Compensation Committee

During the first and second quarters of 2013, Digital Optics Corporation (“DOC”), a subsidiary of Tessera Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”), manufactured and sold camera module products as to which “conflict minerals” (as defined in Section 1, item 1.01(d)(3) of Form SD) were necessary to the functionality or production of such products.  DOC ceased offering such products in April 2013, and no products containing conflict minerals have been manufactured for commercial production by the Company or any of its subsidiaries since that time.  The Company has no plans to manufacture or sell any products containing conflict minerals in the future.  DOC was several levels removed from the actual mining or smelting of conflict minerals.  The Company does not make purchases of conflict minerals except to the extent they were used in manufacturing processes by DOC’s suppliers, and makes no purchases in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or any country that shares an internationally recognized border with the Democratic Republic of the Congo (collectively, the “Covered Countries”). The Company has conducted a reasonable country of origin inquiry consisting of a supply-chain survey with its direct suppliers during 2013 using the EICC/GeSI Conflict Minerals Reporting Template.  All of the conflict minerals used in the Company’s products during such period were provided by its suppliers.  As a result of this reasonable country of origin inquiry, all suppliers who contributed necessary conflict minerals to Company products offered or sold to customers during 2013 provided a response to the supply-chain survey.  The supply-chain survey identified a number of countries of origin of the conflict minerals used by suppliers, which did not include any Covered Countries. 

This Conflict Minerals Disclosure is also available on the Investor Relations page of the Company’s website at
