Company Profile
Microchip Technology Inc. is a leading provider of microcontroller and analog semiconductors, providing low-risk product development, lower total system cost and faster time to market for thousands of diverse customer applications worldwide. Headquartered in Chandler, Arizona, Microchip offers outstanding technical support along with dependable delivery and quality. Microchip Technology Incorporated and all related affiliates (collectively, “Microchip”) share the global concern regarding the human tragedies occurring in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the adjoining countries associated, in part, with the mining of columbite-tantalite (tantalum), cassiterite (tin), wolframite (tungsten), and gold (3TG). These minerals originate from various continents, but armed groups engaged in, or interfering with mining operations within the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the adjoining countries (the Dodd-Frank “Covered Countries”) are subjecting people to human rights violations and using proceeds from the sale of these Conflict Minerals to finance and sustain regional conflicts. Microchip supports responsible mineral sourcing. We recognize the need to develop programs that allow for improved transparency in the 3TG supply chains. Our goal is to provide reasonable assurance that all integrated circuits manufactured by Microchip are DRC conflict free. In calendar year 2015, we made substantial progress toward that goal. We successfully removed smelters from our integrated circuits supply chain that were uncooperative with the CFSI Conflict Free Smelter Program. As of December 22, 2015, all smelters and refiners remaining in Microchip’s integrated circuits supply chain are listed on: the CFSI’s “compliant smelter” list, the CFSI’s “active smelter” list, or the TI-CMC’s “active smelter” list. Our independent due diligence research did not identify conflict minerals sourcing risk from the current “active smelters”. Should mineral sourcing risks be identified, they will be presented to our executive management for discussion and, as appropriate, action.
