FOR FURTHER ACTION: See Form PCT/ISA/220 as well as, where applicable, item 5 below.
This international search report has been prepared by this International Searching Authority and is transmitted to the applicant according to Article 18. A copy is being transmitted to the International Bureau.
It is also accompanied by a copy of each prior art document cited in this report.
1. Basis of the report

This international search report has been established taking into account the rectification of an obvious mistake authorized by or notified to this Authority under Rule 91 (Rule 43.6bis(a)).
c.
With regard to any nucleotide and/or amino acid sequence disclosed in the international application, the international search was carried out on the basis of a sequence listing:
2. Certain claims were found unsearchable
3. Unity of invention is lacking
This International Searching Authority found multiple inventions in this international application, as follows:
1. claims: 1-6
1) Claims 1-6 : an integrated circuit with two different sensors and control logic enabling one of the sensor as a enabled sensor, as defined in claim 1, in order to solve the objective problem of detecting the state of a sensor.
2. claims: 7-14
2) Claims 7-14 : an integrated circuit with a plurality of memory cells and a select circuit, as defined in claim 7, in order to solve the objective problem of detecting the state of a memory cell.
3. claims: 15-21
3) Claims 15-21 : a fluid ejection device comprising a plurality of elongate substrate with a length twenty times the width, and with a junction device, a resistive device and control logic, as defined in claim 15, in order to solve the objective problem of reducing the width of a semiconductor substrate to reduce costs and improve manufacturability.
1.
As all required additional search fees were timely paid by the applicant, this international search report covers all searchable claims.
2.
As all searchable claims could be searched without effort justifying additional fees, this Authority did not invite payment of additional fees.
3.
