TORONTO, Canada—(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 the selection by CEITEC S.A. to deploy Eyelit Manufacturing™ in its design center and manufacturing facility in Porto Alegre, Brazil.
CEITEC S.A., which is linked to Brazil’s Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation, designs and manufactures analog, RF and mixed-signal integrated circuits. Its design center uses advanced tools to develop highly complex semiconductor products. CEITEC’s operation is the first of its kind in Latin America.
As an emerging company, CEITEC was attracted to the low cost of entry for Eyelit’s technologically advanced MES software. CEITEC observed that a large number of research consortiums are already running Eyelit’s software in front-end wafer fabs.
Eyelit’s solutions operate on platform-neutral Java technology, which allows for lower-cost infrastructure options. The system is designed for out-of-the-box implementation by end-users without the need for customization or a large IT team for ongoing support.
“CEITEC was impressed with the range of large and small semiconductor facilities which have implemented Eyelit’s solutions around the globe. It was extremely important to start quickly and be able to ramp production in a short timeframe,” stated Cristiano Krug, Superintendent of Research and Development at CEITEC.
"Eyelit’s customer base now spans five continents and 17 countries as the company continues to expand globally, and Eyelit’s software is supported in multiple languages, including double-byte character sets. Eyelit is rapidly gaining market share in both front-end and back-end segments of the semiconductor industry, including fab, assembly/test, and wafer level packaging. We are very happy to include CEITEC as one of Eyelit’s customers," stated Dan Estrada, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing at Eyelit.
CEITEC S.A. is a public company linked to the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MCTI) that develops solutions for automatic identification (RFID and smartcards) and specific applications (ASICs). The company designs, manufactures and markets integrated circuits for applications, such as animal identification, medical products, blood products, people and vehicles, besides authentication, inventory management, asset tracking, among others. Located in Porto Alegre, CEITEC S.A. plays a strategic role in the development of the microelectronics industry in Brazil.
Eyelit Inc. is the leader in Manufacturing Execution and Quality Management (MES and QMS) solutions for visibility, control, and coordination of manufacturing operations for the aerospace & defense, electronics, semiconductor, and solar industries. Eyelit uniquely delivers a broad set of manufacturing solutions, including Asset Management (Semi E10, SEMI PV2-0709), Dispatching, Factory Integration (Automation), Manufacturing Execution (MES/MOM), Recipe Management, Supply Chain Management, Quality Management (CAPA/OCAP/SPC/APC/RMA), and Business Process Management, that enable its customers to rapidly and cost-effectively optimize production and company processes.
