TI RESOLVES ALL PC SYSTEM LITIGATION; DAEWOO AND DELL SIGN LICENSING AGREEMENTS

 DALLAS, March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments (NYSE: TXN) today announced the resolution of all outstanding litigation regarding infringement of TI's personal computer (PC) system patents.
 Daewoo Electronics Company Ltd., Daewoo Telecom Co., Ltd., and Dell Computer Corporation have signed patent cross-licensing agreements with TI. Under terms of the agreements, these companies obtain a license through 1997 for TI PC system patents in exchange for royalty payments to TI.
 Previously announced agreements include Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., Tandy Corporation, Wang Laboratories, Inc., and Zenith Data Systems Corporation.
 TI's PC system patents relate to the way in which input/output functions, such as keyboards, displays and printers, interact with the processing systems of personal computers. TI has been a pioneer in systems technologies, for which it has spent millions of dollars in research and development.
 Resolution of all the PC system litigation affirms the value of TI's patented technology. "We are pleased to have resolved all of the litigation. TI receives fair value for its patents and the companies receive the right to use important technology," said Richard L. Donaldson, TI's chief patent counsel.
 All of TI's PC system agreements, taken together, will provide catch-up royalties in the first quarter of 1993 and contribute to the ongoing stream of royalty income TI expects to receive in 1993 and future years.
