As digital technology transforms and traverses diverse industries, these capabilities facilitate the digitalization of semiconductor manufacturing. At the start of 2018, Siemens partnered with
“The opportunity for
Think of the digital twin as a virtual representation of the physical device. Using the digital twin to predict performance and analyze physical performance characteristics creates actionable insight to optimize performance and enhance manufacturability.
Product simulation with digital twins compresses new product introduction cycles, reveals disparate legacy systems, eliminates future process errors and improves fabrication outputs. The combination of expertise establishes, molds and revolutionizes digital twin technologies for the semiconductor industry by providing Siemens’ product lifecycle management (PLM) software portfolio to enable BRIDG’s research and development activities. The initial deployment includes the Tecnomatix® portfolio for plant simulation, Camstar™ Semiconductor Suite and Calibre™ Design and Manufacturing Solutions from Siemens’ recent acquisition of Mentor Graphics. The digital enterprise solution allows companies to streamline and digitize business processes, seamlessly integrating suppliers into the mix to more easily identify issues, improve manufacturing throughput, increase product quality, and reduce overall costs across the lifecycle of products from ideation to realization and utilization.
