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.

Programmable V/I Source
Voltage or current (V/I) stimulus using digital information is generate for use
in integrated circuit testing using the same analog module.
Fig. 1 shows the schematic of the V/I source. In the voltage mode, S(1) is
on and S(2) is off. The output voltage is given by: V(L)=V(1).
Op Amp A(1) sums the input and load voltages and divides the sum by 2 to
yield V(1) at its output. With S(2) off, the 0p Amp A acts as a buffer. Resistor
R(1) limits the current drawn by the load. In the current mode, S(1) is off and
S(2) is on. In this case, the output of Op Amp A(1), is given by: V(A)=V(1)+V(L).
Because S(2) is on, the output of A(2) equals V(L)+V(1). The current I(L) i
given by: I(L) = V(1) / R(I).
The magnitude of load current and the mode can be externally controlled
using digital signals.
Fig. 2 shows an alternative method employing fewer Op-Amps. In the
voltage mode, S(1) is on and S(2) is off. A is used as a buffer between input and
load. In the current mode, the input voltage V(1) equals the voltage drop across
R(1). The expression for current is the same as shown for the circuit in Fig. 1.
