Abstract

In a digital scanner, remote storage and retrieval of scanner control software can be utilized to decrease the field upgrade costs, facilitate a phased development of control software, and reduce costs. The process is applicable to scanning systems which include a dedicated host/fler as part of the system as well as in desktop scanners which connect to a personal computer.
