Concept Search - What can I type?
For a concept search, you can enter phrases, sentences, or full paragraphs in English. For example, copy and paste the abstract of a patent application or paragraphs from an article.
Concept search eliminates the need for complex Boolean syntax to inform retrieval. Our Semantic Gist engine uses advanced cognitive semantic analysis to extract the meaning of data. This reduces the chances of missing valuable information, that may result from traditional keyword searching.

Method for an integrated, one-piece connector for LAN/Modem
Disclosed is a method for an integrated, one-piece connector for
LAN/MODEM mini-PCI application. Benefits include improved functionality,
improved manufacturability, and improved reliability.
PCI combo LAN/Modem card designs currently require two separate miniature
connectors to be mounted on the PBA to support both a 2-wire telephone line,
modem connection, and a 14-pin connection for the LAN adapter application.
disclosed method is for combination connectors that mate both connector types
into a single piece. This design covers both a one-piece PBA SMT-mounted female
connector, and a one-piece male, cable end connector (see Figure 1). The volume
of these combined connectors would be the same or less than the two individual
connectors that are conventionally used.
disclosed method provides several advantages over the conventional solution,
One single placement during assembly versus two
Guaranteed, accurate positioning of the two connectors
relative to each other
Simplified single connection to the product for both
test and customer versus two separate connections and cables
Guarantees proper electrical polarization/orientation
of both cables/connectors
Simplifies automated testing of the product
Greatly increases the strength of the test connector
due to the integration of the two discrete cables and resultant improved strain
