Title (EN) PARAMETRIC PROGRAMMABLE THERMAL PRINTER
(FR) IMPRIMANTE THERMIQUE PROGRAMMABLE PARAMÉTRIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A parametric programmable thermal printer is disclosed. The printer may include a controller that performs functions such as thermal history control and common mode voltage correction. The controller may be implemented in an integrated programmable medium such as a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) . Functions performed by the controller may be parameterized, and parameter values may be stored in registers . The controller may be used with a different thermal printer by changing the parameter values and/or reprogramming the programmable medium, and without otherwise redesigning or remanuf acturing the controller.
(FR) L’invention concerne une imprimante thermique programmable paramétrique. L’imprimante peut comprendre un contrôleur réalisant des fonctions telles un contrôle d’historique thermique et une correction de tension en mode commun. Le contrôleur peut être implémenté dans un support programmable intégré tel une FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array). Des fonctions assurées par le contrôleur peuvent être paramétrées et les valeurs de paramètre stockées dans des registres. Le contrôleur peut être employé avec une imprimante thermique différente en changeant la valeur des paramètres et/ou en reprogrammant le support programmable, sans avoir à reconcevoir ou refabriquer le contrôleur.
