Does TI offer IC samples and how do I get access to order?
Yes, TI offers samples of its devices to design engineers to support new product designs and to qualify TI devices in existing designs. You can request samples on our "Order now" tab for that device and select “Request sample.” However, the list of available devices changes frequently as devices are added to and removed from the program.
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. TI does not allow the use of free email domains to order samples, so apply with your myTI account tied to your corporate email domain. TI reserves the right to approve or decline any company into the sample program. Please note that sample limits do apply
Can I order IC samples as a university student?
At TI, we have a very deep commitment to investing in university programs that spans recruiting, helping professors develop coursework, literature, design contests, and many other activities. The sample program is designed for professional development activities, and therefore, we do not provide samples to universities. For student projects, we suggest purchasing devices online through TI. TI can sell orders as small as one unit for your project.
Why am I required to provide my application and end equipment information?
The US Department of State - Directorate of Defense Trade Controls imposes upon exporters specific requirements that must be met prior to exporting goods. This includes requiring TI to know certain facts about how ICs, tools, and software will be used and by whom.
Why must I enter my address information in English for IC samples?
When purchasing tools and/or ICs, we are required to verify that the name, company, and address submitted are not prohibited from shipment by the United States government. The systems used for validation require all names and addresses to be in English.
Can I place a backorder on the TI.com?
We do not allow backorder(s) for any out of stock item. You can sign up for Notify me when available emails for that device.
