This certifies, in consideration of entering into that Amendment to Manufacturing Agreement dated March 29, 2002 by and between Com21, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the 'Company') and Flextronics Malaysia SDN BHD, that Flextronics International Ltd. or its registered assigns ('Holder') is entitled, subject to the terms set forth below, to purchase from the Company 150,000 shares of the Common Stock of the Company (such shares of Common Stock, as adjusted as provided herein, the 'Shares'), as constituted on the date hereof (the 'Warrant Issue Date'), upon surrender hereof, at the principal office of the Company referred to below, with the Notice of Exercise attached hereto as Exhibit A duly executed, and simultaneous payment therefor in lawful money of the United States or otherwise as hereinafter provided, at the Exercise Price as set forth in Section 2 below. The number, character and Exercise Price of such Shares are subject to adjustment as provided below. The term 'Warrant' as used herein shall include this Warrant, and any warrants delivered in substitution or exchange therefor as provided herein.
Term of Warrant. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, this Warrant shall be exercisable, in whole or in part, during the term commencing on the Warrant Issue Date and ending at 5:00 p.m., Pacific Standard Time, on March 28, 2005 (the 'Expiration Date'), and shall be void thereafter.
Exercise Price. The Exercise Price at which this Warrant may be exercised shall be $1.31 per Share, as adjusted from time to time pursuant to Section 12 hereof.
Exercise of Warrant.
Cash Exercise. The purchase rights represented by this Warrant are exercisable by the Holder in whole or in part; such number being subject to adjustment as provided in Section 12 below), at any time, on or prior to the Expiration Date, by the surrender of this Warrant and the Notice of Exercise duly completed and executed on behalf of the Holder, at the office of the Company (or such other office or agency of the Company as it may designate by notice in writing to the Holder at the address of the Holder appearing on the books of the Company), upon payment (i) in cash or by check acceptable to the Company, (ii) by cancellation by the Holder of indebtedness of the Company to the Holder, or (iii) by a combination of (i) and (ii), of the aggregate Exercise Price of the Shares to be purchased.
Net Exercise Election. In lieu of exercising this Warrant by paying the Exercise Price in cash, by check or by cancellation of indebtedness, the Holder may elect, without payment of any additional consideration, to receive Shares equal to the value of this Warrant or any portion thereof by surrender of this Warrant at the principal office of the Company ('Net Exercise'), together with notice of such election, in which event the Company shall issue to the Holder such number of Shares as is computed using the following formula:
X = Y x (A-B)

For purposes of this Section 3(b), 'Fair Market Value' means, as to a Share, (i) the average of the closing prices of sales on all domestic securities exchanges on which the Shares may at the time be listed, or (ii) if there have been no sales on any such exchange on such day, the average of the highest bid and lowest asked prices on all such exchanges at the end of such day, or (iii) if on such day the Shares are not so listed, the average of the representative bid and ask prices quoted in the Nasdaq National Market as of 4:00 P.M., New York time, on such day, or (iv) if on any day the Shares are not quoted in the Nasdaq National Market, the average of the highest bid and lowest asked prices on such day in the domestic over-the-counter market as reported by the National Quotation Bureau, Incorporated, or any similar successor organization, in each such case averaged over the period of twenty (20) trading days immediately preceding two (2) days preceding the date of the net issue election or other exercise is made pursuant to this Section 3(b). If at any time the Shares are not listed on any domestic securities exchange or quoted in the Nasdaq National Market or the domestic over-the counter market, the 'Fair Market Value' shall be the fair value thereof determined by the Board of Directors of the Company in good faith upon the request of the Holder, and in such case, the Company will promptly respond in writing to an inquiry by the Holder as to the then Fair Market Value of the Shares.
Automatic Net Exercise on Expiration. To the extent this Warrant is not previously exercised as to all of the Shares subject hereto, and if the Fair Market Value of a Share is greater than the Exercise Price then in effect, this Warrant shall be deemed automatically exercised pursuant to Section 3(b) above (even if not surrendered) prior to the Expiration Date. To the extent this Warrant or any portion hereof is deemed automatically exercised pursuant to this Section 3(c), the Company shall promptly notify the Holder of the number of Shares or other securities, if any, the Holder hereof is to receive by reason of such automatic exercise.
Certificates. This Warrant shall be deemed to have been exercised immediately prior to the close of business on the date of its surrender for exercise as provided above, and the person entitled to receive the Shares issuable upon such exercise shall be treated for all purposes as the holder of record of such Shares as of the close of business on such date.

Rights of Stockholders. Subject to Sections 9 and 11 of this Warrant, the Holder shall not be entitled to vote or receive dividends or be deemed the holder of Shares or any other securities of the Company that may at any time be issuable on the exercise of this Warrant for any purpose, nor shall anything contained herein be construed to confer upon the Holder, as such, any of the rights of a stockholder of the Company or any right to vote for the election of directors or upon any matter submitted to stockholders at any meeting thereof, or to give or withhold consent to any corporate action (whether upon any recapitalization, issuance of stock, reclassification of stock, change of par value, or change of stock to no par value, consolidation, merger, conveyance, or otherwise) or to receive notice of meetings, or to receive dividends or subscription rights or otherwise until the Warrant shall have been exercised and the Shares isssuable upon the exercise hereof shall have been issued, as provided herein.

The Company further covenants that all Shares that may be issued upon exercise of the rights represented by this Warrant and payment of the Exercise Price, all as set forth herein, will be validly issued, fully paid, non-assessable and free from all taxes, liens, and other charges in respect of the issue thereof (other than taxes in respect of any transfer occurring contemporaneously or otherwise specified herein). The Company agrees that its issuance of this Warrant shall constitute full authority to its officers who are charged with the duty of executing stock certificates to execute and issue the necessary certificates for Shares and to distribute such other securities or property as may be issuable upon the exercise of this Warrant.
(a) The Company shall file, as promptly as reasonably practicable and in any event within ninety (90) days of the Warrant Issue Date, a registration statement on Form S-3, (or any successor form then available covering the issuance and resale of securities with respect to this Warrant) (the 'Registration Statement') covering the issuance and resale of the Shares to be issued upon exercise of this Warrant (the 'Registrable Securities'). The Company shall use its reasonable best efforts to (i) cause such Registration Statement to be declared effective as soon as practicable thereafter, and (ii) to keep such Registration Statement continuously effective, supplemented and amended to the extent necessary to comply with the provisions of the Act with respect to the disposition of all of the Registrable Securities until the earlier of (A) the date which is two (2) years after the date hereof, (B) the date one year after this Warrant shall have been exercised in full (or, if this Warrant shall have been exercised in a 'net exercise' pursuant to Section 3(b), one year after the Warrant Issue Date) and (C) the date when all Registrable Securities covered by such Registration Statement have been sold.
(b) All expenses incurred in connection with the registration pursuant to this Section 9, excluding underwriters' or brokers' discounts and commissions and any fees of counsel for the Holder, but including registration fees, all fees and expenses of complying with state securities laws, and the fees and disbursements of the Company's counsel and accountants, shall be paid by the Company.
(c) In the event any Registrable Securities are included in a Registration Statement under this Agreement:
(i) The Company shall indemnify and hold harmless the Holder, such Holder's directors and officers, each person who participates in the offering of such Registrable Securities, including underwriters (as defined in the Act), and each person, if any, who controls such Holder or participating person within the meaning of the Act (collectively, the 'Holder Indemnified Parties'), against any losses, claims, damages or liabilities, joint or several, to which they may become subject under the Act or otherwise, insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or proceedings in respect thereof) arise out of or are based upon any untrue or alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained in the Registration Statement on the effective date thereof (including any prospectus filed under Rule 424 under the Act or any amendments or supplements thereto) or arise out of or are based upon the omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, and shall reimburse such Holder Indemnified Parties for any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by them in connection with investigating or defending any such loss, claim, damage, liability or action, as such expenses are incurred; provided, however, that this indemnity agreement shall not apply to amounts paid in settlement of any such loss, claim, damage, liability or action if such settlement is effected without the consent of the Company; provided, further, that the Company shall not be liable to any Holder Indemnified Party in any such case for any such loss, claim, damage, liability or action to the extent that it arises out of or is based upon an untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission made in connection with the Registration Statement, preliminary or final prospectus, or amendments or supplements thereto, in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished by or on behalf of such Holder Indemnified Party expressly for use in connection with such registration. Such indemnity shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of any such Holder Indemnified Party and shall survive the transfer of the Registrable Securities and any termination of the Warrant.
(ii) The Holder shall indemnify and hold harmless the Company, each of its directors and officers, each person, if any, who controls the Company within the meaning of the Act, and each agent and any underwriter for the Company (within the meaning of the Act) (collectively, the 'Company Indemnified Parties') against any losses, claims, damages or liabilities, joint or several, to which any such Company Indemnified Party may become subject under the Act or otherwise, insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or proceedings in respect thereof) arise out of or are based upon any untrue or alleged untrue statement of any material fact contained in the Registration Statement (including any prospectus filed under Rule 424 under the Act or any amendments or supplements thereto) or arise out of or are based upon the omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading, in each case to the extent, but only to the extent, that such untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission was made in the Registration Statement, preliminary or final prospectus, or amendments or supplements thereto, in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished by or on behalf of the Holder expressly for use in connection with such registration; and the Holder shall reimburse any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by any Company Indemnified Party in connection with investigating or defending any such loss, claim, damage, liability or action; provided, however, that this indemnity agreement shall not apply to amounts paid in settlement of any such loss, claim, damage, liability or action if such settlement is effected without the consent of the Holder; provided, further, that the liability of the Holder hereunder shall be limited to the proportion of any such loss, claim, damage, liability or expense which is equal to the proportion that the net proceeds from the sale of the shares sold by the Holder under such Registration Statement bears to the total net proceeds from the sale of all securities sold thereunder, but not in any event to exceed the net proceeds received by the Holder from the sale of Registrable Securities covered by such Registration Statement.
(iii) Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party under this Section 9(b) of notice of the commencement of any action, such indemnified party shall, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against any indemnifying party under this Section 9(b), notify the indemnifying party in writing of the commencement thereof and the indemnifying party shall have the right to participate in and assume the defense thereof with counsel selected by the indemnifying party and reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified party; provided, however, that an indemnified party shall have the right to retain its own counsel, with all fees and expenses thereof to be paid by such indemnified party, and to be apprised of all progress in any proceeding the defense of which has been assumed by the indemnifying party.
(iv) To the extent any indemnification by an indemnifying party is prohibited or limited by law, the indemnifying party, in lieu of indemnifying such indemnified party, shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such indemnified party as a result of such losses, claims, damages or liabilities in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative fault of the indemnifying party and indemnified party in connection with the actions which resulted in such losses, claims, damages or liabilities, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations. The relative fault of such indemnifying party and indemnified party shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether any action in question, including any untrue or alleged untrue statement of material fact or omission or alleged omission to state a material fact, has been made by, or relates to information supplied by, such indemnifying party or indemnified party, and the parties' relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such action. The amount paid or payable by a party as a result of the losses, claims, damages or liabilities referred to above shall be deemed to include any legal or other fees or expenses reasonably incurred by such party in connection with any investigation or proceeding. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.
Certificates of Adjustment. Whenever the Exercise Price or number of shares purchasable hereunder shall be adjusted pursuant to Section 12 hereof, the Company shall issue a certificate signed by its Chief Financial Officer setting forth, in reasonable detail, the event requiring the adjustment, the amount of the adjustment, the method by which such adjustment was calculated and the Exercise Price and number of Shares purchasable hereunder after giving effect to such adjustment, and shall cause a copy of such certificate to be mailed (by first class mail, postage prepaid) to the Holder of this Warrant.

Such notice shall be mailed at least 20 days prior to the date therein specified.
Notice Mechanics. All notices and other communications required or permitted hereunder shall be in writing, shall be deemed to be given upon receipt or, if earlier, (a) five (5) days after deposit with the U.S. Postal Service or other applicable postal service, if delivered by first class mail, postage prepaid, (b) upon delivery, if delivered by hand, (c) one business day after the business day of deposit with Federal Express or similar overnight courier, freight prepaid for priority overnight delivery, or (d) one business day after the business day of facsimile transmission, if delivered by facsimile transmission with copy by first class mail, postage prepaid, and shall be addressed (i) if to the Holder, at the Holder's address as set forth on the Warrant Register, and (ii) if to the Company, at the address of its principal corporate offices (attention: Chief Financial Officer) or at such other address as a party may designate by ten days advance written notice to the other party pursuant to the provisions above.

(a) Any term of this Warrant may only be amended with the written consent of the Company and the Holder. Any amendment effected in accordance with this Section 11 shall be binding upon each holder of any of the Common Stock Warrants, each future holder of all such Common Stock Warrants, and the Company; provided, however, that such amendment must apply to all such holders equally and ratably in accordance with the number of Shares issuable upon exercise of their Common Stock Warrants. The Company shall promptly give notice to all holders of Common Stock Warrants of any amendment effected in accordance with this Section 11.
(b) No waivers of or exceptions to any term, condition or provision of this Warrant, in any one or more instances, shall be deemed to be, or construed as, a further or continuing waiver of any such term, condition or provision.
Adjustments. The Exercise Price and the number of Shares purchasable hereunder are subject to adjustment from time to time as follows:
12.1 Merger, Sale of Assets, Etc.If at any time, while this Warrant, or any portion thereof, is outstanding and unexpired there shall be (i) a reorganization (other than a combination, reclassification, exchange or subdivision of shares otherwise provided for herein), (ii) a merger or consolidation of the Company with or into another corporation in which the Company is not the surviving entity, or a reverse triangular merger in which the Company is the surviving entity but the shares of the Company's capital stock outstanding immediately prior to the merger are converted by virtue of the merger into other property, whether in the form of securities, cash, or otherwise, or (iii) a sale or transfer of the Company's properties and assets as, or substantially as, an entirety to any other person, then, as a part of such reorganization, merger, consolidation, sale or transfer, lawful provision shall be made so that the holder of this Warrant shall thereafter be entitled to receive upon exercise of this Warrant, during the period specified herein and upon payment of the Exercise Price then in effect, the number of shares of stock or other securities or property of the successor corporation resulting from such reorganization, merger, consolidation, sale or transfer which a holder of the shares deliverable upon exercise of this Warrant would have been entitled to receive in such reorganization, consolidation, merger, sale or transfer had this Warrant been exercised immediately before such reorganization, merger, consolidation, sale or transfer, all subject to further adjustment as provided in this Section 12. The foregoing provisions of this Section 12.1 shall similarly apply to successive reorganizations, consolidations, mergers, sales and transfers and to the stock or securities of any other corporation which are at the time receivable upon the exercise of this Warrant. If the per share consideration payable to the holder hereof for shares in connection with any such transaction is in a form other than cash or marketable securities, then the value of such consideration shall be determined in good faith by the Company's Board of Directors. In all events, appropriate adjustment (as determined in good faith by the Company's Board of Directors) shall be made in the application of the provisions of this Warrant with respect to the rights and interests of the Holder after the transaction, to the end that the provisions of this Warrant shall be applicable after that event, as near as reasonably may be, in relation to any shares or other property deliverable after that event upon exercise of this Warrant.
12.2 Reclassification, etc.If the Company at any time while this Warrant, or any portion thereof, remains outstanding and unexpired shall, by reclassification of securities or otherwise, change any of the securities as to which purchase rights under this Warrant exist into the same or a different number of securities of any other class or classes, this Warrant shall thereafter represent the right to acquire such number and kind of securities as would have been issuable as the result of such change with respect to the securities which were subject to the purchase rights under this Warrant immediately prior to such reclassification or other change and the Exercise Price therefor shall be appropriately adjusted, all subject to further adjustment as provided in Section 12.
12.3 Split, Subdivision or Combination of Shares. If the Company at any time while this Warrant, or any portion thereof, remains outstanding and unexpired shall split, subdivide or combine the securities as to which purchase rights under this Warrant exist, into a different number of securities of the same class, the Exercise Price for such securities shall be proportionately decreased in the case of a split or subdivision or proportionately increased in the case of a combination.
12.4 Adjustments for Dividends in Stock or Other Securities or Property. If while this Warrant, or any portion hereof, remains outstanding and unexpired the holders of the securities as to which purchase rights under this Warrant exist at the time shall have received, or, on or after the record date fixed for the determination of eligible stockholders, shall have become entitled to receive, without payment therefor, other or additional stock or other securities or property of the Company by way of dividend, then and in each case, this Warrant shall represent the right to acquire, in addition to the number of shares of the security receivable upon exercise of this Warrant, and without payment of any additional consideration therefor, the amount of such other or additional stock or other securities or property of the Company which such holder would hold on the date of such exercise had it been the holder of record of the security receivable upon exercise of this Warrant on the date of such distribution or such record date and had thereafter, during the period from the date of such distribution or such record date to and including the date of such exercise, retained such shares and/or all other additional stock available by it as aforesaid during such period, giving effect to all adjustments called for during such period by the provisions of this Section 12.
12.5 Certificate as to Adjustments. Upon the occurrence of each adjustment or readjustment pursuant to this Section 12, the Company at its expense shall promptly compute such adjustment or readjustment in accordance with the terms hereof and furnish to each holder of this Warrant a certificate setting forth such adjustment or readjustment and showing in detail the facts upon which such adjustment or readjustment is based. The Company shall, upon the written request, at any time, of any such holder, furnish or cause to be furnished to such holder a like certificate setting forth: (i) such adjustments and readjustments; (ii) the Exercise Price at the time in effect; and (iii) the number of Shares and the amount, if any, of other property which at the time would be received upon the exercise of the Warrant.
12.6 No Impairment. The Company will not, by any voluntary action, avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms to be observed or performed hereunder by the Company, but will at all times in good faith assist in the carrying out of all the provisions of this Section 12 and in the taking of all such action as may be necessary or appropriate in order to protect the rights of the holders of this Warrant against impairment.
Governing Law. This Warrant shall be governed by and construed under the laws of the State of California, excluding that body of law relating to conflict of laws.
Counterparts. This Warrant may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.
