   Page 6 of 14 CONFIDENTIAL

test equipment, or which has been subjected to abuse (including without limitation electrostatic discharge), or improper (i) handling, (ii) installation, (iii) maintenance, (iv) removal, (v) modification or (vi) use. SKYWORKS’ warranty shall not be enlarged, and no obligation or liability shall arise out of SKYWORKS’ rendering of technical advice, facilities or service in connection with SiRF’s order or the Products furnished.

Section 12. Indemnification.

SIRF will defend, indemnify and settle any proceeding brought against the SKYWORKS based on any claim, proceeding or action (“Claim”) that the Products, GPS Applications and/or Deliverables, including any modifications or improvements thereto, infringe any third party Intellectual Property Rights, provided SIRF is notified promptly in writing, not more than sixty (60) days after SKYWORKS receives notice of the proceeding, and given full authority, information and assistance (at SIRF’s expense) for the defense of such Claim. If Skyworks fails to provide notice within the 60 day period, and SiRF is prejudiced by such failure to notify, then Skyworks shall bear the additional cost actually incurred by SiRF due to the delay. SIRF will pay all damages and costs incurred by SKYWORKS in association with such Claim as the damages and costs become obligations to Skyworks, including reasonable attorney fees incurred as a result of such Claim. If the Product, GPS Applications and/or Deliverables are deemed or believed to infringe and its use is enjoined, SIRF will at its option and expense, either arrange for SKYWORKS the right to continue using and manufacturing the Product, GPS Applications and/or Deliverables, or SIRF shall replace or modify the Product, GPS Applications and/or Deliverables so as to make the Product, GPS Applications and/or Deliverables commercially substantially equal but non-infringing. Notwithstanding the foregoing, SIRF will have no obligation to indemnify SKYWORKS for any Claim arising out of any of the following circumstances: (a) unauthorized use of the Products, Deliverables, or GPS Applications in any way by SKYWORKS or any third party working on behalf of SKYWORKS, if the Claim would not have arisen but for such unauthorized use; (b) unauthorized modifications or alterations of the Products, Deliverables, or GPS Applications in any way by SKYWORKS or any third party working on behalf of SKYWORKS, if the Claim would not have occurred but for such modification or alteration; (c) unauthorized combinations of the Products, Deliverables, or GPS Applications with another component by SKYWORKS or any third party, working on behalf of SKYWORKS, if the Claim would not have occurred but for such combination; or (d) the SKYWORKS manufacturing process.

13.4 Effect of Termination. In the event of termination or expiration of this Agreement, SIRF’s payment obligations to SKYWORKS, which exist at the time of termination, shall continue, except in the event that SIRF terminates this Agreement as a result of SKYWORKS’ material breach. SKYWORKS agrees that upon termination or expiration, except termination by SKYWORKS for cause, SKYWORKS shall deliver to SIRF all Products for which SIRF has paid for.

15.1 Disputes. Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or the interpretation, breach, termination or validity hereof, shall be resolved through friendly consultation.
