Abstract

The reduced energy levels required by the write electrodes of certain electrolytic printers has led to a search for the best methods of implementing an integrated print head that can take full advantage of this reduction. One such method utilizes a combinational approach wherein a plurality of ceramic layers are personalized, as required, with the local print head interconnection circuitry needed for a particular application. This local circuitry does not include driver and logic chips which are coupled to the print head write style by means of the interconnection circuitry formed on the ceramic substrates.
