TI began operating in 1930 as a geophysical exploration company that used seismic signal-processing technology to search for oil. Today, TI serves the world's most innovative electronics companies, helping them develop new ideas that change the way we live. We design and make semiconductors that we sell to electronics designers and manufacturers all over the world. Additionally, we sell calculators and related products.
Our analog, embedded processing and wireless technologies permeate daily life in many different ways, from digital communications and entertainment to medical services, automotive systems and wide-ranging applications in-between. By providing semiconductor technologies that promote greater power efficiency, enable more features, enhance performance, and deliver more value, TI expands the possibilities every day for how we learn, connect, grow and discover.
We support employees and the communities where we operate through social responsibility and environmental stewardship. At our sites, we care for the safety and health of employees and maintain one of the top U.S. safety rates in the industry. We also take an industry-leading role in energy- and resource-efficient operations. In fact, we built the world's first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)-certified semiconductor manufacturing facility.
TI also contributes to a better quality of life in our communities through volunteerism and philanthropy. Employees around the world invest their time and expertise in local organizations and a variety of volunteer activities that support our neighboring communities. TI also supports arts and culture as well as health and human services in areas near our largest locations. However, our most significant contributions benefit students and teachers around the world to help increase the number of graduates with science, technology, engineering and math degrees.
TI was the world's fourth-largest semiconductor company in 2011 as measured by revenue, according to an external source. We have four segments: analog, embedded processing, wireless and other. The latter includes DLP® technology, which is used in digital projectors and cinema theaters, as well as education technology.
At the end of 2011, TI had approximately 29,600 employees, up from 28,400 at year-end 2010. This does not include National Semiconductor employees.
TI is incorporated in Delaware; headquartered in Dallas, Texas; and has manufacturing, design or sales operations in more than 35 countries serving more than 90,000 customers worldwide. Sites shown on the map are representative of our operations.
