Addressing an audience of 850 computer system designers at the Mayflower Hotel on Sept. 7 in Washington, the TI board chairman and chief executive officer stressed that the industry will make an even more significant impact on the ecoecoic problems besetting the country if the price/performance ratio of future computer equipment can be improved.
