"A patent ... is a set of exclusive rights granted by a sovereign state to an inventor or assignee for a limited period of time in exchange for detailed public disclosure of an invention. An invention is a solution to a specific technological problem and is a product or a process. Patents are a form of intellectual property.
The procedure for granting patents, requirements placed on the patentee, and the extent of the exclusive rights vary widely between countries according to national laws and international agreements. Typically, however, a granted patent application must include one or more claims that define the invention. A patent may include many claims, each of which defines a specific property right. These claims must meet relevant patentability requirements, such as novelty and non-obviousness. The exclusive right granted to a patentee in most countries is the right to prevent others from making, using, selling, importing, or distributing a patented invention without permission.
Under the World Trade Organization's (WTO) Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights, patents should be available in WTO member states for any invention, in all fields of technology, and the term of protection available should be a minimum of twenty years. Nevertheless, there are variations on what is patentable subject matter from country to country." [Patent. Wikipedia]

UML Deployment Diagram. Design Elements

UML Deployment diagram describes the hardware used in system implementations and the execution environments and artifacts deployed on the hardware.
ConceptDraw has 393 vector stencils in the 13 libraries that helps you to start using software for designing your own UML Diagrams. You can use the appropriate stencils of UML notation from UML Deployment library.

Hybrid Network Topology

This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the Computer and Networks solution from Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
This is example of the Hybrid network topology.
Network topology is the topological structure of the computer network. There are many types of the network topologies: bus, star, ring, mesh topology, but the most popular is the hybrid topology.

SWOT Matrix Template

UML Deployment Diagram Example - ATM System UML diagrams

This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the UML Deployment Diagram library of the Rapid UML Solution from the Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
This sample shows the work of the ATM (Automated Teller Machine) banking system that is used for service and performing of the banking transactions using ATMs. System engineers can use comprehensive UML diagrams solution.

SWOT Template

The "SWOT Analysis" solution gives simple visual support for all the steps of a SWOT Analysis process. SWOT analysis is a strategic planning method used to evaluate the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats facing a project. The new template for ConceptDraw MINDMAP isually supports identifying internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable.
