Many of our engineers and scientists have advanced degrees and extensive research experience in physical devices hardware patents and non-patent literature. All of our team members have access to the most complete sources for patent data, product information, and scientific literature. Non-patent literature (NPL) tools include The ACM Digital Library, Compendex, Electronics and Communications Abstracts, Gale Group Computer, IEEE Xplore, Inspec, and ProQuest Technology Research.
Some of the active areas where we conduct physical device and hardware patent and technical literature searches are in:
Deposition processes and associated machinery and robotics
Electrical testing, measurement, and calibration equipment and methods
Hard disk drives and solid-state storage
Image display devices, including projection screens, LCDs, and plasma displays
