Lender shall release its security interest in the Account Collateral on or after September 30, 2002 if (i) Borrowers net income, as determined in accordance with GAAP and as shown in the financial statements delivered to Lender pursuant to this Agreement is greater than Zero Dollars ($0.00) for one fiscal quarter, (ii) Borrower demonstrates to the reasonable satisfaction of Lender exercised in good faith that Borrower reasonably expects its net income to be greater than Zero Dollars ($0.00) on a going forward basis, and (iii) no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing.
6.01. Affirmative Covenants.
(a) Payment of Taxes, etc. Borrower shall pay and discharge all taxes, assessments and governmental charges or levies imposed upon it or upon its income or profits, or upon any properties belonging to it, prior to the date on which penalties attach thereto, and all lawful claims which, if unpaid, might become a Lien upon any of its properties; provided that there shall be no requirement to pay any such tax, assessment, charge, levy or claim (i) which is being contested in good faith and by appropriate proceedings or which presents no risk of seizure, forfeiture, levy or other event which could jeopardize any Collateral and (ii) for which payment in full is bonded or reserved in Borrowers financial statements.
(b) Inspection Rights. Borrower shall, at any reasonable time and from time to time, permit
Lender or any of its agents or representatives to inspect the Equipment, to examine and make copies of and abstracts from the records and books of account of, and visit the properties of, Borrower and to discuss the affairs, finances and accounts of Borrower with any of its officers or directors relating in each case to Lenders capacity as lender and secured party hereunder and with respect to the Collateral.
(c) Use; Maintenance. (i) Borrower shall, at its expense, make all necessary site preparations and cause the Equipment Collateral to be operated in accordance with any applicable manufacturers manuals or instructions. So long as no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Borrower shall have the right to quietly possess and use the Collateral as provided herein without interference by Lender. (ii) Borrower shall, at its expense, maintain the Equipment Collateral in good condition, reasonable wear and tear excepted, and comply in all material respects with all laws, rules and regulations to which the use and operation of the Equipment Collateral may be or become subject. Such obligation shall extend to repair and replacement of any partial loss or damage to the Equipment Collateral, regardless of the cause. If maintenance is mandated by manufacturer, Borrower shall obtain and keep in effect, at all times during the Term maintenance service contracts with suppliers approved by Lender, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld. All parts furnished in connection with such maintenance or repair shall immediately become part of the Equipment Collateral. All such maintenance, repair and replacement services shall be immediately paid for and discharged by Borrower with the result that no Lien will attach to the Equipment Collateral. All parts or accessories attached to or made part of the Equipment Collateral shall be new, fabricated or rebuilt and in any case shall be consistent with the applicable specifications, if any, prescribed by the manufacturer of the affected Equipment Collateral.
(d) Insurance. Unless such provisions are amended pursuant to the terms of any Loan Terms Schedule:
(i) Borrower shall, obtain and maintain for the Term, at its own expense, (x) all risk insurance against loss or damage to the Equipment Collateral, (y) commercial general liability insurance (including contractual liability, products liability and completed operations coverages) reasonably satisfactory to Lender, and (z) such other insurance against such other risks of loss and with such terms, as shall in each case be reasonably satisfactory to or reasonably required by Lender (as to carriers, amounts and otherwise). The amount of the all risk insurance shall be the greater of (x) the replacement value of the Equipment Collateral (as new) or (y) the Loan Value of the Loan Amount applicable to each Loan. Such amounts shall be determined to Lenders reasonable satisfaction as of each anniversary date of this Agreement and the appropriate amount of coverage shall be put in effect on the next succeeding renewal or inception date of such insurance.
(ii) The deductible with respect to all-risk insurance required by clause (x) above and product liability insurance required by clause (y) above shall not exceed $25,000; otherwise there shall be no deductible with respect to any insurance required to be maintained hereunder. The amount of commercial general liability insurance (other than products liability coverage and completed operations insurance) required by clause (y) above shall be at least $4,000,000 per occurrence. The amount of the products liability and completed operations insurance required by
clause (y) above shall be at least $5,000,000 per occurrence. Each all risk policy shall: (x) name Lender as sole loss payee with respect to the Equipment, (y) provide for each insurers waiver of its right of subrogation against Lender, and (z) provide that such insurance (A) shall not be invalidated by any action of, or breach of warranty by, Borrower of a provision of any of its insurance policies, and (B) shall waive set-off, counterclaim or offset against Lender. Each liability policy shall (w) name Lender as an additional insured and (x) provide that such insurance shall have cross-liability and severability of interest endorsements (which shall not increase the aggregate policy limits of Borrowers insurance). All insurance policies shall (y) provide that Borrowers insurance shall be primary without a right of contribution of Lenders insurance, if any, or any obligation on the part of Lender to pay premiums of Borrower, and (z) shall contain a clause requiring the insurer to give Lender at least 30 days prior written notice of its cancellation (other than cancellation for non-payment for which 10 days notice shall be sufficient). Borrower shall on or prior to the first Funding Date and prior to each policy renewal, furnish to Lender certificates of insurance or other evidence satisfactory to Lender that such insurance coverage is in effect.
(e) Loss; Damage; Destruction and Seizure. (i) Borrower shall bear the risk of the Equipment Collateral being lost, stolen, destroyed, damaged or seized by a governmental authority for any reason whatsoever at any time until the expiration or termination of the Term. (ii) Except as set forth in Section 6.01(e)(iii), if during the Term any item of Equipment is lost, stolen, destroyed, damaged or seized by a governmental authority for a period equal to at least the remainder of the Term (an Event of Loss), then Lender shall receive from the proceeds of insurance maintained pursuant to Section 6.01(d), from any award paid by the seizing governmental authority or, to the extent not received from the proceeds of insurance or award or both, from Borrower, on or before the Payment Date next succeeding such Event of Loss, an amount equal to the sum of (x) all accrued and unpaid Scheduled Payments with respect to such Loan due prior to or on the next such Payment Date, (y) a prepayment in an amount equal to the Stipulated Loss Value of each affected item of Equipment Collateral and (z) all other sums, if any, that shall have become due and payable hereunder with respect to such Loan, including interest at the Default Rate with respect to any past due amounts. On the date of receipt by Lender of the amount specified above with respect to each such item of Equipment Collateral subject to an Event of Loss, the provisions of this Agreement shall terminate as to such Equipment Collateral. Any proceeds of insurance maintained by Borrower pursuant to Section 6.01(d) and received by Borrower shall be paid to Lender promptly upon their receipt by Borrower. If any proceeds of insurance or awards received from governmental authorities are in excess of the amount owed under this Section 6.01(e), Lender shall promptly remit to Borrower the amount in excess of the amount owed to Lender. (iii) So long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, any proceeds of insurance maintained pursuant to Section 6.01(d) received by Lender or Borrower with respect to an item of Equipment Collateral the repair of which is practicable shall, at the election of Borrower, be applied either to the repair or replacement of such Equipment Collateral or, upon Lenders receipt of evidence of the repair or replacement of the Equipment Collateral reasonably satisfactory to Lender, to the reimbursement of Borrower for the cost of such repair or replacement. All replacement parts and equipment acquired by Borrower in replacement of Equipment Collateral pursuant to this Section 6.01(e)(iii) shall immediately become part of the Equipment Collateral upon acquisition by Borrower. Borrower shall take such actions and provide such documentation as may be reasonably requested by Lender to protect and preserve
Lenders first priority security interest and otherwise to avoid any impairment of Lenders rights under the Operative Documents, in connection with such repair or replacement. In the event that any proceeds of insurance received by Lender are in excess of the amount required to repair and replace Equipment Collateral pursuant to this Section 6.01(e)(iii) and Lender has a first priority security interest in such repaired or replaced Equipment Collateral, then Lender shall promptly remit to Borrower the excess proceeds of insurance that Lender received with respect to such Equipment Collateral.
(f) Equity Investment Right. Borrower shall permit Lender, at Lenders option, to purchase up to Three Hundred Thousand Dollars ($300,000) of Borrowers equity securities in Borrowers next private equity round on the same terms and conditions as the lead investor in such private equity round. Borrower shall give Lender thirty (30) days notice of such round.
(g) Pledged Account. Borrower shall maintain at least Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000) in the Pledged Account at all times until Lender releases its security interest in the Pledged Account in accordance with Section 5.06, and until such time Borrower: (1) shall not use the Pledged Account as a checking account or otherwise, and (2) covenants that Silicon Valley Bank shall have no applicable right of setoff or other Lien except as set forth in Section 6 of the Account Control Agreement; provided, however, Borrower may withdraw interest accrued on the cash in the Pledged Account or have such interest automatically deposited into another account of Borrower so long as $500,000 is maintained in the Pledged Account pursuant to this Section and Section 5.06. In furtherance of Section 6.01(g)(2) herein, Borrower may request in writing on a quarterly basis that Lender deliver to Borrower an instruction letter that Borrower will deliver to Silicon Valley Bank substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit E.

Borrower agrees (not as a condition but as a covenant) to deliver to Lender each item required to be delivered to Lender as a condition to each Loan, if such Loan is advanced. Borrower expressly agrees that the extension of such Loan prior to the receipt by Lender of any such item shall not constitute a waiver by Lender of Borrowers obligation to deliver such item.
9.01 Events of Default. An Event of Default shall mean the occurrence of one or more of the following described events:
(a) Borrower shall (i) default in the payment of principal of, or interest on, or fail to make the Final Payment on any Loan within three (3) Business Days of when the same is due, or (ii) default in the payment of any expense or other amount payable hereunder or thereunder for five (5) Business Days after receipt of written notice from Lender that the same is due; or

The rights and remedies hereunder of Lender are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies which it would otherwise have. Any waiver, permit, consent or approval of any kind or character on the part of Lender of any breach or default under this Agreement or any such waiver of any provision or condition of this Agreement must be in writing and shall be effective only in the specified instance and to the extent specifically set forth in such writing.

(referred herein as Atheros or the Company) contained in the Equipment Loan and Security Agreement by and among Atheros and GATX Ventures, Inc. (the Lender) (the Loan Agreement) and should be considered an integral part of the Loan Agreement. The section numbers in this Disclosure Schedule correspond to the section numbers in the Loan Agreement; provided, however, that any information disclosed in this Loan Agreement under any section number or in any schedule provided by Atheros shall be deemed disclosed and incorporated into any other sections or schedule under the Loan Agreement where such disclosure would be appropriate, whether or not repeated under any section number where such disclosure might be deemed appropriate so long as it is clear from the express language of the disclosure that such disclosure is appropriate under such section where such disclosure has not been repeated. Any terms defined in the Loan Agreement shall have the same meaning when used in this Disclosure Schedule as when used in the Loan Agreement, unless the context otherwise requires. Notwithstanding any materiality qualifications in any of Atheros representations or warranties in the Loan Agreement, for administrative ease, certain items have been included herein which are not considered by Atheros to be material to the business, assets, results of operations, prospects or affairs of Atheros. The inclusion of any item hereunder shall not be deemed to be an admission by Atheros that such item is material to the business, assets, results of operations, prospects or affairs of Atheros, nor shall it be deemed an admission of an obligation or liability to any third party.
The Company does not currently have authorized shares of Series D Preferred Stock to allow the exercise of the Warrant into shares of the Companys Series D Preferred Stock in accordance with the terms of the Warrant.
In September 2000, Wi-LAN Inc. (Wi-LAN) approached the Company with respect to Wi-LANs United States Patent No. 5,282,222 and Canadian Patent No. 2,064,975. Wi-LAN alleges any user or manufacturer of wideband OFDM products, particularly those in compliance with the IEEE 802.11(a) standard should take these patents into account. The Company researched the issues related to Wi-LANs offer, including the validity and breadth of the above-mentioned patents claims, and has determined no license is needed to commercialize the Atheros products or to implement the IEEE802.11(a) standard. In sum, the Company strongly believes that there is no merit to Wi-LANs allegations and no need to license the above-mentioned patents.
