THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO SUPERVISORY CONTROL AND DATA ACQUISITION (SCADA)

Learn how to get started building a SCADA solution. A SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system, is designed to collect, analyze and visualize data to help inform actions. We’ve created this guide to highlight the significant benefits of modern SCADA and help you identify the key features of SCADA hardware and software. In this guide we also provide a few tips to help you get started implementing a smart SCADA solution of your own.

WHITE PAPER: ADVANCED ALGORITHMS ENABLE THROUGHPUT

Starting at wafer level, every silicon photonic chip needs to be tested. PI's Fast Multichannel Photonic Alignment (FMPA) controller algorithms were the breakthrough necessary for prober-industry leaders like FormFactor and MPI to deliver tools for fast and economical characterization and validation. For Silicon Photonics (SiPh) test and assembly applications such as wafer probing, alignment time is the primary cost driver. This is true for both engineering probers and even more so for production probers, where uptime and throughput are especially critical. With their advanced autonomous alignment functionality and fab-qualified mechanics, PI photonics alignment subsystems meet the demanding needs of the industry. Hence, they provide unmatched throughput and accuracy not restricted to silicon photonics probing, but including any type of precision optical alignment.
