In the next generation of semiconductor wafer fabrication facilities, decisions concerning material handling systems will be a major factor in initial facility cost, operational cost, production cycle times, and possibly product yield percentages. The wafers will increase in diameter to 300 mm and a new front opening unified pod (FOUP) has been designed to(More)
This paper concerns the development of a real-time, reconfigurable hardware triggering system that aims to facilitate setting up and capturing of data from nuclear physics experiment done at iThemba LABS in South Africa. This system replaces an analogue triggering system that involved time-consuming configuration tasks of Nuclear Instrumentation Module(More)
In an effort to bring the world of computing to third world countries, Indian-based Simputer Trust has developed a low-cost handheld device. Called Simputer (simple, inexpensive, multilingual computer), the device offers various easy-to-use applications, including banking and data collection. Simputer uses speech-to-text technology and a user interface(More)
Simulation-based wafer fabrication optimization models require extensive computational time to obtain accurate estimates of output parameters. This research seeks to develop goal-driven optimization methodologies for a variety of semiconductor manufacturing problems using appropriate combinations of “resource-driven” (R-D), “job-driven” (J-D), and Mixed(More)
