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.

Disclosed is a method for inserting, extracting, and
retaining various devices, including power supplies, add-in cards, and docking
modules. Benefits include a solution that is intuitive and easy to use.
The disclosed method is useful for inserting, extracting,
and locking Hot Plug Memory modules in a multi-processor server.
The disclosed method consists of a handle, two symmetric
levers, a spring element (which can be integrated into the handle), a latching
mechanism (which can be integrated into the handle), and a carrier (see Figure
The carrier is the backing plate for a card that must be
inserted and extracted. This carrier could also be the side wall of a power
supply or other device that needs mechanically assisted insertion and
integrated latching. The user pushes on the handle to install the device, and
pulls on the handle to extract the device. The linear motion of the handle is
converted to a rotational motion of the levers via a cam in the handle and
lever. The levers have a separate fixed-pivot joint. These levers engage fixed features in the assembly (e.g. an
opening in the side wall) that the device is being inserted into. The levers
apply a load on these fixed features that overcomes the mating force or
disengaging force of the connector or other resistance. The geometry of the
lever and the amount of handle-travel determines the amount of mechanical
advantage that can be achieved.
The disclosed method has a two-to-one advantage over a
