Micro-printers are commonly used in various industries such as financial sectors, retail, food services, lottery, transportation, gas stations, and medical and hygiene services. Heat sensitive micro-printers use heat to change the color of heat sensitive media coated on the printing paper.

This solution is an 80mm thermal printer printer that employs IPI 800932 print heads and an automatic paper cutter. This printer has a wide range of applications and can be used to print various receipts and invoices for POS systems, cashiers, and ATM.

This solution utilizes the NUC505 series and is capable of reaching a printing speed of 150mm per second. It supports multiple transmission methods, including Bluetooth, serial ports, network ports, USB printer class, and so on, and supports Ethernet data communication and data transmission. This solution is also furnished with out-of-paper detection and overheating protection circuits. Reference source codes are also provided to facilitate secondary development by customers.

The following diagram illustrates the system architecture:

  • The NUC505 series has a clock speed up to 100MHz and comes with an embedded 128 Kbytes SRAM and USB 2.0 Full-speed Device.
  • Flexible applications with multiple data transmission methods as well as rapid printing speed up to 150 mm/sec.
