Using its expertise in LSI technology, ROHM has developed new high density driver chips for use in the KD2003-DG10A . Capable of being employed for both thermal and thermal transfer printing, with a print speed of 250mm/s, the resulting printheads are the fastest in their class. The high-speed and high-density printing answers the needs of ATM, kiosk and ticket printing devices, which are increasingly being called upon to produce graphical output.
1) The use of a special partial glaze and the latest heating element structure, along with new high-density driver chips that can accept big current, has allowed ROHM to achieve print speeds of 250mm/s, the fastest in its class.
2) One rank resistance value of 650Ω ± 3% eliminates the inconvenience of rank selection.
3) The required driving voltage of 3.15 to 5.25V allows wide range of power supply voltage setting. This also allows multiple choice of electronic components for printers.
4) 2-inch, 3-inch and 4-inch series are available.
