Analog Devices chooses Anaqua


International semiconductor company Analog Devices has chosen Anaqua to manage its intellectual property portfolio, which includes more than 14,000 patents.

Analog designs and manufactures analog, mixed-signal, and DSP integrated circuits in all types of electronic equipment.

Anaqua is an IP management and analytics company headquartered in Boston and used by nearly a million IP executives, attorneys, paralegals and administrators worldwide.

Benjamin Brown, assistant general counsel for IP at Analog Devices, said: “We needed a system we could trust, that could automate tasks now done manually, and one that could easily scale to match our growth.”

“Anaqua’s software matched our vision and will help us better manage how we’re using our resources and understanding the return we’re getting from our IP spend.”

Bob Romeo, CEO of Anaqua, said: “We are pleased to welcome Analog Devices to our growing list of tech clients.”

“It’s impressive to have a leader in the semiconductor space demonstrate that our software and services are the best solution for IP management.”
