Texas Instruments Incorporated is one of the world's largest semiconductor companies. They provide innovative semiconductor technologies to help our customers create the world’s most advanced electronics. Their 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.
From TI’s earliest days, the objective has been to use the company’s unique technical skills to fundamentally change markets and create entirely new ones. A constant thread throughout our history has been our use of progressively more complex real-time signal processing technology – with advances ranging from the incremental to the revolutionary – to literally and repeatedly change the world.
Texas Instruments serves the world’s most innovative electronics companies, helping them develop new ideas that change the way we live. 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. TI’s key businesses include:
Analog - Analog chips are an essential element in today’s digital world. They convert “real-world” signals such as voice, sound, pressure, temperature and electricity into the 1s and 0s that power all digital devices, where the digital signals can be processed very fast by digital signal processors (DSPs) and back into real world signals again. Texas Instruments specializes in these real-time technologies that are widely used in thousands of different end equipments.
Digital Signal Processing (DSP) - Digital signal processing (DSP) is helping fuel innovative, high-growth applications for many of today's fast-growing markets such as digital wireless, broadband access, digital audio, high-resolution imaging and digital motor control. Texas Instruments has close to 20 years of experience in real-time technologies, working with customers on thousands of different end equipments using TI DSP technology.
Wireless - TI is the leading manufacturer of wireless semiconductors, delivering the foundation of today's wireless technology and solutions and driving innovations to deliver the next generation of mobility. From traditional voice-centric mobile phones to the most advanced, multimedia-rich 3G devices, TI delivers a broad range of complete semiconductor and software solutions to meet the requirements of handset manufacturers, mobile operators and application software developers.
DLP® Technology - DLP® technology is a revolutionary display solution that uses an optical semiconductor to manipulate light digitally. It is a highly reliable, all-digital display chip that delivers the best picture across a broad range of products, including projectors for education, business and home entertainment, Digital Cinema (DLP Cinema®), HDTVs, and mobile projection (DLP® Pico™) for handheld and embedded projection applications.
APIP is designed to encourage students to take more rigorous, college-level coursework in high school. The TI Foundation funds incentives for both teachers and students in the Dallas Independent School District (Dallas ISD) because APIP prepares students for college and career success.
The Center for STEM Education and Research
“STEP in STEM”
The TI sponsored "STEP in STEM" program was designed to provide content and training for secondary school teachers, while developing a project-based curriculum in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Teachers receive state-required development credits and a stipend for their participation.
TI Ed Tech
TI Ed Tech also provided on-site assistance and expertise in the effective use of technology in STEM projects and education. All of the projects proposed by the educators used TI Ed Tech handheld technology. TI-Nspire handhelds and computer software served a variety of uses in the STEM projects — data collection, analyzing curves, manipulating calculations, exploring data — even mathematical and scientific writing and presentations.
Texas Stem Academies
Texas STEM academies' teachers who are taking part in the curriculum development program come from area secondary schools within the Texas STEM network supported by Texas Education Agency and Texas High School Project. The participating academies are Berkner STEM Academy in Richardson, Emmett J. Conrad STEM Academy in Dallas and Jack E Singley IT & Engineering Academy in Irving. Some participants came from other schools, including several TI Foundation STEM Fellows and future teachers from UTD's UTeach program, which has received grants from the TI Foundation.

Teachers Teaching with Technology
Sponsored by TI's Education Technology business, the Teachers Teaching with Technology (T3) program includes both face-to-face and online professional development institutes, at which thousands of educators in more than 25 countries around the world have been trained on the latest methods for using education technology to teach math and science.
TI unveiled a new website called PursueEngineering.com in 2010, which is aimed at persuading high school students who are interested in math and science to choose engineering as a college major and then as a career. The site, like UnleashTI.com site for college students, includes TI videos, career information, student testimonials and more about the types of degrees needed to pursue engineering as a career.
TI Math Forward™
With the help of leading mathematicians, researchers, educators and administrators, TI created a math program that combines instruction, professional development, curriculum integration and classroom technology in 2005.
From the 1930s oil field solutions of Texas Instruments’ founders, to inventing the world's first integrated circuits and electronic handheld calculators, TI is a place where life-changing technology is born and nurtured. TI wants team members who are inspired by the next big thing—people committed to making the world a better place and dedicated to doing it right the first time. TI offers an extraordinary culture, competitive benefits, professional development opportunities, collaboration and social responsibility. A TI career provides the chance to work with some of the world's most dynamic technologies that help people learn, grow, connect and discover.
