2172 Ex Parte OSullivan et al 11948458 - (D) PAULRAJ 102/103 CRGO LAW STEVEN M. GREENBERG TAN, ALVIN H

In applying a broadest reasonable interpretation standard, the Federal Circuit had recognized that a statement in a specification that a claim term "refers to" something can serve as a limitation.  See In re Rambus, 694 F.3d 42, 45-47 (Fed. Cir. 2012) (construing term "memory device" based on specification's disclosure that "[i]n general, each teaching of this invention which refers to a memory device can be practiced using a tranceiver device and one or more memory devices"); see also In re Abbott Diabetes Care Inc., 696 F.3d 1142, 1150 (Fed. Cir. 2012) (recognizing that "[e]ven when guidance is not provided in a explicit definitional format, the specification may define claim terms by implication such that the meaning may be found in or ascertained by a reading of the patent documents").
