DALLAS (AP) - Texas Instruments Inc. says its net income fell 11 percent in the fourth quarter while revenue fell even more.

Both results were slightly better than expectations.

The Dallas-based chipmaker said Tuesday that net income in the three months to Dec. 31 fell to $264 million, or 23 cents per share, from $298 million, or 25 cents per share, a year ago.

Revenue fell 13 percent to $2.98 billion, slightly ahead of the $2.95 billion expected by analysts.

CEO Rich Templeton says TI continues to operate in a weak demand environment but that many customers had lean inventories, meaning an uptick in demand could create better results quickly.

For the full year, Texas Instruments earned $1.76 billion, or $1.51 per share, on revenue of $12.83 billion.
