ATML shall provide efforts to correct any documented reproducible errors in the Source Code of the Licensed Technology within a reasonable time, and to use due diligence to rectify such errors that have been notified in writing by Licensee, provided, that such program errors have not been introduced through modifications to the Licensed Technology made by or on behalf of the Licensee. 2. Product Upgrade. Should ATML make any Product Upgrade, ATML will undertake to: 2.1. Inform Licensee of such Product Upgrade; and 2.2 Supply Licensee with the said Product Upgrade; and 2.3. provide advance notification to Licensee of pending changes such that Licensee can timely integrate its changes into the Generated Technology. 3. Licensee shall be solely responsible for directly supporting and providing maintenance of all or any part of the Licensed Technology, Generated Technology and documentation as provided to Licensee's customers. ATML shall have no obligation to provide any direct consultation or maintenance support to Licensee's customers with respect to all or any part of the Licensed Technology, Generated Technology or other subject matter of this Agreement. 4. License Grants to Updates or Upgrades. Any rights and obligations of Licensee to Source Form and Object Form of the Licensed Technology shall extend to any updates or upgrades upon delivery from ATML to Licensee. 5. Limitations. If ATML is requested, to correct an error and such error is found to be caused by Licensee's negligence, modification by Licensee, Licensee supplied data, operator error or misuse, or any other cause not inherent in the Source Code of the Licensed Technology, Licensee agrees to pay for such support services on a time and material basis at ATML's then prevailing standard rates and on ATML's standard terms of business at the time such service is provided to Licensee by ATML. SCHEDULE 4 LICENSE AND ROYALTY FEES The license and royalty fees for each use of the Licensed Technology or the Generated Technology are: ================================================================================================================================= License PART NO. Name Type License Fees Royalty --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- VT5000 VM8100 Virata PCR as described in this See Below Switch Ethernet Section 5 of this Adapter Software agreement Access Pack --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- VT5100 VM8100 Virata PCR as described in See Below Switch Ethernet Section 5 of this Adapter Hardware agreement Access Pack ================================================================================================================================= Per-unit Royalties will be payable on all products sold which contain the Licensed Technology or Generated Technology as set forth below: [*] of 'Equivalent Sales Price' of the unit, whichever is less, capped by a lifetime maximum of [*]. DEFINITIONS: 'Equivalent Sales Price' shall be the greater of the actual sales price of the unit, or the complete manufactured cost of the unit with the Licensee's standard markup applied. Per-copy royalty ('PCR') - The license granted in accordance with the terms of this Agreement are to provide and install object code derived from the Licensed Technology on a specified number of systems. The Licensee will prior to the grant of any such license establish and operate procedures acceptable to ATML by which the number of such installations can be recorded. Licensee will submit such proposed procedures to ATML for approval prior to the grant of any such license and will not grant any such license until the procedures have been approved by ATML. Licensee will notify ATML on a quarterly basis of the number of such installations and will pay the appropriate Royalty to ATML in accordance with the provisions of clause 5 of this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt royalties shall be paid on the Generated Technology mutatis mutandis to the payment of royalties on the Licensed Technology from which it was derived. *Certain information on this page has been omitted and filed separately with the Commission. Confidential treatment has been requested with respect to the omitted portions. SCHEDULE 5 THE TERRITORY The world. SCHEDULE 6 SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE SERVICES TO BE PROVIDED Com21 acknowledges that this Licensing Agreement and associated Maintenance Services provide for only scheduled training, and phone and email support of a consultation nature. All contacts with ATML engineering will be through a single designated support person. During the technology integration phase where Com21 modifies the Licensed Technology and develops its Generated Technology, ATML may provide at its convenience additional engineering review support for Com2 I's design and modifications. This will only be on a scheduled basis, and will not include design engineering or debugging assistance besides the support of a consultation nature as provided in this agreement. ATML, at its discretion, may allow the use of its facilities in a scheduled and pre-agreed manner to facilitate Com21's development, debugging and bring-up of the Generated Technology. This does not imply a commitment on ATML's part to engineering design or support beyond that described in this agreement, nor does it imply a guarantee of operability of Com2 I's generated technology. ATML will make available sufficient engineering time to review Com21's schematic (to occur in late March, 1996) and PCB layout (to occur in early April, 1997) for the 10BaseT design modification being undertaken by Com21 personnel based on ATML's Ethernet card. Such face to face joint working sessions would include review of the CAM, new Ethernet chip, ATM425 interface additional UART, among others. Licensee estimates this support would be over an elapsed period of approximately 24 hours. ATML will provide consulting engineering in assisting Licensee in making the modified 10BaseT board operational (bringing it up). Licensee estimates that this support would be over an elapsed period of approximately 40-60 hours (to occur in late April, 1997). ATML will provide consulting engineering to review the Ethernet and ATM driver code changes, and provide standard consulting support as described in this agreement for the initial SNMP and miscellaneous software integration for Licensee's controller card that uses ATML's OS. This would be over an elapsed period of approximately two (2) weeks (to occur in late February, 1997). ATML may, at its sole discretion, permit the use of its facilities to assist Com21 during this debug and integration phase. In addition, ATML will provide support for general questions regarding the Licensed Technology as well as development environment on an ongoing basis as described in this agreement. Licensee shall provide ATML with a detailed schedule of support requests. Licensee will use its best efforts to inform ATML of schedule changes at least 4 weeks in advance. ATML cannot guarantee the availability of specific engineering resources without such advanced notice and prior agreement from ATML. SCHEDULE 7 ATML DESIGNATED REPRESENTATIVE Fred Sammartino, Vice President of Business Development The above stated contact may change from time to time with written notice to Licensee.
