Eyelit's Award-winning Integrated Manufacturing Execution System (MES) Selected by X-FAB Sarawak for High-Volume Production Site in Malaysia

TORONTO --(Business Wire)--

Eyelit Inc., a manufacturing software provider for visibility, control, and coordination of manufacturing operations for the aerospace & defense, discrete electronics, semiconductor, and photovoltaic (solar) industries, announced today that X-FAB Sarawak Sdn. Bhd., part of The X-FAB Group, which is the world's largest specialty fab group for analog/mixed signal silicon wafers, has selected the Eyelit Semiconductor Edition™ MES suite for its 200 mm wafer fabrication facility in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia.

The selection by X-FAB is very significant for Eyelit's continued global expansion of its customer base with more large multinational corporations looking to update their legacy MES and surrounding systems. X-FAB Sarawak had long considered replacing its legacy MES system in its 8-inch specialty foundry fab. The deployment of Eyelit's comprehensive solution will include the following benefits:

  • Reduced risk and costs by using a technologically advanced architecture that can grow with the needs of the factory
  • Elimination of several disparate systems by implementing out-of-the-box features included in Eyelit's software platform
  • Integration with Statistical Process Analysis & Control System
  • Seamless operation with SEMI Integration's STP automation control software to reduce complexity and minimize migration risk in this highly automated manufacturing environment

"Our team did a thorough evaluation, which included a visit to one of Eyelit's customer sites in Asia. During the selection process, we were impressed with the capabilities of Eyelit's oftware suite, and Eyelit's relationships with its customers," stated Mike Young, Chief Executive Officer of X-FAB Sarawak Sdn. Bhd. "The Eyelit platform supports our set of requirements by enabling the consolidation of many systems while maintaining our existing automation for a very cost-effective solution. We felt that Eyelit offered the partnership we were looking for, as well as a next-generation MES with the flexibility and functionality to support our future plans and growth."

"X-FAB's decision to switch from their existing MES solution to the Eyelit MES suite represents another important win for Eyelit. This project will build on our experience in migrating legacy systems, which includes an impressive track record with migrations from other MES solutions," stated Dan Estrada, Eyelit's Vice-President of Sales and Marketing. "Deploying Eyelit's integrated MES and quality management software (to manage experiments and non-conformance) enables our legacy MES customers to dramatically reduce the number of custom systems in their factories. We are excited to work with the X-FAB team, and we look forward to the opportunity to bring our advanced MES software to X-FAB's other global sites."
