Ordering IC Samples
Yes, TI offers samples for over 20,000 active devices to design engineers to support new product designs and to qualify TI devices in existing designs. You can request these samples on our "Order Now" tab for that device; however, the list of available devices changes frequently as devices are added to and removed from the program.
Most TI devices are available in multiple packages and temperature options. The TI store offers some but not all of these options. If you need other options that are not available on the TI store, you can contact one the TI Authorized Semiconductor Distributors.
If you are a first time user of the sample program, you will be required to request access for approval prior to placing your sample order. You can review the process to request access here.

I am a university student. Why can’t I order free IC samples?
Due to the high cost of a sample program like TI's, we require complete contact information using a corporate (.com) email domain as well as full shipping information.

If I need a device that is not available for IC sampling, what do I do?

How do I request IC samples of high-reliability or military devices?
We do not offer IC samples for high reliability devices intended for space, avionics, defense or enhanced industrial applications from the TI Store. Please contact a TI Authorized Military Distributor to request these devices and provide the required Certificate of Conformance.
Why does my TI store sample order require acceptance through email?
To ensure that customers receiving TI store samples understand TI store terms and conditions for orders placed by a TI representative, such orders must be reviewed and approved by the customer. The sample order is placed using the email address associated with the intended recipient’s myTI account. The customer receives an email asking them to click on a URL, login using their myTI account information, and either accept or reject the sample order placed on their behalf. If an order is not accepted or rejected, it will expire and be cancelled after 10 days.
