The terms and conditions as set forth herein as well as any additional terms and conditions that may appear on the face hereof shall constitute the entire agreement between our company the Seller and your company the Buyer.

All shipments shall be EX WORKS Seller's facility in California. (i.e. Seller makes the goods available to the Buyer at the Seller's own premises). At Buyer's request the Seller will accept deliveries FOB Seller's facility in California. (i.e. Seller is called on to deliver the goods to a carrier named by the Buyer. These are shipment contracts with the shipment point named, and carriage unpaid by the seller.) Seller reserves the right to request a prepaid deposit to cover the cost of freight, especially on international shipments. Deposit will be refunded to the customer or applied as credit once Seller receives proof that shipping charges have been accepted and paid by customer. The selected carriers are FedEx and UPS.
Default shipping method is FedEx Standard Overnight or UPS Next Day Air. Buyer has to provide Seller with a valid FedEx or UPS account #. Ground shipments, prepaid and add or shipments to PO Boxes or freight forwarders are not available.
Where special domestic or export packaging is specified involving greater expense, supplemental charges will apply to cover such extra expense. When customer does not provide a valid FedEx or UPS account # a minimum charge of $25 will apply to any shipment in California, a minimum of $40 to any destination to continental US and a minimum of $55 to Hawaii, Alaska and US possessions.

a) Estimated Standard Lead-time (in business working days ARO - Not including shipping time) - in accordance with quote.
b) Rush delivery and rush charges (in business working days ARO - Not including shipping time). Rush delivery may apply to certain custom TECHNOLOGIES. For Rush Orders (RFQ requiered), a rush charge of up to 100% is added to the total charges.
Seller will attempt to meet shipment schedules. However, any shipment quotation or forecast on an order acknowledgment is only an estimate of the time required to make shipment and Seller will not assume liability, consequential or otherwise, because of any delay or failure to deliver all or any part of any order for any reason, including its active or passive negligence. Seller reserves the right to allocate inventories and current production in any way it deems necessary. Delivery does not include vacation or any US holidays nor holidays observed overseas by any of our subcontractors. Delivery does not include shipping and transit time.
SPECIAL NOTE: Quantity for any custom made product will include a tolerance of ±20%. Final cost will match the actual shipped quantity.

Prices and orders do not include Federal, State or local excise, sales, use or other taxes now or hereinafter enacted, which are applicable to the TECHNOLOGIES sold hereunder or this transaction, which tax or taxes will be added by Seller to the sales price when Seller has the legal obligation to collect the same and will be invoiced to and paid by Buyer, unless Buyer provides Seller with a proper tax exemption certificate. In the event Seller is required to pay any such tax, fee or charge at the time of sale or thereafter, the Buyer shall reimburse Seller therefore.
For all international orders, Buyer is responsible for any customs duties and taxes that may occur.

Domestic orders:
Several convenient payment options are available for first time customers: Cashier Check, COD, Visa, Master Card, PPD (prepaid), Wire transfers. Minimum order is $125.00/line item, however it varies as a function of the type of product ordered.
Company checks are accepted from customers with Net 10 or Net 30 open account. US MICROWAVES extends credit only to well qualified US government institution and US companies, credit being extended for 10/30 days after delivery of goods. Invoices will be issued for each partial shipment.
A credit application is available to download on customer's special created portal. When opening a credit account please allow sufficient time to complete the approval process.
Seller reserves the right to require alternative payment terms, including, without limitation, sight draft, letter of credit or payment in advance.
All payments shall be made to Seller at its principal office in Santa Clara, California, or such other office as designated on the face hereof.
All invoice paid after due date will be assesses a late payment service charge of eighteen (18%) per annum or the maximum allowed by applicable law. If the Buyer fails to make advance payment when requested by Seller, or if the Buyer is or becomes delinquent in the payment of any sum due Seller (whether or not arising out of this order) or refuses to accept C.O.D. shipment, then Seller shall have the right, in addition to any other remedy to which it may be entitled in law or equity, to cancel the sales order, refuse to make further deliveries, and declare immediately due and payable all unpaid amounts for goods previously delivered to the Buyer. Partial shipments made under any order shall be treated, as a separate transaction and payment thereof shall be made accordingly. However, in the event of any default by Buyer, Seller may decline to make further shipments without in any way affecting its rights under such order.
The Seller may, at any time or times suspend the credit privileges due to payments history.
For first time Buyers, first order is Credit Card ONLY.
International orders:
International orders are processed in addition to the United States and its territories. All international orders are exported from US in accordance with the Export Administration Regulations. Diversion contrary to US law is prohibited. Unless otherwise stated the terms of the sale are T/T in advance i.e. Buyer shall transfer funds into Seller's Corporate bank account. Seller's bank account information will be provided to Buyer only after acceptance of order. No order is processed until receipt in full of funds. A $50 International handling fee is charged for all orders. Major credit cards are also accepted as an alternative to a T/T in advance - Visa, Master Card. Credit cards are charged at the time of placing the order.

If the financial conditions of the Buyer at any time is such as to give Seller, in its judgment, reasonable grounds for insecurity concerning Buyer's ability to perform its obligations under this agreement. Seller may (a) by notice in writing to Buyer, cancel this agreement, without judicial intervention or declaration of default of Buyer and without prejudice to any right or remedy which may have accrued or may accrue thereafter to Seller, (b) require full or partial payment in advance and suspend any further deliveries for continuance of the work to be performed by Seller until such payment has been received or (c) make shipments C.O.D.

A die is a small block of semiconductor material, ceramic or glass on which a given circuit function is fabricated. Many dice are manufactured in large batches at the same time on a substrate or wafer in a series of successive photolithographic processes. Upon completion of the manufacturing process, the substrates or wafers are diced in many die. Substrate or wafer singulation also referred as dicing or sawing process is final critical step in bare die manufacturing process. Our company has undertaken the task to redesign and manufacture the future semiconductor and thin film bare die components. Our bare die TECHNOLOGIES are used in assembly of hybrid circuits and are compatible with chip and wire, flip chip, chip scale CSP and surface mount technologies SMD. In today's extreme miniaturization market, there is no more room for the large packages to protect the die. It means that the bare die has to survive on its own without the protection of a package. Known Good Die concept is no longer satisfactory if the die cannot withstand harsh environmental conditions and degrades. The solution developed by our company for known good die for bare die applications is gold interconnection and gold terminations and well-engineered materials that further enhance the die reliability. Our company designs and manufactures standard and custom semiconductor and thin film components for bio-medical, wireless telecommunications, optoelectronics, computing, industrial, military and space and satellite applications.
