Such business model does Texas Instruments less vulnerable to the sudden fluctuations in demand or pressure of competitors.

At the same time sales to the company it was reduced in every quarter 2019. Texas Instruments warned that decline in demand for chips can last some more quarters as growth of economy of China slows down, and producers face effects of the prolonged trade conflict between the USA and China.

2012: Texas Instruments leaves mobile business

The American company Texas Instruments (TI) announced in September, 2012 that it will reduce the investment volume into development and production of processors for the applications installed in smartphones and tablet computers Reuters reports. Processors for applications which TI releases under the OMAP brand are the devices based on ARM architecture intended for start on the mobile device of the software including the operating system, the graphical interface and mobile applications.

In February, 2011 TI announced OMAP processors of fifth generation - OMAP 5. So far the new family contains only two chips: OMAP5430 and OMAP5432. Both processors contain 4 main cores executed on 28-nanometer technology - on two cores of ARM Cortex-A15 MPCore and on two ARM Cortex-M4, - which are supplemented by the multinuclear graphic PowerVR SGX544-MPx controller.

Processors of Texas Instruments stand in a set of popular devices, including, for example, Amazon smartphone Samsung Kindle Fire HD, Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet and BlackBerry PlayBook, Galaxy Nexus tablets and a set smartphones of Motorola company. Instead of continuing to develop the direction of processors for mobile devices in the company made the decision to be focused on the built-in systems, including the electronic systems for cars. The supplier is under serious competitive pressure from other American company - Qualcomm, the market leader of mobile chips on supply rates (sells processors under the Snapdragon brand).

The Texas Instruments company is reoriented from release of processors for cell phones, tablets and other devices of wireless communication on the built-in systems. The staff of the company at the same time will be cut down on 1700 people. It is reported in November, 2012

The division which is engaged in chips for wireless communication sustains losses the third quarter in a row. In the last quarter it lost 53 million dollars whereas the same period of last year was complete with a profit of 78 million dollars.
