ROUND ROCK, Texas -- DuPont Photomasks Inc. today (July 31) announced the introduction of an automated photomask order processing solution designed to speed up cycle times to semiconductor manufacturers.
X-Change is built on proprietary software developed by DuPont Photomasks. To date, DuPont Photomasks' X-Change has reduced order entry processing time from an average of 1 hour to approximately 10 minutes, resulting in the ability to more rapidly manufacture photomask orders and reduce time to market.
Until now, photomask manufacturers offering order processing automation typically required their customers to utilize the SEMI P10 standard. SEMI P10 is a recognized standard electronic order format adopted primarily by larger semiconductor companies with the internal IT resources to facilitate implementation of the photomask order standard.
