This Standard was technically approved by the global Physical Interfaces & Carriers Technical Committee. This edition was approved for publication by the global Audits and Reviews Subcommittee on August 30, 2012. Available at www.semiviews.org and www.semi.org in September 2012; originally published June 2011; previously published March 2012.


The purpose of this Document is to establish basic physical dimensions for the carriers intended to be used to transport and ship 450 mm wafers, as specified by SEMI M74.


This Document is intended to define the reference planes for the dimensions of the carriers and the load port features that will interact with the carriers.


This Document is intended to define a set of requirements to ensure interoperability of load ports and carriers without limiting innovative solutions.
