Finally, we do not agree with the Examiner’s stance that as long as the controller of Imahashi and White is capable of performing the recited function, namely, to create a bypass transport path to transport substrates based upon information that the primary transport path is unavailable, then the controller of Imahashi and White “meets the claim.” Ans. 2–3. Appellant is correct that when functional language is associated with programming or some other structure required to perform the function, that programming or structure must be present in order to meet the claim limitation. See Reply Br. 5–6 (citing See Typhoon Touch Technologies, Inc. v. Dell, Inc., 659 F.3d 1376, 1380 (Fed. Cir. 2011)). As such, in these circumstances, the “capable of” test requires that the prior art structure be capable of performing the function without further programming. Id. The Examiner has not provided any findings that the controller of Imahashi and White is capable of creating a bypass transport path to transport substrates based upon information that the primary transport path is unavailable, as called for by each of independent claims 1 and 13, without further programming.
