The company posted gross profit of $2.04bn as compared to $1.48bn of Q3 FY09.

TI chairman, president and chief executive officer Rich Templeton said demand from industrial markets was especially strong, while consumer demand cooled, impacting markets such as computing and televisions.

"Importantly, we soon will begin initial shipments from RFAB, the world’s first 300-millimeter manufacturing facility for analog semiconductors.
"In the quarter, we also purchased a 200-millimeter analog manufacturing facility in Aizu, Japan, and this month we began our first semiconductor manufacturing operations in China with the purchase of a facility in the high-tech region of Chengdu."
For the fourth quarter of 2010, TI expects revenue between $3.36 – 3.64bn and earnings per share between $0.59 – 0.67.
