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.

IIC Multi-Master Identification Protocol On Redundant IIC Devices
Disclosed is a technique for providing a master device identifier for command/response type transactions over an industry standard IIC (Inter-IC) I/O bus. Such a IIC master identifier is particularly advantageous in complex systems where multiple IIC agents communicate and act as both IIC masters and IIC slaves on the same IIC bus. Such a system is represented in Fig. 1.
In such a system, communications between IIC agents typically involves one agent mastering the IIC bus and sending a command (message) to another IIC agent acting as an IIC slave. Subsequently the targeted IIC slave agent would respond by mastering the IIC bus and sending a response (message) back to the original IIC agent which sent it the command. The problem is that the industry standard IIC protocol has no means of identifying the master agent on an IIC bus transaction so the responding agent does not know to which IIC agent it should address its response to.
The industry standard IIC protocol provides for transmission of a packet comprised of a start delimiter, a target address, a variable length message, and a stop delimiter (see Fig.2).
The solution to this problem is to provide as IIC master device identifier as part of the variable length message portion of an IIC transaction (see Fig. 3).
This IIC master device identifier could (but is not restricted to) include the master device type and the master's corresponding slave...
