Analog Devices Vice President to Deliver ISSCC Keynote Address.

NORWOOD, Mass. -- Analog Devices Inc. (NYSE: ADI) announced that Lewis W. Counts, Vice President of Technology for the company's Analog Semiconductor Components Division and an ADI Fellow, is presenting one of the three keynote addresses at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), the leading forum for the presentation of advances in integrated circuits. Mr. Counts is delivering his address, "Analog and Mixed-Signal Innovation: The Process-Circuit-System-Application Interaction," at 10:15 a.m. Pacific Standard Time at the San Francisco Marriot Hotel on February 12, 2007.

In his address, Mr. Counts will discuss the need for innovation in analog and mixed-signal electronics to ensure continued semiconductor-industry growth. He will present the challenges facing technologists as they work to reduce power consumption and cost-per-function in each successive IC generation, while operating under physical design and manufacturing constraints caused by increasingly demanding applications.

In keeping with the 2007 ISSCC conference theme, "The Four Dimensions of IC Innovation," Mr. Counts will discuss the industry's need for a holistic, interdisciplinary approach to solving problems and meeting target system specifications to reduce system costs. He will also address the essential combination of process, design, and system architecture, in solving problems for future applications.

A recognized leader in the industry, Mr. Counts has designed and managed the development of amplifiers and analog signal-processing circuits, for 30 years. His designs include op amps, log-antilog circuits, multipliers, dividers, multi-function components, and rms-to-dc converters. As an ADI fellow, Mr. Counts has achieved the highest level of technical advancement within Analog Devices, and is recognized for his creativity and outstanding technical contributions to the company.

The annual ISSSC, hosted by the IEEE Solid-State Circuit Society, is attended by industry experts and engineers working at the cutting-edge of IC design and application. For more information about ISSSC, please visit
