more adaptable to changing industry needs.
About The Customer
KINESYS Software is an independent supplier of software products and services for factory automation applications in the semiconductor industry. A privately held company, KINESYS is focused on the automation of semiconductor manufacturing “back-end” proce
KINESYS integrates Wibu-Systems’ CodeMeter® into its Assembly Line Production Supervisor (ALPS) flagship product. Originally developed as a wafer mapping application, ALPS features mapping for all kinds of substrates used in semiconductor plants (wafer maps, strip maps, tray maps, etc.), as well as tracking of devices through the multiple processes used in semiconductor assembly and encapsulation. Combining KINESYS’ expertise with Wibu-Systems’ technology delivers a neat solution on a dongle, combining security with license accountability and flexibility, as well as total transparency for end users.

Modular AI Defect Inspection Solution
Smasoft Technology Co., Ltd. is a System Integrator that develops industrial automation software and offers AI application solutions. Its self-developed AINavi-AOI-Seq automated software platform and AINavi-AOI-Semicon AI defect inspection tool have been well-liked and adopted by the semiconductor and electronics industries. Recently, the company was commissioned by a semiconductor equipment manufacturer that manufactures Extreme Ultraviolet Light (EUV) pod inspection machines to implement defect AI inspection features.The EUV pod inspection machines have built-in AOI software, but can only find defective products, not determine what is causing the issue in the manufacturing process. To make products more useful, the semiconductor equipment manufacturer decided to upgrade their EUV pod inspection machines with AI features.According to the customer's request, Smasoft's AI solution must complete the analysis of 380 images for a single pod within two minutes and inspect different materials at the same time. Consequently, multiple sets of AI models (algorithms) were needed for interpretation. In addition, because the solution needed to be installed in a cabinet in the lower half of the machines, the size and configuration of the hardware had to be constrained due to the limited space.To this end, Smasoft would implement two sets of software, AINavi-AOI-Seq, and AINavi-AOI-Semicon, to distinguish the types and locations of defects through AI, and then classify defects by threshold screening. Moreover, the results would be exported into a test report to facilitate identifying the source of the problem.To meet these software requirements, Smasoft needed to purchase a hardware solution with strong computing performance and stable operation. The solution needed to be compact in size and flexible in configuration to overcome physical space constraints.
Leading Player in Taiwan's High Tech Sector
To deal with the IC design industry’s complex supply chain, GUC wanted to employ a flexible and innovative business model, and function as a key design hub that integrates IP providers and IC design partners.However, the company had to first sort out its internal processes. Project status reports proved inaccurate as project information was updated manually every week. Managing product issues required many resources and problem-solving knowledge was neither accumulated nor compiled into a database.GUC needs to continually communicate, coordinate and collaborate with wafer manufacturers, packaging plants, test plants, and other business partners. As such, it requires a comprehensive project management integration platform to handle the intricate internal and external business processes.
