SEMI M80 - Specification for Front-Opening Shipping Box Used to Transport and Ship 450 mm Wafers
This Standard was technically approved by the Silicon Wafer Global Technical Committee. This edition was approved for publication by the global Audits and Reviews Subcommittee on October 19, 2015. Available at www.semiviews.org and www.semi.org in January 2016; originally published November 2011; previously published May 2014.
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.
