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.
A motherboard is slotted through around the Central Processor Unit (CPU) and the board thus acts like a spring member.

Slotted Board Spring Member
This invention is to allow for the flexing or bowing of a stiff motherboard about the
CPU area. The board itself is to act as a spring member or for the board to be acted
upon by a spring member from underneath. The invention is to slot the board through its
thickness in-between adjacent CPU locations thereby allowing the board in the areas
in-between the slots to flex or bend independently. This is useful in implementing the
under the board spring idea as a method to decouple the weight of the heat sink from
the motherboard. Slots of varying length, width and configuration would be cut through
the board mechanically isolating the planned areas requiring flexure. These areas and
slots would have to be tuned to deliver the right amount of deflection with a given force
required so as not to adversely affect the line circuits in the board. The application of
force to the board should be done in a way that does not deflect or bend the board
unnecessarily. The areas and the slots would be agreed upon before any board layout
could commence. See the following picture for one implementation of the invention.
