NORWOOD, Mass. -- September 5, 2013

Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI), in partnership with Xilinx Inc., MathWorks
Inc. and Avnet Electronics Marketing is offering analog, mixed-signal and
embedded systems engineers the opportunity to learn from leading,
high-performance signal processing industry experts during the ADI Design
Conference: Virtual Event on Sept. 25, 2013. Watch this short video to learn
more about the ADI Design Conference.

Attendees of the online event will learn about signal chain and system-level
solutions for complex design challenges, advanced techniques for
high-performance signal processing and software modeling tools. Additionally,
event partners Xilinx, MathWorks and Avnet Electronics Marketing will showcase
their industry-leading solutions based on ADI’s analog and mixed-signal
technologies. The event will take place from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. EDT with
a live keynote speaker and interactive Q&A sessions.

  *For those who cannot attend, all the information and resources will be
    archived and available on-demand following the event.

The keynote, “Analog Design in an Increasingly Digital World,” will be
presented by Analog Devices Fellow and IEEE Life Fellow Barrie Gilbert. Barrie
is one of the best-known designers of analog ICs in the industry. He will
share his thoughts on the necessity of analog processing in modern products,
advances in process technology and the unique potential of analog solutions.

“Xilinx and Analog Devices have worked together to co-develop kits and
reference designs that combine FPGAs, data converters and high-speed serial
interconnects for easier system integration and faster time to market,” said
Raj Seelam, director of Solutions Marketing at Xilinx. “Educational
conferences such as these extend our collaboration and help designers
understand how to better meet the demands of multi-channel, data-intensive
applications.”

The virtual event will include 16 technical sessions with associated
demonstrations addressing key issues for applications in aerospace and
defense, high-speed RF communications, process control, motor control and
instrumentation. Event attendees will be introduced to new system-ready
hardware, software and tools, and learn how to simplify their design process
across the entire signal processing ecosystem, ranging from high-performance
analog and mixed-signal circuits to Xilinx All Programmable FPGAs, MathWorks
modeling tools, and ready to order kits from Avnet.

Modeled on Design Conference 2013, a successful global educational series
which the companies hosted earlier this year, the virtual live event will
include a simulated conference hall, networking lounge and demo exhibition
with booths manned by their respective representatives, delivering a seamless,
easy-to-use conference experience. Attendees will have access to the relevant
data sheets, circuit notes, design files, reference projects, and other
resources that they’ve viewed during the conference, with the option to
download them to their computer or tablet in one easy click. Visitors will
also be invited to ask questions and get real-time answers from the experts
with live chat and email capabilities.
