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.

Simulation Model for Optical Delay
Disclosed is a behavioral to simulate the fiber link in an optical data path. It
provides programmable delays so that all the various data and control paths in
the hardware can be verified.
The processor complex uses a fiber-optic connection to other processors and
components. The link hardware is responsible for obtaining serial information
from the fiber-optic link and transferring it to the processor main storage. To test
this logic, two sets of hardware are used to communicate with each other with a
behavioral in between to simulate the link.
To fully test the many different protocols defined by the serial architecture
and different delays associated with the asynchronous communication over the
link, the behavioral had to be designed to generate any arbitrary delay between
when it received data from one channel and transmitted it to the other. For
maximum flexibility this delay was designed to be programmable from within the
test case instead of from outside the simulation.
The behavioral is basically a first-in, first-out (FIFO) buffer. It puts input data
into the FIFO buffer and takes it out of this buffer to send to the output. In a no-
delay situation the depth of this buffer is equal to the header size of the serial
data on the link. The behavioral monitors the input data stream for a start of the
frame field. One of the fields in the header is used to specify the delay
parameter. The output of the behavioral is delayed...
