26 May 2017
Texas Instruments Incorporated, incorporated on December 23, 1938, designs, makes and sells semiconductors to electronics designers and manufacturers across the world. The Company operates through two segments: Analog and Embedded Processing. As of December 31, 2016, the Company had design, manufacturing or sales operations in more than 30 countries.
The Company's Analog segment's product line includes High Volume Analog & Logic (HVAL), Power Management (Power), High Performance Analog (HPA) and Silicon Valley Analog (SVA). HVAL products support applications, such as automotive safety devices, touchscreen controllers, low-voltage motor drivers and integrated motor controllers. HVAL products include high-volume integrated analog products for specific applications and high-volume catalog products. Power products include both catalog products and application-specific standard products (ASSPs), which are designed to manage the efficiency of powered devices using battery management solutions, portable power conversion devices, power supply controls and point-of-load products. HPA products include high-speed data converters, amplifiers, sensors, interface products and precision analog products that are used in systems that require high performance. SVA includes a portfolio of industrial, high-voltage power management, data converter, interface and operational amplifier catalog products used in manufacturing a range of electronic systems. SVA products support applications, such as video and data interface products, high voltage power conversion, and mobile lighting and display systems.
The Company's Embedded Processing segment's product line includes Processor, Microcontrollers and Connectivity. Processor products include digital signal processors (DSPs) and applications processors. DSPs perform mathematical computations to process digital data. Applications processors are designed for a specific class of applications, such as communications infrastructure and automotive (infotainment and driver assistance systems). They are also sold into industrial applications. Microcontroller products include self-contained systems with a processor core, memory and peripherals that are designed to control a set of specific tasks for electronic equipment. Connectivity products include products that enable electronic devices to connect and transfer data. Connectivity products support various wireless technologies to meet requirements, including low-power wireless network standards, such as Zigbee and other technologies, such as bluetooth, wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi) and global positioning system (GPS). The Company is also engaged in smaller product lines, such as DLP products (primarily used in projectors to create high-definition images), certain custom semiconductors known as application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) and calculators.
