     3.   Covenants and Warranties. Grantor represents, warrants, covenants and
agrees as follows:

          (a)  Grantor is now the sole owner of the Collateral, except for
non-exclusive licenses granted by Grantor to its customers in the ordinary

          (b)  Performance of this Agreement does not conflict with or result in

otherwise encumber any interest in the Collateral, except for non-exclusive
licenses granted by Grantor in the ordinary course of business or as set forth
in this Agreement;

          (d)  To its knowledge, each of the Patents is valid and enforceable,
and no part of the Collateral has been judged invalid or unenforceable, in whole
or in part, and no claim has been made that any part of the Collateral violates
the rights of any third party;

          (e)  Grantor shall deliver to Secured Party within (30) days of the
last day of each fiscal quarter, a report signed by Grantor, in form reasonably
acceptable to Secured Party, listing any applications or registrations that
Grantor has made or filed in respect of any patents, copyrights or trademarks
and the status of any outstanding applications or registrations. Grantor shall
promptly advise Secured Party of any material change in the composition of the

acquired by Grantor from time to time in connection with any product prior to
the sale or licensing of such product to any third party (including without
limitation revisions or additions to the intellectual property rights listed on
such Exhibits A, B and C). Grantor shall, from time to time, execute and file
such other instruments, and take such further actions as Secured Party may
reasonably request from time to time to perfect or continue the perfection of
Secured Party's interest in the Collateral;

          (h)  Grantor has not granted a security interest in the Collateral in
favor of any other Person;

accurate and complete in all material respects;

          (k)  Grantor shall not enter into any agreement that would
materially impair or conflict with Grantor's obligations hereunder without
Secured Party's prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably
withheld. Grantor shall not permit the inclusion in any material contract to
which it becomes a party of any provisions that could or might in any way
prevent the creation of a security interest in Grantor's rights and interests
in any property included within the definition of the Collateral acquired under
such contracts; and

          (l)  Upon any executive officer of Grantor obtaining actual knowledge
thereof, Grantor will promptly notify Secured Party in writing of any event
that materially adversely affects the value of any Collateral, the ability of
Grantor to dispose of any Collateral or the rights and remedies of Secured
Party in relation thereto, including the levy of any legal process against any
of the Collateral.

     4.   Secured Party's Rights.  Secured Party shall have the right, but not
the obligation, to take, at Grantor's sole expense, any actions that Grantor is
required under this Agreement to take but which Grantor fails to take, after

Secured Party for all reasonable costs and reasonable expenses incurred in the
reasonable exercise of its rights under this section 4.

     5.   Further Assurances: Attorney in Fact.

          (a)  On a continuing basis, Grantor will make, execute, acknowledge
and deliver, and file and record in the proper filing and recording places in
the United States, all such instruments, including appropriate financing and
continuation statements and collateral agreements and filings with the United
States Patent and Trademark Office and the Register of Copyrights, and take all
such action as may reasonably be deemed necessary or advisable, or as requested
by secured Party, to perfect Secured Party's security interest in all
Copyrights, Patents and Trademarks and otherwise to carry out the intent and
purposes of this Agreement, or for assuring and confirming to Secured Party the
grant or perfection of a security interest in all Collateral.

          (b)  Grantor hereby irrevocably appoints Secured Party as Grantor's
attorney-in-fact, with full authority in the place and stead of Grantor and in
the name of Grantor, from time to time in Secured Party's discretion, to take
any action and to execute any instrument which Secured Party may deem necessary
or advisable to accomplish the purposes of this Agreement, including (i) to
modify, in its sole discretion, this Agreement without first obtaining
Grantor's approval of or signature to such modification by amending Exhibit A,
Exhibit B and Exhibit C, thereof, as appropriate, to include reference to any
right, title or interest in any Copyrights, Patents or Trademarks acquired by
Grantor after the execution hereof or to delete any reference to any right,
title or interest in any Copyrights, Patents or Trademarks in which Grantor no
longer has or claims any right, title or interest, (ii) to file, in its sole
discretion, one or more financing or continuation statements and amendments
thereto, relative to any of the Collateral without the signature of Grantor
where permitted by law and (iii) after the occurrence of an Event of Default, to
transfer the Collateral into the name of Bank or a third party to the extent
permitted under the California Uniform Commercial Code.

     6.   Events of Default.  The occurrence of any of the following shall
constitute an Event of Default under the Agreement:

          (a)  An Event of Default occurs under the Credit Agreement; or

          (b)  Grantor breaches any warranty or agreement made by Grantor in
this Agreement and, as to any breach that is capable of cure, Grantor fails to
cure such breach within five (5) days of the occurrence of such breach.

     7.   Remedies.  Upon the occurrence and continuance of an Event of
Default, Secured Party shall have the right to exercise all the remedies of a
secured party under the California Uniform Commercial Code, including

<PAGE>   4
without limitation the right to require Grantor to assemble the Collateral and
any tangible property in which Secured Party has a security interest and to
make it available to Secured Party at a place designated by Secured Party.
Secured Party shall have a nonexclusive, royalty free license to use the
Copyrights, Patents and Trademarks to the extent reasonably necessary to permit
Secured Party to exercise its rights and remedies upon the occurrence of an
Event of Default. Grantor will pay any expenses (including reasonable
attorneys' fees) incurred by Secured Party in connection with the exercise of
any Secured Party's rights hereunder, including without limitation any expense
incurred in disposing of the Collateral. All of Secured Party's rights and
remedies with respect to the Collateral shall be cumulative.

     8.   Indemnity. Grantor agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless
Secured Party and its officers, employees, and agents against: (a) all
obligations, demands, claims, and liabilities claimed or asserted by any other
party in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and
(b) all losses or expenses in any way suffered, incurred, or paid by Secured
Party as a result of or in any way arising out of, following or consequential
to transactions between Secured Party and Grantor, under this Agreement
(including without limitation reasonable attorneys' fees and reasonable
expenses), except for losses arising from or out of Secured Party's gross
negligence or willful misconduct.

     9.   Course of Dealing.  No course of dealing, nor any failure to
exercise, nor any delay in exercising any right, power or privilege hereunder
shall operate as a waiver thereof.

     10.  Attorneys' Fees.  If any action relating to this Agreement is brought
by either party hereto against the other party, the prevailing party shall be
entitled to recover reasonable attorneys' fees, costs and disbursements.

     11.  Amendments.  This Agreement may be amended only by a written
instrument signed by both parties hereto.

     12.  Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in two or more
counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original but all of which
together shall constitute the same instrument.

     13.  California Law and Jurisdiction; Jury Waiver. This Agreement shall be
governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard for choice of
law provisions. Grantor and Secured Party consent to the exclusive jurisdiction
of any state or federal court located in Santa Clara County, California.

     IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have executed this Agreement on the
day and year first above written.
