Taxes Instruments

Taxes instruments , well known as TI, is an American company based in Dallas, Taxes. It was founded by Cecil H.Green,J. Erik Jonsson, Eugene McDermott, and Patrick E.Haggerty in 1951. McDermott was one of the original founders of Geophysical Service in 1930. McDermott,Green, and Jonsson were GSI employees who purchased the company in 1941. In November, 1945, Patrick Haggerty was hired as general manager of the Laboratory and Manufacturing division. By 1951, the L&M division, with its defense contracts, was growing faster than GSI's Geophysical division. The company was reorganized and initially renamed General Instruments Inc. Because there already is a firm named General Instrument, the company was rechristened Taxes Instruments that same year. Geophysical Service Inc. Became a subsidiaryof Taxes Instruments which it remained until early 1988, when most of GSI was sold to the Halliburton Company.
 After the Acquisition of National Semiconductor in 2011, the company has a combined portfolio of nearly 45,000 analog products and consumer design tools, making it the world's largest maker of analog technology components. In 2011, Texas Instruments ranked 175 in the Fortune 500. I t is made up of two main divisions:Semiconductors(SC) and Educational Technology (ET) of which Semiconductor products account for approximately 96% of TI's revenue.
Microcontrollers and Processors
MSP 430 : low cost, low power consumption, and general purpose 16-bit MCU for use in embedded applications
TMS320C2XXX:16 and 32 bit MCU family optimized for real-time control applications.
C24X: 16 bit, fixed point, 20to40 MHz.
C38X:32bit,fixed or floating point, 100 to 150 MHz.
Stellaris ARM Cortex-M3 based 32-bit MCU family.
Taxes Instruments also produces several multi-core processor lines besides its microcontrollers.
OMAP systems-on-chips(SoC's) are designed for low-powered applications, and originally targeted mobile phones.As a rule they contain an ARM application processor (currently Cortex-A8, previously ARM11 or ARM9), a DSP (currently C64x, previously often C55), and sometimes other cores.
DaVinci SoC's contain a C64 series DSP core, an ARM9 core for applications processing, and specialized video processing peripherals.
