Innovation is the foundation upon which TI is built. Today, TI’s Analog and Embedded Processing products are shaping the future of electronics. Tomorrow, the possibilities are endless.
In this series TI innovators discuss the challenges in areas such as cloud connectivity, smart buildings, medical electronics and much more.
- Semiconductor innovation is enabling new ways of delivering medical care and wellness
- Innovations in energy efficiency, consumption and harvesting will produce an array of benefits.
- Low-power design and connectivity: Key components for the "Internet of Things."
- Learn about the growing role of embedded analytics in areas such as automotive, surveillance and industrial systems.
- Advances in energy harvesting are paving the way for perpetual devices.
- Microcontrollers enable designers to bring an array of intelligent features to energy-efficient LED lighting.
- Power line communications is very attractive in applications that can benefit from networking over existing lines.
TI's R&D teams are embedded in every business unit across the company, where they work directly with customers and stay closely coupled to the realities of the market. TI also operates about a dozen dedicated research-and-development labs, including several that are specifically designed to spur high-risk, breakthrough ideas that can be rapidly explored in an open and collaborative environment.
TI’s origins in 1930 involved an innovative approach to oil exploration using early signal-processing technology. And ever since then the company’s history has been punctuated by important innovations – such as the integrated circuit itself – as well as decisions to remake itself – as a successful defense contractor in the 1940s and, most recently, as the world leader in analog semiconductor technology.
