Course Description

This course provides an overview of elements essential to chemical reactions at the molecular level, use of the periodic table of elements, types of chemical compounds, states of matter, primary gas laws, chemical solutions, effects of temperature on reactions, relationships between acids, bases, and salts. Safety considerations for working with various types of chemistry often found in the wafer processing equipment are also discussed.


There are no prerequisites for this course.

Attendance Requirements

To meet attendance requirements, participants must review each training module and complete all required course assignments, activities, quizzes, and/or end of course exam.


Previous college level course work or work experience is preferred; the TKDP program courses are intended as a review only.

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.
