Further expansion
The opening of RFAB is the most recent in a series of manufacturing expansions by TI. Earlier this year, TI opened Clark, an assembly and test facility in the Philippines. TI also has been installing new test equipment at several other locations, and is in the process of installing newly acquired 200mm manufacturing equipment for analog chip production at sites around the world, including Dallas.

Local education has benefitted from TI's decision to build the fab in Richardson. As part of the original agreement between community and state partners, the nearby University of Texas (UT) at Dallas will receive a total of $300 million from the Texas Enterprise Fund, the Texas General Land Office, the UT System, and private donors for improvement of its engineering and research programs.

"Texas Instruments has been a remarkable partner with education at all levels," said David Daniel, president of UT Dallas. "The impact of the RFAB's creation on UT Dallas has been dramatic in terms of recognition and research activity. This project's high profile played a direct role in our most recent efforts to reach for what many call Tier One statusour aspiration to become a nationally recognized research university. We look forward to partnering with Texas Instruments and the rest of our community as we grow toward this stature in service to the Dallas area and the region."

RFAB has been an important model of green construction. It was the first semiconductor facility to achieve Gold certification with the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program. TI has applied knowledge from the RFAB designs to other facilities all over the world.
