Texas Instruments Incorporated engages in the design and manufacture of semiconductors. It operates through Analog and Embedded Processing segments. The Analog segment includes semiconductors change real-world signals, such as sound, temperature, pressure or images, by conditioning them, amplifying them and often converting them to a stream of digital data that can be processed by other semiconductors, such as embedded processors. The Embedded Processing segment involves the handling specific tasks and can be optimized for various combinations of performance, power, and cost, depending on the application. The company was founded in 1930 and is headquartered in Dallas, TX.
