A hardware electronic sub-system is currently utilized in non-impact printers such as the Xerox 4045TM laser printer to generate an image based on the alphanumeric character to be printed, the desired font, and the character size. The electronics to implement this function, particularly where other imaging parameters such as proportional spacing, rightlleft justification, and image orientation are included, is quite sophisticated and very expensive to manufacture.
