MUNICH, Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ELECTRONICA -- Texas Instruments
Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today unveiled WEBENCH^® Schematic Export, a
new online tool that exports analog designs from TI's WEBENCH Design Center to
industry-leading computer-aided design (CAD) development platforms from
Cadence Design Systems, Inc., Mentor Graphics and Altium. For more information

WEBENCH Schematic Export will be demonstrated in TI's booth #420 in Hall A4,
at the Electronica trade show in Munich, Germany, November 13-16.

Engineers worldwide have used TI's award-winning WEBENCH tools to quickly
create more than two million designs cost-free since its introduction by
National Semiconductor in 1999. While the tools dramatically simplified and
sped the design process, the time for engineers to export a design to their
licensed CAD development platform was tedious and time-consuming. Developed by
TI, and in cooperation with the makers of the CAD development platforms,
WEBENCH Schematic Export now enables the engineer to instantly export these
dynamically created power and LED lighting designs to a variety of platforms,
such as Cadence OrCAD Capture CIS, Mentor Graphics DxDesigner and Altium
formats such as Altium Designer. Watch a video at www.ti.com/webenchex-prv.

"Engineers know that TI's WEBENCH tools considerably reduce the time to create
power and LED lighting designs," said Chris Donato, AltiumSales Director,
Americas. "With the addition of WEBENCH Schematic Export, the engineer no
longer needs to manually enter the design into the CAD platform, nor is there
a need to worry about errors made in the process. Now, designs created with
WEBENCH Schematic Export easily and expertly convert to Altium Designer in

Key features of WEBENCH Schematic Export:

  oA designer can quickly optimize and export a power supply design created
    with TI's WEBENCH Power or LED Designer or a complete power supply system
    created with WEBENCH Power or LED Architect via WEBENCH Schematic Export
    to one of five CAD development platforms.
  oDesign performance can be simulated in WEBENCH Designer and Architect
    prior to export.
  oWEBENCH Schematic Export is supported with schematic symbols for more than
    30,000 components.
