Cimetrix Announces Commencement of Volume Shipments

Press Release

December 5, 2012

Cimetrix Incorporated, a provider of factory automation and equipment control software solutions for the global semiconductor, photovoltaic, LED, and other electronics industries, announced that a major semiconductor and assembly packaging equipment manufacturer in Japan has released a new system into production. The equipment uses both the Cimetrix CIMConnect and CIM300 software to implement SEMI-compliant SECS/GEM and GEM 300 interfaces. This is a major design win for Cimetrix due to the high-volume program established by the equipment manufacturer and because the customer moved away from one of the Company's major competitors to use Cimetrix's best-in-class software.

“We are pleased to see that even with the economic uncertainties of the past year, we are still winning new designs that go into production. Our OEM customer's equipment deployments are expected to reach semiconductor manufacturing sites worldwide,” stated Dave Faulkner, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Cimetrix. “The design process typically takes a significant amount of time, as customers purchase one of our software development kits (SDK), then design the system, followed by a year or more of testing at beta sites. At that point, the system has to show it is viable in the market, and, if it is, only then will an equipment company decide to initiate full production. Given the substantial capital and resources committed to this process, semiconductor equipment can often remain in production for 5-7 years after full production begins.”

“We expect runtime revenue from these volume shipments will make this customer one of our top five customers. We are also pleased to see growth in the Japanese market where Cimetrix Japan K.K., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cimetrix Inc., has made a significant commitment to build market share,” Faulkner added.
