Design choice may apply when alternative elements or configurations in the prior art perform the same function as the claimed structures with no unexpected results. See In re Kuhle, 526 F.2d 553, 555 (CCPA 1975) (finding that the use of the claimed feature "would be an obvious matter of design choice" when it "solves no stated problem" and "presents no novel or unexpected result" over the disclosed alternatives). In the context of a rejection based on design choice, the relevant issue is whether the alleged differences between the claimed invention and the prior art "result in a difference in function or give unexpected results." See In re Rice, 341 F.2d 309, 314 (CCPA 1965).
