We find Appellant’s argument persuasive. In determining whether a claim is definite under 35 U.S.C. § 112, second paragraph, “[t]he USPTO, in examining an application, is obliged to test the claims for reasonable precision . . . .” In re Packard, 751 F.3d 1307, 1313 (Fed. Cir. 2014). We find that claim 1 satisfies this standard.  ...

The claim does not omit structure that provides for the recited function but instead the functional language further characterizes the structure of claim 1. See, e.g., In re Swinehart, 439 F.2d 210, 212 (CCPA 1971) (“[T]here is nothing intrinsically wrong with [defining something by what it does rather than what it is] in drafting patent claims.”).

Swinehart, In re, 439 F.2d 210, 169 USPQ 226 (CCPA 1971) 2114 2161.01 2173.01 2173.05(g) 2183
