I wish we could get our hands on more pictures. Obviously fabs are kind of squeamish about photography of the operation, and I was pleasantly surprised that TI provided these few shots.

@dylan.mcgrath, Thanks for the photos. Why can't you accompany some ee-time readers next time you go :). I am sure watching chip manufacturing unit will be unique experience for all of us.

The clean room pictures are quite interesting to see.Are ceiling lights LED lights? Floor tiles are so good. The automatic conveyors looks charming.

TI has the ambition to be the leader in analog market. Yep it is already, but it seems they would like to expand even further! How terrible it is after it totally monopolize the market. Only-TI-analog era is coming!

Yep those are all our tools.. T.I. would have saved a boat load of money just keeping them in virginia. They could have purchased the buildings and everything else for an additional 12 million. As far as cutting edge...no, those tools will only perform to about 35nm critical dimension without a signifcant upgrade to the steppers.. at 65 million each.

Hats off to TI for their investment in the USA for a fab build-out. Their analog portfolio along with large format wafer site will for sure give them a competitive costing edge over the competition.... that is what business is all about!

TI folks were kind of cagey about the number of employees. Initially they said they would hire 250 (in 2009). They are still hiring. All I could get the fab manager to say is that there are hundreds of people on site, including contractors and full time employees.

There were more than pictures with the article... actually over four paragraphs of text. Might help to actually read the article before spamming a political slant.
