Agileo Automation SECS/GEM library available under Linux
Agileo Automation has validated on Linux operating system (Ubuntu 12.04) his SECS/GEM software library to communicate between a semi-conductor equipment and a MES. As the library is written in pure C# without Microsoft Windows specific code, it has been straightforward to run the library and its tester under Linux using Mono, an open-source implementation of Microsoft's .NET Framework.
Using Mono API it is possible to interface Agileo Automation SECS/GEM library with a pure Linux application written in plain C to :
- Send Collection Events
- Update Status and Data Variables
- Set/Reset Alarms
- Receive Remote Commands
and access all features supported by Agileo Automation SECS/GEM library through a custom C# wrapper.
A sample integration project on Linux has been developed.
