Dear Echelon Customers & Partners, 

On May 10th, 2019, the US Government increased previously imposed tariffs from 10% to 25% under Section 301 of the US Trade Act on a vast number of products manufactured in China. This change had an effective date of June 1, 2019 for all product that ships to locations in the United States. Customs has already begun collecting the additional duties on products that are affected. 

The Embedded Systems Division of Adesto Technologies Corporation (formerly Echelon), will begin adding a 10% tariff surcharge on those affected products that are shipping to the United States and its territories where tariffs apply. Unless otherwise notified, this additional charge will be invoiced as a separate line on all orders received as of May 30th, 2019, and on any backlog against orders already received that are scheduled to ship after June 30th, 2019. 

We at Adesto Technologies Corporation values your business and appreciates your patience and understanding. If you have any questions, please contact your Adesto sales representative or email

Chris Jodoin
Vice President & General Manager, Embedded Systems Division
