|●||[ * ]|
|●||[ * ]|
|●||[ * ]|
|●||[ * ]|
to Seiko Epson’s production lines. The wafer prices for volume production of [ * ] wafers are as follows:
[ * ] Process
[ * ]
Base price[ * ]
Pricing: Pricing will be reviewed and mutually agreed to in writing on an annual basis.
|●||The above prices are the Wafer’s Base_Price and are based on an exchange rate of [ * ]. The fluctuation in foreign exchange rate, as supplied by the Wall Street Journal will be shared equally by each part as follows F/X_Base=[ * ]|
Initial F/X_RATE= [ * ]
Exchange rate adjustment program:
A new F/X_RATE is only established at the time of placing a PO for WAFERS if the Previous Month’s Average daily exchange rate is equal to or greater than [ * ] from the F/X_Base. The new F/X Rate will be set to the previous Month’s average exchange rate and will remain in effect for at least the month it was established.
The actual Purchase_Price for WAFERS, by WAFER TYPE, used at the time of order will be calculated by the following formula:
Purchase_Price = [ * ] * BASE_PRICE
Examples: For [ * ] WAFERS with a BASE PRICE of [ * ]
1. Nominal F/X Rate Example: F/X_Rate= in the range of [ * ]:
2. Higher F/X Rate Example: New F/X_RATE- [ * ]:
PURCHASE _PRICE= [ * ]
3. Lower F/X Rate Example: New F/X_RATE= [ * ]:
PURCHASE_PRICE= [ * ]
Additional terms for [ *] wafers
Base price[ * ] is applicable until the cumulative number of wafers purchased reaches [ * ]. Base price[ * ] is applicable after the cumulative number of wafers purchased exceeds [ * ].

The cost of the 3rd party implant service is [ * ] per implant batch of up to [ * ] wafers; in the event Power Integrations or Seiko Epson secure a lower cost service, the charge will be adjusted accordingly.
For Engineering wafers, until the first process is released to production, the price for each entry in the above table (i.e. the Base price) will be multiplied by [ * ]. After the first process is released to production, the Engineering price will be determined by multiplying the Purchase Price (according to the above formula) by [ * ].
