Paper Abstract

We have developed a 300 dpi A4-size printer using the TDT method for desk-top publishing images including pictures and characters. This printer consists of an engine part and an interface part. They are connected through a VME (Versa Module Europe) bus. The engine part has density compensation for keeping high uniformity and works as a one line printer. The interface part includes SCSI and Centronics I/F with 1 or 4 color plane memories. The most useful function is that it can print any length of paper size, for example A4/A5 size, letter size, U.S. legal size, or any longer size for a panoramic image.
