agrees that any business and technical information provided to the receiving
party by the other party (the "disclosing party") hereunder constitutes the
confidential and proprietary information of the disclosing party, and that the
receiving party's protection thereof is essential to this Agreement and a
condition to the receiving party's use and possession thereof.  The receiving
party shall retain in strict confidence and not disclose to any third party
(except as authorized by this Agreement) without the disclosing party's express
written consent, any and all such information.  CSC acknowledges and agrees that
the VTB Software is confidential and proprietary information of SDI.

     5.2  EXCEPTIONS.  The receiving party shall be relieved of this obligation
of confidentiality to the extent any such information:

          (i)   was in the public domain at the time it was disclosed or has

     approval of the disclosing party;

     information; or

          (v)   becomes known to the receiving party, without restriction,
     from a source other than the disclosing party without breach of this
     Agreement by the receiving party and otherwise not in violation of the
     disclosing party's rights.

Agreement or another written agreement between CSC and SDI, CSC shall not under

access by any individual to any of the disclosing party's confidential
information, shall enter into a confidentiality agreement with each such
individual which (i) incorporates the protections and restrictions set forth
herein for the disclosing party's confidential information; (ii) provides that
the individual's obligations with respect to the disclosing party's confidential

threaten irreparable harm to the disclosing party, and, accordingly, the
receiving party agrees that in the event of such breach the disclosing party
shall be entitled to seek equitable relief to protect its interest therein,
including but not limited to preliminary and permanent injunctive relief, as

rights of any third party; provided, however, that SDI's obligations under
Section 7 shall be CSC's sole remedy for any breach of this warranty; and (iii)
SDI has the full power to enter into this Agreement, to carry out its
obligations under this Agreement and to grant the rights and licenses granted to
CSC in this Agreement.

     6.2  PRODUCT WARRANTY.  SDI warrants the VTB Software under the warranty

                                   Section 7

     7.1  INDEMNIFICATION BY SDI.  SDI agrees to indemnify, defend and hold
harmless CSC, its affiliates, and their respective officers, directors,
employees, distributors, agents, successors and assigns from and against any and
all loss, damage, settlement or expense (including reasonable legal expenses),
as incurred, resulting from or arising out of any claims which allege that the
VTB Software or the use or sale thereof infringe upon, misappropriate or violate
any patents, copyrights, or trade secret rights or other proprietary rights of
persons, firms or entities who are not parties to this Agreement; provided that
CSC (i) promptly notifies SDI, in writing, of any notice or claim of such
alleged infringement or misappropriation involving the VTB Software of which it
becomes aware; (ii) permits SDI to control, the defense, settlement, adjustment
or compromise of any such claim; (iii) the claim does not result from
modification of the VTB Software which modification is not authorized by SDI;
and (iv) the claim does not result from the combination of the VTB Software with
software or equipment not provided by SDI if the VTB Software alone would not be
the subject of the claim.  CSC may employ counsel, at its own expense (provided
that if such counsel is necessary because SDI does not assume control, SDI will
bear such expense), to assist it with respect to any such claim.  CSC shall have
no authority to settle any claim on behalf of SDI.

     7.2  INJUNCTION.  If by reason of such infringement claim, CSC or its
customers shall be prevented or are likely to be prevented by legal means from
selling or using any VTB Software, or if, in SDI's opinion, such claim is likely
to occur, SDI will use its commercially reasonable efforts, at its

expense, to: (i) obtain all rights required to permit the sale or use of the VTB
Software by CSC; or (ii) modify or replace such VTB Software to make then non-
infringing (and extend this indemnity thereof), provided that any such
replacement or modified VTB is functionally equivalent to the VTB Software.  If
SDI is unable to achieve either of the options set forth above within a
reasonable period of time after the issuance of the injunction, or reasonably
believes that an injunction will issue and that such options cannot be achieved
within a reasonable period of time, then neither party will sell or distribute
the VTB Software in accordance with the terms of such injunction-or SDI's
reasonable instructions.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, all payments due from
CSC hereunder shall be paid whether or not the VTB Software may be used, sold or
distributed by any of the parties under such injunction or instructions of SDI.
This Section 7 states SDI's entire obligation with respect to claims that the
VTB Software or any rights therein infringe or misappropriate the rights of any
third party.

                                   Section 8
                            CSC WAVEBRIDGE PRODUCTS

     CSC agrees to sell CSC Wavebridge products to SDT's customers who have
purchased VTB Software from SDI.  Upon CSC's approval, subject to SDI executing
CSC's standard Sales Representative Agreement, SDI may solicit orders from its
VTB Software customers for CSC Wavebridge products, in which case CSC shall pay
to SDI a commission of forty percent (40%) of the amount received from CSC under
such sale.

                                   Section 9
                            LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

-10- SCHEDULE A CSC PRODUCTS VISTA/DUO SERIES TESTERS SC SERIES TESTERS SCHEDULE B VTB SOFTWARE VISUAL TESTBENCH COMPONENTS Visual Testbench consists of modified Visual HDL for Verilog and VHDL, Visual IF Testbench harness code, Visual HDL simulation interface, various internal TDS routines, WDB input/output routines and Visual Testbench on-line documentation. For customer delivery these source code modules are compiled to a single Visual Testbench binary executable module. A Testbench is created using the Visual HDL Flow chart editor, Block diagram editor and Waveform/Timing diagram editor. The Testbench is connected to the simulated circuit using the Visual HDL Block Diagram editor and the Visual Testbench Launch editor. The Testbench harness is compiled with the customer's simulator and design as to stimulate and examine the circuit under investigation. The Testbench harness reads and writes TSSI WDB databases through binary linkable library functions. The examples include Visual HDL databases and Verilog or VHDL codes sufficient to demonstrate basic and advanced product operation. The examples are operational and will produce legitimate WDB output. DOCUMENTATION Visual Testbench documentation consists of a binary file in Framemaker mif format describing theory of operation, external controls, and function call interface of the product. The mif file is interpreted by a view for run time viewing of the test.
