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 specifies the front-opening shipping box (FOSB) used to ship 450 mm wafers from wafer suppliers to their customers (typically IC manufacturers), while maintaining wafer quality.

This Standard is intended to set an appropriate level of specification that places minimal limits on innovation while ensuring interoperability at all mechanical interfaces.

This Standard assumes that the 450 FOSB is used in loading raw silicon wafers after inspection in Si suppliers and also used in acceptance and inspection, after which raw silicon wafers are transferred to another carrier at device makers. The 450 FOSB is not intended to be used in IC manufacturing processes. It is recommended that wafers be transferred from the 450 FOSB to a 450 FOUP using automated methods.
