2123 Ex Parte Rhoades et al 11901780 - (D) ENGELS 103 FARJAMI & FARJAMI LLP DISNEY ENTERPRISES, INC. CHAD, ANISS

Appellants' system claims are directed to a "converter configured to convert" (claim 7) and a "system configured to convert" (claim 14). App.  Br. 13—16. In the event of further prosecution, we invite the Examiner to consider whether any of the limitations of Appellants' system claims should be interpreted as means-plus-function limitations under 35 U.S.C. SS 1 12, sixth paragraph. See Williamson v. Citrix Online, LLC, 792 F.3d 1339, (Fed. Cir. 2015) ("The standard [for identifying means-plus-function limitations] is whether the words of the claim are understood by persons of ordinary skill in the art to have a sufficiently definite meaning as the name for structure.").
