Exhibit 10.3(b)

U.S. EMPLOYEES

STOCK OPTION TERMS AND CONDITIONS

FOR AWARDS UNDER 2007 EQUITY INCENTIVE PLAN

Congratulations on being granted stock options under Spansion’s 2007 Equity Incentive Plan. The number of shares of your award, the exercise price and the vesting schedule are in your stock option Award Notice. Your award is subject to the provisions of your Award Notice, these Terms and Conditions, and the Plan document (collectively, the “Terms”). Your options are non-qualified options and are not intended to qualify as “incentive stock options” under Section 422 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. Your options have been granted to you in addition to, and not instead of, any other form of compensation.

In addition to these Terms and Conditions, you should carefully read your Award Notice and the other Plan documents, which are available on the Company’s designated stock administrator’s web site.
