(e) On September 24, 2009, the Board of Directors and its Compensation Committee (the "Compensation Committee") of Maxim Integrated Products, Inc.

Such cash bonuses awarded to the principal executive officer and other named executive officers are as set forth below:

Former Vice President


(1) Approximately $2.99 million was awarded in performance bonuses to all 20 of the Company's officers with a title of vice president and above for fiscal year 2009 performance, of which approximately $2.8 million was calculated and determined under the Officer Compensation Plan previously disclosed on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 24, 2007 and described in the Proxy Statement for our 2008 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, and approximately $191,000 was awarded outside of the Officer Compensation Plan for extraordinary effort.  The amount of the aggregate bonus pool under the Officer Compensation Plan was calculated using the following company-wide performance metrics: (i) the achievement of growth targets for non-GAAP operating profit before taxes (excluding non-recurring items and stock-based compensation), (ii) the Company's stock price performance relative to the Philadelphia Semiconductor Index (SOX), and (iii) the achievement of targets for return on invested capital.  In addition, each officer's share of the aggregate bonus pool was dependent upon position points and personal performance during fiscal year 2009.

(2) Mr. Hood, a Named Executive Officer during fiscal year 2009, retired from employment at the Company in July 2009 after the completion of fiscal year 2009.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
