 Our reviewing court has recently summarized appropriate sources used in claim construction as follows: The words of a claim are generally given their ordinary and customary meaning, which is the meaning that the term would have to a person of ordinary skill in the art at the time of the invention. Claim language must be viewed in light of the specification, which is the "single best guide to the meaning of a disputed term." In accordance with Phillips, we first look to the actual words of the claims and then read them in view of the specification. Although courts are permitted to consider extrinsic evidence (e.g., expert testimony, dictionaries, treatises), such evidence is generally of less significance than the intrinsic record. Extrinsic evidence may not be used "to contradict claim meaning that is unambiguous in light of the intrinsic evidence." "The construction that stays true to the claim language and most naturally aligns with the patent's description of the invention will be, in the end, the correct construction." Profectus Tech. LLC v. Huawei Techs. Co., 823 F.3d 1375, 1380 81 (Fed. Cir. 2016) (internal citations omitted).
