Microcontrollers for Multi-function Printers

Block Diagram

Multifunction monochrome/color printers and faxes keep getting faster and more sophisticated to meet the needs of a 24/7 economy. As this equipment evolves, high-resolution image processors, faster control of the document feeder and energy conservation are required. The Cypress FM3 microcontrollers achieve the high-speed, precise motor control the printer’s engine requires. The controller supports Ethernet, USB and memory card interfaces for external control, and CAN for internal control. And Cypress’s Standby Reponse Proxy LSI achieves low power consumption.
