Standards New Activity Report Form (SNARF)
Date Prepared: 10/29/2013Revised (if Applicable):

Document Number: 5676
SNARF for: Line Item Revisions to SEMI E83-0413, Specification for PGV Mechanical Docking Flange

Originating Global Technical Committee: Physical Interfaces & Carriers
Originating TC Chapter: North America
Task Force (TF) in which work is to be carried out: International 450 mm Physical Interfaces & Carriers
Note: If a new task force is needed, also submit a task force organization form (TFOF)

___________________________________________________________________________
1. Rationale:
a. Describe the need or problem addressed by this activity.
(Indicate the customer, what benefits they will receive, and if possible, quantify the impact on the return on investment [ROI] if the Document is implemented.)
Because weight of PGV increased for 450mm, it revise a precondition.


b. Estimate effect on industry.
4: Slight effect or effect not determinable
Sector or Company Information:

c. Estimate technical difficulty of the activity.
I: No Difficulty - Proven concepts and techniques exist or quick agreement anticipated

___________________________________________________________________________
2. Scope:
a: Describe the technical areas to be covered or addressed by this Document development activity. For Subordinate Standards, list common concepts or criteria that the Subordinate Standard inherits from the Primary Standard, as well as differences from the Primary Standard:
R1-10 The docking flange should sustain docking impact for the lifetime of the flange without any performance degradation.
Assume 300mm:90kg (200lb), 450mm:120kg (265lb) PGV moving at 0.3m/s (1ft/sec)
Assume 250,000 docking cycles within a flange lifetime
Recommended to design for 3x safety factor for single docking cycle
Note: this PGV mass referenced here assumes a 450mm FOUP or MAC. PGVs designed for different payloads will have a different mass and the design of the docking flange should be adjusted if needed.


b: Expected result of activity
Revision to an existing Standard/Guideline

4. Liaisons with other Global Technical Committees/TC Chapters/Subcommittees/TFs:
a.
List global technical committees, TC Chapters, subcommittees, or task forces in your or other Regions/Locales that should be kept informed regarding the progress of this activity. (Refer to SEMI Standards organization charts and global technical committee charters as needed.)


b. Intercommittee Ballots:


Identify the recipient global technical committee(s):

5. Safety Considerations:
The resulting document is expected:
NOT to be a Safety Guideline

NOTE FOR "to be a Safety Guideline": When all safety-related information is removed from the Document, the Document is NOT technically sound and complete - Refer to Section 14.1 of the Regulations for special procedures to be followed.

NOTE FOR "NOT to be a Safety Guideline": When all safety-related information is removed from the Document, the Document is still technically sound and complete.

6. Intellectual Property Considerations:
a. For a new Standard or Safety Guideline and for any part to be modified or added in a Revision of published Standards and Safety Guidelines:
the use of patented technology or a copyrighted item(s) is NOT required

If "patented technology is intended to be included in the proposed Standard(s) or Safety Guideline(s) " is selected above, then also check one:


b. For Revision, Reapproval, Reinstatement, or Withdrawal of existing Standard(s) and Safety Guideline(s):


c. The body of the Document and any Appendices, Complementary Files, Related Information sections, or Various Materials that may or may not be a part of the Document by reference:
will NOT include copyrighted material



NOTE FOR "the use of patented technology or a copyrighted item(s) is NOT required": If in the course of developing the document, it is determined that patented technology or copyrighted item(s) must be used to comply with the standard or safety guideline, the provisions of Section 15 of the Regulations must be followed.)

NOTE FOR "will include reproduced copyrighted material": A copyright release letter must be obtained from the copyright owner.
