Texas Instruments ( TXN) may be best-known to school kids as the iron-fisted control of the country's market for graphing calculators, but to investors (and engineers), the firm's most important achievement comes from being the world's biggest analog chipmaker. Early filings point to hedge funds boosting their stake in the firm in a big way; funds acquired more than a million shares of TXN in the third quarter, up from 300,000 shares in the prior quarter.
