Suggested Audience

The TKDP program, last revised in 2004 by the TEEX for Texas Instruments (TI), is designed to help TI fab technicians grasp the technical aspects of the fundamental processes used to manufacture semiconductor devices. The program provides an overview of many of the scientific principles upon which the semiconductor industry was founded. It is expected that participants who attend these courses will have participated in similar courses in the past and understand that these brief courses are offered as a review and as a refresher.
