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 tool to optically align two elements. A good application would be to align a contact test head to a ceramic substrate, but the tool is by no means limited to this application.

The basic concept
entails two monochrome video cameras, a RGB
color monitor and two banks of memory to store two video images. The
banks of memory are incorporated into video "frame grabbers". A PC
is used to control the frame grabbers which are on a card (or cards)
within the PC. One monochrome camera
looks at one side of the mirror
which looks at one of the elements to be aligned. The other
monochrome camera looks at the other side of the mirror which looks
at the other element to be aligned. Note
that one camera is on a
slightly different horizontal plane than the other to compensate for
the thickness of the mirror (see Figure).
The image of
one of the elements to be aligned is stored as a
binary image in one memory and the image of the other element to be
aligned is stored as a binary image in the other memory. The two
memories feed separate color inputs of a color display. The images
are laid over one another in different colors on the color display.
An operator can manually align the two elements by moving them until
they are correctly superimposed on the color monitor.
grabbers are built in such a way that they can be
accessed by the cameras and by the PC.
