About Us TI

For decades, we have operated with a passion to create a better world by making electronics more affordable through semiconductors. We were pioneers in the transition of the world from vacuum tubes to transistors and then to integrated circuits (ICs) – and we’ve been advancing IC technology and the ability to reliably produce ICs in high volumes for decades. Each generation of innovation builds upon the last to make technology smaller, more efficient, more reliable and more affordable – making it possible for semiconductors to go into electronics everywhere. We think of this as Engineering Progress.  It’s what we do and have been doing for decades:

  • The object-detection capability used in a $20 million military radar system from the 1980s is now possible using a $20 radar chip in automobiles everywhere to increase vehicle safety and reduce collisions.
  • Home automation systems that cost tens of thousands of dollars 20 years ago are now only hundreds of dollars.  Today, these systems are more accessible to homeowners  and are making homes safer, more convenient and more energy efficient.  
  • Technology that previously was only used in expensive factory robotic systems is affordable enough to be integrated into home appliances, making  common household tasks, like vacuuming, easier and more convenient.

Our passion to create a better world by making electronics more affordable through semiconductors is alive today as we help our customers develop new applications, particularly in the industrial and automotive markets.  

We design analog and embedded chips

We design, manufacture, test and sell analog and embedded semiconductors that help our nearly 100,000 customers around the globe create differentiated applications in markets that include industrial, automotive, personal electronics, communications equipment and enterprise systems. 

We help customers solve problems

Our broad portfolio of ~80,000 products helps our customers efficiently manage power, accurately sense and transmit data, and provide the core control or processing in their electronic systems. We partner with our customers to understand their toughest challenges, then apply our technology and system expertise and work persistently to overcome barriers and problem-solve.

We manufacture reliable products

We own our global manufacturing facilities so that we can reliably deliver the high-quality products our customers need, when they need them. Across our 14 manufacturing sites worldwide, we operate 10 wafer fabs, seven assembly and test factories, and multiple bump and probe facilities. We invent process and packaging technologies that help build highly differentiated components, which work the way they’re intended to for the lifetime of our customers’ products.

Our ambitions

For decades, we have operated with a passion to create a better world by making electronics more affordable through semiconductors. For many years, we’ve run our business with three ambitions in mind:

  • We will act like owners who will own the company for decades.
  • We will adapt and succeed in a world that is ever-changing.
  • We will be a company that we’re personally proud to be a part of and would want as our neighbor.

When we’re successful in achieving these ambitions, our employees, customers, communities and shareholders all win.
