The parties shall work diligently to complete such an agreement within ninety days of the signing of this LOA. This Agreement shall continue to apply until the execution of the formal manufacturing agreement. Either party can terminate the relationship for convenience at any time prior to the execution of the definitive agreement. Both parties have spent considerable effort to put in place the relationship desired, and have visited many of the terms that will be part of the eventual manufacturing agreement. It is envisioned that the spirit of the work on these issues will become part of the agreement. Any material or pricing reconciliations will take place quarterly. PRODUCTION EFFORT AND TEST OF For the purposes of this agreement, THE PRODUCTS manufacturing services refer to prototype manufacturing, test development and implementation, new products introduction, process engineering, materials procurement and management, printed circuit assembly and test, systems assembly and test, order management and fulfillment, quality and Customer satisfaction management, and post manufacturing services, plus any other services as mutually agreed by both parties. -1- <PAGE> TERMS PROVISIONS BUSINESS MANAGEMENT PROCEDURES The parties hereby agree to adopt "Business Management Procedures", in support of CUSTOMER, even if such corporate-wide decisions may be perceived by individual SUPPLIER site(s) to be sub-optimal, including: SUPPLIER will name Program Manager, senior materials resource, and senior engineering resource that will be dedicated to CUSTOMER'S business. Named resources to be full time, regular SUPPLIER employees, and not part time, and not contract employees. Changes in named individual will be communicated with a minimum of 30 days notice, and SUPPLIER commits to managing an adequate overlap period to ensure an orderly changeover, provided the reason for the changeover is not the resignation of the named individual from SUPPLIER'S employment.

TRANSITION SUPPLIER and CUSTOMER both agree to transition products and services from CUSTOMER'S Current Manufacturing Services Provider with appropriate priority, resources, and effort so as to minimize impact on CUSTOMER'S revenue stream, or on CUSTOMER'S Customer satisfaction. Current Manufacturing Services Provider means CUSTOMER'S Manufacturing Services Provider prior to the time this agreement is signed. SUPPLIER agrees that all SUPPLIER'S labor, both direct and indirect, necessary to successfully transition these products and services will be provided at SUPPLIER'S expense. Examples include labor necessary to create process packages, design floor layouts, implement production -2- <PAGE> TERMS PROVISIONS lines, and establish a materials pipeline. Exceptions will be agreed to by both parties, in writing, and treated as NRE. SUPPLIER and CUSTOMER agree that New Products Introductions agreements regarding Generic and Unique Equipment will apply to all other aspects of the Transition from CUSTOMER'S Current Manufacturing Services Provider. NEW PRODUCT INTRODUCTIONS SUPPLIER and CUSTOMER both agree to introduce new CUSTOMER products with appropriate priority, resources, and effort so as to minimize impact on CUSTOMER'S new product introduction program objectives. It is further recognized that important CUSTOMER new product introductions will be underway in parallel with the Transition from CUSTOMER'S Current Manufacturing Services Provider, and that the level of activity may require additional resources beyond what is normally allocated for NPI activities alone. CUSTOMER agrees that all SUPPLIER'S labor, both Direct (DL) and Indirect (IL), necessary to successfully introduce new CUSTOMER products and services will be provided at CUSTOMER'S expense. This labor includes that necessary to create process packages, develop and debug test programs, design floor layouts, implement production lines, procure prototype materials, build prototypes, implement Engineering Change Orders (ECOs), and whatever else is necessary. The charges for these Non-Recurring Engineering (NRE) activities will be calculated as total IL hours times agreed upon IL rate/hour, plus total DL hours times agreed upon DL rate/hour, unless both parties agree in advance on a total charge for the complete program. SUPPLIER agrees that each new product design, component selection, and Supplier selection will be assessed for producibility and for cost, and that recommendations will be made for producibility improvement, and for cost reductions. These recommendations will be made as early in the program as possible, so as maximize the opportunity to implement them in the CUSTOMER'S program. CUSTOMER agrees that all such Design For Manufacturability (DIM) efforts will be provided at CUSTOMER expense, at agreed upon NRE hourly rates, provided such feedback is provided in an organized manner and on a timely basis. SUPPLIER agrees that all Equipment that is Generic to the Manufacturing Services being provided to CUSTOMER will be provided at SUPPLIER expense. Examples of generic equipment are: screen printer, automatic placement equipment, flying probe, 5DX X-ray, ICT equipment, roller lines, packaging equipment, as well as -3- <PAGE> TERMS PROVISIONS business systems to support SUPPLIER'S standard Manufacturing Services offerings.

QUALITY SUPPLIER agrees that product price includes benefit from ongoing quality management process, which includes: process measurement and controls, training, appropriate inspections and audits, closed-loop corrective action process, management reviews, and all other activities necessary to understand and manage ongoing product quality. SUPPLIER certifies that all sites involved in the production and delivery of CUSTOMER'S product are certified to ISO9000/2000. SUPPLIER agrees that any incremental actions taken by CUSTOMER, that are required to ensure acceptable outgoing quality will be done at the expense of SUPPLIER, and will be billed at agreed upon NRE rates, unless those actions are required due to CUSTOMER'S design, component selection, or Supplier selection. CUSTOMER agrees that any incremental actions necessary to maintain minimum acceptable levels of outgoing quality will be taken at CUSTOMER'S expense, and will be billed at agreed upon NRE rates, provided those actions are required due to CUSTOMER'S design, component selection, or Supplier selection. PRICES FOR PRODUCTS The agreed price for each Product is set forth in Exhibit A to this agreement. SUPPLIER and CUSTOMER agree to work together to achieve a [**]% price reduction per year on all products combined. Prices will be reviewed quarterly, and reductions will be measured quarterly from same quarter prior year. SUPPLIER and CUSTOMER agree that benefits from cost reduction of component materials that are achieved primarily through the efforts of SUPPLIER will be [**]% by SUPPLIER for a period of three months, and [**] between SUPPLIER and CUSTOMER for an additional period of three months, [**]% to CUSTOMER thereafter, provided CUSTOMER is realizing a cumulative [**]% annual -4- <PAGE> TERMS PROVISIONS material cost reduction across all products. In the event CUSTOMER is not realizing the [**]% annual material cost reduction across all products, benefits from cost reduction of component materials will be divided between SUPPLIER and CUSTOMER in a way that will maximize its contribution to achieving that goal. This agreement shall be called the Purchase Price Variance (PPV) sharing agreement. SUPPLIER agrees that all material cost reduction benefits will be disclosed to CUSTOMER at or before the time the benefit will impact SUPPLIER. PLANNING ASSUMPTIONS, CUSTOMER agrees that all demand will be placed PURCHASING AND COMMODITY on SUPPLIER in the form of Purchase Orders. MANAGEMENT SERVICES CUSTOMER will endeavor to provide purchase order coverage for a minimum of 90 days to a maximum of 180 days of requirements. SUPPLIER and CUSTOMER agree that it is their objective to reach agreement that minimizes the material content that is controlled and/or sourced by CUSTOMER. Such agreement will depend upon terms that support the business objectives of both parties. SUPPLIER agrees to procure all component materials to fulfill CUSTOMER'S purchase orders, with the exception of components that are managed and sourced directly by CUSTOMER, which are subsequently consigned to SUPPLIER by CUSTOMER. Cost for execution of this responsibility is included in agreed upon price for each product. All CUSTOMER owned materials that are consigned to SUPPLIER to be kept in a separate, secured inventory location. Records will be maintained for these materials, and CUSTOMER shall have access to the records and materials for audit purposes. The price of products listed on the Purchase Order shall be firm, and not subject to change based on varying costs or expenses of SUPPLIER. SUPPLIER shall be responsible for any incremental costs arising from changes in component prices from the date of the original purchase order, even if such changes occur prior to the date on which, according to the commodity leadtime approved by CUSTOMER (as specified below), SUPPLIER is first anticipated to acquire such materials; similarly, SUPPLIER shall receive the benefit of any incremental price reduction during that (or subsequent periods), according to the PPV Sharing Agreement (above); except as specified below where CUSTOMER does not place the order within the specified leadtime, or where SUPPLIER and CUSTOMER agree to -5- <PAGE> TERMS PROVISIONS the contrary in specific instances. Exceptions would be made for components that have gone on global allocation by commodity, provided SUPPLIER can show evidence that diligence has been applied to mitigate the effects of the allocation situation. SUPPLIER also agrees to provide to CUSTOMER prior to or in connection with the Purchase Orders a listing of all materials that are deemed to be Non-Cancelable, Non-Returnable (NCNR). Notwithstanding such classification, however, the provisions below regarding rescheduling shall continue apply to such materials. SUPPLIER agrees to accept changes in purchase order quantities for the third period of every calendar quarter, provided such changes are communicated before 59 days prior to the start of that period. CUSTOMER agrees that those changes will be limited to the range of [**]%/[**]% of total demand for each product for that period, and/or reschedule of demand for each product for that period into the next quarter. Both parties agree, in the event of a reduction and/or reschedule of third period demand, to endeavor to level load the remaining demand for that quarter across the full three periods. SUPPLIER agrees that CUSTOMER will incur no incremental charge as a result of exercising this flexibility agreement. In the event CUSTOMER finds it necessary to cancel or reduce the quantities in certain purchase orders (in amounts beyond the flexibility set forth above to cancel or restructure orders), CUSTOMER will be responsible for SUPPLIER's out of pocket cost for materials, but SUPPLIER shall use its best efforts, including the full effect of SUPPLIER's global material's leverage, to mitigate such cost. CUSTOMER shall have no liability for labor costs or overhead which are avoided by the failure to manufacture the materials specified in the cancelled or reduced purchase orders. CUSTOMER agrees that expected requirements beyond the coverage of purchase orders will be communicated in the form of non-binding forecasts, and that through a combination of purchase orders and forecast, will endeavor to provide a full twelve months visibility to expected demand. CUSTOMER agrees that any requirements for materials with leadtime greater than the period for which purchase order coverage is provided will be supported on an exception basis with a separate purchase order. SUPPLIER agrees to provide CUSTOMER with timely notification of such situations. -6- <PAGE> TERMS PROVISIONS SUPPLIER agrees to provide CUSTOMER with a Standard Leadtime Chart, with which SUPPLIER commit to leadtime by commodity, as well as SUPPLIER leadtime commit by component for any component with a leadtime that exceeds its Standard commodity leadtime. It is the responsibility of SUPPLIER to keep the Standard Leadtime Chart current with revisions as required. This information will be used for planning purposes and as the basis for determination of premium responsibilities. Customer acknowledges that lead times of component varies, and supplier will use reasonable commercial efforts to keep updated though it can happen that lead times change with no notice to supplier. CUSTOMER agrees that incremental costs arising from premiums required to procure certain components within leadtime as defined by Standard Leadtime Chart will be the responsibility of CUSTOMER, provided that timing of CUSTOMER'S purchase order did not allow SUPPLIER enough time to procure those parts at those leadtimes, and provided SUPPLIER informs CUSTOMER on a timely basis of the need for premium, the cause, and he estimated cost, and secures CUSTOMER approval prior to incurring that cost. SUPPLIER agrees that premiums in all other cases are at SUPPLIER expense. SUPPLIER agrees to develop and propose to CUSTOMER a sourcing strategy that would allow SUPPLIER to provide [**]% upside for materials availability within six weeks notice, such notice to be communicated in the form of change orders to existing purchase orders. Both parties agree to complete such a plan before the formal manufacturing agreement is signed. CUSTOMER will consider providing SUPPLIER with a separate purchase order to cover materials for which a minimum order quantity would result in cost savings or avoidance, compared to limiting the procurement to quantities supported by CUSTOMER'S existing purchase orders. SUPPLIER agrees to provide information on a timely basis for consideration and action prior to leadtime for those components. SUPPLIER further agrees to minimize these situations by taking their total demand across their Customer portfolio into account to endeavor to realize the minimum order quantity. CUSTOMER agrees to be responsible for all materials procured by SUPPLIER in support of CUSTOMER'S purchase orders, provided such materials were not ordered by SUPPLIER earlier than leadtime as defined in Standard Leadtime Charge and provided SUPPLIER can provide evidence of using best efforts, including the full effect of SUPPLIER'S global materials leverage to mitigate. CUSTOMER -7- <PAGE> TERMS PROVISIONS agrees to be responsible for finished goods and work in process, provided those assemblies are produced in support of CUSTOMER purchase orders.

ORDER FULFILLMENT SUPPLIER agrees to build and test certain of CUSTOMER'S products to a semi-finished goods state, and perform final configuration and test of those products when CUSTOMER transmits their Sales Order for those products to SUPPLIER. CUSTOMER shall initiate product shipment by transmitting CUSTOMER Sales Orders to SUPPLIER. Sales Orders to include final quantities, configuration, Customer name, ship to address, and required shipment date. Sales Orders to be transmitted through agreed EDI processes. SUPPLIER shall ship product on required ship date specified on CUSTOMER Sales Order, provided CUSTOMER Purchase Order supports the required quantities and configurations, and at least one week notice is given to SUPPLIER to allow for final configuration and test of product. CUSTOMER purchases product at time of shipment from SUPPLIER. SUPPLIER agrees to extend to CUSTOMER a line of credit for the purposes of financing inventory, including component parts, both on hand and, in the case of NCNR materials, on order, and work in process, and finished goods, as well as financing accounts receivable from CUSTOMER. Amount of Line of Credit to be determined based on CUSTOMER cash position, burn rate, revenue stream, payments history, and CUSTOMER business plan going forward, and other criteria, such criteria to be disclosed by SUPPLIER to CUSTOMER prior to its being incorporated into any calculation. SUPPLIER agrees to communicate details of method of determination of actual credit limit, based on these inputs, upon signing this agreement, these details to include frequency and timing of credit analysis. SUPPLIER agrees to provide CUSTOMER with a minimum of thirty (30) days notice of any proposed reduction in the line of credit.
