Lexington Couple and their Semiconductor Company Indicted on Charges of Theft of Trade Secrets from Norwood Semiconductor Company


BOSTON – A naturalized U.S. citizen living in Lexington, his wife, and a company they established were charged today in a 24-count superseding indictment in connection with the theft of hundreds of files containing proprietary information from Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), a worldwide semiconductor company headquartered in Norwood.

波士頓 — 今天,一名居住在萊剋星頓的歸化美國公民、他的妻子以及他們成立的一家公司遭到24項起訴,罪名是盜竊總部位於諾伍德的全球半導體公司類比設備Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI)的數百份包含專有權資訊的檔。

Haoyang Yu, a/k/a “Jack Yu,” a/k/a “Harry Yu,” a/k/a “Jack Tricon,” 41, of Lexington, and his company, Tricon MMIC LLC (Tricon), were charged with three counts of possession and attempted possession of a trade secret; two counts of smuggling; two counts of transporting stolen goods; one count of visa fraud; and one count of procuring U.S. citizenship unlawfully. Yu and his wife, Yanzhi Chen, 22, also of Lexington, were also charged with three counts of wire fraud and aiding and abetting wire fraud. Yu was previously charged by indictment in June 2019 with stealing, copying, downloading, and possessing ADI’s trade secrets.

41歲的萊剋星頓的餘浩洋, “Jack Yu”,又名 “Harry Yu”,又名 “Jack Tricon”,和他的公司Tricon MMIC LLC (Tricon),被控三項擁有和企圖擁有商業秘密罪;兩項走私罪;兩項運輸贓物罪;一項簽證欺詐指控;一項非法取得美國國籍指控。余和他22歲的妻子陳彥之,也是萊剋星頓人,同樣也被指控犯有三項:電報詐騙,協助和教唆電報詐騙罪。餘在2019年6月被起訴,罪名是竊取、複製、下載和擁有ADI公司的商業機密。

According to the superseding indictment, Yu was born in Harbin, China, and first came to the United States in 2002 through the student visa program. He became a lawful permanent resident in June 2009, and a naturalized U.S. citizen in March 2017. From July 2014 to July 2017, Yu was employed by ADI as a principal design engineer.


As alleged in the indictment, Yu worked for ADI designing and developing parts of monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), which are used in radio, cellular and satellite communications, as well as in defense and aerospace applications. As a result of his work, Yu had access to data and information relating to ADI’s present and future product designs, schematics, manufacturing files and testing procedures. It is alleged that, while working for ADI, Yu downloaded hundreds of highly confidential schematic design and modeling files that belonged to ADI, and uploaded many of these files to his personal Google drive account. The files YU stole from ADI were worth millions of dollars.  

如起訴書所稱,余曾在ADI公司設計和開發單片微波積體電路(MMICs)的部件,這些部件用於無線電、蜂窩和衛星通信,以及國防和航空航太應用。由於工作關係,餘可以接觸到與ADI公司當前和未來的產品設計、原理圖、製造檔和測試程式有關的資料和資訊。據稱,餘在ADI公司工作期間,下載了數百個屬於ADI公司的高度機密的原理圖設計和建模檔,並將其中許多檔上傳到其個人的Google 雲端硬碟帳戶。餘從ADI公司竊取的文件價值數百萬美元。

In March 2017, approximately five months before he resigned from ADI, Yu and his wife established Tricon, which, according to its website, “specializes in wide band MMIC amplifiers,” and serves customers in “defense and aerospace, test and instrumentation, [and] satellite communications.”

2017年3月,也就是在他從ADI辭職前約5個月,餘和他的妻子成立了Tricon公司,據其網站介紹,該公司 “專注於寬頻MMIC放大器”,服務於 “國防和航空航太、測試和儀器儀錶、[和]衛星通信 “領域的客戶們。

On July 31, 2017, Yu allegedly resigned from ADI and signed an agreement affirming that he had surrendered all proprietary information or data. Nevertheless, in December 2018 and again in June 2019, Yu allegedly had propriety ADI files in his possession both in his Google drive account and on his personal computers. Since creating Tricon in March 2017, Yu marketed and sold approximately 20 ADI designs as his own, and even used the same Taiwanese semiconductor fabrication plant as ADI to manufacture Tricon’s MMIC parts. The superseding indictment alleges that the defendants fraudulently obtained MMIC and other semiconductor parts from the Taiwanese semiconductor fabrication plant by providing the plant with ADI’s stolen designs and other proprietary information, and furthermore concealed the fact that the designs were stolen from ADI.

據稱,2017年7月31日,餘從ADI辭職,並簽署了一份協定,確認他已交出所有專有權資訊或資料。然而,在2018年12月和2019年6月,據稱,餘在他的Google drive帳戶和個人電腦上顯示擁有ADI專有權文件。自2017年3月創建Tricon以來,餘將大約20個ADI設計作為自己的設計進行銷售,甚至使用與AID相同的臺灣半導體製造廠為Tricon製造單片微波積體電路部件。該取代起訴書稱,被告通過向臺灣半導體製造廠提供從ADI公司盜取的設計和其它專有權資訊,從該廠騙取單片微波積體電路和其它半導體部件,並進一步隱瞞了從ADI公司盜取設計的事實。

Yu and Tricon also allegedly smuggled export-controlled technology from the United States to Taiwan without obtaining the necessary export license from the U.S. Department of Commerce.


Finally, the superseding indictment alleges that Yu committed visa fraud and procured U.S. citizenship unlawfully by failing to disclose material facts and information concerning the theft of ADI’s trade secrets in his Application for Naturalization (Form N-400), which he submitted to the U.S Department of Homeland Security in or about February 2017.


The charge of wire fraud provides for a sentence of up to 20 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. All other charges each provide for a sentence of up to 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based upon the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.


United States Attorney Andrew Lelling; William Higgins, Special Agent in Charge of the Department of Commerce, Office of Export Enforcement, Boston Field Office; Michael Shea, Acting Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigation, Boston Field Office; Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Field Division; and Michael Wiest, Special Agent in Charge of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, Northeast Field Office made the announcement today. U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Coast Guard Investigative Service, Defense Criminal Investigative Service, the Massachusetts State Police, the Lexington Police Department and the Hingham Police Department also provided assistance with the investigation.
