Texas Instruments has introduced TI Silicon Valley Labs, a research center for innovation in analog and mixed signal electronics. The labs’ charter is to conduct advanced research and development in analog and mixed signal circuits and technologies through recruitment of top talent and close collaboration with universities and customers, says the company.
Texas Instruments is working with Stanford University, the University of California Berkeley, and other area universities to further strengthen key engineering undergraduate programs. The university collaboration will provide opportunities for graduate-level research on-site at TI’s recently-acquired 70-acre facility in Santa Clara, CA. The company is also doubling its internship opportunities for top engineering undergraduate students as well as training programs at TI in Silicon Valley for top new college graduates.
