Upon receipt of notification by either party of the introduction and practicing of any IMPROVEMENT by the other party, the receiving party shall have the option of reviewing on-hand documentation related to such IMPROVEMENT or visiting the manufacturing facility where such IMPROVEMENT has been incorporated, or both, to determine if it wants to request the provision of such IMPROVEMENT. To the extent possible and upon mutual agreement of the parties, visits to the manufacturing facility where the IMPROVEMENT was introduced and practiced shall be coordinated so as to occur only once for each party in any one quarter. IBM may request the provision of an AMD IMPROVEMENT through its Technical Coordinator in any quarter, but only once per quarter, during the TERM of the Agreement and during the next six (6) months thereafter. AMD may request the transfer of an IBM IMPROVEMENT through its Technical Coordinator in any quarter, but only once per quarter, during the TERM of the Agreement and during the next six (6) months thereafter, provided that such IBM IMPROVEMENT is currently practiced in production in manufacturing at the time of such request. After a party requests provision of an IMPROVEMENT, the requesting party shall be entitled to: one (1) additional visit during the quarter, in the case of an IBM IMPROVEMENT, to IBM's Microelectronics Division manufacturing facility where such IBM IMPROVEMENT is incorporated into manufacturing, or in the case of an AMD IMPROVEMENT to the FACILITIES, to view such IMPROVEMENT; and to receive up to eight (8) person-hours of technical assistance during that visit. To the extent possible and upon mutual agreement of the parties, only one visit to the providing party's manufacturing facility per AMD/IBM CONFIDENTIAL June 11, 1996 -21- quarter will be allowed to receive the IMPROVEMENT(S), and any technical assistance with respect to the IMPROVEMENT(S). Documentation with respect to the IMPROVEMENTS(S) will be provided to the receiving party during the visit or within thirty (30) days thereafter. The visiting party will coordinate all activities through the Technical Coordinators and will pay all of its own expenses incurred in connection with such visits. A visit, as used in this Section 4, shall mean a maximum of three (3) working days during which a maximum of seven (7) employees of the requesting party visit the provider's facilities. Additional visits to a party's facilities shall be provided only if mutually agreed to. Section 5 - Technical Assistance -------------------------------- 5.1 In addition to the technical assistance provided for in Section 4.1.2 regarding IMPROVEMENTS, during the period beginning on the EFFECTIVE DATE and [*[ thereafter, IBM shall provide to AMD limited technical assistance as specified in Appendix B and in this Section 5. 5.1.1 Such limited technical assistance shall only occur at (i) IBM's Burlington, Vermont and Bromont, Canada facilities, or (ii) AMD's wholly- owned Austin, Texas or Santa Clara County, California facility, if IBM agrees that travel to AMD's wholly-owned Austin, Texas or Sunnyvale, California facility is required, and at times agreeable to both parties. 5.1.2 That portion of the FACILITIES where the LICENSED TECHNOLOGY, or any portion thereof, is practiced shall have restricted access such that such portion of the FACILITIES is accessible only by AMD employees, the IBM Technical Coordinator or its designees, selected AMD customers with the approval of the IBM Technical Coordinator, and AMD's contractors providing maintenance, tooling, facilities AMD/IBM CONFIDENTIAL June 11, 1996 *CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION -22- services and manufacturing productivity improvements with the approval of the IBM Technical Coordinator. 5.1.3 The IBM and AMD technical coordinators shall keep accurate records of all limited technical assistance performed and shall compare records for accuracy and provide access to such records to the other party once a month or pursuant to a schedule mutually agreed to. 5.2 IBM will provide as part of limited technical assistance the identity of its vendors supplying equipment, materials (including [*], and services used in the practice of the LICENSED TECHNOLOGY, except for the MATERIALS provided in Section 3.3, so long as such identification does not breach any contractual obligation of IBM. In the event that IBM is unable to identify supplying vendors due to contractual obligations, IBM will work with AMD and such vendors with contractual obligations with the objective to allow for such identification to be made or attempt to identify alternate supplying vendors. IBM shall authorize, as determined solely by IBM but such authorization not to be unreasonably withheld, such vendors supplying equipment, materials, and services to AMD to use IBM Confidential Information, if needed, for supplying such equipment, materials, and services to AMD. AMD, at its own cost and expense, shall be responsible for acquiring the necessary equipment, materials, and services required to implement the LICENSED TECHNOLOGY. 5.3 During the [*] period specified in Section 5.1 IBM agrees to provide at no additional cost to AMD a maximum of [*] of assistance in the transfer of the LICENSED TECHNOLOGY to AMD and for technical assistance in connection therewith, with the limitation that IBM is required to provide a maximum of five (5) persons per week, or the equivalent thereof, in any one (1) week.

At IBM's request and expense, and upon ten (10) days written notice to AMD, AMD shall permit IBM or a mutually acceptable independent third party auditor to review all such documentation and accounting records. 6.5 The royalty of Section 6.3 shall accrue when a product is first sold, leased or otherwise disposed of. For the purpose of determining such royalty, products shall be considered sold, leased or otherwise disposed of when invoiced. If not invoiced, then products are to be considered sold, leased or otherwise disposed of when delivered or when paid for, if paid for before delivery. If not invoiced, delivered or paid for before delivery, products are to be considered sold, leased or otherwise disposed of at the earlier of when put into use or when possession is transferred to a third party or a RELATED COMPANY for the purpose of Section 2.1.5. 6.6 Accrued royalties shall be calculated on a calendar year basis. Any royalties due IBM for any calendar year shall be paid to IBM by February 15 after the immediately preceding calendar year. Any accrued royalties paid to IBM are nonrefundable. AMD may deduct from the accrued royalties calculation in this Section 6.7 those royalties accrued on products which have been returned to AMD or for which credit allowances have been made. 6.7 By February 15 of each year, AMD shall furnish to IBM a written statement showing the LICENSED PRODUCTS, and the BUMPS and ROYALTY-BEARING BUMPS for each of such LICENSED PRODUCTS, which were made, used, sold, leased and/or otherwise disposed of during the immediately preceding calendar year and the royalties payable AMD/IBM CONFIDENTIAL June 11, 1996 *CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION -26- thereon.

If no royalties are payable, that fact shall be shown on the statement. 6.9 AMD shall bear and pay, and indemnify and hold IBM harmless from any and all taxes (including, without limitation, sales, royalty, value added, and property taxes) imposed by any national government (including any political subdivision thereof) of any country, as the result of the existence of this Agreement or the exercise of rights hereunder, or arising from the purchase of goods and services hereunder, and IBM shall not be responsible for any taxes that arise from the foregoing. Notwithstanding the foregoing, AMD shall not be liable for any taxes or assessments based on the net income of IBM. 6.10 For the purposes of this Agreement, and to assist any taxing authority to determine the fair market value of the tangible property provided to AMD under this Agreement excluding Exhibit D hereof, IBM undertook to evaluate said fair market value for sales and use purposes only. IBM thereby assessed that included in the consideration for the LICENSED TECHNOLOGY payable under Section 6.1 is the amount of [*], which amount represents the fair market value of the tangible personal property provided to AMD in connection with this Agreement excluding Appendix D hereof. AMD/IBM CONFIDENTIAL June 11, 1996 *CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION -27- 6.10.1 IBM will notify AMD of any litigation against IBM dealing with sales or use taxes as a result of this Agreement within a reasonable period after the commencement of such action against IBM. IBM will seek any assistance of AMD as IBM deems reasonably necessary to defend against such action. AMD agrees to promptly provide such assistance at IBM's written request. If IBM decides not to contest such action, and IBM deems it appropriate to do so, IBM will grant to AMD the right to pursue, at AMD's cost, a separate action against any governmental entity which imposes any sales or use tax against IBM because of this Agreement. In such event, IBM agrees to provide reasonable assistance to AMD in connection with AMD's action at AMD's written request. 6.11 AMD shall be liable for interest on any and all overdue payments and royalties required to be made to IBM under this Agreement, commencing on the date such overdue payment or royalties become due, at an annual rate of [*] quoted by the head office of Citibank N.A., New York, at the close of banking on such date, or on the first business day thereafter if such date falls on a nonbusiness day.

VOLUMES: The following volume table represents AMD's planned volume of purchases of Foundry Services from IBM and IBM's capability to provide Foundry Services to AMD. In order for IBM to be able to support these volumes, AMD is required to provide the Dice/Sort/Pick equipment and the AMD TEST SYSTEM as specified in the body of Attachment D. Volume Table #1 [*] [*] Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Bumping Wafers [*] (K wafers) Dice/Sort/Pick [*] (K wafers) BA (K modules) [*] Test [*] (K wafers)
In the event that AMD owned tooling installed at IBM pursuant to this Appendix D is determined by IBM to be under utilized, then AMD may request, in accordance with the purchase order procedure in Section D6 of this Appendix D, that such tooling be loaded with additional Foundry Service volume provided IBM has the available support for the additional volume. All such AMD owned tooling shall be loaded with Product as a first priority. AMD/IBM CONFIDENTIAL June 11, 1996 *CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION -68- Additional Bumping and BA Foundry Service capacity may be installed by IBM, at AMD expense, using AMD owned tooling, under mutually agreed terms and conditions that support the additional Foundry Service volumes stated in Volume Table #2 below: Volume Table #2 [*] [*] Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Bumping Wafers [*] (K wafers) BA (K modules) [*]
[*] D3. PRICES: The prices for Foundry Services set forth below are effective for Foundry Services provided during the Foundry Period unless otherwise stated in this section. Bumping [*] per AMD Wafer during the Foundry Service Period Dice/Sort/Pick [*] per AMD Wafer during the Foundry Service Period BA Subject to AMD design and confirmed by RFQ. For reference, the 2/13/96 design point price is [*] Wafer Test Wafer Test will be provided by IBM using the AMD TEST SYSTEM (defined in D6.21 below) at a price of [*] per AMD Wafer, AMD/IBM CONFIDENTIAL June 11, 1996 *CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION -69- which assumes a throughput of [*] AMD Wafers per hour. AMD recognizes that throughput is directly dependent on AMD test patterns and IBM will adjust Wafer Test prices upwards in the event that throughput is less than [*] AMD Wafers per hour. AMD agrees to pay IBM a minimum of [*] per month, beginning with installation of the AMD TEST SYSTEM for Wafer Test services regardless of actual quantity of AMD Wafers tested. Said minimum charge of [*] per month will commence as specified in Section D6(21). AMD Wafers actually tested will be credited against the [*] minimum monthly charge at the Wafer Test price as defined in this paragraph. Wafer Test prior to AMD TEST SYSTEM availability will be considered as engineering hardware requirements and priced as such via RFQ. To support Dice/Sort/Pick, AMD will be required to purchase one (1) saw and one (1) pick tool. IBM will specify the tools to be purchased. AMD will purchase the tools and deliver them to IBM's Burlington, Vermont facility by year end 1996. IBM will install the tools in its Burlington, Vermont facility, at AMD's expense. D4. YIELD ASSUMPTION: For purposes of this Appendix D, Base Yields are defined as those process yields that are typically experienced by IBM for the specific Foundry Service operations identified below, and which IBM expects to experience when performing Foundry Services for AMD AMD/IBM CONFIDENTIAL June 11, 1996 *CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION -70- Wafers. If Actual Yields deviate from Base Yields, a price adjustment may be made as defined in Section D5.
Operation Actual Yield Definition Base Yields Yield (TM) = Bumping yield. Actual IBM [*] Burlington terminal metals yield in Bumping process. Yield (WT) = Wafer Test yield. 100% minus [*] the actual IBM Burlington wafer test yield loss related to mechanical handling damage during Wafer Test. Yield (DSP)= Dice/Sort/Pick yield. Actual IBM [*] Burlington Dice/Sort/Pick yield at wafer level. Yield (GPB)= Group B inspection yield. Actual IBM [*] Burlington Group B inspection yield at die level. Yield (BA) = BA yield. Actual IBM Bromont [*] identified BA yield at module level. IBM will define Base Yield (BA) after AMD chooses BA design point. IBM's current projection is [*] Yield (MT) = Module Test BA Yield. The yield loss, [*] of type 1 below, identified at AMD and being caused by BA, in excess of x%. The value for x will be defined by IBM after AMD chooses a BA design point. This yield loss will be limited to opens or shorts in the C4 interconnections. GCPW = Good chips per wafer. The average [*] number of good die per AMD Wafer identified at Wafer Test, as determined by AMD.
AMD/IBM CONFIDENTIAL June 11, 1996 *CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION -71- Where practical IBM will classify defect types that cause Actual Yield loss in three types: 1) caused by the Foundry Service process at IBM, 2) caused by or attributable to the AMD Wafer manufacturing process, and 3) cause could be either 1) or 2) above. D5. BILLING CALCULATION: IBM will invoice AMD for Foundry Services when Product is shipped FOB from IBM's designated dock to AMD. The billing calculation of shipped Product will be calculated using Base Yields, as follows: For each Foundry Service performed on a unit of Product, the applicable price [*]. The [*] shall be the price charged to AMD for each unit of Product. For example, AMD will be billed the following Foundry Service prices at shipment: (a) Assuming that IBM performed only Bumping Foundry Services, the price charged for each unit of Product would be as follows: [*] or [*] (b) Assuming that IBM performed Bumping and Wafer Test Foundry Services using the AMD TEST SYSTEM, the price charged for each unit of Product would be as follows: [*] or [*] (c) For Product shipped to AMD in module form for which IBM performed Bumping, Dice/Sort/Pick, Wafer Test and BA, the price for each unit of Product would be as follows: [*] AMD/IBM CONFIDENTIAL June 11, 1996 *CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION -72- Should AMD cancel or postpone Foundry Service activity on wafers, or die in process at IBM, IBM will return the incompletely processed wafers or die to AMD and bill AMD for the Foundry Service performed prior to the cancellation or postponement during the next billing cycle. Notwithstanding the foregoing, IBM reserves the right to submit a monthly adjustment, billing or credit for future Foundry Services, to reflect differences in excess of [*] between Base Yields and Actual Yields, including GCPW, achieved on Products. Additional charges to AMD hereunder will only occur when Actual Yield detractors are attributed to Type 2 and Type 3 causes, as described in Section D4. AMD may request credit for BA Foundry Service on future Foundry Services provided by IBM when the Yield (MT), averaged over a calendar quarter exceeds the loss allowed in Yield (MT) by [*]. D6.
