Title (EN) MICRO-MINIATURE FLUID JETTING DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'EJECTION DE LIQUIDE MICRO-MINIATURISE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A micro-miniature fluid ejecting device with low cost construction is disclosed. The fluid ejecting device includes a semiconductor substrate (24) having fluid ejectors (18) formed on a surface of the substrate. A flexible circuit (22) is fixedly attached to the semiconductor substrate. The flexible circuit has power contacts (26) for providing power to the fluid ejectors. At least one drive circuit (34) is connected to the fluid ejectors. A fluid sequencer (36) is connected to the drive circuit for selectively activating the fluid ejectors. The drive circuit and fluid sequencer are each disposed on either the semiconductor substrate or the flexible circuit.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif d'éjection de liquide micro-miniaturisé de fabrication bon marché, qui comprend un substrat semiconducteur (24) présentant des éjecteurs de liquide (18) formés sur une surface du substrat. Un circuit souple (22), fixé solidairement au substrat semiconducteur, comprend des contacts d'alimentation (26) pour alimenter en courant les éjecteurs de liquide. Au moins un circuit d'attaque (34) est raccordé aux éjecteurs de liquide. Un combinateur à étages fluidique (36) est raccordé au circuit d'attaque pour activer sélectivement les éjecteurs de liquide. Le circuit d'attaque et le combinateur à étages fluidique sont disposés chacun soit sur le substrat semiconducteur, soit sur le circuit souple.
