Eyelit Inc., a manufacturing software provider for visibility, control and coordination of manufacturing operations for the aerospace and defense, discrete electronics, semiconductor and photovoltaic industries, says that CaliSolar, an upgraded metallurgical-grade silicon solar cell provider, has selected Eyelit's manufacturing software suite to support PV production in its new facility in Sunnyvale, Calif.
Eyelit's solutions will be used to track, monitor and provide product visibility of material, starting with raw silicon and including ingot, brick, wafer and PV solar cell production, along with control over CaliSolar's equipment and other key assets. CaliSolar will utilize Eyelit's FactoryConnect middleware for factory automation and direct tool connectivity.
In addition, Eyelit's Asset Management will provide tool monitoring, management of calibration and preventative maintenance, as well as built-in warnings, alerts, maintenance operations and tasks focused on higher utilization of equipment. CaliSolar also plans to implement Eyelit's quality management for real-time statistical process control and deviation management.
