Technical Specifications

IPDAS is a client/server application and links to a MSĀ® SQL Server database using ODBC (with the database calls written using ADO). None of the tools that we use to build IPDAS are proprietary or obsolete.

Below are the minimum technical requirements necessary to support IPDAS in your organization.

Supported Server Operating Systems:

  • Windows 2016
  • Windows 2012 R2
  • Windows 2012
  • Windows 2008-R2
  • Windows 2008
  • 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems

SQL Server Requirements & Supported SQL Server Versions:

  • SQL Server 2017 (Under Testing)
  • SQL Server 2016
  • SQL Server 2014
  • SQL Server 2012
  • SQL Server 2008 R2
  • SQL Server 2008
  • 32-bit and 64-bit versions

For a large firm (approximately 100 attorneys), we recommend a 64-bit version of SQL Server with 8 GB of RAM. IPDAS performance is more sensitive to RAM levels in the SQL Server than to processor speed, although both can help.

The IPDAS database will typically occupy 1-5 GB of disk space (excluding back-ups) for a large firm.

Supported Client Operating Systems:

  • Windows 10
  • Windows 8/8.1
  • Windows 7
  • Windows Vista
  • 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems

Supported Microsoft Word Versions:

  • MS Word 2016 (32-bit)
  • MS Word 2013 (32-bit)
  • MS Word 2010 (32-bit)
  • MS Word 2007 (32-bit)

Supported Document Management Systems:

  • iManage DeskSite, WorkSite, and FileSite
  • NetDocuments
  • Open Text Docs Open
  • Open Text eDOCS DM
  • Worldox

Supported Browsers:

  • Internet Explorer (versions 8-11)
  • IPDAS Web Reports supports Internet Explorer 11 and the latest versions of Mozilla Firefox & Google Chrome as well

We support all versions of Adobe Acrobat and Reader supported by the USPTO.

We recommend that user workstations running Windows 7 or later have 2 GB of RAM, although IPDAS can function with far less.
