Disclosed is an electronic mechanism that decompresses a compressed print data stream. This mechanism automatically detects approaching overrun and underrun conditions. It switches between the slow speed non-pipelined mode and the high speed fully pipelined mode as needed to maximize the decompression efficiency while avoiding overrun or underrun.
