NOTICE: This Document was reapproved with minor editorial changes.
To provide a minimal set of guidelines for the quantitative determination of a method detection limit (MDL) from data supporting a SEMI Process Chemicals or Gases specification.
This Guide applies to trace contaminants specified in SEMI Process Chemicals or Gases Standards and Guides. All relevant trace contaminants should have an MDL determined from a regression analysis of a calibration curve that is equal to, or less than, their specifications. This Guide is intended for use in both establishing new Specifications within SEMI as well as verification of performance to SEMI Specifications.
