DWPI on Delphion is no longer available, as of March 31, 2012. DWPI data is available on the Thomson Innovation platform.


Delphion’s most heavily promoted collections are the German applications and granted patents/utility models, which contain bibliographic data, document images, and first claims for the documents back to 1968, and full text collections back to 1987 for both collections (the data coverage page links to a blurb praising these collections as the “most comprehensive” around).[1] The collection does not contain "thumbnail" representative drawings that can be scanned via the hit list (see Viewing Patent Drawings for more information); however, an image of the patent's first page is often shown in place of representative patent drawings. These front pages often contain representative drawings and can be enlarged via the record view.

editors note iconEditor's Note:

Search provider PatBase offers full text (OCR) data for German applications at least back to 1920, and full text (OCR) of German utility models at least back to 1964, easily meeting and exceeding the Delphion coverage.
