MMC may terminate the Collaboration Agreement at any time upon thirty (30) days prior written notice to the Company.

MMC’s rights to the Company’s XBAR® technology are exclusive for a period of 30 months, during which period the Company may not grant to any third party the right to develop, make, have made, use, sell, offer for sale or import any filter or resonator produced through the use of the XBAR® technology for use in mobile communication devices.
