Physical Concepts

IEP001 - 16.00 Hours

Description

This course provides an overview of the physical phenomenon associated with processes used in the manufacturing of semiconductor devices. Key topics include mathematical manipulation, quantitative measurements, the physical units of time and space, factors that affect motion, energy, and matter, physical laws that define properties of gases, electromagnetism and its effects, wave and particle theory, optical control of light, and equipment and process variables attributed to wafer manufacturing.

This course can be scheduled to meet your specific needs. For more information about this course or to schedule a class for your organization, please contact Knowledge Engineering at (800) 541-7149 or ke@teex.tamu.edu.

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites for this course.

Attendance Requirements

Class attendance is an essential part of the education process and participants in TEEX courses are expected to attend all class sessions and field exercises. This course requires participants to attend a minimum of 80% of the class hours as a component of successful course completion. During the course, your instructor will review any additional attendance requirements, for example a field exercise that cannot be missed.

Recommended

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

Topics

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.
