SEMI Announces Four Standards to Address Critical Manufacturing Challenges

New Specifications Cover FPD, MEMS and Semiconductor Industries

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - June 23, 2008) - SEMI has published four new technical standards applicable to the flat panel display (FPD), MEMS and semiconductor manufacturing industries. The new standards, developed by technical experts from equipment and materials suppliers, device manufacturers and other companies participating in the SEMI International Standards Program, are available for purchase in CD-ROM format or can be downloaded from the SEMI website,

SEMI Standards are published three times a year. The new standards, part of the July 2008 publication cycle, join more than 770 standards that have been published by SEMI during the past 35 years.

"These SEMI Standards represent a continuation of the work undertaken by the volunteers in the SEMI International Standards Program," said James Amano, director, SEMI International Standards. "The four new specifications provide critical solutions to manufacturing challenges in the FPD, MEMS and semiconductor industries."

The full list of SEMI standards being released include:

SEMI D53-0708
Specification for Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) Pellicles

SEMI D52-0708
Specification for Reference Position of Substrate ID

SEMI MS7-0708
Specification for Microfluidic Interfaces to Electronic Device Packages

SEMI T19-0708
Specification for Device Marking

The SEMI Standards Program, established in 1973, covers all aspects of semiconductor process equipment and materials, from wafer manufacturing to test, assembly and packaging, in addition to the manufacture of flat panel displays, photovoltaic systems and micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS). About 1,650 volunteers worldwide participate in the program, which is made up of 18 global technical committees. Visit for further details about SEMI Standards.
