Abstract

Disclosed is a rack to hold chip carriers during a cleaning (e.g., plasma) process. The chip carriers are held in opposing rails with "V" slots, as shown in Fig. 1. Several rails are held together to form a rack, as shown in Fig. 2. The benefit of the "V" slot is to maximize the cleaning area and minimize staining. This is achieved since the "V" slot makes line contact only with the edge of the product, leaving the entire functional surface exposed to the cleaning process.

      Disclosed is a rack to hold chip carriers during a cleaning
(e.g., plasma) process.  The chip carriers are held in opposing rails
with "V" slots, as shown in Fig. 1.  Several rails are held together
to form a rack, as shown in Fig. 2.  The benefit of the "V" slot is
to maximize the cleaning area and minimize staining.  This is
achieved since the "V" slot makes line contact only with the edge of
the product,  leaving the entire functional surface exposed to the
cleaning process.

      Spacing of the Rails can be adjusted to allow various product
sizes, and the design incorporates a thin profile to keep size at a
minimum.

      The Top Stop is removable to aid in loading and unloading
product, as shown in Fig. 3.  The Bottom Stop holds the chip carriers
in the Rack and is not removable (Fig. 3).
