This Agreement, effective as of September 30, 2009 ("Effective Date"), is made and entered into by and between QuaTech, Inc., ("QUATECH"), an Ohio Corporation with its principal place of business at 5675 Hudson Industrial Parkway, Hudson, Ohio 44236 and Socket Mobile, Inc. ("SOCKET"), a Delaware Corporation, having its principal place of business at 39700 Eureka Drive, Newark, California 94560, collectively hereafter referred to as the "Parties". QUATECH is a wholly owned subsidiary of DPAC Technologies Corp., a California Corporation, located at 5675 Hudson Industrial Parkway, Hudson, Ohio 44236.
WHEREAS SOCKET is selling to QUATECH the designs, engineering specifications and related documentation, software drivers and exclusive marketing rights for its serial products under an Asset Purchase Agreement dated September 30, 2009 ("Purchase Agreement");
WHEREAS the sale of the serial products to QUATECH includes the right for QUATECH to manufacture or have manufactured the serial products. In connection with this right, QUATECH and SOCKET have agreed for QUATECH to purchase SOCKET's HIS3 chip from SOCKET under this Agreement;
WHEREAS the serial products being sold to QUATECH include SOCKET'S Cordless Serial Adapter ("CSA"), QUATECH and SOCKET have agreed the purchase of the CSA only includes the design implementation currently being marketed and sold along with SOCKET's serial products and SOCKET shall license to QUATECH hereunder SOCKET'S firmware implemented within the CSA that provides Bluetooth functionality along with the CSA's Configuration Utilities.
NOW THEREFORE in consideration for the mutual covenants and obligations set forth herein, the parties hereby agree as follows:
The term of this Agreement shall commence on the Effective Date and shall terminate ten (10) years after such date, unless otherwise terminated or canceled by either party as provided herein. This Agreement shall automatically renew for additional one (1) year terms unless one of the Parties notifies the other in writing that it does not desire to renew the Agreement at least sixty (60) days prior to the expiration date.
HIS3 Chip The HIS3 chip is an interface chip owned and manufactured by SOCKET and used in SOCKET products including its serial products as more fully described in Appendix A. This Agreement enables QUATECH to purchase the HIS3 Chip from Socket for use in all QUATECH products (including but not limited to the CSA)("QUATECH Products").
Socket Bluetooth BlueLab Application Code and Configurator Utilities ("Software"). The Bluetooth BlueLab Application Code is the Bluetooth firmware that runs embedded within the CSA. The Configurator Utilities are used on a desktop or notebook computer to configure the BlueLab Application Code firmware when the CSA is plugged into a desktop or notebook. The Software is described in more detail in Appendix B. This Agreement licenses QUATECH to distribute this Software with the CSA purchased under the Purchase Agreement.
CSA Product. A limited quantity of the Cordless Serial Adapter product is available due to the end of life status of the BC02 Bluetooth chip designed into this product. SOCKET has manufactured and holds in its inventory approximately 1,700 CSA units. SOCKET agrees to hold these units for purchase by QUATECH, and QUATECH agrees to purchase these units no later than March 31, 2010 at SOCKET's cost of $35.24 per unit. In addition, SOCKET has in its inventory approximately 2,100 BC02 modules at a cost of $15.65 per unit which have been removed from SOCKET's price lists as an end of life product. These modules represent the likely last available supply that could be used to build additional CSA products. QUATECH agrees to advise SOCKET no later than November 30, 2009 whether QUATECH will commit to a) purchase some or all of these modules or b) instruct SOCKET to build additional CSA products with these modules that QUATECH will commit to purchase and which SOCKET agrees to build if so ordered by QUATECH.. After November 30, 2009 or upon being advised by QUATECH that some or all of the BCO2 modules are not needed, SOCKET has the right to dispose of any BC02 modules not needed by QUATECH.

HIS3 CHIP DATA SHEET
(Appendix B continued on next page)
APPENDIX B (Continued)
HIS3 CHIP DATA SHEET
Dual Serial Ports Interfaced to CF/PC Card Bus
The mobilityIC Dual Port or HIS3
is a single chip implementation of two serial ports interfaced to the PC Card
or CF buses. A complete PC Card or CF dual serial port peripheral can be built
with a mobilityIC dual port, a crystal, an EEPROM and two serial transceiver
chips. Such a design
offers PC Card/CF compliance, high performance, low power consumption and minimum component count. The HIS3 is designed to provide all the functions necessary for a universal receiver transmitter subsystem interface, such as for WAN cards (GPRS, CDMA, EDGE, UMTS) and GPS. The HIS3 uses a 16C550 compliant core with an expanded 512-byte deep receiver
first-in-first-out (FIFO) memory and 512-byte deep transmitter FIFO memory. The deep FIFOs reduce the CPU overhead and allow higher data rates. The HIS3 contains two high performance UARTs offering data rates up to 6.0 Mbps each. The HIS3 connects directly to a serial EEPROM to store nonvolatile information which consists of the PC Card/CF tuples and initial configuration information. Attribute memory consists of a 248-byte Card Information Structure (CIS), a 16-
byte initialization area, and 15 Configuration Registers.
The HIS3 keeps power consumption
to a minimum by providing features such as fully programmable clock division
and sleep modes when a function is not being used. The HIS3 can operate at either
3.3 or 5 volts and does not require external regulation to operate in low or
high voltage environments. Technology examples include standard or high speed
serial ports, bar code
scanners, high-speed radios (GPRS, CDMA, EDGE, UMTS), RFID readers, blood analyzers, etc.
The HIS3 design is extremely flexible
and can be incorporated into:
FORM OF ESCROW AGREEMENT
(To be attached)
Limited Hardware Warranty
Socket Mobile, Inc. warrants the HIS3 chip against defects in material and workmanship, under normal use and service, for 15 months from the date of purchase. The warranty does not extend to damage caused by a manufacturing process of soldering chips to an electronic board.
Incompatibility is not a defect covered by Socket's warranty. During the warranty period, Socket will, at its option, repair or replace defective chips at no charge.
Socket will replace or repair the product with new parts and the returned product becomes Socket's property. Socket warrants the repaired or replaced products to be free from defects in material or workmanship for ninety (90) days after the return shipping date, or for the duration of the original warranty period, whichever is greater.
This warranty does not cover the replacement of products damaged by abuse, accident, misuse or misapplication, nor as a result of service or modification other than by Socket.
SOCKET IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM BREACH OF ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY, INCLUDING DAMAGE TO PROPERTY AND, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, DAMAGES FOR PERSONAL INJURY. THIS WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
Some states do not allow limitation of implied warranties, or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights that vary from state to state. This product may contain fully tested, recycled parts, warranted as if new. For warranty information, call +1 (510) 744-2700.
PRODUCT DISPOSAL: The HIS3 chips should not be placed in municipal waste. Please check local regulations for disposal of electronic products.
