Net income rose to $1.75 billion, or $1.87 per share, in the first quarter ended March 31, from $1.17 billion, or $1.24 per share, a year earlier.

TI’s analog and embedded chips are used for everything from factory automation to personal computers and car infotainment systems, lowering the company’s risk of heavy dependence on a few markets.

TI said it expected second-quarter revenue in a range of $4.13 billion to $4.47 billion.
