SEMI E99 - Specification for Carrier ID Reader/Writer
This Standard was technically approved by the Information & Control Global Technical Committee. This edition was approved for publication by the global Audits and Reviews Subcommittee on December 8, 2016. Available at www.semiviews.org and www.semi.org in March 2017; originally published February 2000; previously published July 2010.
The purpose of the Carrier ID Reader/Writer Functional Standard effort is to provide a common specification for concepts, behavior, and services (functions) provided by a Carrier ID Reader and a Carrier ID Reader/Writer to an upstream controller. A standard interface will increase interchangeability of Carrier ID Reader/Writers so that users and equipment suppliers have a wider range of choices.
The Carrier ID Reader/Writer Interface Standard addresses the functional requirements for a generic Carrier ID Reader/Writer interface with an upstream controller.<br>This Specification includes required behavior and required communications for both a Carrier ID Reader and a Carrier ID Reader/Writer.<br>This Specification does not require, define, or prohibit asynchronous messages sent by the Carrier ID Reader or Reader/Writer.
