Texas Instruments designs and makes semiconductors that it sells to electronics designers and manufacturers. Co.'s segments include Analog and Embedded Processing. Co.'s analog semiconductors change signals, such as sound, temperature, pressure or images, by conditioning them, amplifying them and often converting them to a stream of digital data that can be processed by other semiconductors. Co.'s embedded Processing products are designed to handle specific tasks and can be improved for various combinations of performance, power and cost, depending on the application. Co.'s Embedded Processing segment includes microcontrollers, digital signal processors and applications processors.
