  • Simultaneously transfers a panel with its data
  • Automatically changing production with multi-vendors

“SEMI SMT-ELS (Surface Mount Technology - Equipment Link Standards)” is the Standards suite for SMT assembly line that replaces SMEMA interface and adds data communication capabilities to make assembly line smarter.


Why need new communication standards in SMT line?


  • Data and material separately   ・・・ IO signals(SMEMA)
  • Many communication protocol ・・・   Special protocols


  • Transfer a panel and data simultaneously
  • Easily communicate with multi vendors

How to implement SEMI SMT-ELS interface?

“Easy and minimum cost” to implement SEMI SMT-ELS for existing machines.


  • Convert SMEMA to SEMI SMT-ELS
  • Support machine interface for automatically changing production

What advantage to use Siemens products?

  • SEMI SMT-ELS interface libraries free of charge
  • Support a machine interface for automated production change with TCP/IP
  • Easy parameter set and commissioning without engineering tool using web server
  • No.1 PLC global market share and many users in the world, Global service over 200 countries
