Bank Loan and Security Agreement dated February 20, 1997, as amended
(collectively, the 'Original Agreement').

         B.       Borrower and Bank desire in this Exim Agreement to set forth
their agreement with respect to a working capital loan and to amend and restate
in its entirety without novation the Original Exim Agreement in accordance with
the provisions herein.

                                   AGREEMENT

         The parties agree as follows:

1        ACCOUNTING AND OTHER TERMS

         Accounting terms not defined in this Exim Agreement will be construed
following GAAP Calculations and determinations must be made following GAAP. The
term 'financial statements' includes the notes and schedules. The terms
'including' and 'includes' always mean 'including (or includes) without
limitation' in this or any Loan Document. This Exim Agreement shall be construed
to impart upon Bank a duty to act reasonably at all times.

2        LOAN AND TERMS OF PAYMENT

2.1      ADVANCES.

         Borrower will pay Bank the unpaid principal amount of all Advances and
interest on the unpaid principal amount of the Advances.

2.1.1    REVOLVING ADVANCES.

         Bank will make Advances not exceeding (i) the Exim Committed Line or
(ii) the Borrowing Base, whichever is less minus (ii) the amount of all
outstanding Letters of Credit (including drawn but unreimbursed Letters of
Credit and minus (iii) the Foreign Exchange Reserve. Amounts borrowed under this
Section may be repaid and reborrowed during the term of this Exim Agreement.

         (a) To obtain an Advance, Borrower must notify Bank by facsimile or
telephone by 3:00 p.m. Pacific time on the Business Day the Advance is to be
made. Borrower must promptly confirm the notification by delivering to Bank the
Payment/Advance Form attached as Exhibit B. Bank will credit Advances to
Borrower's deposit account. Bank may make Credit Extensions under this Exim
Agreement based on instructions from a Responsible Officer or his or her
designee or without instructions if the Credit Extensions are necessary to meet
Obligations which have become due. Bank may rely on any telephone notice given
by a person whom Bank believes is a Responsible Officer or designee. Borrower
will indemnify Bank for any loss suffered by Bank from that reliance.

         (b) The Exim Committed Line terminates on the Exim Maturity Date, when
all Advances and other amounts due under this Exim Agreement are immediately
payable.

2.1.2    LETTERS OF CREDIT.

         Bank will issue or have issued Letters of Credit for Borrower's
account, to serve as bid bonds when the Borrower has no export order, provided
that the Borrower submits to Bank a copy of request for proposal or other form
of invitation to bid, in form and substance acceptable to Bank. Letters of
Credit 

                                    4


shall not exceed (i) the lesser of the Exim Committed Line or the Borrowing 
Base minus (ii) the outstanding principal balance of the Advances, but the 
face amount of outstanding Letters of Credit (including drawn but 
unreimbursed Letters of Credit and any Letter of Credit Reserve) may not 
exceed $2,000,000. Each Letter of Credit will expire no later than 180 days 
after the Revolving Maturity Date provided Borrower's Letter of Credit 
reimbursement obligation is secured by cash on terms acceptable to Bank at 
any time after the Exim Maturity Date if the term of this Agreement is not 
extended by Bank.

2.1.3    FOREIGN EXCHANGE SUBLIMIT.

         If there is availability under the Committed Revolving Line and the
Borrowing Base, then Borrower may enter in foreign exchange forward contracts
with the Bank under which Borrower commits to purchase from or sell to Bank a
set amount of foreign currency more than one business day after the contract
date (the 'FX Forward Contract'). Bank will subtract 10% of each outstanding FX
Forward Contract from the foreign exchange sublimit which is a maximum of
$1,000,000 (the 'FX Sublimit'). The total FX Forward Contracts at any one time
may not exceed 10 times the amount of the FX Sublimit. Bank may terminate the FX
Forward Contracts if an Event of Default occurs.

2.2      OVERADVANCES.

         If Borrower's Obligations under Section 2.1.1 exceed the lesser of
either (i) the Exim Committed Line or (ii) the Borrowing Base, Borrower must
immediately pay Bank the excess.

2.3      INTEREST RATE, PAYMENTS.

         (a) Interest Rate. Advances accrue interest on the outstanding
principal balance at a per annum rate equal to the Prime Rate. After an Event of
Default, Obligations accrue interest at 5 percent above the rate effective
immediately before the Event of Default. The interest rate increases or
decreases when the Prime Rate changes. Interest is computed on a 360 day year
for the actual number of days elapsed.

         (b) Payments. Interest due on the Exim Committed Line is payable on the
20th of each month. Bank may debit any of Borrower's deposit accounts including
Account Number __________________________ for principal and interest payments or
any amounts Borrower owes Bank. Bank will notify Borrower when it debits
Borrower's accounts. These debits are not a set-off. Payments received after
12:00 noon Pacific time are considered received at the opening of business on
the next Business Day. When a payment is due on a day that is not a Business
Day, the payment is due the next Business Day and additional fees or interest
accrue.

2.4      FEES.

         Borrower will pay:

         (a) Bank Expenses. All Bank Expenses incurred through and after the
date of this Exim Agreement, (including reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses)

         (b) Exim Fee. A fully earned, non-refundable facility Fee of $37,500 
will be due on the Closing Date.

         (c) Exim Bank Expenses. On the Closing Date, Exim Bank Expenses
incurred through the date hereof.

2.5      USE OF PROCEEDS.

         Borrower will use the proceeds of the Advances only for the purposes
specified in the Borrower Agreement. Borrower will not use the proceeds of the
Advances for any purpose prohibited by the Borrower Agreement.

9        BANK'S RIGHTS AND REMEDIES

9.1      RIGHTS AND REMEDIES.

         When an Event of Default occurs and continues Bank may, without notice
or demand, do any or all of the following:

         (a) Declare all Obligations immediately due and payable (but if an
Event of Default described in Section 8 occurs all Obligations are immediately
due and payable without any action by Bank);

         (b) Stop advancing money or extending credit for Borrower's benefit
under this Exim Agreement or under any other agreement between Borrower and
Bank;

         (c) Settle or adjust disputes and claims directly with account debtors
for amounts, on terms and in any order that Bank considers advisable;

         (d) Make any payments and do any acts it considers necessary or
reasonable to protect its security interest in the Collateral. Borrower will
assemble the Collateral if Bank requires and make it available as Bank
designates. Bank may enter premises where the Collateral is located, take and
maintain possession of any part of the Collateral, and pay, purchase, contest,
or compromise any Lien which appears to be prior or superior to its security
interest and pay all expenses incurred. Borrower grants Bank a license to enter
and occupy any of its premises, without charge, to exercise any of Bank's rights
or remedies;

         (e) Apply to the Obligations any (i) balances and deposits of Borrower
it holds, or (ii) any amount held by Bank owing to or for the credit or the
account of Borrower;

         (f) Ship, reclaim, recover, store, finish, maintain, repair, prepare
for sale, advertise for sale, and sell the Collateral; and

         (g) Dispose of the Collateral according to the Code.

9.2      POWER OF ATTORNEY.

         Effective only when an Event of Default occurs and continues, Borrower
irrevocably appoints Bank as its lawful attorney to: (i) endorse Borrower's name
on any checks or other forms of payment or security; (ii) sign Borrower's name
on any invoice or bill of lading for any Account or drafts against account
debtors, (iii) make, settle, and adjust all claims under Borrower's insurance
policies; (iv) settle and adjust disputes and claims about the Accounts directly
with account debtors, for amounts and on 

                                    8


terms Bank determines reasonable; and (v) transfer the Collateral into the 
name of Bank or a third party as the Code permits. Bank may exercise the 
power of attorney to sign Borrower's name on any documents necessary to 
perfect or continue the perfection of any security interest regardless of 
whether an Event of Default has occurred. Bank's appointment as Borrower's 
attorney in fact, and all of Bank's rights and powers, coupled with an 
interest, are irrevocable until all Obligations have been fully repaid and 
performed and Bank's obligation to provide Advances terminates.

9.3      ACCOUNTS COLLECTION.

         When an Event of Default occurs and continues, Bank may notify any
Person owing Borrower money of Bank's security interest in the funds and verify
the amount of the Account. Borrower must collect all payments in trust for Bank
and, if requested by Bank, immediately deliver the payments to Bank in the form
received from the account debtor, with proper endorsements for deposit.

9.4      BANK EXPENSES.

         If Borrower fails to pay any amount or furnish any required proof of
payment to third persons Bank may make all or part of the payment or obtain
insurance policies required in Section 6.5, and take any action under the
policies Bank deems prudent. Any amounts paid by Bank are Bank Expenses and
immediately due and payable, bearing interest at the then applicable rate and
secured by the Collateral. No payments by Bank are deemed an agreement to make
similar payments in the future or Bank's waiver of any Event of Default.

9.5      BANK'S LIABILITY FOR COLLATERAL.

         If Bank complies with reasonable banking practices it is not liable
for: (a) the safekeeping of the Collateral; (b) any loss or damage to the
Collateral; (c) any diminution in the value of the Collateral; or (d) any act or
default of any carrier, warehouseman, bailee, or other person. Borrower bears
all risk of loss, damage or destruction of the Collateral.

9.6      REMEDIES CUMULATIVE.

         Bank's rights and remedies under this Exim Agreement, the Loan
Documents, and all other agreements are cumulative. Bank has all rights and
remedies provided under the Code, by law, or in equity. Bank's exercise of one
right or remedy is not an election, and Bank's waiver of any Event of Default is
not a continuing waiver. Bank's delay is not a waiver, election, or
acquiescence. No waiver is effective unless signed by Bank and then is only
effective for the specific instance and purpose for which it was given.

9.7      DEMAND WAIVER.

         Borrower waives demand, notice of default or dishonor, notice of
payment and nonpayment, notice of any default, nonpayment at maturity, release,
compromise, settlement, extension, or renewal of accounts, documents,
instruments, chattel paper, and guarantees held by Bank on which Borrower is
liable.

9.8      EXIM DIRECTION.

         Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Exim Bank shall have right
to (i) direct Bank to exercise the remedies specified in Section 9.1 and (ii)
request that Bank accelerate the maturity of any other loans to Borrower.


9.9      EXIM NOTIFICATION.

         Bank has the right to immediately notify Exim Bank in writing if it has
knowledge of any of the following events: (1) any failure to pay any amount due
under this Exim Agreement; (2) the Borrowing 

                                    9


Base is less than the sum of the outstanding Credit Extensions; (3) any 
failure to pay when due any amount payable to Bank under any Loan owing by 
Borrower to Bank; (4) the filing of an action for debtor's relief by, against 
or on behalf of Borrower; (5) any threatened or pending material litigation 
against Borrower, or any dispute involving Borrower.

         If Bank sends a notice to Exim Bank, Bank has the right to send Exim
Bank a written report on the status of events covered by the notice every 30
days after the date of the original notification, until Bank files a claim with
Exim Bank or the defaults have been cured (but no Credit Extensions may be
required during the cure period unless Exim Bank gives its written approval). If
directed by Exim Bank, Bank will have the right to exercise any rights it may
have against the Borrower to demand the immediate repayment of all amounts
outstanding under the Exim Loan Documents.

10       NOTICES

         All notices or demands by any party about this Exim Agreement or any
other related agreement must be in writing and be personally delivered or sent
by an overnight delivery service, by certified mail, postage prepaid, return
receipt requested, or by telefacsimile to the addresses first written above. A
Party may change its notice address by giving the other Party written notice.

11       CHOICE OF LAW, VENUE AND JURY TRIAL WAIVER

         California law governs the Loan Documents without regard to principles
of conflicts of law. Borrower and Bank each submit to the exclusive jurisdiction
of the State and Federal courts in Santa Clara County, California.

BORROWER AND BANK EACH WAIVE THEIR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OF ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE
OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF ANY OF THE LOAN DOCUMENTS OR ANY CONTEMPLATED
TRANSACTION, INCLUDING CONTRACT, TORT, BREACH OF DUTY AND ALL OTHER CLAIMS. THIS
WAIVER IS A MATERIAL INDUCEMENT FOR BOTH PARTIES TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT.
EACH PARTY HAS REVIEWED THIS WAIVER WITH ITS COUNSEL.

12       GENERAL PROVISIONS

12.1     SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS.

         This Exim Agreement binds and is for the benefit of the successors and
permitted assigns of each party. Borrower may not assign this Exim Agreement or
any rights under it without Bank's prior written consent which may be granted or
withheld in Bank's discretion. Bank has the right, without the consent of or
notice to Borrower, to sell, transfer, negotiate, or grant participation in all
or any part of, or any interest in, Bank's obligations, rights and benefits
under this Exim Agreement.

12.2     INDEMNIFICATION.

         Borrower will indemnify, defend and hold harmless Bank and its
officers, employees, and agents against: (a) all obligations, demands, claims,
