Design Considerations

Printers now come in a variety of forms and uses.  From the large, multifunction printers for the small business and home office, to the portable photo printers, Texas Instruments offers a variety of products to meet the requirements of these systems.

Inkjet printers are characterized by their printing mechanism of shooting ink directly onto the page.  Inkjets can print in superior quality or can be made portable and efficient to travel with a digital still camera for printing on the go.  Texas Instruments makes motor controls for both the print head and the paper feed to enable quality and efficiency controls for the targeted market.

Laser printers are optimal for high volume, but can also produce images in color and of high quality.  Laser printers work by applying a charge to the paper target and applying oppositely charged ink toner to the paper.  This toner is then heated and fused into the paper.  Texas Instruments provides motor solutions for the paper feed as well as the toner drum and can also provide solutions for the rest of the laser system.

The latest consumer printers come with a variety of peripherals.  Fax modems may be essential for small businesses and home offices, while scanner and copier functions are also in high demand.  The latest offerings may also include memory card or direct camera inputs to directly print photographs.  Many new printers are now also including wireless connectivity for direct integration into a user’s wifi network.  Texas Instruments provides a variety of connectivity solutions for peripherals and networking.
