1. Description of Products. The products that are available for purchase on the Site are sold only for evaluation purposes in limited quantities. The CS1021 is an application specific standard product (“ASSP”) developed for medical device designers and manufacturers to reduce development time and assist in the development of other products. Further testing, development, and qualification may be necessary before the ASSP is incorporated as a component into another product that will be manufactured.

If you determine from your evaluation of the ASSP that it may be suitable for use in conjunction with your intended application, Cactus is available to assist you with testing, development, and qualification of the ASSP as provided in a separate agreement. If you determine that you need additional features in the ASSP, Cactus can assist you in modifying the ASSP or developing a different ASSP to fit your needs under a separate agreement.

The evaluation board is not intended to be used except for evaluation of the ASSP. There are components on the evaluation board other than the ASSP that are the products of other companies, and the purchase of the evaluation board does not grant any rights or authorization to use these other components in conjunction with a product that you may develop.
