Hardware & Electronic Device Patents

Hardware patents and electronic device patents have overlapping subject matters. Hardware patents cover any physical assembly, object, or combination of parts that provides a mechanical benefit or advantage.

Electronic device patents cover any device, machine, or assembly that uses power or electricity to perform a function. This includes electronics like cell phones and computers, but also includes machines and electrical engineering apparatuses. 

Hardware applications cover parts and tools that are used in the manufacturing of electronic devices. Thus, our experience in one industry helps us protect clients in the other industry.
