Stocks in this article: ADI

Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI) today announced that it has completed the previously-announced sale of the assets of its microphone product line to InvenSense, Inc. (NYSE: INVN).

Additional amounts will be payable to ADI over the next twelve months upon the achievement of certain revenue milestones by InvenSense based on microphone sales.
