identified on Schedule A hereto (and as may be modified in the future by the
mutual agreement of the Parties), and any and all upgrades, retrofits,
modifications, and enhancements thereto, which Seller is to sell to Buyer as set
forth in this Agreement.

1.5 "LEAD-TIME" means no less than * * * calendar days from the date a Purchase
Order is issued for an Item to the date the Item is to be received by the Buyer

have in place at its expense those facilities, manufacturing and test equipment

<PAGE>
2.3 Services. During the Term, Seller agrees to exercise its commercially
reasonable best efforts to provide Services as required by Buyer consistent with
the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

2.4 Technical Assistance. Each Party agrees to provide the other with such
technical assistance reasonably necessary to facilitate the manufacture of Items
and/or the rendering of Services. Each Party shall bear and be solely
responsible for the fees and costs associated with such technical assistance.

ARTICLE 3. PRICING

3.1 Pricing. Prices for Items and Services are as set forth in Schedule C
hereto. It is understood that the Schedule C prices shall be reviewed by Buyer
and Seller every * * *.

3.2 Low Price Commitment. Throughout the term of this Agreement and any
extensions thereto, Seller warrants to Buyer that the Schedule C prices, in
conjunction with the discounts offered herein for any Item or equivalent
Service, reflect the Seller's lowest price charged any customer of Seller for
Items or Service of similar complexity and volume, regardless of any special
terms, conditions, rebates or allowances of any nature. If Seller sells any
comparable Item or provides equivalent Services to any other customer at a price
less than the price set forth in this Agreement or any addendum or amendment,
Seller shall adjust its price to the lower price for all future invoices for
such Item or Service and rebate to Buyer an amount equal to the difference in
the price paid by Buyer and the lower price for any invoices already paid by
Buyer for such Item or Service. In addition, Buyer may adjust the prices for any
Item or Service invoiced by Seller and unpaid by Buyer to reflect the lower
price. Each of the above adjustments and the rebate shall be calculated from the
date the Seller first sells the Item or Service at the lower price. In the event
the Seller offers a lower price either as a general price drop or to specific
customer(s) for any reason, Seller shall immediately notify Buyer of this price
and adjust Buyer's pricing to meet the new pricing structure.

3.3 Inspection Right. Buyer has the right, once each calendar quarter, to
appoint an independent third party of it's choice and it's expense, to inspect
and audit Seller's records to ensure compliance with this Agreement

3.3.1    Buyer shall disclose the auditor's report to Seller and, if Seller
         disagrees with the auditor's report for any reason, Seller shall have
         the right to issue a letter in response, which letter shall detail the
         specific reasons for Seller's disagreement and shall be provided to
         Buyer within twenty (20) days of receipt of the auditor's report.

3.3.2    If discrepancies are found during the audit and price adjustments are
         required to be paid by the Seller to the Buyer, Seller shall reimburse
         Buyer for all costs associated with the audit, along with a single
         payment or credit towards future orders covering the price adjustments
         within thirty (30) days after the completion of the audit. The results
         of such audit shall be kept confidential by the auditor and only
         Seller's failures to abide by the obligations of this Agreement, and
         the details of such failure(s), shall be reported to Buyer. In the
         event Seller reasonably and in good faith disputes the audit results
         consistent with Section 3.3.1, and the Parties are unable to agree as
         to the auditor's report, the procedures of Section 19.2 shall be
         implemented.

3.3.3    Seller will maintain complete and accurate records of the Services
         performed under this Agreement for a period of three (3) years after
         the completion of these Services. Records relating to the performance
         of this Agreement shall be made available to Buyer upon reasonable
         notice.

3.4 Taxes. Applicable taxes and other charges such as duties, customs, tariffs,
imposts, and government-imposed surcharges shall be paid for by Seller without
reimbursement from Buyer as part of the purchase price for Items and Services.
In the event that Buyer is prohibited by law from remitting payments to the
Seller unless Buyer deducts or withholds taxes therefrom on behalf of the local
taxing jurisdiction, then Buyer shall duly withhold such taxes and shall remit
the remaining net invoice amount to the Seller. Buyer shall not reimburse Seller
for the amount of such taxes withheld.

3.5 No Additional Costs. Additional costs, except those provided for herein or
specified in a Purchase Order, will not be reimbursed without Buyer's prior
written approval.

3.6 U.S. Dollars. All prices are in U.S. dollars and quoted delivered to the

identifying: (i) the Items to be purchased and consistent with Schedules A and
C, respectively; (ii) the Lead-time(s) for the Items; (iii) the date received at
the Delivery Point; and/or (iv) the Services requested, fee, and the timing for
the same.

4.2 Forecasts. By the tenth (10th) day of each month, Buyer shall supply to
Seller a forecast setting forth Buyer's anticipated purchases of Items in each
month for the proceeding * * * month period ("Rolling Forecast"). The Rolling
Forecast is provided to Seller for planning purposes only and neither
constitutes a firm commitment from Buyer to purchase a specific number of Items,
nor a Purchase Order. Buyer shall modify the Rolling Forecast in the event it
determines that it is not a reasonably accurate forecast of Buyer's anticipated
purchases of Items, but Buyer shall have no obligation to and may, at its sole
discretion, issue Purchase Orders under this Agreement. Buyer shall be
responsible only for Items or Services for which it has issued Purchase Orders
hereunder, subject to the provisions of Articles 5 and 6.

ARTICLE 5.  INVOICING AND PAYMENT.

5.1 Invoicing. Seller shall include an Item invoice ("Invoice") with every
shipment of Items or after rendering of Services, as the case may be, which
includes the following information: (i) list of Items shipped (or Services
rendered, including dates); (ii) a description consistent with any applicable
tariff schedule requirements; (iii) a statement of the country of origin of the
Items; (iv) the Item code/designation; (v) list of all U.S. Custom information;
(vi) the Item manufacturer information, including the identification of any
subcontractor; and (vii) unit prices.

5.2 Payments. All payments shall be Net * * * days from the receipt of Invoice,
Items, or Services, whichever is later. Any applicable taxes or other charges

ARTICLE 19.  MISCELLANEOUS

19.1 Choice of Law. This Agreement shall be governed by the law of the State of
California, United States of America, without regard to its conflict of law
principles.

19.2 Dispute Resolution. Except for claims regarding the infringement, validity
or scope of either Party's intellectual property rights, to which this Section
19.2 will not apply, the Parties shall endeavor to resolve disputes through the
procedures of Sections 19.2.1 and 19.2.2.

19.2.1   Each Party will make reasonable best efforts to resolve amicably any
         disputes or claims under this Agreement among the Parties. These
         efforts shall include the escalation to negotiations between senior
         officers or principals of the Parties ("Designated Executives"), in
         which case the disputing Party will give the other Party written notice
         of the nature of the dispute and proposed resolution. Within seven (7)
         days after receipt of such notice, the responding Party shall submit a
         written response, and counter resolution. The Designated Executives
         shall then meet at a mutually acceptable time and place (or San
         Francisco, California, if no such place can be agreed upon) within ten
         (10) business days of the date of the responding Party's response, to
         conduct good faith negotiations to resolve amicably the dispute. If the
         matter has not been resolved pursuant to the aforesaid negotiation
         procedure within thirty (30) days, the matter will be resolved pursuant
         to Section 19.2.2, below.

19.2.2   Except for claims regarding the infringement, validity or scope of
         either Party's Patent Rights, to which this Section will not apply, in
         the event that a resolution is not reached among the Parties within
         thirty (30) days after written notice by any Party of the dispute or
         claims through the procedures of Section 19.2.1, the dispute or claim
         shall be finally settled by binding arbitration in San Francisco,
         California, in accordance with the then in effect Commercial Dispute
         Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"). The arbitration
         shall be administered out of the local San Francisco Office of the AAA.
         Three (3) arbitrators shall be appointed in accordance with the AAA
         rules. Depositions may be taken and discovery may be obtained, subject
         to time period restrictions set by the arbitrator; the arbitrator will
         give active, attentive case management to the scope, form, cost
         effectiveness and scheduling of all discovery. Notwithstanding the
         foregoing, it is agreed that the arbitral proceedings will be conducted
         in such a manner that the substantive merit of the Claim is


                                       13

<PAGE>

         ruled upon by the arbitrator within sixty (60) days after the selection
         of the arbitrator. In the event of any conflict between the Rules of
         the AAA, the provisions of this Section will govern. In any arbitral
         proceeding under this paragraph, each Party will bear its own
         attorneys' fees and expenses; except that the losing Party will bear
         the reasonable costs and expenses of the prevailing Party, and the
         costs and expenses of the arbitrator, in connection with such
         proceedings. The award of arbitration shall be final and binding upon
         both Parties, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may
         be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Any monetary award
         shall be payable in United States dollars.

19.3 Injunctive Relief and Infringement Claims. Each of the Parties acknowledges
that unauthorized disclosure or use of the other Party's Confidential
Information or infringement or misappropriation of the other Party's
intellectual property rights could cause irreparable harm and significant injury
that would be difficult to ascertain and may not be compensable by damages
alone. Accordingly, the Parties agree that, in addition to any and all legal
remedies, claims regarding: (i) intellectual property rights; (ii) Confidential
Information; or (iii) a violation of the obligations of Section 4.6, may be
remedied by specific performance, injunction or other appropriate equitable
relief. For all claims regarding the infringement, validity or scope of either
Party's intellectual property rights, such claims shall be brought before and
take place in the U.S. Federal Courts in and for the Northern District of
California, except for any claim based upon a complaint filed with the
International Trade Commission under Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930.

19.4 Assignment. Neither Party may assign any or all of its rights and/or
obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other
Party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Buyer may assign its rights and
obligations under this Agreement: (i) to a Subsidiary; or (ii) in connection
with a merger, reorganization or sale of all or substantially all of Buyer's
assets which relate to the business pertinent to the license under this
Agreement. Any assignment permitted hereunder will be subject to the written
consent of the assignee to all of the terms and provisions of this Agreement.
Any attempted assignment in derogation of this Section 19.4 will be null and
void.

19.5 Modification and Waiver. No modification to this Agreement, nor any waiver
of any rights, will be effective unless assented to in writing by the Party to
be charged, and the waiver of any breach or default shall not constitute a
waiver of any other right hereunder or any subsequent breach or default.

19.6 Force Majeure. Neither Party shall be responsible for delay or failure in
performance caused by any government act, law, regulation, order or decree, by
communication line or power failures beyond its control, or by fire, flood or
other natural disasters or by other causes beyond its reasonable control, nor
shall any such delay or failure be considered to be a breach of this Agreement.
In any such event, performance shall take place as soon thereafter as is
reasonably feasible. If delivery of Items or the performance of Services is to
be delayed by such contingencies, Seller shall immediately notify Buyer in
writing. If the delay is greater than fourteen (14) days from the date of the
notice, Buyer will have the option, in its sole discretion, to either (i) extend
time of delivery or performance, or (ii) terminate the uncompleted portion of
the order at no cost of any nature to Buyer.

19.7 Independent Contractors. In performing their respective duties under this
Agreement, each of the Parties will be operating as an independent contractor.
Nothing contained herein will in any way constitute any association,
partnership, or joint venture between the Parties hereto, or be construed to
evidence the intention of the Parties to establish any such relationship. Seller
shall be responsible for any withholding taxes, payroll taxes, disability
insurance payments, unemployment taxes and other similar taxes or charges on the
payments received by Seller hereunder. Absent the other Party's prior written
consent, neither Party has any right or authority to assume or create any
obligations of any kind or to make any representation or warranty on behalf of
the other Party, whether express or implied, or to bind the other Party in any
respect whatsoever.

19.8 Severability. In the event that it is determined by a court of competent
jurisdiction or under arbitration under Section 19.2 that any provision of this
Agreement is invalid, illegal, or otherwise unenforceable, such provision will
be enforced as nearly as possible in accordance with the stated intention of the
Parties, while the remainder of this Agreement will remain in full force and
effect and bind the Parties according to its terms. To the extent any provision
cannot be enforced in accordance with the stated intentions of the Parties, such
provisions will be deemed not to be a part of this Agreement.

19.9 Headings. The headings of the Sections of this Agreement are for
convenience only and will not be of any effect in construing the meanings of the
Sections.

19.10 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in multiple counterparts,
each of which will be deemed an original, but all of which together will
constitute one and the same instrument.

19.11 Entire Agreement. This Agreement, the Schedules (including these Terms and
Conditions) attached hereto, and the CNDA referenced on the executed cover page,
constitute the entire and exclusive agreement between the Parties hereto with
respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede any prior agreements between
the Parties with respect to such subject matter.

19.12 Specific Performance. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained
in this Agreement, the parties agree that the failure of the Seller to deliver
an Item or perform a Service in accordance with the terms and conditions
contained in this Agreement after the acceptance of a Purchase Order would cause
irreparable damage to Buyer for which monetary damages would not provide an
adequate remedy. Accordingly, it is agreed that, in addition to any other remedy
to which Buyer may be entitled, at law or in equity, Buyer shall be entitled to
injunctive relief to prevent breaches of the provisions of this Agreement by
Seller, and an order of specific performance to compel performance of such
obligations in any action instituted in any court of the United States or any
state thereof having subject matter jurisdiction.

19.13 Survival. The rights and obligations of the parties as contained in
Sections 8, 11 - 14 and 16-19 shall survive the termination or expiration of
this Agreement along with any other right or legal obligation of a party created
by a term or condition in any Addendum or Product Specification, which term or
condition by its nature would survive the termination or expiration of the
Agreement.

ARTICLE 18.  NEW DEVELOPMENTS.

18.1 Services. If development Services are to be provided pursuant to this
Agreement or if at any time during the term of this Agreement, Buyer pays any
fee to the Seller for development Services, the following terms and conditions

18.1.1   All intellectual property associated with any ideas, concepts,
         techniques, inventions, processes, or works of authorship developed,
         created or conceived by Seller, its employees, subcontractors or agents
         while performing the development Services for Buyer or from proprietary
         and/or confidential information or materials belonging to Buyer
         (collectively, "Developments") shall belong exclusively to Buyer and be
         deemed the confidential information of Buyer. Seller agrees to assign

         exclusive ownership of any invention, improvement, development,
         concept, discovery, or other proprietary information owned by Seller or

         foregoing, Seller agrees that if in the course of performing the
         Services, Seller incorporates any Seller IP into any Development
         developed hereunder, Buyer is hereby granted and shall have a
         nonexclusive, royalty free, perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide license,

         execution of applications, specifications, oaths and assignments and
         any other papers by Seller necessary to ensure said protection for
         Buyer. Upon Buyer's request, Seller shall execute an Assignment of
         Copyright to Buyer covering any copyrightable deliverable accepted by
         Buyer hereunder.

19.2.1   Each Party will make reasonable best efforts to resolve amicably any
         disputes or claims under this Agreement among the Parties. These
         efforts shall include the escalation to negotiations between senior
         officers or principals of the Parties ("Designated Executives"), in
         which case the disputing Party will give the other Party written notice
         of the nature of the dispute and proposed resolution. Within seven (7)
         days after receipt of such notice, the responding Party shall submit a
         written response, and counter resolution. The Designated Executives
         shall then meet at a mutually acceptable time and place (or San
         Francisco, California, if no such place can be agreed upon) within ten
         (10) business days of the date of the responding Party's response, to
         conduct good faith negotiations to resolve amicably the dispute. If the
         matter has not been resolved pursuant to the aforesaid negotiation
         procedure within thirty (30) days, the matter will be resolved pursuant
         to Section 19.2.2, below.

19.2.2   Except for claims regarding the infringement, validity or scope of
         either Party's Patent Rights, to which this Section will not apply, in
         the event that a resolution is not reached among the Parties within
         thirty (30) days after written notice by any Party of the dispute or
         claims through the procedures of Section 19.2.1, the dispute or claim
         shall be finally settled by binding arbitration in San Francisco,
         California, in accordance with the then in effect Commercial Dispute
         Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"). The arbitration
         shall be administered out of the local San Francisco Office of the AAA.
         Three (3) arbitrators shall be appointed in accordance with the AAA
         rules. Depositions may be taken and discovery may be obtained, subject
         to time period restrictions set by the arbitrator; the arbitrator will
         give active, attentive case management to the scope, form, cost
         effectiveness and scheduling of all discovery. Notwithstanding the
         foregoing, it is agreed that the arbitral proceedings will be conducted
         in such a manner that the substantive merit of the Claim is ruled upon
         by the arbitrator within sixty (60) days after the selection of the
         arbitrator. In the event of any conflict between the Rules of the AAA,
         the provisions of this Section will govern. In any arbitral proceeding
         under this paragraph, each Party will bear its own attorneys' fees and
         expenses; except that the losing Party will bear the reasonable costs
         and expenses of the prevailing Party, and the costs and expenses of the
         arbitrator, in connection with such proceedings. The award of
         arbitration shall be final and binding upon both Parties, and judgment
         on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court
         having jurisdiction thereof. Any monetary award shall be payable in
         United States dollars.

19.3 Injunctive Relief and Infringement Claims. Each of the Parties acknowledges
that unauthorized disclosure or use of the other Party's Confidential
Information or infringement or misappropriation of the other Party's
intellectual property rights could cause irreparable harm and significant injury
that would be difficult to ascertain and may not be compensable by damages
alone. Accordingly, the Parties agree that, in addition to any and all legal
remedies, claims regarding: (i) Intellectual Property Rights, including Patent
Rights; (ii) Confidential Information; or (iii) a violation of the obligations
of Section(no section 4.6), may be remedied by specific performance, injunction
or other appropriate equitable relief. For all claims regarding the
infringement, validity or scope of either Party's Patent Rights, such claims
shall be brought before and take place in the U.S. Federal Courts in and for the
Northern District of California, except for any claim based upon a complaint
filed with the International Trade Commission under Section 337 of the Tariff
Act of 1930.

19.4 Assignment. Neither Party may assign any or all of its rights and/or
obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other
Party which will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Notwithstanding the
foregoing, Seller or Buyer may assign its rights and obligations under this
Agreement: (i) to a Subsidiary; or (ii) in connection with a merger,
reorganization or sale of all or substantially all of Seller or Buyer's assets
which relate to the business pertinent to the license under this Agreement. Any
assignment permitted hereunder will be subject to the written consent of the
assignee to all of the terms and provisions of this Agreement. Any attempted
assignment in derogation of this Section 19.4 will be null and void.

19.5 Modification and Waiver. Any delay of failure by Buyer to pursue any and
all of its remedies upon a breach by Seller, or to insist upon Seller's
performance of any provision of this Agreement, shall not be construed as a
waiver of Buyer's rights under the terms and conditions outlined herein and/or
of applicable state law. No modification to this Agreement, nor any waiver of
any rights, will be effective unless assented to in writing by the Party to be
charged, and the waiver of any breach or default shall not constitute a waiver
of any other right hereunder or any subsequent breach or default.

19.6 Force Majeure. Neither Party shall be liable for delay or failure in
performance, in whole or in part, caused by any government act, law, regulation,
order or decree, war (whether an actual declaration thereof is made or not),
sabotage, insurrection, riot or other act of civil disobedience, act of public
enemy, power failures, or by fire, flood or other natural disasters or by other
causes beyond its reasonable control, nor shall any such delay or failure be
considered to be a breach of this Agreement. In any such event, performance
shall take place as soon thereafter as is reasonably feasible. If delivery of
Items or the performance of Services is to be delayed by such contingencies,
Seller shall immediately notify Buyer in writing. If the delay is greater than
fourteen (14) days from the date of the notice, Buyer will have the option, in
its sole discretion, to either (i) extend time of delivery or performance, or
(ii) terminate the uncompleted portion of the order at no cost of any nature to
Buyer.

19.7 Independent Contractors. In performing their respective duties under this
Agreement, each of the Parties will be operating as an independent contractor.
Nothing contained herein will in any way constitute any association,
partnership, or joint venture between the Parties hereto, or be construed to
evidence the intention of the Parties to establish any such relationship. Seller
shall be responsible for any withholding taxes, payroll taxes, disability
insurance payments, unemployment taxes and other similar taxes or charges on the
payments received by Seller hereunder. Absent the other Party's prior written
consent, neither Party has any right or authority to assume or create any
obligations of any kind or to make any representation or warranty on behalf of
the other Party, whether express or implied, or to bind the other Party in any
respect whatsoever.

19.8 Severability. In the event that it is determined by a court of competent
jurisdiction or under arbitration under Section 19.2 that any provision of this
Agreement is invalid, illegal, or otherwise unenforceable, such provision will
be enforced as nearly as possible in accordance with the stated intention of the
Parties, while the remainder of this Agreement will remain in full force and
effect and bind the Parties according to its terms. To the extent any provision
cannot be enforced in accordance with the stated intentions of the Parties, such
provisions will be deemed not to be a part of this Agreement.

19.9 Headings. The headings of the Sections of this Agreement are for
convenience only and will not be of any effect in construing the meanings of the
Sections.

19.10 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in multiple counterparts,
each of which will be deemed an original, but all of which together will
constitute one and the same instrument.

19.11 Entire Agreement. This Agreement, the Schedules (including these Terms and
Conditions) attached hereto, and the CNDA referenced on the executed cover page,
constitute the entire and exclusive agreement between the Parties hereto with
respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede any prior agreements between
the Parties with respect to such subject matter.

19.12 Specific Performance. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained
in this Agreement, the parties agree that the failure of the Seller to deliver
an Item or perform a Service in accordance with the terms and conditions
contained in this Agreement after the acceptance of a Purchase Order would cause
irreparable damage to Buyer for which monetary damages would not provide an
adequate remedy. Accordingly, it is agreed that, in addition to any other remedy
to which Buyer may be entitled, at law or in equity, Buyer shall be entitled to
injunctive relief to prevent


FormFactor Confidential                16

<PAGE>

breaches of the provisions of this Agreement by Seller, and an order of specific
performance to compel performance of such obligations in any action instituted
in any court of the United States or any state thereof having subject matter
jurisdiction.

19.13 Survival. The rights and obligations of the parties as contained in
Sections 8, 11 - 14 and 16-19 shall survive the termination or expiration of
this Agreement along with any other right or legal obligation of a party created
by a term or condition in any Addendum or Product Specification, which term or
condition by its nature would survive the termination or expiration of the
Agreement.

19.14 Notice. All notices and other communication required or permitted in
connection with this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be sent to a party
at its addres set forth on the first page of this Agreement, or to such address
as may be specified in writing, by first class mail, postage prepaid, by
facsimile transmission or by overnight courier.

enemy, power failures, or by fire, flood or other natural disasters or by other
causes beyond its reasonable control, nor shall any such delay or failure be
considered to be a breach of this Agreement. In any such event, performance
shall take place as soon thereafter as is reasonably feasible. If delivery of
Items or the performance of Services is to be delayed by such contingencies,
Seller shall immediately notify Buyer in writing. If the delay is greater than
fourteen (14) days from the date of the notice, Buyer will have the option, in
its sole discretion, to either (i) extend time of delivery or performance, or
