Important Notice for TI WEBENCH® Designs

Texas Instruments Incorporated (“TI”) WEBENCH tools attempt to recreate the performance of substantially equivalent physical implementations of circuit designs and are solely intended to assist designers (“Designer(s)”) who are developing systems that incorporate TI products. WEBENCH tools use TI's published product specifications, as well as the published product specifications of other manufacturers. While TI does update this information periodically, it may not be current at the time the simulation is built.

TI’s provision of TI WEBENCH designs and any other technical, applications or design advice, simulations, quality characterization, reliability data or other information or services does not expand or otherwise alter TI’s applicable published warranties or warranty disclaimers for TI products, and no additional obligations or liabilities arise from TI providing such TI WEBENCH designs or other items.

TI reserves the right to make corrections, enhancements, improvements and other changes to TI WEBENCH and other items.

Designer understands and agrees that Designer remains responsible for using its independent analysis, evaluation and judgment in designing Designer’s systems and products, and has full and exclusive responsibility to assure the safety of its products and compliance of its products (and of all TI products used in or for such Designer’s products) with all applicable regulations, laws and other applicable requirements. Designer represents that, with respect to its applications, it has all the necessary expertise to create and implement safeguards that (1) anticipate dangerous consequences of failures, (2) monitor failures and their consequences, and (3) lessen the likelihood of failures that might cause harm and take appropriate actions. Designer agrees that prior to using or distributing any systems that include TI products, Designer will thoroughly test such systems and the functionality of such TI products as used in such systems. Designer may not use any TI products in life-critical medical equipment unless authorized officers of the parties have executed a special contract specifically governing such use. Life-critical medical equipment is medical equipment where failure of such equipment would cause serious bodily injury or death (e.g., life support, pacemakers, defibrillators, heart pumps, neurostimulators, and implantables). Such equipment includes, without limitation, all medical devices identified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as Class III devices and equivalent classifications outside the U.S.

Designers are authorized to use, copy and modify any individual TI WEBENCH designs only in connection with the development of end products that include the TI product(s) identified in that WEBENCH design. HOWEVER, NO OTHER LICENSE, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, BY ESTOPPEL OR OTHERWISE TO ANY OTHER TI INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHT, AND NO LICENSE TO ANY TECHNOLOGY OR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHT OF TI OR ANY THIRD PARTY IS GRANTED HEREIN, including but not limited to any patent right, copyright, mask work right, or other intellectual property right relating to any combination, machine, or process in which TI products or services are used. Information published by TI regarding third-party products or services does not constitute a license to use such products or services, or a warranty or endorsement thereof. Use of the TI WEBENCH design or other items described above may require a license from a third party under the patents or other intellectual property of the third party, or a license from TI under the patents or other intellectual property of TI.

TI WEBENCH DESIGNS AND OTHER ITEMS DESCRIBED ABOVE ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND WITH ALL FAULTS. TI DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, REGARDING THE TI WEBENCH DESIGNS OR USE OF THE TI WEBENCH DESIGNS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ACCURACY OR COMPLETENESS, TITLE, ANY EPIDEMIC FAILURE WARRANTY AND ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OF ANY THIRD PARTY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS.

TI SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR AND SHALL NOT DEFEND OR INDEMNIFY DESIGNERS AGAINST ANY CLAIM, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY INFRINGEMENT CLAIM THAT RELATES TO OR IS BASED ON ANY COMBINATION OF PRODUCTS AS DESCRIBED IN A TI WEBENCH DESIGN OR OTHERWISE. IN NO EVENT SHALL TI BE LIABLE FOR ANY ACTUAL, DIRECT, SPECIAL, COLLATERAL, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES IN CONNECTION WITH OR ARISING OUT OF THE TI WEBENCH DESIGNS OR USE OF THE TI WEBENCH DESIGNS, AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER TI HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

TI's standard terms of sale for semiconductor products apply to the sale of packaged integrated circuit products.

Use of TI's WEBENCH tools is subject to TI’s Site Terms and Conditions of Use and TI’s Privacy Policy. Designer acknowledges and agrees that the design data Designer inputs into the WEBENCH tools to create a WEBENCH design is not Designer’s proprietary or confidential information. Additional terms may apply to the use or sale of other types of TI products and services.

Designer will fully indemnify TI and its representatives against any damages, costs, losses, and/or liabilities arising out of Designer’s non-compliance with the terms and provisions of this Notice.
