stockholders on March 9, 1993. A total of 100,000 shares of Common Stock may be
issued under the Plan, subject to adjustments as provided in the Plan. Under the

the date of grant, were granted to all eligible directors on September 11, 1992
subject to approval of the Plan by the stockholders, which occurred on March 9,

election or appointment to the Board of Directors. Options may not be exercised
prior to the third anniversary of the date of grant of such option. Each option
may be exercised on a cumulative basis as to one-third of the shares subject to

    Officers in the fiscal years presented, including amounts deferred at the
    election of these officers to the Company's defined contribution plan (the
    "Investment Partnership").

(2) While certain of the Named Executive Officers received perquisites or other
    personal benefits (including tax and planning advice by third parties) in
    the years shown, in accordance with SEC regulations, the value of these
    benefits are not reflected above since they did not exceed in the aggregate
    the lesser of $50,000 or 10% of the individual's salary and bonus in any
    fiscal year.
 
(3) The value of restricted stock awards was determined by multiplying the fair
    market value of the Company's Common Stock on the date of grant by the
    number of shares awarded. As of October 30, 1993, the number and value of
    aggregate restricted stock holdings were as follows: 100,000 shares
    ($2,225,000) by Mr. Stata; 95,000 shares ($2,113,750) by Mr. Fishman; 30,000
    shares ($667,500) by Mr. McAloon and 30,000 shares ($667,500) by Mr.
    McDonough. No dividends were paid in 1993 on the restricted stock reported
    in this column. In addition, on December 14, 1993, Messrs. McAloon and
    McDonough each received restricted stock grants in the amount of 10,000
    shares, valued at $211,250 on the date of grant, which vest in their
    entirety on the fifth anniversary of the date of grant.
 
(4) Options may not be exercised prior to the third anniversary of the date of
    grant of such option. Each option may be exercised on a cumulative basis as
    to one-third of the shares subject to the option on the third, fourth and
    fifth anniversaries of the date of grant of such option. The option exercise
    price is equal to the fair market value on the date of grant.
 
(5) Amounts shown as "All Other Compensation" are amounts contributed or accrued
    by the Company for each fiscal year for the Named Executive Officers under
    The Investment Partnership, except as set forth in note (8) below.
 
(6) Mr. McAloon was elected an executive officer of the Company effective
    December 9, 1992. Salary reflected in the table includes compensation paid
    to Mr. McAloon in all capacities during fiscal year 1993.
 
(7) Mr. Martin was elected an executive officer of the Company effective March
    9, 1993. Salary reflected in the table includes compensation paid to Mr.
    Martin in all capacities during fiscal year 1993.
 
(8) Mr. Urwin was elected an executive officer of the Company effective November
    4, 1991. Salary reflected in the table includes compensation paid to Mr.
    Urwin in all capacities during fiscal years 1992 and 1993. Mr. Urwin's
    employment with the Company terminated on July 31, 1993.
 
(9) Includes $11,566 contributed by the Company for Mr. Urwin under the
    Company's United Kingdom pension plan. Also includes $242,500 paid to Mr.
    Urwin in connection with the termination of his employment with the Company.
    Also in connection with the termination of his employment with the Company,
    on August 2, 1993, the vesting of 7,500 shares of Restricted Common Stock
    was accelerated, representing the unvested portions of restricted stock
    awards having a market value of $157,500 on that date.
 
  Option Grants
 
     No stock options were granted to any of the Named Executive Officers during
the fiscal year ended October 30, 1993.
 
     On December 14, 1993, Mr. Stata, Mr. Fishman, Mr. McAloon, Mr. McDonough
and Mr. Martin were each granted an option to purchase 80,000, 80,000, 15,000,
10,000 and 5,000 shares of Common Stock of the Company, respectively, at an
exercise price equal to the fair market value per share on the date of grant.
Options granted to Messrs. Stata and Fishman may not be exercised prior to the
fifth anniversary of the date of grant and become exercisable in full on the
fifth anniversary of the date of grant. Options granted to Messrs. McAloon,
McDonough and Martin may not be exercised prior to the third anniversary of the
date of grant of such option. Each option may be exercised on a cumulative basis
as to one-third of the shares subject to the option on the third, fourth and
fifth anniversaries of the date of grant of such option.

SEVERANCE AND OTHER AGREEMENTS
 
     The Company has Employee Retention Agreements (the "Agreements") with four
of its five current executive officers and with 24 additional key managers. The
Agreements are automatically extended on an annual basis unless the Company
provides at least three months' notice that the Agreements will not be extended.
The Agreements provide for severance benefits if either (i) the employment of
the employee is terminated by the Company (other than for cause or by reason of
his death or disability) or by the employee for Good Reason (as defined in the
Agreements) within 24 months after a Change in Control (as defined in the
Agreements) which is approved by the Board of Directors or (ii) the employment
of the employee terminates or is terminated for any reason (other than for cause
or by reason of his death or disability) within 12 months after a Change in
Control which is not approved by the Board of Directors. Each Agreement provides
that, in the event of a Potential Change in Control (as defined in the
Agreements), the employee shall not voluntarily resign as an employee, subject
to certain conditions, for at least six months after the occurrence of such
Potential Change in Control.
 
     The Agreements provide for the following severance benefits: (i) a lump-sum
payment equal to 200% of the sum of the employee's annual base salary plus the
aggregate cash bonuses paid or awarded to him in respect of the four fiscal
quarters preceding his termination (299% in the case of seven of the 28
employees who are parties to such agreements, including Messrs. Stata, Fishman,
McAloon and McDonough), (ii) the continuation of life, disability, dental,
accident and group health insurance benefits for a period of 24 months and (iii)
reimbursement of legal fees and expenses incurred by the employee in seeking to
enforce his rights under his Agreement. In addition, to the extent that payments
to the employee pursuant to his Agreement (together with any other payments or
benefits, such as the accelerated vesting of stock options or restricted stock
awards, received by the employee in connection with a Change in Control) would
result in the triggering of the provisions of Sections 280G and 4999 of the
Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"), the Agreement provides
for the payment of an additional amount (the "Tax Gross-Up Amount") such that
the employee receives, net of excise taxes, the amount he would have been
entitled to receive in the absence of the excise tax provided in Section 4999 of
the Code. Based on compensation levels as of December 31, 1993, each of Messrs.
Stata, Fishman, McDonough and McAloon and all current executive officers as a
group (including Messrs. Stata, Fishman, McDonough and McAloon), would be
entitled to receive a lump-sum payment of $2,281,352, $2,214,490, $857,954,
$986,488 and $6,340,284, respectively, under the Agreements. These amounts do
not include the Tax Gross-Up Amounts, which would substantially increase the
amounts payable under the Agreements, or the insurance or reimbursement
benefits.
 
     The Company's Employee Change in Control Severance Policy and Senior
Management Change in Control Severance Policy provide each employee of the
Company (other than those who are party to the Agreements) with a lump-sum
severance payment, based on length of service with the Company, in the event of
the termination of his or her employment under certain circumstances within 18
months after a Change in Control (as defined in such policies). Such severance
payments range from a minimum of two weeks of annual base salary (for an hourly
employee with less than 90 days of service) to a maximum of 104 weeks of base
salary plus an amount equal to the aggregate cash bonuses paid or awarded to the
employee in respect of the four fiscal quarters preceding termination (for a
senior management employee with 21 years of service). Pursuant to the Senior
Management Change in Control Policy, Mr. Martin would be entitled to a lump-sum
severance benefit of $121,434 based on his fiscal 1993 compensation.
 
     In addition to the foregoing agreements and policies, the Company's stock
option and restricted stock plans provide for immediate vesting of all
outstanding options and awards upon any Change in Control (as defined in such
plans) of the Company.

     Mr. Urwin's employment with the Company terminated on July 31, 1993. In
connection with his termination of employment, Mr. Urwin received a lump sum
payment of $242,500. Also in connection with the termination of his employment,
on August 2, 1993, the vesting of 7,500 shares of Restricted Common Stock was
accelerated, representing the unvested portions of restricted stock awards
having a market value of $157,500 on that date.
 
R
EPORT OF THE COMPENSATION COMMITTEE
 
     The Company's executive compensation program is designed to attract, retain
and reward executives who are responsible for leading the Company in achieving
its business objectives. The Compensation Committee makes decisions each year
regarding executive compensation, including annual base salaries, bonus awards
and stock option grants and restricted stock awards. All executive officers are
reviewed by the full Board of Directors. This report is submitted by the
Compensation Committee and addresses the Compensation policies for fiscal 1993
as they affected Mr. Stata, in his capacity as Chairman of the Board and Chief
Executive Officer of the Company, and other executive officers of the Company.
 
  Compensation Philosophy
 
     The Company's executive compensation philosophy is based on the belief that
competitive compensation is essential to attract, motivate and retain highly
qualified and industrious employees. The Company's policy is to provide total
compensation that is competitive for comparable work and comparable corporate
performance. The compensation program includes both motivational and
retention-related compensation components. Bonuses are included to encourage
effective performance relative to current plans and objectives. Stock options
are included to help retain productive people and to more closely align their
interests with those of stockholders.
 
     In executing its compensation policy, the Company seeks to relate
compensation with the Company's financial performance and business objectives,
reward high levels of individual performance and tie a significant portion of
total executive compensation to both the annual and long term performance of the
Company. While compensation survey data are useful guides for comparative
purposes, the Company believes that a successful compensation program also
requires the application of judgment and subjective determinations of individual
performance, and to that extent the Compensation Committee applies judgment in
reconciling the program's objectives with the realities of retaining valued
employees.
 
  Executive Compensation Program
 
     Annual compensation for the Company's executives consists of three
principal elements -- base salary, cash bonus and stock options and restricted
stock awards.
 
- - CASH COMPENSATION
 
     Annual cash compensation consists of two elements -- base salary and bonus.
     In setting the annual cash compensation for Company executives, the
     Compensation Committee reviews compensation for comparable positions in a
     group of approximately 20 companies selected by the Committee for
     comparison purposes. Most of these companies are engaged in the manufacture
     and sale of semiconductor devices, instruments and computer software. The
     Company also regularly compares its pay practices with other leading
     companies through reviews of survey and proxy data.
 
     Increases in annual base salary are based on a review and evaluation of the
     performance of the operation or activity for which the executive has
     responsibility, the impact of that operation or activity on the Company and
     the skills and experience required for the job, coupled with a comparison
     of these elements with similar elements for other executives both within
     and outside the Company.
 
                                       10

<PAGE>   13
 
     The cash bonus is tied directly to financial performance targets approved
     by the Board of Directors. The ratio of bonus ("variable" pay) to base
     salary ("fixed" pay) varies significantly across the levels in the
     organization to reflect the ability of the individual to impact the
     performance of the Company and to absorb the risk of variable pay. The cash
     bonus is dependent solely on corporate performance. For example, in fiscal
     1991 the Company did not achieve its performance targets and no bonuses
     were paid.
 
     All of the Company's employees, including its executive officers,
     participated in the Company's bonus plan (the "Bonus Plan") in fiscal 1993,
     except those employees on commission plans or in some non-U.S. locations.
     The purpose of the Bonus Plan is to recognize and reward the contribution
     of all employees in achieving the Company's goals and objectives. The
     fiscal 1993 Bonus Plan provided for the payment of a semi-annual cash bonus
     based on the Company's attainment of specified Operating Profit Before
     Taxes ("OPBT") levels. No bonus was to be paid if the Company's performance
     fell below a predetermined OPBT threshold (5% in 1993). To the extent OPBT
     exceeded this threshold, the bonus payments increased. Each employee,
     including executives, is assigned a Bonus Target, calculated as a
     percentage of such employee's base earnings, based on competitive data and
     position. Depending on OPBT levels achieved, the cash bonus is paid as a
     multiple ("Payment Factor") of the Bonus Target, ranging from zero to a
     maximum of two.
 
- - EQUITY OWNERSHIP
 
     Total compensation at the executive level also includes long-term
     incentives afforded by stock options and restricted stock awards. The
     purpose of the Company's stock ownership program is to (i) reinforce the
     mutuality of long term interests between employees and the stockholders and
     (ii) to assist in the attraction and retention of critically important key
     executives, managers and individual contributors, mostly engineers, who are
     essential to the Company's success.
 
     The design of the Company's stock programs includes long vesting periods to
     optimize the retention value of these options and to orient the Company's
     managers to longer term success. Generally, stock options vest one-third
     after three years from date of grant, two-thirds after four years and 100%
     after five years. Restricted stock awards vest 100% after five years. If
     employees leave the Company before these vesting periods, they forfeit the
     unvested portions of these awards. While the Company believes that these
     longer vesting periods are in the best interest of stockholders, they tend
     to increase the number of options outstanding compared to companies with
     shorter vesting schedules.
 
     The size of stock option awards is generally intended to reflect the
     significance of the executive's current and anticipated contributions to
     the Company. The exercise price of options granted by the Company has been
     100% of the fair market value per share on the date of grant. Prior to
     determining the December 1993 option grants to the Company's executives (as
     described below), the Compensation Committee reviewed survey information of
     the stock option programs of competitors and other companies in the
     semiconductor, computer and electronics industries. The value realizable
     from exercisable options is dependent upon the extent to which the
     Company's performance is reflected in the price of the Company's Common
     Stock at any particular point in time. However, the decision as to whether
     such value will be realized through the exercise of an option in any
     particular year is primarily determined by each individual within the
     limits of the vesting schedule, and not by the Compensation Committee.
 
     The Company's 1991 Restricted Stock Plan provides for the award of
     restricted stock for a nominal purchase price. Shares purchased under the
     plan are subject, for a period of five years (the "Restricted Period"), to
     certain restrictions upon transfer and provisions relating to forfeiture in
     the event of termination of employment. If the employment of a recipient of
     an award is terminated prior to the end of the Restricted Period for any
     reason other than death or disability, all shares of Common Stock covered
 
                                       11

<PAGE>   14
 
     by the award shall be offered promptly for resale by the recipient to the
     Company at the original purchase price per share. Since the restricted
     shares are issued at nominal consideration, the entire value of the shares
     will constitute additional compensation to the individual at the time of
     vesting.
 
  Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Fiscal 1993 Compensation
 
     Mr. Stata, in his capacity as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, is
eligible to participate in the same executive compensation program available to
the Company's other senior executives. The Compensation Committee has set Mr.
Stata's total annual compensation, including compensation derived from the
Company's bonus program and stock option program, at a level it believes to be
competitive with other companies in the industry.
 
     During fiscal 1993, Mr. Stata's annual base salary was increased $49,600
from $470,400 to $520,000. His bonus award of $242,994 for fiscal 1993
represented approximately 96% of his Bonus Target, which is based on 50% of his
base salary received during fiscal 1993, and reflected the Company's attainment
of 9.4% of OPBT for the entire fiscal year.
 
  Compliance with Internal Revenue Code Section 162(m)
 
     Section 162(m) of the Code, enacted in 1993, generally disallows a tax
deduction to public companies for compensation over $1 million paid to its chief
executive officer and its four other most highly compensated executive officers.
Qualifying performance-based compensation will not be subject to the deduction
limit if certain requirements are met. The Company currently intends to
structure its stock options granted to executive officers in a manner that
complies with the performance-based requirements of the new statute.

COMPENSATION COMMITTEE INTERLOCKS AND INSIDER PARTICIPATION
 
     The members of the Compensation Committee are Messrs. Gordon C. McKeague,
Morris Chang and Lester C. Thurow. Mr. John L. Doyle, a director of the Company,
was a member of the Compensation Committee until December 7, 1993, when he was
replaced by Mr. Thurow.

                          RATIFICATION OF SELECTION OF

                              INDEPENDENT AUDITORS
 
     The Board of Directors, on the recommendation of its Audit Committee, has
selected the firm of Ernst & Young, independent auditors, as auditors of the
Company for the fiscal year ending October 29, 1994. Although stockholder
approval of the Board of Directors' selection of Ernst & Young is not required
by law, the Board of Directors believes that it is advisable to give
stockholders an opportunity to ratify this selection. If this proposal is not
approved at the Annual Meeting, the Board of Directors will reconsider its
selection of Ernst & Young.
 
     Representatives of Ernst & Young are expected to be present at the Annual
Meeting. They will have the opportunity to make a statement if they desire to do
so and will also be available to respond to appropriate questions from
stockholders.
 
                                 OTHER MATTERS
 
     The Board of Directors does not know of any other matters which may come
before the meeting. However, if any other matters are properly presented to the
meeting, it is the intention of the persons named in the accompanying proxy to
vote, or otherwise act, in accordance with their judgment on such matters.
 
     All costs of solicitation of proxies will be borne by the Company. In
addition to solicitations by mail, the Company's directors, officers and regular
employees, without additional remuneration, may solicit proxies by telephone,
telegraph and personal interviews. Brokers, custodians and fiduciaries will be
requested to forward proxy soliciting material to the owners of stock held in
their names. The Company will reimburse banks and brokers for their reasonable
out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with the distribution of proxy
materials.
 
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF STOCKHOLDER PROPOSALS FOR THE 1995 ANNUAL MEETING
 
     Proposals of stockholders intended to be presented at the 1995 Annual
Meeting of Stockholders must be received by the Company at its principal office

                           NOTICE TO BENEFICIARIES OF
               THE INVESTMENT PARTNERSHIP AND THE CHOICE PAY PLAN
                             OF ANALOG DEVICES, INC.
        OF THE 1994 ANNUAL MEETING OF ANALOG DEVICES, INC. STOCKHOLDERS


        The Investment Partnership (TIP) and the Choice Pay Plan (CPP) (the
"Plans") of Analog Devices, Inc. (the "Company") provide, in part, that
Fidelity Management Trust Company, the Trustee under the Plans (the "Trustee"),
shall obey the directions, if any, of the beneficiaries of the Plans with
respect to any voting rights pertaining to their respective interests in shares
of the Company's Common Stock held in Fund D of each Plan.



        The Annual Meeting of Stockholders will be held on Tuesday, March 8,
1994 at 10:00 a.m. (Eastern Standard Time) at the World Trade Center Boston,
Commonwealth Pier, Boston, Massachusetts, for the following purposes:


        1.      To elect three members of the Board of Directors to serve as
                Class I Directors for a term of three years;



        2.      To ratify the selection of Ernst & Young as the Company's
                independent auditors; and



        3.      To transact such other business as may properly come before the
                meeting or any adjournment or adjournments of the meeting.



        The enclosed Proxy Statement describes the matters to be acted upon at
the meeting and contains information required to be disclosed in connection
with the solicitation of proxies for the meeting.  The enclosed proxy card
identifies, in addition to any shares you may own of record in your own name,
the number of shares of the Company's Common Stock in Fund D that you may
direct the Trustee to vote on your behalf.  The proxy card should be signed and
returned in the enclosed envelope to The First National Bank of Boston (the
"Bank").  The Bank will notify the Trustee of the manner in which you have
voted your shares on the proxy card.  The Trustee will vote the shares held in
Fund D in your account within the Plans in the manner directed on the proxy
card.  If the Bank does not receive a signed proxy card from you by 5:00 p.m.
Eastern Standard Time on March 2, 1994, there is no assurance that the Trustee
will be able to follow your instructions.  If you fail to timely submit your
proxy card to the Bank, the Trustee will vote your shares of Common Stock held
in Fund D of the Plans in the same manner, proportionally, as it votes the
other shares of Common Stock for which proper and timely voting instructions of
other Plans participants have been received by the Trustee.  With respect to
any other business which may be properly brought before the meeting that was not
specified in the Proxy Statement, the Trustee or its proxy may vote on such
matters as it deems advisable in its discretion.


        In order for the Trustee to compute and tabulate participants'
instructions prior to the meeting and thus to insure that your shares of Common
Stock will be voted pursuant to your instructions you must complete, sign,
date and return the accompanying proxy card, using the enclosed envelope, to the
Bank no later than March 2, 1994.  While the Trustee will attempt to honor
instructions on proxy cards received by the Bank after March 2, 1994, and prior
to the date of the Annual Meeting, there can be no assurance that such shares
will be voted according to your instructions.  Accordingly, if you do not
return your proxy card at all or if your proxy card is received too late for
the necessary procedures to be followed, your shares of Common Stock held in
Fund D of the Plans will be voted for you in the manner described above.  You
cannot vote your shares of Common Stock beneficially owned in the Plans in
person at the Annual Meeting of Stockholders.  You may, however, vote in person
any shares of Common Stock you own of record in your name.


        The Board of Directors of the Company believes it is important that
employee-stockholders and Beneficiaries of the Plans feel free to express their
opinions on matters to be acted upon by the stockholders independently from
any connection with their employment status.  The Board of Directors and the
Trustee will not attempt to discover the manner in which any individual
employee-stockholder has voted or in which any individual beneficiary of the
Plans has instructed the Trustee to vote.  Individual proxy cards received by
the Bank and the Trustee will be held in complete confidence and will be used
only for the purposes of determining how your shares of Common Stock will be
voted.


        The Trustee has been advised by the Company that all Beneficiaries of
the Plans should have received a copy of the Company's Annual Report prior to
the receipt of this notice.  If, for any reason, you have not received an
Annual Report or if you wish to have an additional copy, please write, call
(617-329-4700) or visit Analog Devices, Inc.'s office at One Technology Way,
P.O. Box 9106, Norwood, Massachusetts 02062-9106, and a copy will be provided
to you free of charge.


        The number of shares indicated on the enclosed proxy card (if you own
shares in your own name, the Plan shares will be identified separately) is
that represented by your interest in Fund D of the Plans as of January 14,
1994.  If you have any questions about the manner in which this number was
computed or about any other matter in this notice, please contact Kathleen
Pittman, Benefits Manager of Analog Devices, Inc.  Please be advised that the
Trustee cannot undertake to advise you concerning your decision.  If you have
any procedural questions or need a new proxy card, please contact Kathleen
Pittman, Benefits Manager of Analogy Devices, Inc.


        All Beneficiaries of the Plans are extended a cordial invitation to
attend this meeting.
