Exhibit 1.01




Section 1: Introduction

This is the Conflict Minerals Report of Analog Devices, Inc. (“Analog Devices”, “we”, “our”) for calendar year 2016 in accordance with Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Rule 13p-1”). Numerous terms in this Report are defined in Rule 13p-1 and Form SD and the reader is referred to those sources and to 1934 Act Release No. 34-67716 (August 22, 2012) for such definitions and explanations thereof.

Gold, tantalum, tin or tungsten (collectively, “conflict minerals”) are necessary to the functionality or production of products manufactured or contracted to be manufactured by Analog Devices. Such products include Integrated Circuits, Assembled Products and Evaluation Boards, which (depending on the product) contain one or more conflict minerals (collectively, the “Products”). Based on the Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry described below, Analog Devices either knows that necessary conflict minerals originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country (collectively, “Covered Countries”) and are not from recycled or scrap sources, or has reason to believe that necessary conflict minerals may have originated in the Covered Countries and has reason to believe that they may not be from recycled or scrap sources. Accordingly we undertook due diligence to determine whether the necessary conflict minerals in the Products did originate or may have originated in the Covered Countries.

Analog Devices is many steps removed from the mining of the conflict minerals; we do not purchase raw ore or unrefined conflict minerals, and we do no purchasing in the Covered Countries. We either purchase conflict minerals indirectly from a smelter or refiner for use in our manufacturing processes or purchase components from suppliers that incorporate conflict minerals. The mine or other point of origin of conflict minerals cannot be determined with any certainty once the raw ores are smelted, refined and converted to ingots, bullion or other conflict-mineral containing derivatives. Smelters and refiners are consolidating points for raw ore and are therefore in the best position in the total supply chain to know the origin of the ores. Our due diligence measures were based on multi-industry initiatives with the smelters and refiners of conflict minerals who provide those conflict minerals to Analog Devices’ suppliers.

Section 1.1: Company Overview

Analog Devices, Inc. is a world leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of a broad portfolio of solutions that leverage high-performance analog, mixed-signal and digital signal processing technology, including integrated circuits (ICs), algorithms, software, and subsystems. We were incorporated in Massachusetts in 1965. On March 10, 2017 we acquired Linear Technology Corporation (Linear Technology), a designer, manufacturer and marker of high performance analog ICs. Our headquarters are near Boston, in Norwood, Massachusetts. In addition, we have manufacturing facilities in the United States, Ireland, Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines, and have design facilities worldwide. Since our inception in 1965, we have focused on solving the engineering challenges associated with signal processing in virtually all types of electronic equipment. Our signal processing products play a fundamental role in converting, conditioning, and processing real-world phenomena such as temperature, pressure, sound, light, speed and motion into electrical signals to be used in a wide array of electronic devices. As new generations of applications, such as the Internet of Things, evolve, new needs for

high-performance analog signal processing and digital signal processing (DSP) technology are generated. We focus on sensing, measurement, and connectivity challenges that apply to a diverse set of customers and markets. We combine data converters, amplifiers and linear products, radio frequency (RF) ICs, power management products, sensors based on micro-electro mechanical systems (MEMS) technology and other sensors, and processing products, including DSP, micro controllers and other processors, into technology platforms that we adapt to specific customer and market needs, leveraging our engineering investment across a broad base of customers.

We focus on key strategic markets where our signal processing technology is often a critical differentiator in our customers’ products, in particular, the industrial, automotive, consumer and communications markets.

Section 1.2 Principal Products

We design, manufacture and market a broad line of high-performance ICs that incorporate analog, mixed-signal and digital signal processing technologies. Our ICs are designed to address a wide range of real-world signal processing applications. We sell our ICs to tens of thousands of customers worldwide, many of whom use products spanning our core technologies in a wide range of applications. Our IC product portfolio includes both general-purpose products used by a broad range of customers and applications, as well as application-specific products designed for specific clusters of customers in key target markets. By using readily available, high-performance, general-purpose products in their systems, our customers can reduce the time they need to bring new products to market. Given the high cost of developing more customized ICs, our standard products often provide a cost-effective solution for many low to medium volume applications. We also focus on working with leading customers to design application-specific solutions. We begin with our existing core technologies, which leverage our data conversion, amplification, RF and microwave, MEMS, power management and DSP capabilities, and devise a solution to more closely meet the needs of a specific customer or group of customers. Because we have already developed the core technology platform for our general-purpose products, we can create application-specific solutions quickly.

We produce and market a broad range of ICs and operate in one reportable segment based on the aggregation of eight operating segments. The ICs sold by each of our operating segments are manufactured using similar semiconductor manufacturing processes and raw materials in either our own production facilities or by third-party wafer fabricators using proprietary processes. Our ICs are sold to customers globally through a direct sales force, third-party distributors, independent sales representatives and via our website. Our ten highest revenue products, in the aggregate, accounted for approximately 13% of our revenue for our fiscal year ended October 29, 2016 (fiscal 2016).

Section 2: Conflict Minerals Policy

Analog Devices has adopted a Conflict Minerals Policy. The ADI Conflict Minerals Policy is publicly available on our website ( and is a key component of our conflict minerals program framework systems. This policy:


  reflects ADI’s commitment to ethical practices and compliance with applicable laws and regulations,

  includes ADI’s actions to collaborate with other concerned electronics companies, under the EICC-GeSI Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative (CFSI), in developing methods to track the origin of conflict minerals used in the manufacture of electronic products,


  reflects ADI’s support of the Conflict-Free Smelter Program (CFSP) in assessing activities, processes, and systems used by the smelter or refiner (SOR) facility to conduct upstream supply chain due diligence of minerals for conflict-affected and high-risk areas, and


  is communicated to ADI’s supply chain with the expectation of compliance with the conflict minerals policy, and for the suppliers to provide sourcing information using the EICC-GeSI Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (EICC-GeSI CMRT) as a standard.

Section 3: Conflict Minerals Team

An internal team is tasked to implement our Conflict Minerals Policy and oversee ADI’s conflict minerals program. The Director of Environmental, Health, & Safety (EH&S), who reports to the Senior Vice President of Global Operations and Technology, is the assigned team leader and is supported by representatives from different functional groups.

Section 4: Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (RCOI)

Analog Devices engaged with our relevant suppliers to identify the smelters and refiners in our supply chain. We define relevant suppliers as those who supply materials to the Company that are known to contain any or all of the conflict minerals and that end up in our final products. We utilized an online platform to reach out to our relevant suppliers to request conflict minerals sourcing information using the EICC-GeSI Conflict Minerals Reporting Template (CMRT). Information provided by our relevant suppliers is reviewed for completeness and reasonableness, based on our knowledge of the supplier. If necessary, assessment reports were created to outline additional actions needed from suppliers regarding their submission, including but not limited to follow-up and escalation.

Section 5: Due Diligence


  A. Design of Analog Devices’ due diligence framework

Analog Devices designed our due diligence measures to conform, in all material respects, with the internationally recognized due diligence framework in the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas: Second Edition (OECD 2013) (“OECD Framework”), including related supplements for each of the conflict minerals.


  B. Description of Analog Devices’ due diligence measures performed with respect to products manufactured during 2016

Analog Devices’ due diligence measures performed with respect to products manufactured during 2016 included:


  Comparing the smelters and refiners identified by relevant suppliers via the CMRT against the CFSI list of smelter and refinery facilities that have received a “conflict free” designation for conflict minerals by participating in an independent third party smelter audit. We also validated the smelters status using CFSI’s Active Smelters and Refiners List.


  Gathering more information on smelters or refiners (SORs) that are not listed on the references mentioned above by working with the SOR directly, contacting the SOR indirectly through our suppliers, or conducting internet research. If the result of this data collection process indicates that the SOR is legitimately processing conflict minerals, we forward the SOR information to CFSI for further research. If, however, the result reveals that the SOR is not legitimate, we work with our supplier to conduct additional research on the SOR and to obtain information indicating that it is legitimate, otherwise, the supplier is asked to remove the alleged smelter from the supplier CMRT.


  Reaching out directly to SORs who are no longer certified as conflict-free by a recognized certification program to gather information regarding their plans of recertification, or lack thereof. If the SOR decided not to pursue recertification, we will ask our supplier to discontinue engagement with the smelter.


  Reaching out directly to the CFSI to gather additional information regarding questionable smelters. This include but are not limited to smelters who have been on the Active list (i.e., smelters who have been in the audit process but have not completed it) for more than 6 months, smelters whose certification status have expired, or newly added smelters.


  Working with our suppliers to strongly encourage smelters in our supply chain to participate in the CFSP or a similar program and to cease sourcing from SOR who decline to participate in a CFSP or similar program.


  Collaborating with suppliers to ensure accuracy of information being passed down the supply chain.


  Pursuing non-responsive suppliers to obtain a CMRT. Suppliers who failed to provide survey information were escalated to our purchasing group and the supplier’s management group. We will take measures up to and including termination of our relationship with the supplier, if warranted.

Section 6: Risk Management Plan

The OECD guidelines for managing risk are largely directed towards the upstream portion of the supply chain (SORs and mines of origin). Nevertheless, ADI as a downstream company in the supply chain, participates in the Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative (CFSI) under the EICC-GeSI industry consortium to identify and review the due diligence process of the smelters or refiners in the electronics industry supply chain. CFSI assesses and audits whether the SORs adhere to the due diligence measures per the OECD Guidance; compliant SORs are then designated as “conflict free” and listed as such on the CFSI website.

Our Risk Mitigation process includes the following:


  In the event that a supplier reports on the EICC-GeSI Conflict Minerals Reporting Template or it is discovered that the SOR has used conflict minerals sourced from mines that support armed conflict in the Covered Countries, then we work with the SOR to obtain its agreement to take steps to rectify the situation, including implementing corrective action to eliminate the use of non-DRC conflict free minerals in products supplied for ADI products, in an agreed upon timeframe. Should the SOR fail to mitigate the issue, ADI will discontinue engagement with the SOR.

  ADI will continue to work with our suppliers and with CFSI to encourage smelters who have not yet obtained the “conflict-free” designation to do so.

Findings, including the number of SORs which are designated as conflict–free and suppliers which reported conflict-free status of all its SORs during the preceding quarter relative to the total number of SORs and suppliers in the ADI supply chain, the number of SORs whose sources of minerals are undeterminable, and any supplier reporting use of minerals sourced from conflict mines are reported to the Senior Vice President of Global Operations and Technology and staff members quarterly.

The responses from our suppliers listed 306 entities as smelters or refiners of conflict minerals in their supply chains. A recognized conflict free audit program verified 244 of these entities as conflict-free. The following is a summary of the smelters used by our suppliers broken out by mineral type:


Metal      Total Known Smelters Used        Conflict-Free Smelters  


   135      93


     44      44


     83      67


     44      40


   306    244

Section 7: Other Matters

Based on the information provided by our suppliers through December 31, 2016, we believe that the facilities that may have been used to process conflict minerals in our products include the refiners listed in Annex I below.

After exercising the due diligence described above, Analog Devices concluded that some of its necessary conflict minerals originated in the Covered Countries. Analog Devices was unable to determine whether or not such conflict minerals directly or indirectly financed an armed group in the Covered Countries. Based on information provided by our suppliers, as well as from the RCOI data from CFSI, Analog Devices believes the countries of origin of the conflict minerals contained in our products may include the countries listed in Annex II below.

Analog Devices will undertake the following steps during the next compliance period to continue to improve the due diligence conducted and to further mitigate the risk that our necessary conflict minerals benefit armed groups, including:


  Continue to participate in industry initiatives, such as the CFSI.


  Continue to contact smelters identified as a result of the RCOI process and request their participation in obtaining a “conflict free” designation from an industry program such as the CFSP program or equivalent, if they have not already done so.


  Integrate the recently acquired Linear Technology operations into our conflict-free minerals program.
