CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1 . An apparatus, comprising:

a print head coupled to a substrate to dispense fluid from the substrate in response to a command;

a reservoir coupled to the substrate to transport the fluid to the print head; and a preloaded storage container mounted on the reservoir to store the fluid and to provide the fluid to the reservoir in response to pressure applied to the container.

2. The apparatus of claim 1 , wherein the print head is a thermal ink jet print head or a piezoelectric print head.

3. The apparatus of claim 1 , further comprising a plurality of reservoirs coupled to the substrate, wherein the plurality of reservoirs receive the fluid from the preloaded storage container and transport the fluid to separate portions of the substrate in response to the pressure applied to the preloaded storage container.

4. The apparatus of claim 1 , further comprising a plurality of reservoirs coupled to the substrate, wherein each of the plurality of reservoirs receive separate fluid from separate preloaded storage containers assigned to each reservoir.

5. The apparatus of claim 1 , wherein the substrate includes a set of electrodes that controls the dispensing of the fluid from the substrate in response to the command.

6. The apparatus of claim 5, wherein the set of electrodes are connected to a detection circuit on the substrate or the print head to detect that the reservoir has been filled with the fluid.

7. The apparatus of claim 6, wherein the detection circuit includes an impedance circuit to measure a change of impedance in the substrate or the print head as the fluid reaches the substrate or the print head.

8. The apparatus of claim 5, further comprising a memory that is accessible via the set of electrodes that records a fluid type for the fluid that is stored in the preloaded storage container.

9. The apparatus of claim 1 , wherein the preloaded storage container is a blister pack having a flexible membrane to store the fluid, the blister pack includes a cover to hold the fluid in the flexible membrane until pressure is applied to the cover.

10. The apparatus of claim 1 , wherein the reservoir is attached to the substrate or formed as part of the substrate.

1 1 . A method, comprising:

coupling a print head to a substrate to dispense a fluid wherein the print head is discarded after the fluid is dispensed;

coupling a reservoir to the substrate to receive the fluid for the print head; and mounting a preloaded storage container on the reservoir to disconnect the fluid from the print head until pressure is applied to the container.

12. The method of claim 1 1 , further comprising forming a set of electrodes on the substrate to detect that the fluid has been transported to the substrate or the print head.

13. The apparatus of claim 12, further comprising providing a circuit on the substrate or the print head to measure a change of impedance in the substrate as the fluid reaches the substrate.

14. A system, comprising:

a print head coupled to a substrate to dispense fluid from the substrate in response to a command;

a reservoir coupled to the substrate to transport the fluid to the print head; and a preloaded storage container mounted on the reservoir to store the fluid and to separate the fluid from the print head until pressure is applied to the container; and

a processor having a memory to store machine-executable instructions that cause the processor to issue the command to the print head to dispense the fluid.

15. The system of claim 14, wherein the substrate includes a set of electrodes that controls the dispensing of the fluid from the substrate in response to the command issued by the processor, the set of electrodes are connected to a detection circuit on the substrate or the print head to detect that the substrate or the print head has received the fluid from the reservoir.
