On August 27, 2018, SemiMedia reported on Texas Instruments' expansion plan in Richardson. Texas Instruments supplemented the program yesterday, announcing the types of products the new plant used to produce and other details about the plant.

Texas Instruments said the new facility to be built in Richardson will be used for 300mm analog semiconductor wafer fabrication. The total investment amount is 3.1 billion US dollars, with a total area of 870,000 square feet. Upon completion, the new plant is expected to create more than 488 jobs.

“We chose Richardson for our next 300mm analog wafer fabrication facility because it has access to talent, existing supplier bases and multiple airports, and the new factory is close to our existing Richardson facility. This facility is an important step in our investment strategy for 300mm manufacturing capability, which is a competitive advantage for our company and will enable us to continue to provide our customers with good support,” Said Kyle Flessner, senior vice president of technology and manufacturing at Texas Instruments.
