“A patent applicant is free to recite features of an apparatus either structurally or functionally . . . Yet, choosing to define an element functionally, i.e., by what it does, carries with it a risk.” In re Schreiber, 128 F.3d 1473, 1478 (Fed. Cir. 1997) (internal citation omitted). ...

See Schreiber at 1477-78 (once the Examiner finds that the prior art structure would be capable of performing all of the functions claimed, the burden shifts to the applicant to show this this is not the case.).
