IBM and ILS Technology LLC have formed a non-exclusive strategic alliance to deliver comprehensive e-Diagnostics solutions for the worldwide semiconductor industry.

The joint solutions are expected to enable global and real-time collaboration between equipment manufacturers and chipmakers, even in remote manufacturing locations. The benefits these solutions aim to provide include improved equipment availability, faster equipment installation, reduced downtime, higher throughput and avoidance of test wafers, or wafers that never reach a customer or generate profit.

ILS' e-Centre e-Diagnostics solutions, built on IBM's DB2 database, WebSphere infrastructure software and eServer systems, are currently being deployed in IBM Microelectronics Division's 300mm wafer fabricator. The e-Centre enables tool suppliers and chipmakers to immediately implement the e-Diagnostic solutions based on an open architecture.

Both companies will jointly market and sell e-Centre and ServiceNet. The ServiceNet is an ILS solution based on IBM technology that enables the secure transmission and sharing of data. In all customer engagements, ILS will lead with IBM's hardware and middleware as platforms. IBM, on the other hand, will provide global marketing and integration support for joint IBM and ILS solutions.
