Datapath and driver solutions for the 1001, 1002, 1003 and 1003AMp printheads
The Meteor architecture for Xaar contains two layers of hardware: a Meteor Head Driver Card (HDC) mounted near the head and connecting to the Xaar flexi cables and a Meteor Print Controller Card (PCC) typically controlling 8 HDCs. This architecture enables Meteor to be used in any layout of printheads in an array. By linking with a high-resolution synchronization cable, multiple PCCs can be racked to control massive arrays of Xaar printheads, all triggered from a single encoder and a single document-start sensor. The Meteor datapath provides flexible image manipulation and storage options.
