The Company's products address applications for both analog and digital signal processing relating to industrial, communications, consumer, and computing markets. 
Burr-Brown Corporation
Burr-Brown Corporation was a worldwide leader in the development, manufacturing and marketing of precision linear, data conversion and mixed signal integrated circuits. These products address applications in communications, industrial control, instrumentation, consumer electronics, and personal computer systems.
The Burr-Brown Corporation was a United States technology company in Tucson, Arizona, which designed, manufactured, and marketed a broad line of proprietary, standard, high-performance, analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs) used in electronic signal processing. The company's products were used in a wide range of applications: industrial process and control, telecommunications, test and measurement, medical and scientific instrumentation, medical imaging, digital audio and video, personal computing and multimedia.

In September 2000, Texas Instruments acquired the company. TI's world leading DSP expertise will provide Burr-Brown's high performance analog semiconductors access to many new applications. The makers of Internet appliances and communications systems will have the best of both worlds in one company, with complementary components that optimally meet their total signal processing requirements. The combined force of analog and DSP technical field experts will deliver unmatched support as customers develop their systems. Together, TI and Burr-Brown provide more analog field-based engineers than any other supplier.

With the acquisition, Texas Instruments / TI (TXN), already the world's leading designer and supplier of digital signal processors (DSPs) and analog integrated circuits, also becomes a leading provider of high-performance data converters.

 


Burr-Brown is an elite developer of analog semiconductors, principally in the data converter and amplifier segments of the market. It designs data converters at the highest end of the precision and speed range, including 24-bit converters. Data converters and amplifiers are key to new and emerging applications, such as 3G (third generation) wireless phones, DSL (digital subscriber line) modems, Internet audio players and digital consumer audio systems. Analog is one of the largest sectors in the semiconductor industry and is expected to grow more than 25 percent this year, according to industry analyst Dataquest.
