All semiconductor production equipment is controlled by different types of controllers, computers and dedicated developed software. An appropriate software backup system is very important to predict unscheduled machine downtimes.X-FAB developed and implemented a Software-Backup-Management-System (Software-BMS) based on a database which is able to register all different types of unique equipment computer information (hardware & software). The software images of these systems can also be stored in that data base. Additionally there was developed an algorithm to find the best interval at which backups should be created. With this tool, X-FAB was able to reduce unplanned downtime due to unpredicted data loss, which results in significant lower unplanned downtime due to software issues and in a very short payback period.
Matthias Liebau was born on 15 September 1981 and graduated from high school in 2000. Since 2002 Matthias works for X-FAB in Erfurt. From 2002 to 2005 he was in training for a mechatronics technician. After graduating in 2005, he worked as an equipment technician at the local fab maintenance team. From 2007 to 2011 Matthias also studied mechatronics. Since his final exam in 2011 Matthias works as an equipment engineer at the local equipment engineering team.
