iSystem™ Controller

The Applied iSystem controller is the industry’s only subfab solution that optimizes subfab resource consumption without any risk to process or throughput.

While monitoring tool operation, the Applied iSystem controller collects valuable data that can be used to generate resource consumption reports and greenhouse gas emissions reports among other environmental factors. Each small footprint iSystem controller is capable of supporting up to four tools and is easily installed on both Applied and non-Applied Materials 200mm and 300mm process tools. With more than 3000 tool connections currently installed, manufacturers have reported rapid ROI after using the iSystem controller.
