ARTICLE II

STOCKHOLDERS

Section 2.1. Annual Meetings. An annual meeting of stockholders shall be held for the election of directors at such date, time and place, either within or without the State of Delaware, as may be designated by resolution of the Board of Directors from time to time. Only such business shall be conducted as shall have been properly brought before the annual meeting. To be properly brought before an annual meeting, business must be specified in the notice of meeting (or any supplement thereto) given by or at the direction of the Board of Directors, or otherwise properly brought before the meeting by or at the direction of the Board of Directors, or otherwise properly brought before the meeting by a stockholder.

Section 2.2. Special Meetings. Special meetings of stockholders for any purpose or purposes may be called at any time by the Board of Directors, the Chairman of the Board of Directors, the President, the Lead Independent Director, or one or more record holders of shares of stock of the Corporation representing in the aggregate not less than twenty percent (20%) of the total number of shares of stock outstanding and entitled to vote on the matter or matters to be brought before the proposed special meeting (the "Voting Stock"). A stockholder request for a special meeting shall be directed to the Secretary of the Corporation at the Corporation's principal executive offices and shall be signed by each stockholder, or a duly authorized agent of such stockholder, requesting the special meeting and shall be accompanied by a notice setting forth the information required by Section 2.10 or Section 2.11, as applicable, of Article II of these By-laws, as to any nominations proposed to be presented and any other business proposed to be conducted at such special meeting and as to the stockholder(s) requesting the special meeting. In addition to the information required by Section 2.10 or Section 2.11, as applicable, of Article II of these By-laws, the special meeting request shall include (i) an acknowledgement by such stockholder(s) that any disposition of shares of the Voting Stock held of record by such stockholder(s) as of the date of delivery of the special meeting request and prior to the record date for the proposed special meeting of stockholders requested by such stockholder(s) shall constitute a revocation of such request with respect to such shares, and (ii) documentary evidence that the requesting stockholder(s) own in the aggregate the requisite twenty percent (20%) or more of the Voting Stock as of the date of such written request to the Secretary; provided, however, that if the requesting stockholder(s) are not the beneficial owner(s) of the shares representing the requisite twenty percent (20%) or more of the Voting Stock as of the date of such written request to the Secretary, then to be valid, the written request must also include documentary evidence that the beneficial owner(s) on whose behalf the special meeting request is made beneficially own the requisite twenty percent (20%) or more of the Voting Stock as of the date of such written request to the Secretary. In addition, the requesting stockholder(s) and the beneficial owner(s), if any, shall promptly provide any other information reasonably requested by the Corporation.

1


A special meeting requested by stockholder(s) shall be held at such date, time and place within or without the state of Delaware as may be designated by the Board of Directors; provided, however, that the date of any such special meeting shall be not more than 90 days after the request to call the special meeting by the stockholder(s) who satisfy the requirements of this Section 2.2 is received by the Secretary, unless a later date is required in order to allow the Corporation to file the information required under Item 8 (or any comparable or successor provision) of Schedule 14A under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), if applicable.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, a special meeting requested by the stockholder(s) shall not be held if: (i) the request for the special meeting does not comply with the provisions of these By-laws, (ii) the stated business to be brought before the special meeting is not a proper subject for stockholder action under applicable law, (iii) the Board of Directors has called or calls for an annual meeting of stockholders to be held within 90 days after the Secretary receives the request for the special meeting and the Board of Directors determines in good faith that the business of such annual meeting includes (among any other matters properly brought before the annual meeting) the business specified in the stockholder(s)' request for a special meeting, (iv) an annual or special meeting of stockholders that included an identical or substantially similar item of business ("Similar Business"), as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors, was held not more than 120 days before the special meeting request was received by the Secretary, or (v) the special meeting request was made in a manner that involved a violation of Regulation 14A under the Exchange Act or other applicable law. For purposes of this Section 2.2, the election of directors shall be deemed to be Similar Business with respect to all items of business involving the election or removal of directors, changing the size of the Board of Directors and filing of vacancies and/or newly created directorships resulting from any increase in the authorized number of directors.

In determining whether a special meeting of stockholders has been requested by the record holders of shares representing in the aggregate not less than twenty percent (20%) of the Voting Stock as of the date of such written request to the Secretary, multiple special meeting requests delivered to the Secretary will be considered together only if (i) each request identifies substantially the same purpose or purposes of the proposed special meeting and substantially the same matters proposed to be acted on at the proposed special meeting (in each case as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors), and (ii) such request(s) have been dated and delivered to the Secretary within sixty (60) days of the earliest dated special meeting request.

A stockholder may revoke a request for a special meeting at any time by written revocation delivered to the Secretary of the Corporation, and if, following such revocation, there are un-revoked requests from stockholders holding in the aggregate less than the requisite number of Voting Stock entitling the stockholder(s) to request the calling of a special meeting, the Board of Directors, in its discretion, may cancel the special meeting. If none of the stockholder(s) who submitted the request for a special meeting appears or sends a qualified representative to present the nominations proposed to be presented or other business proposed to be conducted at the special meeting, the Corporation need not present such nominations or other business for a vote at such meeting.

Business transacted at all special meetings shall be confined to the matter(s) stated in the notice of special meeting. Business transacted at a special meeting requested by stockholders shall be limited to the matter(s) described in the special meeting request; provided, however, that nothing herein shall prohibit the Board of Directors from submitting matter(s) to the stockholders at any special meeting requested by stockholder(s).

The Chair of a special meeting shall determine all matter(s) relating to the conduct of the meeting, including, without limitation, determining whether any nomination or other item of business has been properly brought before the meeting in accordance with these By-laws, and if the Chair should so determine and declare that any nomination or other item of business has not been properly brought before the special meeting, then such business shall not be transacted at such meeting.

Special meetings of stockholders may not be called by any person or persons other than as specified by this Section 2.2.

Section 2.3. Notice of Meetings. Whenever stockholders are required or permitted to take any action at a meeting, a written notice of the meeting shall be given that shall state the place, date and hour of the meeting and, in the case of a special meeting, the purpose or purposes for which the meeting is called. Unless otherwise provided by law, the Certificate of Incorporation or these By-laws, the written notice of any meeting shall be given not less than 10 days (unless a greater period of notice is required by law in a particular case) nor more than 60 days before the date of the meeting to each stockholder entitled to vote at such meeting. If mailed, such notice shall be deemed to be given when deposited in the United States mail, postage prepaid, directed to the stockholder at his address as it appears on the records of the Corporation.

2


Section 2.4. Adjournments. Any meeting of stockholders, annual or special, may adjourn from time to time to reconvene at the same or some other place, and notice need not be given of any such adjourned meeting if the time and place thereof are announced at the meeting at which the adjournment is taken. At the adjourned meeting the Corporation may transact any business which might have been transacted at the original meeting. If the adjournment is for more than 30 days, or if after the adjournment a new record date is fixed for the adjourned meeting, notice of the adjourned meeting shall be given to each stockholder of record entitled to vote at the meeting.

Section 2.5. Quorum. Except as otherwise provided by law, the Certificate of Incorporation or these By-laws, at each meeting of stockholders the presence in person or by proxy of the holders of shares of stock having a majority of the votes which could be cast by the holders of all outstanding shares of stock entitled to vote at the meeting shall be necessary and sufficient to constitute a quorum. In the absence of a quorum, the stockholders so present may, by majority vote, adjourn the meeting from time to time in the manner provided in Section 2.4 of these By-laws until a quorum shall attend. Shares of its own stock belonging to the Corporation or to another corporation, if a majority of the shares entitled to vote in the election of directors of such other corporation is held, directly or indirectly, by the Corporation, shall neither be entitled to vote nor be counted for quorum purposes; provided, however, that the foregoing shall not limit the right of the Corporation to vote stock, including but not limited to its own stock, held by it in a fiduciary capacity.

Section 2.6. Organization. Meetings of stockholders shall be presided over by the Chairman of the Board, if any, or in his absence by the Vice Chairman of the Board, if any, or in his absence by the President, or in his absence by a Vice President, or in the absence of the foregoing persons by a chairman designated by the Board of Directors, or in the absence of such designation by a chairman chosen at the meeting. The Secretary shall act as secretary of the meeting, but in his absence the chairman of the meeting may appoint any person to act as secretary of the meeting.

Section 2.7. Voting; Proxies. Except as otherwise provided by the Certificate of Incorporation, each stockholder entitled to vote at any meeting of stockholders shall be entitled to one vote for each share of stock held by him which has voting power upon the matter in question. Each stockholder entitled to vote at a meeting of stockholders may authorize another person or persons to act for him by proxy, but no such proxy shall be voted or acted upon after three years from its date, unless the proxy provides for a longer period. A proxy shall be irrevocable if it states that it is irrevocable and if, and only as long as, it is coupled with an interest sufficient in law to support an irrevocable power. A stockholder may revoke any proxy which is not irrevocable by attending the meeting and voting in person or by filing an instrument in writing revoking the proxy or by delivering a proxy in accordance with applicable law bearing a later date to the Secretary of the Corporation. Voting at meetings of stockholders need not be by written ballot; provided, however, that any election for directors must be by ballot if demanded by any stockholder at the meeting before the election has begun. Voting for the election of directors at any meeting of stockholders shall be as specified in Section 3.3 of these Bylaws. All other matters presented to the stockholders for a vote, unless otherwise provided by law, the Certificate of Incorporation or these Bylaws, shall be decided by the vote of the holders of shares of stock having a majority of the votes which could be cast by the holders of all shares of stock outstanding and entitled to vote thereon.

Section 2.8. Fixing Date for Determination of Stockholders of Record. In order that the Corporation may determine the stockholders entitled to notice of or to vote at any meeting of stockholders or any adjournment thereof, or entitled to receive payment of any dividend or other distribution or allotment of any rights, or entitled to exercise any rights in respect of any change, conversion or exchange of stock or for the purpose of any other lawful action, the Board of Directors may fix a record date, which record date shall not precede the date upon which the resolution fixing the record date is adopted by the Board of Directors and which record date: (1) in the case of determination of stockholders entitled to vote at any meeting of stockholders or adjournment thereof, shall, unless otherwise required by law, not be more than 60 nor less than 10 days before the date of such meeting and (2) in the case of any other action, shall not be more than 60 days prior to such other action. If no record date is fixed: (1) the record date for determining stockholders entitled to notice of or to vote at a meeting of stockholders shall be at the close of business on the day next preceding the day on which notice is given, or, if notice is waived, at the close of business on the day next preceding the day on which the meeting is held and (2) the record date for determining stockholders for any other purpose shall be at the close of business on the day on which the Board of Directors adopts the resolution relating thereto. A determination of stockholders of record entitled to notice of or to vote at a meeting of stockholders shall apply to any adjournment of the meeting; provided, however, that the Board of Directors may fix a new record date for the adjourned meeting.

Section 2.9. List of Stockholders Entitled to Vote. The Secretary shall prepare and make, at least 10 days before every meeting of stockholders, a complete list of the stockholders entitled to vote at the meeting, arranged in alphabetical order, and showing the address of each stockholder and the number of shares registered in the name of each stockholder. Such list shall be open to the examination of any stockholder, for any purpose germane to the meeting, during ordinary business hours, for a period of at least 10 days prior to the meeting, either at a place within the city where the meeting is to be held, which place shall be specified in the notice of the meeting, or if not so specified, at the place where the meeting is to be held. The list shall also be produced and kept at the time and place of the meeting during the whole time thereof and may be inspected by any

3


stockholder who is present. Upon the willful neglect or refusal of the directors to produce such a list at any meeting for the election of directors, they shall be ineligible for election to any office at such meeting. The stock ledger shall be the only evidence as to who are the stockholders entitled to examine the stock ledger, the list of stockholders or the books of the Corporation, or to vote in person or by proxy at any meeting of stockholders.

Section 2.10. Stockholder Proposals at Any Meeting of Stockholders. At a meeting of stockholders, only such business shall be conducted as shall have been properly brought before the meeting. To be properly brought before a meeting of stockholders, business must be specified in the notice of meeting (or any supplement thereto) given by or at the direction of the Board of Directors, otherwise properly brought before the meeting by or at the direction of the Board of Directors, or otherwise properly brought before the meeting by stockholder(s). In addition to any other applicable requirements for business to be properly brought before a meeting by stockholder(s), whether or not the stockholder(s) are seeking to have a proposal included in the Corporation's proxy statement or information statement under any applicable rule of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), including, but not limited to, Regulation 14A or Regulation 14C under the Exchange Act, the stockholder(s) must have given timely notice thereof in writing to the Secretary of the Corporation. To be timely, in the case of stockholder(s) seeking to have a proposal included in the Corporation's proxy statement or information statement, stockholder(s)' notice must be delivered to the Secretary at the Corporation's principal executive offices not less than 120 days or more than 180 days prior to the first anniversary (the "Anniversary") of the date on which the Corporation first mailed its proxy materials for the previous year's annual meeting of stockholders. However, if the date of the annual meeting is advanced more than 30 days prior to or delayed by more than 30 days after the Anniversary of the preceding year's annual meeting, then notice by the stockholder(s) to be timely must be delivered to the Secretary at the Corporation's principal executive offices not later than the close of business on the later of (i) the 90th day prior to such annual meeting or (ii) the 15th day following the day on which public announcement of the date of such meeting is first made. If the stockholder(s) are not seeking inclusion of a proposal in the Corporation's proxy statement or information statement but nonetheless intend to present such proposal at the annual meeting, timely notice consists of stockholder(s)' notice delivered to or mailed and received by the Secretary at the principal executive offices of the Corporation not less than 90 days prior to the date of the annual meeting. In no event shall any adjournment or postponement of an annual meeting or the announcement thereof commence a new time period for the giving of a stockholder's notice as described above. Other than with respect to stockholder proposals relating to director nomination(s) which requirements are set forth in Section 2.11 below, stockholder(s)' notice to the Secretary shall set forth as to each matter the stockholder(s) propose to bring before the meeting of stockholders: (i) a brief description of the business the stockholder(s) desire to bring before the meeting and the reasons for conducting such business at the meeting, (ii) the name and record address of the stockholder(s) proposing such business, (iii) the class and number of shares of the Corporation that are beneficially owned by the stockholder(s), (iv) any material interest of the stockholder(s) in such business; (v) as to the stockholder(s) giving the notice and any Stockholder Associated Person (as defined below), whether and the extent to which any hedging or other transaction or series of transactions has been entered into by or on behalf of, or any other agreement, arrangement or understanding (including, but not limited to, any short position or any borrowing or lending of shares of stock) has been made, the effect or intent of which is to mitigate loss or increase profit to or manage the risk or benefit of stock price changes for, or to increase or decrease the voting power of, such stockholder(s) or any such Stockholder Associated Person with respect to any share of stock of the Corporation (each, a "Relevant Hedge Transaction"), and (vi) as to the stockholder(s) giving the notice and any Stockholder Associated Person, to the extent not set forth pursuant to the immediately preceding clause, (a) whether and the extent to which such stockholder(s) or Stockholder Associated Person has direct or indirect beneficial ownership of any option, warrant, convertible security, stock appreciation right, or similar right with an exercise or conversion privilege or a settlement payment or mechanism at a price related to any class or series of shares of the Corporation, whether or not such instrument or right shall be subject to settlement in the underlying class or series of capital stock of the Corporation or otherwise, or any other direct or indirect opportunity to profit or share in any profit derived from any increase or decrease in the value of shares of the Corporation (a "Derivative Instrument"), (b) any rights to dividends on the shares of the Corporation owned beneficially by such stockholder(s) that are separated or separable from the underlying shares of the Corporation, (c) any proportionate interest in shares of the Corporation or Derivative Instruments held, directly or indirectly, by a general or limited partnership in which such stockholder(s) are a general partner or, directly or indirectly, beneficially owns an interest in a general partner and (d) any performance-related fees (other than an asset-based fee) that such stockholder(s) are entitled to based on any increase or decrease in the value of shares of the Corporation or Derivative Instruments, if any, as of the date of such notice, including without limitation any such interests held by members of such stockholder(s)' immediate family sharing the same household (which information shall be supplemented by such stockholder(s) and beneficial owner(s), if any, not later than 10 days after the record date for the meeting to disclose such ownership as of the record date).

For purposes of this Section 2.10 and Section 2.11, "Stockholder Associated Person" of any stockholder shall mean (i) any person controlling or controlled by, directly or indirectly, or acting in concert with, such stockholder, (ii) any beneficial owner of shares of stock of the Corporation owned of record or beneficially by such stockholder and (iii) any person controlling, controlled by or under common control with such Stockholder Associated Person.

4


The Chairman of a meeting of stockholders shall, if the facts warrant, determine and declare to the meeting that business was not properly brought before the meeting in accordance with the provisions of this Section 2.10 and the other provisions of these By-laws, and if the Chairman should so determine he or she shall so declare to the meeting, and any such business not properly brought before the meeting shall not be transacted.

Nothing in this Section 2.10 shall affect the right of a stockholder to request inclusion of a proposal in the Corporation's proxy statement to the extent that such right is provided by an applicable law.

Section 2.11. Nominations of Persons For Election to the Board of Directors. In addition to any other applicable requirements, only persons who are nominated in accordance with the following procedures shall be eligible for election as directors. Nominations of persons for election to the Board of Directors of the Corporation may be made at a meeting of stockholders by or at the direction of the Board of Directors, by any nominating committee or person appointed by the Board of Directors or by stockholder(s) of the Corporation entitled to vote for the election of directors at the meeting who comply with the notice procedures set forth in this Section 2.11 and the other provisions of these By-laws. Such nominations shall be made pursuant to timely notice in writing to the Secretary of the Corporation at the Corporation's principal executive offices in accordance with these By-laws. To be timely, in the case of stockholder(s) seeking to have a nomination included in the Corporation's proxy statement or information statement, stockholder(s)' notice must be delivered to or mailed and received at the principal executive offices of the Corporation, not less than 120 days or more than 180 days prior to the first Anniversary of the date on which the Corporation first mailed its proxy materials for the previous year's annual meeting of stockholders. However, if the date of the annual meeting is advanced more than 30 days prior to or delayed by more than 30 days after the Anniversary of the preceding year's annual meeting, then notice by stockholder(s) to be timely must be delivered to the Secretary at the Corporation's principal executive offices not later than the close of business on the later of (i) the 90th day prior to such annual meeting or (ii) the 15th day following the day on which public announcement of the date of such meeting is first made. If the stockholder(s) are not seeking inclusion of a nomination in the Corporation's proxy statement or information statement but nonetheless intend to present such nomination at the annual meeting, timely notice consists of stockholder(s)' notice delivered to or mailed and received at the principal executive offices of the Corporation not less than 90 days prior to the date of the annual meeting. In no event shall any adjournment or postponement of an annual meeting or the announcement thereof commence a new time period for the giving of a stockholder's notice as described above. The stockholder(s)' notice relating to director nomination(s) shall set forth (a) as to each person whom the stockholder(s) propose to nominate for election or re-election as a director, (i) the name, age, business address and residence address of the person, (ii) the principal occupation or employment of the person, (iii) the class and number of shares of the Corporation which are beneficially owned by the person, and (iv) any other information relating to the person that is required to be disclosed in solicitations for proxies for election of directors pursuant to Regulation 14A under the Exchange Act; (b) as to the stockholder(s) giving the notice, (i) the name and record address of the stockholder(s), and (ii) the class and number of shares of the Corporation which are beneficially owned by the stockholder(s); (c) as to the stockholder(s) giving the notice and any Stockholder Associated Person (as defined in Section 2.10), to the extent not set forth pursuant to the immediately preceding clause, whether and the extent to which any Relevant Hedge Transaction (as defined in Section 2.10) has been entered into, and (d) as to the stockholder(s) giving the notice and any Stockholder Associated Person, (1) whether and the extent to which any Derivative Instrument (as defined in Section 2.10) is directly or indirectly beneficially owned, (2) any rights to dividends on the shares of the Corporation owned beneficially by such stockholder(s) that are separated or separable from the underlying shares of the Corporation, (3) any proportionate interest in shares of the Corporation or Derivative Instruments held, directly or indirectly, by a general or limited partnership in which such stockholder(s) are a general partner or, directly or indirectly, beneficially owns an interest in a general partner and (4) any performance-related fees (other than an asset-based fee) that such stockholder(s) are entitled to based on any increase or decrease in the value of shares of the Corporation or Derivative Instruments, if any, as of the date of such notice, including without limitation any such interests held by members of such stockholder(s)' immediate family sharing the same household (which information shall be supplemented by such stockholder(s) and beneficial owner(s), if any, not later than 10 days after the record date for the meeting to disclose such ownership as of the record date). The Corporation may require any proposed nominee to furnish such other information as may reasonably be required by the Corporation to determine the eligibility of such proposed nominee to serve as a director of the Corporation. No person shall be eligible for election as a director of the Corporation unless nominated in accordance with the procedures set forth in these By-laws.

The Chairman of a meeting of stockholders shall, if the facts warrant, determine and declare to the meeting that a nomination was not made in accordance with the provisions of this Section 2.11 and the other provisions of these By-laws, and if he should so determine, he shall so declare to the meeting and the defective nomination shall be disregarded.

Section 2.12. No Action By Consent of Stockholders. No action that is required to be taken by the stockholders of the Corporation at any annual or special meeting of stockholders may be effected by written consent of stockholders in lieu of a meeting.

5


Section 2.13. Conduct of Meetings. The Board of Directors of the Corporation may adopt by resolution such rules and regulations for the conduct of the meeting of stockholders as it shall deem appropriate. Except to the extent inconsistent with such rules and regulations as adopted by the Board of Directors, the chairman of any meeting of stockholders shall have the right and authority to prescribe such rules, regulations and procedures and to do all such acts as, in the judgment of such chairman, are appropriate for the proper conduct of the meeting. Such rules, regulations or procedures, whether adopted by the Board of Direc-tors or prescribed by the chairman of the meeting, may include, without limitation, the following: (i) the establish-ment of an agenda or order of business for the meeting; (ii) rules and procedures for maintaining order at the meeting and the safety of those present; (iii) limitations on attendance at or participation in the meeting to stockholders of record of the Corporation, their duly authorized and constituted proxies or such other persons as the chairman of the meeting shall determine; (iv) restrictions on entry to the meeting after the time fixed for the commencement thereof; and (v) limitations on the time allotted to questions or com-ments by participants. Unless and to the extent determined by the Board of Directors or the chairman of the meeting, meetings of stockholders shall not be required to be held in accor-dance with the rules of parliamentary procedure.

Section 2.14. Inspectors of Elections; Opening and Closing the Polls. The Board of Directors by resolution may appoint one or more inspectors, which inspector or inspectors may include individuals who serve the Corporation in other capacities, including, without limitation, as officers, employees, agents or representatives of the Corporation, to act at the meeting and make a written report thereof. One or more persons may be designated as alternate inspectors to replace any inspector who fails to act. If no inspector or alternate has been appointed to act, or if all inspectors or alternates who have been appointed are unable to act, at a meeting of stockholders, the chairman of the meeting shall appoint one or more inspectors to act at the meeting. Each inspector, before discharging his or her duties, shall take and sign an oath faithfully to execute the duties of inspector with strict impartiality and according to the best of his or her ability. The inspectors shall have the duties prescribed by the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware. The chairman of the meeting shall fix and announce at the meeting the date and time of the opening and the closing of the polls for each matter upon which the stockholders will vote at a meeting.

ARTICLE III

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Section 3.1. General Powers. The business and affairs of the Corporation shall be managed by or under the direction of its Board of Directors. In addition to the powers and authorities by these By-laws expressly conferred upon them, the Board of Directors may exercise all such powers of the Corporation and do all such lawful acts and things as are not by law, by the Certificate of Incorporation or by these By-laws required to be exercised or done by the stockholders.

Section 3.2. Number; Qualifications. The Board of Directors shall consist of one or more members, the number to be determined from time to time by resolution of the Board of Directors. Directors need not be stockholders.

Section 3.3. Election; Resignation; Removal; Vacancies. At the first annual meeting of stockholders and at each annual meeting thereafter, the stockholders shall elect directors by a majority of the votes cast unless the number of nominees exceeds the number of directors to be elected, in which case the directors shall be elected by a plurality of the shares represented in person or by proxy at such meeting and entitled to vote on the election of directors. A majority of votes cast means that the number of shares entitled to vote on the election of directors and represented in person or by proxy at such meeting casting their vote "for" a director must exceed the number of such votes cast "against" that director.

For purposes of this Agreement, Non-Standard Product is defined as any Product other than HardCopy that is not listed in Altera's published distributor price list, or that requires special processing by Altera. Once accepted by Altera, orders for Non-Standard Product may not be changed in any way without prior approval of Altera. As a pre-condition to approving a request to change or cancel an order for Non-Standard Product, Altera may require Distributor to compensate Altera for any costs incurred by Altera as a result of the change or cancellation. Certain Non-Standard Product specified by Altera shall be non-cancelable and non-refundable.

5.6 Cancellation by Altera. Altera reserves the right to cancel any orders placed by Distributor and accepted by Altera as set forth above, or to refuse or delay shipment thereof, if:

(a) Distributor fails to make any payment as provided in this Agreement or under the terms of payment set forth in any invoice or otherwise agreed to by Altera and Distributor;

(b) Distributor fails to meet reasonable credit or financial requirements established by Altera, including any limitations on allowable credit;

(c) Distributor otherwise fails to comply with the terms and conditions of this Agreement;

(d) this Agreement is terminated and the scheduled delivery would take place after the Agreement's termination date; or

(e) circumstances beyond Altera's control prevent it from shipping any order by the requested delivery date.

Altera also reserves the right to discontinue the manufacture or distribution of any or all of the Products at any time, and to cancel any orders for such discontinued Products, and, except as set forth in this subparagraph 5.6(e), without liability of any kind to Distributor or to any other person. No such cancellation, refusal or delay will be deemed a termination (unless Altera so advises Distributor) or breach of this Agreement by Altera. Altera will attempt, but is not required, to provide Distributor with at least sixty (60) days advance written notice of Product discontinuances in the same manner as is provided to customers in general. Distributor may, in its discretion, within sixty (60) days of its receipt of such notice, notify Altera in writing of its intention to return any or all such Products which remain in its inventory for a credit equal to the net price paid by Distributor for such Products. The Products will be returned within sixty (60) days of the date of Distributor's receipt of Altera's return authorization. Altera will pay all freight and shipping charges in connection with any such returns.

6. PAYMENT

6.1 Terms and Interest. Payment shall be made according to the terms specified in writing by Altera and agreed to by Arrow. Interest shall be payable at the rate of one-and-one-half percent (1.5%) per month or at the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is less, on all overdue and unpaid invoices. Altera has the right to invoice Distributor for any unauthorized discounts or deductions taken by Distributor, and Distributor shall make payment on such invoices net thirty (30) days.

6.3 Taxes, Tariffs, and Fees. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by Altera, all prices quoted by Altera for the Products do not include any national, state, or local sales, use, value added or other taxes, customs duties, or similar tariffs and fees. Distributor shall be responsible and liable for the payment of any taxes, customs duties, or other government fees and tariffs applicable to the Products, except for taxes based on Altera's net income, unless Distributor has provided Altera with an exemption resale certificate in the appropriate form for the jurisdiction to which the Products are to be directly shipped. Distributor agrees to indemnify Altera for any claim for taxes, customs duties, or other government fees and tariffs applicable to the Products that may be levied on Altera.

6.4 Set-Off. Altera will have the right to setoff against any payment obligation owed to Distributor any amounts due to Altera or to Altera's affiliates or subsidiaries.

7. SHIPMENT AND RISK OF LOSS:

7.1 Shipment. Orders issued by the Distributor will specify requested shipment dates. Distributor will select the mode of shipment and the carrier. Altera will pay for packing costs. Distributor will be responsible for and pay all shipping, freight, and insurance charges, which charges Altera may require Distributor to pay in advance.

7.2 Delays in Shipment. Altera will use commercially reasonable efforts to ship products to arrive by any requested delivery dates quoted or acknowledged. However, Altera will not be liable for any delay in shipment or delay in performance under this Agreement due to unforeseen circumstances or due to causes beyond its control including but not limited to, acts of nature, acts of government, labor disputes, delays in transportation, and delays in delivery or inability to deliver by Altera's suppliers.

7.3 Right to Ship Ahead. Altera reserves the right to ship up to three (3) days in advance of the calculated ship date necessary to meet Distributor's requested dock date. Distributor will accept delivery of such shipments.

7.4 Risk of Loss. Title and risk of loss or damage to the Products shall pass to Distributor, or to such financing institution or other party or parties as may have been designated to Altera by Distributor: (i) when Altera releases the Products to the carrier at Altera's shipping point if Altera ships from Altera or warehousing facilities located within one country to a destination within the same country; (ii) when the Products arrive at Distributor's shipping destination if Altera ships the Products from Altera's facilities in the United States to a destination in Mexico or Canada; and (iii) when the Products arrive at a place one mile following the Products' departure from the territorial boundaries of the jurisdiction in which the shipping origin is located, in all cases not covered by (i) or (ii). Upon passage of title and risk of loss or damage, Altera advises Distributor to insure Products for the full purchase price paid by Distributor to Altera.

8. PRICES

8.1 Altera's Prices. Distributor shall purchase products at Altera's prices as are in effect at the time the order is received from the Distributor.

8.2 Price Changes: From time to time, Altera may decide to change the prices for the Products.

(a) Price decreases: In the event of a price decrease by Altera, Altera will invoice Distributor at the lower price for all orders placed by Distributor that have not been delivered as of the effective date of the price decrease.

(b) Price increases: In the event of a price increase, Altera will announce to Distributor its intention to raise prices at least thirty (30) days before the effective date of such a price increase. Distributor shall have the right to cancel (within ten (10) days of the announcement of a price increase) any orders for Product for which Altera has announced a price increase.

8.3 Credit for Inventory Invoiced at Higher Price. In the event of a price decrease, Altera shall issue a credit to Distributor in the amount of the price decrease for all unsold Products then stocked by the Distributor provided that Distributor satisfies the terms and conditions specified in subparagraphs 8.4 and 8.5(b) and (c).


8.4 Record Keeping for Price Decrease Credits. As a condition of Altera issuing Distributor a credit pursuant to subparagraph 8.3, Altera must receive an inventory report from Distributor no later than thirty (30) days after the effective date of the price decrease. No credit will be due Distributor if Distributor fails to furnish such inventory report within the thirty (30) day period. Altera shall have the right to audit the information provided in this report against the previous inventory reports and subsequent resale reports. Altera may conduct such audit in accordance with the provisions of subparagraph 3.7 of this Agreement. Upon verification of Distributor's claim for credit, Altera shall issue a credit to Distributor's account.

8.5 Procedure for Submitting Claims for Credit.

(a) Distributor must submit its claims for the following types of credits within sixty (60) days of the following:

(i) Price Discrepancies: the date of any invoice that contains a price discrepancy; or

(ii) SSD (ship from stock debit): sales out date.

Altera will not honor any claims for credit submitted after the sixty (60) day period.

(b) All claims for credit must specify the invoice number(s) to which the claim applies.

(c) If Altera provided Distributor with a discount on its regular prices at the time that Altera invoiced Distributor for the Products that are the subject of a claim for credit, Altera shall subtract from the credit the proportional amount of the prior discount.

9. STOCK ROTATION AND RETURNS

9.1 Return of Products. If Altera determines in accordance with its Stock Rotation Policy that Distributor's inventory is overstocked with certain Products, Distributor may return such Products to Altera pursuant to subparagraph 9.2. Products that are obsolete or discontinued may only be returned pursuant to subparagraph 9.3 of this Agreement. Returns of Products that are permitted in connection with the termination of this Agreement are subject to paragraph 14. All returns require a Return Material Authorization ("RMA") and must follow Altera return policies.

Distributor shall bear all freight costs and risk of loss or damage during shipment of returned Products and shall ship returned Products in accordance with Altera's reasonable instructions.

Distributor's account will be credited by Altera in the amount paid by Distributor for the returned Products after Altera receives the Products and verifies their quantity and quality. All returned Products must be unused, undamaged, and in Altera factory-sealed bags or Altera factory-shipped boxes. Distributor may not take any deductions from payments due to Altera before Altera has issued a credit to Distributor; Altera will charge interest at the rate of one-and-one-half percent (1.5%) per month or at the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is less, from the date that Distributor makes any unauthorized deductions.

9.2 Procedure for Stock Rotations. Each Altera fiscal semi-annual (i.e. six-month) period, Altera will accept one (1) Stock Rotation return from Distributor for the purpose of clearing Distributor's inventory of Product that in Distributor's reasonable judgment is unlikely to be sold. If Distributor does not initiate a Stock Rotation return before the end of the applicable Altera fiscal semi-annual period, that period's allowance will be forfeited. Under this provision, Distributor may return to Altera Product valued at up to five percent (5%) of Altera's net billings to Distributor for the Altera fiscal semi-annual period prior to the Stock Rotation. A portion of such approved stock rotation total dollar level, not to exceed five percent (5%) thereof, may be eligible to be scrapped under the Altera scrap policies. As a precondition for accepting a Stock Rotation, Altera may require that Distributor take delivery from Altera of Product of value equal to or less than the value of the Product returned.

9.3 Obsolete and Discontinued Products. Altera may render obsolete or discontinue the manufacture and/or sale of any Product ("Discontinued Product") and shall notify Distributor of any Discontinued Product. Distributor shall have the right to return Discontinued Product to Altera to the extent purchased from Altera within the twenty-four (24) months prior to the date of Product discontinuation notice. Within thirty (30) days of the last order date, Distributor shall notify Altera of Distributor's intention to return any Discontinued Product in its inventory which was purchased by Distributor from Altera. Such notification shall include the Last Time Ship date for such Discontinued Product. Distributor's account will be credited by Altera in the amount paid by Distributor for the returned Products after Altera receives the Products and


verifies their quantity and quality. Debit claims for Discontinued Product will be honored for six (6) months after the Last Time Ship date.

9.4 Administrative Procedures for Returns. Product returns to Altera pursuant to subparagraphs 9.2, 9.3, and 14.5(c) as well as any other Product returns to Altera are subject to the following provisions:

(a) Distributor must request and receive from Altera a Return Material Authorization number for each return prior to shipping Product to Altera. Altera will not unreasonably withhold Return Material Authorizations.

(b) Altera retains the right to review all line items prior to return and approve or deny any item requested for return by Distributor. Altera will establish and publish reasonable requirements for the approval of return line items, and for the handling and packaging of Product to be returned, in order to protect the quality of Altera Products and minimize the administrative expenses associated with returns.

(c) Return Material Authorization numbers are valid for sixty (60) days from the date of issuance to Distributor. If Distributor fails to return the Products within that sixty (60) day period, Altera shall not be obligated to accept the Products or to credit Distributor's account for the Products.

9.5 Defective Products. Defective or non-conforming Products shall be subject to the warranty provisions of paragraph 10 of this Agreement.

10. WARRANTIES

10.1 Altera's Warranties to Distributor.

11. ALTERA'S INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

11.1 Trademark Use During Agreement. During the term of this Agreement, Distributor is authorized by Altera to use the Trademarks in connection with Distributor's advertisement, promotion, and distribution of the Products. Altera reserves the right to review and reject Distributor's use of Trademarks. Distributor shall not use the Trademarks, or any part thereof, separately or in combination, as a part of or in connection with its firm, trade, or corporate name. Distributor's use of the Trademarks will be in accordance with Altera's policies in effect from time to time, including but not limited to trademark usage and co-operative advertising policies.

11.2 Copyright, Patent, and Trademark Notices. As both a covenant by Distributor and a condition of Altera's sale or license of the Products to Distributor, Distributor will include on each copy of the Products that it distributes, and on all containers and storage media, all copyright, patent, trademark, and other notices of proprietary rights included by Altera on the Products. Distributor agrees not to alter, erase, deface, or overprint any such notice on anything provided by Altera.

11.3 No Distributor Rights in Altera Intellectual Property Rights. Distributor has paid no consideration for the use of Altera's copyrights, patents, trademarks, or trade secrets and nothing contained in this Agreement shall give Distributor any interest in any of them. Distributor acknowledges that Altera owns or holds a license to all copyrights, patents, trademarks, or trade secrets related to the Products and agrees that it will not knowingly at any time during or after this Agreement assert or claim any interest in or do anything that may adversely affect the validity or enforceability of any copyrights, patents, trademarks, or trade secrets owned by or licensed to Altera (including, without limitation, any act, or assistance to act, which may infringe or lead to the infringement of any copyrights, patents, trademarks, or trade secrets related to the Products). Nothing in this subparagraph shall prevent Distributor from challenging the validity of any trademark, copyright, or patent. Distributor agrees not to attach any additional trademarks, logos, or trade names to any Product. Distributor further agrees not to affix any of the Trademarks to any product not manufactured or sold by Altera.

11.4 No Continuing Rights in Trademarks. Upon expiration or termination of this Agreement, Distributor will immediately cease all display, advertising and use of all Trademarks and will not thereafter use, advertise, or display any name, mark or

11.7 Patent Indemnity.

(a) Altera shall defend any suit, proceeding, or claim of infringement asserted against Distributor insofar as such suit, proceeding, or claim of infringement alleges that any Product manufactured and supplied by Altera to Distributor infringes any duly issued patent, and Altera shall pay all damages and costs finally awarded therein against Distributor, provided that Altera promptly is informed and furnished a copy of each communication, notice or other action relating to the alleged infringement and is given authority, information, and assistance (at Altera's expense) necessary to defend or settle said suit or proceeding. Altera shall have the absolute right to control the defense and settlement of any infringement suit or proceeding for which Distributor seeks indemnification under this subparagraph. Altera shall not be obligated to defend or be liable for costs and damages if the infringement arises out of (1) Products that are manufactured by Altera in accordance with Distributor's specifications, or (2) the Products being combined with or added to another product, or (3) the Products being modified after delivery to Distributor by Altera, or (4) from use of the Products, or any part thereof, in the practice of a process. Altera's obligations hereunder shall not apply to any infringement occurring after Distributor has received notice of such suit or proceeding alleging the infringement unless Altera has given written permission for such use by Distributor.

(b) If any Products manufactured and supplied by Altera to Distributor shall be held to infringe any United States patent and Distributor shall be enjoined from using the same, Altera will at its option and at its expense (1) procure for Distributor the right to use such Products free of any liability for patent infringement, or (2) replace such Products with non-infringing substitute Products, or (3) refund the purchase price of such Products.

(c) If the infringement by Distributor is alleged prior to Altera's completion of delivery of the Products, Altera may decline to make further shipments without being in breach of this Agreement.

(d) If any suit, proceeding, or claim of infringement is asserted against Altera based on a claim that the goods manufactured by Altera in compliance with Distributor's specifications and supplied to Distributor directly infringe any duly issued United States patent, then Distributor shall indemnify Altera to the same extent as specified in subparagraph 11.7(a) of this Agreement. However, Distributor shall not be obligated to indemnify Altera for specifications developed solely by Distributor's end customer.

(e) THE FOREGOING STATES THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE LIABILITY OF THE PARTIES HERETO FOR PATENT INFRINGEMENT AND IS IN LIEU OF ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, IN REGARD THERETO.

In particular, Distributor agrees that it shall not be entitled for any purpose to transmit any Software Product or to display any Software Product's object code on any computer screen or to make any hard copy memory dumps of any Software Product's object code. If Distributor believes it requires information related to the interoperability of any of Altera Software Products with other programs, Distributor shall not decompile or otherwise reverse engineer any of Altera Software Products to obtain such information, and Distributor agrees to request such information from Altera. Upon receiving such a request from Distributor, Altera shall reasonably determine whether Distributor requires such information for a legitimate purpose, and if so, Altera will provide such information to Distributor within a reasonable time and on reasonable conditions. Other than as explicitly permitted above, Distributor agrees that it will not apply any techniques to ascertain trade secret information about any of the Products. Distributor shall make any sublicense to Distributor's customers subject to this subparagraph.
