NOTICE: This Standard or Safety Guideline has an Inactive Status because the conditions to maintain Current Status have not been met. Inactive Standards or Safety Guidelines are available from SEMI and continue to be valid for use.


This Standard is intended to unify the interface between process/inspection tools and automated wafer carrier transport systems while maintaining compatibility with human transport.

This Specification deals with the mechanical interface (load port) for wafer carrier transfer between wafer carrier material transport systems, including humans, and wafer fabrication/inspection equipment (tools). The concept defines the placement and orientation of a wafer carrier on a tool to allow reasonable interfacing with mechanized material movement systems without compromising human access to perform the material exchange function.
