February 22, 2001–Hsinchu, Taiwan–United Microelectronics Corp. (UMC) announced today the successful implementation of RosettaNet 3D8 and 3D9 product configuration standards using software developed by ecom Software to link to UMC’s backend supply chain partner, Siliconware Precision Industries Ltd (SPIL). By using RosettaNet’s Partner Interface Process (PIP), UMC and SPIL can easily retrieve engineering data and track their wafers through the backend.
“By implementing industry standards for eBusiness, UMC will be able to integrate production monitoring systems among our backend partners, and provide our customers with real-time trouble-free access to our foundry services,” says Ker Wen Teng, UMC’s vice president of Product and Testing Services. “Regardless if it is to view wafer manufacturing, testing and packaging progress, or yield and quality reports, the availability of this information through UMC allows our customers to adjust their production accordingly.”
RosettaNet is a non-profit consortium of more than 350 of the world’s leading electronic components, IT, and semiconductor manufacturing companies working to create and implement industry-wide, open eBusiness process standards.
