Finally! The solution every field technician and equipment owner needs to quickly locate and resolve signal anomalies, dropouts and glitches that cause E84 handoffs to fail. This next generation recording device is a small self-contained unit that inserts between the passive equipment and PI/O transceiver to capture and write E84 handshakes to its non-volatile memory. Its internal memory provides the capacity to store up to 50 FOUP handoffs. To extend its recording capacity, it can be configured to use its built-in diagnostics filtering. With diagnostics filtering enabled, the E84 DLD ignores good handoffs and writes only failed handoffs to its internal memory. Get Control's (GCI) industry leading diagnostic software, E84 Analysis, is included with this tool.

Factory automation is used extensively in 300mm semiconductor fabrication facilities. 300mm process equipment utilizes standard load ports with integrated E84 electrical interfaces to transfer material to and from Automated Material Handling Systems. GCI's E84 Data Logging Device (DLD) provides a compact solution to non-intrusively monitor and log the E84 handshake associated with 300mm material handoff operations. Coupled with GCI's Data Recorder Application program, the E84 Data Logging Device is an indispensable tool to capture, analyze and resolve E84 handoff problems without interrupting the work stream.


  • Connects directly between the tool and optical transceiver
  • No external power source is required
  • Non-intrusively senses E84 interface signals
  • Logs more than 50 handoff operations to non-volatile memory
  • Time- and date-stamps all logged data
  • Uploads logged data to PC and GCI E84 Handheld Tester
  • Wrap-around recording keeps the most recent handoffs in memory
  • Real-time graphing on GCI E84 Handheld Tester and PC
  • Compatible with GCI E84 Analysis Application
  • Optional diagnostic filtering to log only failed handoffs
  • Optionally log first valid load/unload, only failures thereafter
  • Statistically log the number of successful and failed handoffs

Installation of the E84 Data Logging Device is simple. Disconnect the optical transceiver's DB-25 from its interface location on the top of the tool. Plug the DLD's DB-25 labeled "Load Port" into the tool's DB-25. Plug the optical transceiver's DB-25 into the DLD's DB-25 labeled "Optical Transceiver". Connect a serial cable between the DLD and a PC or E84 Handheld Tester and configure the DLD. After configuration, disconnect the PC or Handheld Tester from the DLD.

The DLD instantly starts logging all E84 transactions. Logged transactions can be uploaded at any time by connecting a PC or Handheld Tester to the DLD's serial port. Additionally, you can monitor the signals in real-time using a PC or Handheld Tester without interrupting the handoff operation.
