Microcontrollers for Multi-function Printers | Cypress Semiconductor
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.
- Standby Response Proxy LSI low power consumption solution
When multi-function printer is connected with an ethernet, this solution realizes low power consumption at the standby state using Standby Response Proxy LSI "MB86C36".
- FM4 family graphics solution
FM4 family MCU realizes graphics for auto, consumer electronics, home appliances and industrial.
This application is an example of applying the 32-bit Cypress FM family of Arm® Cortex®-M0+, M3 and M4 microcontrollers and the Cypress’s Standby Response Proxy LSI in multi-function printer and fax machines.
