SEMI International Standards
Task Force Organization Form (TFOF)

Task Force Name: Photovoltaic –Equipment Interface Specification (PV-EIS) TF

Global Technical Committee: Automated Test Equipment
Originating Technical Committee Region: Japan

1. Charter:

Study and development of standards for equipment communication interface for photovoltaic (PV) production systems.
The study will lead the standards optimized to reduce costs with well-fit definitions to the requirement of real manufacturing operation.
This task force is liaison part of European PV – EIS Task Force.
Note: Global Task Force needs to be established

2. Scope:
Development of standards on communication interface between equipment and factory for PV manufacturing.
Initial focus is to study SEMI PV2 standard to propose improvement.
SEMI PV2 has been standardized by European PV Committee.
Japan PV Committee needs to examine the definitions in the standard whether they fit well to the real applications.
This task force will take role of the examination and to propose improvement of the standard if any.
