CURRENT - Supported by the technical committee.


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 February 6, 2013. Available at www.semiviews.org and www.semi.org in April 2013; originally published November 2008.


This Document specifies 450 mm diameter mechanical handling wafers intended for use in research, development and early design investigation of 450 mm semiconductor equipment such as 450 mm wafers, carriers, load ports, AMHS, and robotics.


This Specification covers dimensional requirements for 450 mm diameter polished silicon wafers. This Specification is intended to address a short-term need for handling wafers. It is not intended to specify wafers used in process development or for technology-specific circuit-quality applications. This Document should be superseded by a process development wafer specification, a prime wafer specification and technology-specific guidelines for circuit-quality wafers.


A complete purchase specification may require that additional physical properties be specified along with test methods for determining their magnitude (see § 5).


Wafers meeting the basic specification requirements herein are suitable for use as "mechanical handling" wafers for equipment set-up and robotic handling applications.


For referee purposes, SI (System International, commonly called metric) units shall be used.
