Cyber secure semiconductor production

Increasing digitization and networking have revolutionized the semiconductor production. In view of the various advantages, however, it is important not to lose focus on the fundamental aspect of security. Cyber attacks are a serious threat to companies. For this reason, our motto at AP&S is: A clear and big YES to digitization, but please within a completely secure framework.



Cyber secure wet processes with Windows 10

AP&S wet process tools are safe - that's the promise we make to our customers. System updates, tool uprades, regular information and intensive dialogue with our customers are the cornerstones of this approach. 

To ensure maximum security in accordance with future network requirements, highest reliability and uptime, we recommend our customers with older wet process equipment (regardless of manufacturer) to upgrade to the Windows 10 operating system as soon as possible. If the existing wet process tool already has the Windows 7 operating system, the upgrade to Windows 10 can usually be done without new hardware. If the current operating system of the wet process equipment is older than Windows 7, the installation of a new IPC is necessary. We would be pleased to consult you individually on the subject of Windows 10 upgrade of your production equipment and are at your disposal for further questions regarding cyber security of your wet processes: service@ap-s.de
