Texas Instruments (TI) recognized the value of India for global research and development (R&D) as early as in 1985. Initially attracted by the country’s engineering talent, TI established an R&D center in Bangalore, the first global technology company to set up such a facility in the country. The India center has emerged as the company’s biggest R&D center outside the United States. Today, TI commands respect and recognition in India for its talent and innovation, as well as for sowing the seeds of technology in the country. Many of TI’s strategic businesses are integral parts of TI India.
Innovation has been the hallmark of the company since its founding in the US and throughout the 29 years of operating in India. Engineers from TI India have a large number of patents awarded by the US Patent Office, a testimony to their rich talent and skill sets.
TI was amongst the first to recognize the semiconductor market potential in India and in 2006, the company began to focus strongly on the India semiconductor market. Today, with nine sales and applications support operations in 8 cities across India, TI has the largest presence in the country amongst all the semiconductor companies. With close proximity to its customers in India and a wide portfolio of more than 100,000 devices, TI is able to co-innovate with them to develop electronic products for the Indian and global markets.
As a leading technology company, TI helps prepare students around the world for the rigors of system design innovation when they graduate from college. Over the years, TI has worked with universities across India to impart knowledge of semiconductor technology and system design. Today, TI India is closely associated with more than 1000 engineering colleges in the country.
In December 2010, TI set up Kilby Labs in Bangalore as the research program’s first international expansion outside the US. Kilby Labs, named in honor of Jack Kilby, a TI engineer who invented the first integrated circuit in 1958, are focused on innovation in energy efficiency, bio-electronics and life sciences. Kilby Labs bring together some of TI’s brightest minds to focus on breakthrough ideas.
