Section 1 - Conflict Minerals Disclosure


Item 1.01

Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report


Cohu, Inc. (“Cohu”, “we”, “our” and “us”) is committed to sourcing components and materials from companies that share our values regarding respect for human rights, integrity and environmental responsibility. 


Section 1502 of the Dodd Frank Financial Reform Act and U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission‘s Final Regulation to Implement Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Act both require reporting entities to exercise due diligence regarding the origin and chain of custody of the conflict minerals contained in their manufactured products. If the due diligence inquiry determines that the conflict minerals originated in the covered countries (Angola, Burundi, Central Africa Republic, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia), the company is then obligated to determine whether the minerals financed or benefitted armed groups in the covered countries.


The foregoing description is qualified in its entirety by our Conflict Minerals Report, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 1.01 and is incorporated by reference. A copy of Cohu’s Conflict Minerals Report is also publicly available at:
