Engineering the World.
TI has literally transformed the world in 75 years. From
humble beginnings in Texas oil fields to leadership in global
markets, TI has thrived by developing the ideas of its people.
Built by the determination of founders Eugene McDermott,
Erik Jonsson, Cecil Green and Pat Haggerty, our company not
only survived, but changed the world through risk taking
Our contributions to communities and industries around
the world are unmatched because of thousands of TI
inventors such as Nobel Prize-winner Jack Kilby. Thanks
to them, our history includes inventions such as the
silicon transistors, the first integrated circuits and
the first electronic hand-held calculator.
As we begin our second 75 years, TI leads the way in
digital signal processing and analog technologies—the
engines of the Internet age. TI and its people are
setting the pace in global markets such as wireless and
access, as well as a variety of emerging markets that
include digital projection systems and digital audio.
Our story offers a window into a corporate culture
that fosters the creativity and mental toughness
a competitive world. TI also has demonstrated how
a company can become a true member of the communities
through fiscal responsibility, civic mindedness,
support for education and leadership in research
