License Grant
Licensor grants to Licensee an exclusive license with respect to Liquid Polymer Material and SurgeTape, both within the Territory, and both to use (i) the Licensed Intellectual Property Rights; and (ii) the Technical Information, solely to manufacture, use, and sell these as Licensed Products provided, however, that, except as provided in the Agreement, Licensee shall have no right to manufacture the Liquid Polymer Material and SurgeTape unless the parties enter into a trade secret agreement permitting manufacture of the Liquid Polymer Material or SurgeTape by Licensee.
License Property
Liquid Polymer Material means a polymeric provided in a solvated liquid form that can be used to provide electrical overstress (EOS) or electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection for integrated circuits (IC’s).  The Liquid Polymer Material can be applied between signal lines and the ground plane of an electrical board assembly, a connector and other applications where it can be positioned between signal lines and ground.  The Liquid Polymer Material has a high impedance, and low leakage state during normal circuit operation.  During an EOS or an ESD event, the Liquid Polymer Material has a low impedance state that shunts the offending charge to the ground plane.  The capacitance of the devices using Liquid Polymer Material is typically less than I picofarad.  The mechanical flexibility and the semiconducting characteristics of the Liquid Polymer Material allow for a wide variety of packaging concepts, including arrays in which a common ground is used with multiple signal lines.  

SurgeTape means a flexible film of proprietary polymer-based material that can be applied between signal lines and a ground plane that has a high impedance and low leakage state during normal circuit operation.  During an electrical overstress (EOS) or electrostatic discharge (ESD) event, the polymer has a low impedance state that shunts the offending charge to the ground plane.

Licensed Intellectual Property Rights shall mean, solely with respect to Licensed Products, Licensor’s interest in any patents, patent applications, inventions, the SurgX trademark, the SurgeTape trademark, Technical Information, and copyrights owned.

Licensed Marks shall mean solely the trademark SurgX' and the trademark SurgeTape(Trademark).

Field of Use
The term Licensed Products may include Discrete products to be mounted on printed circuit boards for the purpose of providing ESD protection, which discrete products are manufactured by depositing Liquid Polymer Material on a rigid substrate such as a FR-4 printed circuit board or a ceramic substrate.  Examples of such discrete products include 1206, 0805, 0603 surface mount packages and board mounted network array packages. Such discrete products shall also include discrete arrays for placement on or in connectors such as RJ, D-subminiature and other connectors.

The Intragene-TM- process facilitates the ability to metallize, solder or braze a wide range of engineering ceramics, graphite and refractory metals.

The materials division product line consists of Intragene-TM–based sputtering target assemblies and electromagnet systems. The sputtering target assemblies have been sold into the rigid disk market since 1986 and are considered one of the most reliable such assemblies in the market today. Sputtering target assemblies are sold to end-users as source materials for coating other materials via a vacuum-based process called sputtering. Sputtering is employed as the primary method for depositing thin film functional and protective layers on rigid magnetic media (hard disks), as well as in many semiconductor-manufacturing operations. Once a target is made, it must usually be incorporated into the sputtering apparatus by joining it to a backing plate to make sound electrical, thermal and mechanical contact. The bonding of a target to the backing plate, which is usually made of copper, forms what is known as the 'bonded target assembly.'

Field of Use
This agreement pertains to the chemical industry relating to the coating technology.

—  an exclusive license under Licensed Patents to make, have made, use, sell and import PolyFluorene Based Materials in any and all countries of the world. This license includes process technology relating to the Suzuki Coupling reaction;

—  a non-exclusive license under Licensed Patents for all process technology relating to the Suzuki coupling reaction for use in making materials other than PolyFluorene Based Materials in any and all countries of the world;

—  a non-exclusive license under Licensor Patents to make, have made, use, sell and import PF Ink Jet Formulations in any and all countries of the world, provided that such Intellectual Property is wholly-owned and free to be licensed as of the date of this Agreement, or for later made inventions, as of the date of the invention;

—  a non-exclusive license under Licensors intellectual property to make test devices for screening and developing new materials.

License Property
Licensor has the right to grant licenses under certain patents and Know-how relating to polyfluorene-based materials.

LEP means light emitting polymer relating to large molecule organic electroluminescent material.

Polyfluorene-Based Material means Polyfluorenes;  solid compositions containing Polyfluorenes in an amount of at least 1% by weight; and solutions containing Polyfluorenes not including formulations for ink jetting.

PF Ink Jet Formulations Means solutions containing Polyfluorenes for ink jet application.

Field of Use
The Parties are developing polymers for use in LEP displays, which are organic light-emitting displays (OLEDs).
OLED displays are expected to be deployed in instrument panels and portable electronics such as mobile phones and personal digital assistants, and eventually larger displays for personal computers and consumer products, where they could overtake liquid-crystal display (LCD) technology in the future.

As an emissive display, LEPs need no backlight, which means they can be thinner and lighter than LCDs, as well as more power-efficient. LEP displays are also brighter with richer color, offering sharp, high-contrast images that can easily be viewed from acute angles. Additionally, LEPs in liquid form are unique in that they can be ink-jet printed on glass and plastic, which is a technology advantage that could significantly change the way displays are produced and open new markets and opportunities.

The field of use is semiconductors and related devices.
