Texas Instruments Incorporated designs, makes, and sells semiconductors to electronics designers and manufacturers worldwide. Product information Semiconductors are electronic components that serve as the building blocks inside modern electronic systems and equipment. Semiconductors, generally known as ‘chips’, combine multiple transistors on a single piece of material to form a complete electronic circuit. The company has various products that are used to accomplish different things, such as converting and amplifying signals, interfacing with other devices, managing and distributing power, processing data, canceling noise and improving signal resolution. This portfolio includes products that are integral to almost all electronic equipment. The company sells catalog and application-specific standard semiconductor products, both of which the company markets to multiple customers. Catalog products are designed for use by many customers and/or many applications. The life cycles of catalog products generally span multiple years, with some products continuing to sell after their initial release. Application-specific standard products (ASSPs) are designed for use by various customers and are targeted to a specific application. The life cycles of ASSPs are generally determined by end-equipment upgrade cycles and could be as short as 12 to 24 months, although some could be used across multiple generations of customers’ products. The company also sells custom semiconductor products, which are designed for a specific customer to use in a specific application and are sold only to that customer. The company’s products are sold through distribution channels and directly to customers. Segments The company’s segments include Analog, Embedded Processing, and Other. Analog This segment’s semiconductors change signals, such as sound, temperature, pressure or images, by conditioning them, amplifying them and converting them to a stream of digital data that could be processed by other semiconductors, such as embedded processors. Analog semiconductors also are used to manage power in every electronic device by converting, distributing, storing, discharging, isolating and measuring electrical energy, whether the device is plugged into a wall or running off a battery. This segment’s products are used in many markets, particularly personal electronics and industrial. This segment includes various major product lines, such as high volume analog & logic (HVAL), power management (Power), high performance analog (HPA), and silicon valley analog (SVA). HVAL: These include high-volume integrated ASSPs and high-volume catalog products. HVAL products support applications, such as automotive safety devices, touchscreen controllers, low-voltage motor drivers and integrated motor controllers. Power: These include both catalog products and ASSPs that help customers manage power in electronic systems. The company’s portfolio of Power products is designed to improve the efficiency of powered devices using battery management solutions, portable power devices, power supply controls, and point-of-load products. HPA: These include catalog products that the company markets to different customers who use them in manufacturing a range of products. HPA products include high-speed data converters, amplifiers, sensors, reliability products, interface products and precision products that are typically used in systems that require high performance. SVA: These include 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. SVA consists primarily of products that the company acquired through its purchase of National Semiconductor Corporation. Embedded Processing This segment’s products are the ‘brains’ of many electronic devices. This segment’s products are used in many markets, particularly industrial and automotive. This segment includes various major pro
