This standard was technically approved by the global Physical Interfaces & Carriers Committee. This edition was approved for publication by the global Audits & Reviews Subcommittee on August 27, 2010. Initially available at in October 2010. Originally published June 2000; previously published July 2004.


NOTICE: This document was balloted and approved for withdrawal in 2010.


This standard specifies the carrier side of the mechanical interface between load ports (or buffers) with FIMS interfaces on process or metrology equipment and a system that includes a box that holds only one wafer (such as a test wafer) and that fits onto an adapter mechanism called a single-wafer interface (SWIF). This system appears to the equipment to be a 300 mm FOUP (except that only the volume around the middle wafer may be accessible).
