NORWOOD, Mass. -- March 22, 2013

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI: NASDAQ) today announced the availability of a
low-cost hardware-software solution focusing on circuit testing designed for
the engineering education market. This offering combines MATLAB software and
Analog Devices’ Digilent Analog Discovery Design kits, enabling students to
experiment quickly and easily with advanced technologies and build, test and
analyze real-world, functional analog design circuits anytime – anywhere – for
the price of a textbook. The Analog Discovery Design Kit costs $99 USD.
Students can access MATLAB by purchasing a MATLAB Student Version license or
through a site license that may be available from their university. Watch the

“The combination of MATLAB and the Analog Devices’ Digilent design kits
provides a very flexible, powerful learning solution,” said Kathleen Meehan,
Associate Professor in the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer
Engineering, Virginia Tech. “I don’t need to maintain a traditional large lab
for my engineering students. Instead, students complete experiments after
class, where and when they want with the analog design kit and analyze the
data and write lab reports with MATLAB.”

MATLAB and ADI Analog Discovery Integration

MATLAB and the Data Acquisition Toolbox Support Package for Analog Discovery
hardware allow students to acquire signals directly from the Analog Discovery
as well as filter and analyze data. This integration allows students to
develop a deeper understanding of the circuits they are building and
reinforces MATLAB skills they are already learning in other classes. Each
Analog Discovery is the size of a deck of cards, portable and features two
oscilloscopes, two waveform generators, two power supplies and a logic
analyzer. The Analog Discovery is manufactured by Digilent, Inc., and powered
by Analog Devices components.
