For a prior art element to satisfy a means-plus-function limitation, as permitted by former 35 U.S.C. § 112, sixth paragraph, the prior art element must either be the same as the disclosed structure or be an “equivalent[] thereof.” In re Donaldson Co., 16 F.3d 1189, 1195 (Fed. Cir. 1994) (en banc). Two structures are “equivalent” within the meaning of the statute if they “perform the identical function, in substantially the same way, with substantially the same result.” Kemco Sales, Inc. v. Control Papers Co., 208 F.3d 1352, 1364 (Fed. Cir. 2000) (emphasis added).
