These products are used in a vast range of end equipment, such as portable media players, test and measurement equipment, communications base stations, robots, and notebook computers.

Previously, Anderson held several leadership positions within the company's Analog division, most recently serving as senior vice president over the Power Management business unit. In this role, he was responsible for the business strategy and operations, including product development and product definition to serve the requirements of virtually any electronic application. Anderson and his teams helped grow TI to become the leading supplier of power management integrated circuits.
