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.

The Advanced Reliability Universal Button Actuator (ARUBA.) was designed to realistically simulate and accelerate button actuation of a paging product. The ARUBA has many uses ranging from fatigue testing to software testing.
The uniqueness of the ARUBA comes from its versatility. Currently, there are many different pag- ing products, each with its own individual shape, size, and button configuration. The ARUBA was
designed to easily accommodate all of these prod- ucts with respect to all of their form factors. The ARUBA can also perform thousands of actuations on multiple units in a short period of time.
The ARUBA consists of four main components: universal clamping blocks, flex-tube positioning system, pneumatics, and computer controls. Figure 1 shows a 3-Bay ARUBA station.

Clamping of virtually any paging device is attached to its housing, or if a beltclip is attached, accomplished by means of specially designed the pager can be elevated on small shelves cut into clamping blocks. The blocks allow a pager to be the clamp blocks. Figure 2 depicts the universal flat on the ARUBA base if there is no beltclip clamping blocks.
