Revision: SEMI M16-1110 (Reapproved 1121) - Current



This Specification is intended for use in procurement of polycrystalline silicon for growth of electronic grade monocrystalline silicon ingots. Such ingots are sliced into wafers that are subsequently used for the production of semiconductor devices, integrated circuits, and other microelectronic components including microelectromechanical systems (MEMS).

This Specification covers requirements for polycrystalline silicon (poly) used to produce single crystal silicon by either the modified Czochralski (Cz) or float zone (FZ) crystal growth technique for applications in the semiconductor device industry.


Form and dimensional characteristics are the only standardized properties set forth below. A purchase specification may include requirements for additional physical properties as listed in this Specification, together with test methods suitable for determining their magnitudes.
