I did it three employers ago. They were bought out and then I worked for the buyer for a while. The bottom line is it's a "captive" software package now, for internal use only. It was very flexible and we could do a lot with it but it wound up being used almost exclusively for one type of automation system known as a wetbench. Here's a video of one in operation : MEI Wet Processing - Full Auto Wet Bench[^]. Here's the page about the software : MEI Wet Processing Systems - IDX Flexware Software[^]. There were over a thousand systems installed the last time I checked. Although I am certain a good number of those have been de-commissioned over the years because they have a somewhat limited lifespan. I think there is at least one in just about every major semiconductor manufacturer in the world. I practically lived in clean rooms for about twenty years and I am very glad to be out of that industry.
