In 1995, Texas Instruments pioneered the
introduction of 1394 in the consumer electronics
market with the first 1394 silicon in a digital
camcorder. Since then, TI has continued its
1394 leadership by developing specific,
affordable parts for digital A/V consumer
products, including HDTVs, set-top boxes, A/V
receivers and DVD audio.
Beyond individual A/V applications, TI is addressing Home Networking
solutions using 1394. These solutions will not only be simpler to use,
but will reduce system costs, and protect digital content. TI continues
its 1394 leadership in other areas, too. These areas include: PC
applications, consumer electronics, industrial automation and controls.
