FabTech© is a Microsoft Windows® based utility matrix software package designed by AGI. This information is typically used in the design of the facility, including process piping sizing and requirements, utilities demands, and more!

PROBLEMS? Utilities demands? HVAC design / engineering? Tool fit-up? Process piping sizing? Overall fab design? Facility system size?

ANSWER! AGI's FabTech Utility Matrix Program.

HOW? FabTech uses a database for each project and aggregates and diversifies all utilities, in groups specified by the user. The user generates a tool library to draw from.

2014 Additions >>>
> Provides diversification factors for each utility going to each tool.
> Customizable exhaust types
> DI water report showing makeup rate and AWN size based upon demand.
> Nitrogen report showing nitrogen tank sizes and refill frequencies based upon demand.
> Electrical – A new panel analysis tool has been added.

ABBIE GREGG, PRESIDENT OF ABBIE GREGG, INC. (AGI) INDUSTRY EXPERT WITH MORE THAN 25 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AND AGI’S TOOL INSTALL EXPERT WILL BE ATTENDING SEMICON WEST

SEMICON West: Founded 1971 (2014: 44th year)

SEMICON West is the flagship annual event for the global microelectronics industry. It is the premier event for the display of new products and technologies for microelectronics design and manufacturing, featuring technologies from across the microelectronics supply chain, from electronic design automation, to device fabrication (wafer processing), to final manufacturing (assembly, packaging, and test). More than semiconductors, SEMICON West is also showcase for emerging markets and technologies born from the microelectronics industry, including micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), photovoltaics (PV), flexible electronics and displays, nano-electronics, solid state lighting (LEDs), and related technologies.
