Misuse, Grey Market and Counterfeiting of Products
Combating the unauthorized resale or diversion, and the unintended misuse of products and technologies, is a challenge the entire semiconductor industry faces and one which Analog Devices, Inc. ("ADI") takes very seriously.
As a global public company, ADI is committed to complying with applicable laws and regulations in the countries where we operate. ADI is also committed to taking appropriate actions to mitigate the misuse or diversion of our products. ADI has implemented a robust and comprehensive program to identify and counter this activity, which includes conducting due diligence, auditing, enhanced monitoring to identify and remove bad actors from our value chain and taking corrective action where appropriate. ADI has formalized and expanded a team focused on grey market mitigation controls and to monitor for product misuse.
ADI parts should only be purchased from authorized distributors or from ADI directly. Products not purchased from ADI authorized sources – including purchases through brokers, resellers, or third-party online marketplaces – may be counterfeit or unreliable. Counterfeit products are not manufactured, packaged, labeled, stored, shipped, or handled according to ADI's standards. ADI does not warrant or provide support for any parts purchased through unauthorized channels.
ADI strictly prohibits unauthorized resale of its products. ADI does not support or condone the use of its products in end applications for which they were not designed or intended, and also does not support illicit diversion of its products for unauthorized uses or to sanctioned countries or entities. We will continue to look for ways to identify and prevent third party attempts to engage in these activities.
ADI actively works with trade associations, including the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), distribution channel partners, external parties, and cooperates with government agencies to combat counterfeiting, product misuse and illicit diversion. You can refer to the SIA's statement on combatting illicit chip diversion here.
