At Texas Instruments, we design, make and sell high-technology components to customers all over the world. Almost all of our business centers around the sale of integrated circuits – also known as semiconductors or "chips" – to electronics designers and manufacturers. We have a very broad product portfolio, which includes chips that are central to almost all electronic equipment.
