ANALOG DEVICES SAYS INTERNATIONAL TRADE COMMISSION EXCLUSION ORDER
 HAS NO EFFECT ON COMPANY
 NORWOOD, Mass., Feb. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Analog Devices, Inc. (NYSE: ADI) reports that the International Trade Commission Exclusion Order against Analog Devices and four other companies issued on Feb. 18, 1992, barring the importation and sale of any plastic encapsulated integrated circuit or board-level product that infringes Texas Instruments Inc.'s (TI) patent for a plastic encapsulation process, will not affect the supply of those products to Analog Devices' customers.
 William Wise, corporate counsel to Analog Devices, said, "The Exclusion Order's provisions do not apply to products licensed by TI." Wise further said, "The Commission had previously decided not to review and thus affirmed a finding by the Administrative Law Judge that Analog Devices had a license under the TI patent which would allow it to import plastic encapsulated integrated circuit products into the United States up to a certain dollar amount. That amount presently covers all of Analog's plastic encapsulated integrated circuit products. The Commission's Order will thus have no effect on Analog's ability to continue its importation of plastic encapsulated integrated circuit products into the United States, and Analog will accordingly by able to supply those products to its customers without any restrictions."
 With fiscal 1992 revenues of $538 million. Analog Devices is a leading manufacturer of precision, high-performance integrated circuits used in analog and digital signal processing applications. The company employs approximately 5,200 people worldwide and has manufacturing facilities in Massachusetts, California, North Carolina, Ireland, Japan, the Philippines and Taiwan.
