I acknowledge that I have carefully read this Agreement and understand and agree to all the provisions in this Agreement.
Signed at North Reading, MA, this 24 day of July, 2009
In consideration of my at-will employment by Teradyne,
Inc., a corporation of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
(herein referred to as “the Company”), and the payments
made to me as consequence thereof, I agree that I will
promptly report to an officer of the Company or to such
other individual as may from time to time be designated, all
inventions and new ideas which I, alone or with others,
have conceived or reduced to practice since the time of
entering the employment of the Company in respect to any
subject matter relating to the business in which the
Company is engaging as of the date of conception or
reduction to practice of each such invention or new idea.
This obligation ceases with termination of my employment
with the Company.
I further agree to assign to the Company the entire interest
throughout the world in all inventions and new ideas
referred to in the proceeding paragraph, whether or not
reported by me, and to execute all papers and do anything
necessary and reasonable to secure to the Company title
therein and Letters Patent pertaining thereto including the
giving of testimony in any suit if called so to do during or
after my employment but all at the expense of the Company.
I also waive all claims to moral rights in any Inventions.
All inventions and new ideas that would fall within the
scope of this Agreement, but for the fact that they were
conceived prior to my employment by the Company, may
be excluded from this Agreement only if I can establish,
under applicable inventorship law, a date of conception
prior to my entering the employment of the Company.
I further agree that I will make a written record of all
inventions and new ideas falling within the scope of this
Agreement in the form of notes, sketches, drawing, or
