  • Patent number: 10357967
    Abstract: Printheads for jetting a print fluid and associated methods. In one embodiment, the printhead includes a row of jetting channels configured to jet droplets of a print fluid, and a head driver that receives a data signal and a drive waveform comprising a series of jetting pulses. Responsive to the data signal indicating jetting by a jetting channel, the head driver applies one or more jetting pulses on the drive waveform to an actuator of the jetting channel to cause ejection of a droplet from a nozzle of the jetting channel. Responsive to the data signal indicating non-jetting by the jetting channel, the head driver clips the amplitude of a jetting pulse on the drive waveform to generate a non-jetting pulse that is applied to the actuator of the jetting channel. The non-jetting pulse creates movement of a fluid meniscus at the nozzle of the jetting channel without ejecting a droplet.

  • Publication number: 20190134978
    Abstract: Printheads for a jetting apparatus that may be oriented at different angles to print at different resolutions. In one embodiment, a printhead has a nozzle plate with nozzles arranged in rows that are parallel, and attachment members. The nozzles in each of the rows are spaced by a nozzle distance, and the rows of nozzles are spaced at a distance of ┬żn times the nozzle distance. The attachment members may orient the printhead at an angle that is perpendicular to a direction of relative movement between the printhead and a print medium to print at a one resolution, and may orient the printhead at another angle (in a range of 36 and 38 degrees) to the direction of relative movement between the printhead and the print medium to print at a higher resolution.

  • Publication number: 20190028988
    Abstract: It takes a processing time to perform a security process on a time synchronization message, thus the difference of a delay time required for the security process can be made between a time at which the time synchronization message is actually transmitted and a transmission time assigned to the time synchronization message, and therefore, the difference between the actual transmission time of the time synchronization message and the assigned transmission time needs to be reduced. In generation of a secure time synchronization message in the synchronization system according to embodiments of the present invention, most of the security processes is performed in an upper layer which is an MAC layer or a higher layer, and processes including the assignment of the transmission time and assignment of authentication information for authenticating validity of the transmission time are performed in a physical layer.
