By: SiliconExpert on January 27th, 2021

Analog Devices has announced that changing business needs will require the company to permanently close its facility in Milpitas, California on May 28, 2021.

In 2016, Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) acquired Linear Technology which included four of their wafer fabs.  It is there he plan was to shut down the smallest of the original Linear  four wafer fabslocated  in Milpitas, California.

This decision was made after a comprehensive review of the company’s future manufacturing requirements. ADI’s remaining three fabs (including a fab in Camas, Washington that was also acquired in the Linear Technology  acquisition)combined with ADI’s existing supply chainprovide ample capacity for growth into the near future. Announcing this closure well in advance of the actual date provides transparency to their affected employees but also is an effort to reassuretheir customers that there will be no interruption to their supply.
