New Industry Requirements for Clock Synchronization and Time Stamping



Harvey Wohlwend, Ya-Shian Li-Baboud


This presentation will report on the results of an industry working group studying time synchronization. The working group will present new industry requirements as well as guidelines for improving time synchronization and time stamping. Efficient communication of timing information can be achieved by integrating timing standards into current SEMI standards. After an in-depth review of SEMI standards, recommendations on SEMI standards to improve factory and equipment clock synchronization and time stamping will also be described.
