TEXAS INSTRUMENTS RESPONDS TO MICRON LAWSUIT

 TEXAS INSTRUMENTS RESPONDS TO MICRON LAWSUIT
 DALLAS, Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments (NYSE: TXN)


announced today its intention to vigorously protect its intellectual property rights against Micron Technology, Inc. (NYSE: MU) whose existing patent cross-license agreement expires today. TI filed a lawsuit for patent infringement and a declaratory judgment today in Federal District Court in Texas.
 TI had been in discussions with Micron, and had been willing to continue negotiations after the current agreement expires. Yesterday, Micron terminated negotiations, and filed a lawsuit last night.
 "We are puzzled by Micron's behavior since we don't see any benefit to them in this course of action," said Richard J. Agnich, TI senior vice president and general counsel. "While we would have preferred a negotiated resolution of the dispute, if Micron insists upon litigation, TI will vigorously protect its intellectual property rights in court."
