In reaching this conclusion, we acknowledge that claim 1 recites conditional limitations. That is, not only does claim 1 recite that if the component requests a DMA channel, the DMA subsystem determines whether the request is a public or secure access, both “wherein” clauses of claim 1 also contain conditional limitations, namely allowing particular DMA channel configurations if the request is a secure access and public access, respectively. Notably, these conditions need not be satisfied to meet a method claim reciting these conditions. See Ex parte Schulhauser, No. 2013-007847, slip op. at 9-10 (PTAB Apr. 28, 2016) (precedential). But here, these limitations are recited as part of system claim 1 and, as such, the claim requires structure for performing the functions should the conditions occur. Id. at 14—15. As explained previously, the Examiner fails to show this structure and, therefore, the rejection is deficient for that reason alone.
