背景技术 Background technique

喷墨打印机是常见的打印设备,为现代化办公提供了极大的方便。 Inkjet printers are common printing equipment, providing great convenience for the modern office. 现有的喷墨打印机大多使用可拆卸的墨盒装载打印使用的墨水,现有的墨盒结构如图1所示,图1也是本发明墨盒的结构示意图。 Most conventional inkjet printers use ink cartridge is detachably loaded ink used for printing, the structure of the conventional ink cartridge shown in FIG. 1, FIG. 1 is a schematic view of an ink cartridge according to the present invention. 现有的墨盒包括壳体1,壳体1围成腔体2,腔体2内容纳有墨水。 Conventional ink cartridge comprises a housing 1, the housing 1 surrounded by the cavity 2, the chamber 2 accommodates ink. 在壳体1的下方设有出墨口3,腔体2内的墨水可通过出墨口3供给打印机。 Below the housing 1 is provided with the printer ink outlet of the ink supply port 3 3, in the ink chamber 2 through the.

墨盒壳体1的一个侧壁上安装有芯片10,芯片10的外观结构如图2 所示。 Chip mounted appearance of the structure 10, the chip 10 shown in Figure 2 on a side wall of the housing 1 of the cartridge. 现有的芯片10包括一基板20,在基板20上设置有电子模块11, 在电子模块11的下方设有多个触点21,这些触点21均与电子模块11电连接。 Existing chip 10 includes a substrate 20, disposed on the substrate 20 with an electronic module 11, at the bottom of the electronic module 11 is provided with a plurality of contacts 21, the contacts 21 are electrically connected to the electronic module 11. 电子模块11中存储有墨盒相关的信息,如墨盒型号、墨水颜色、墨盒中墨水剩余量数据等信息。 The electronic module 11 stores information related to cartridges, such as cartridge type, ink color, ink in the ink remaining amount data and other information. 当墨盒装入喷墨打印机后,喷墨打印机即读取存储在电子模块11中的信息,并判断该墨盒是否适用于该喷墨打印机,同时判断墨盒中是否有充足的墨水,只有喷墨打印机判断墨盒适用且存储有充足的墨水时,喷墨打印机才进行打印工作。 When the ink container into the ink jet printer, an ink jet printer that is reading information stored in the electronic module 11, and determines whether the ink cartridge is suitable for the ink jet printer, and determines whether there is sufficient ink in the ink container, the ink jet printer is only Analyzing the ink cartridge stores a sufficient and suitable for ink jet printer work before printing.

现有的部分墨盒芯片的电子模块记录的墨水剩余量数据是由喷墨打印机控制的,喷墨打印机每次打印前,先读取电子模块中存储的墨水剩余量数据,并根据每次打印纸张的类型、打印纸张的数量来计算消耗的墨水量,然后将原来的墨水剩余量减去该次打印消耗的墨水量计算当前墨盒中的墨水剩余量,最后将该墨水剩余量数据写回电子模块中。 Ink remaining amount of the data portion of the conventional ink cartridge chip electronic recording module is controlled by the inkjet printer, an inkjet printer before each print, the amount of ink remaining first read data stored in the electronic module, and in accordance with each of the print paper type, number of printed sheets calculated amount of ink consumed, then the original amount of ink remaining ink by subtracting the amount of time consumed print cartridge ink remaining amount is calculated in the current, the last write data back to the ink remaining amount of the electronic module in.

由于这种计算往往并不能正确反映墨水的实际消耗量,常导致电子模块中存储墨水剩余量数据显示为零时,墨盒中还存储有较多墨水的情况发生。 Because this calculation is often does not accurately reflect the actual consumption of the ink, often resulting in an electronic memory module data when the ink remaining amount is zero, the case is also stored in the ink cartridge more ink occurs. 而用户往往会认为墨盒中已无墨水,将墨盒扔弃,不但造成浪费,还可能会造成环境污染。 And users tend to consider no longer ink cartridges, ink cartridges discarded, not only wasteful, but also may cause environmental pollution.

因此,公告号为CN1157296C的中国发明专利公开了名为"一种智能墨盒及其制造方法和专用电子模块"的发明创造。 Therefore, the announcement No. CN1157296C the Chinese invention patent discloses an invention entitled "An intelligent ink cartridges and method of manufacturing electronic modules and special" creation. 该专利文献中公开的智能墨盒中设置有一电子模块,该电子模块中包括有微控制器,该微控制器包括运算器、EEPROM存储器和快速闪存,其中EEPROM存储器存储有墨盒识别信息和墨水剩余量数据信息,快速闪存中存储有控制墨水剩余量数据运算和读写的程序。 Smart cartridge disclosed in this patent document is provided with an electronic module, the electronic module includes a microcontroller, the microcontroller includes an arithmetic unit, and the fast flash EEPROM memory, EEPROM memory which stores identification information of ink cartridge and the ink remaining amount data, stored in fast flash control operation and the ink remaining amount of data read and write procedures. 当每次喷墨打印机将墨水剩余量数据写回电子模块时,存储在快速闪存的程序对墨水剩余量数据进行运算,以改变电子模块存储的墨水剩余量数据,从而实现提高墨水容量的目的。 Each time when the remaining amount of ink jet printer to write data back to the electronic module, stored in fast flash program data operation of the ink remaining amount, in order to change the ink remaining amount of data stored in the electronic module to achieve the purpose of improving the capacity of the ink.

但是,由于现有纟敬控制器的EEPROM存储器存储容量较小,而快速闪存的存储容量较大,将墨盒识别信息写在EEPROM存储器中将占用EEPROM 存储器有限的存储空间。 However, since the conventional EEPROM memory storage capacity smaller Si respect controller, and fast flash storage capacity is large, the ink container identification information written in the EEPROM memory occupied by the EEPROM memory storage space is limited. 并且,存储在EEPROM存储器中的数据可在较低的电压下,如2至5伏,即被擦除,若将墨盒识别信息写入到EEPROM存储器中,容易导致墨盒识别信息被错误擦除,将导致喷墨打印机无法识别墨盒,不能进行正常工作。 Also, the data stored in the EEPROM memory may be at a lower voltage, such as 2-5 volts, is erased, if the identification information is written into the cartridge EEPROM memory, easily lead to cartridge identification information is erroneously erased, will result in the inkjet printer does not recognize the cartridge and can not operate normally.

本发明的再一目的是提供一种制造上述墨盒的方法。 A further object of the present invention is to provide a method for manufacturing the above ink cartridge.

为了实现上述主要目的,本发明提供的芯片包括基板,在基板上设置有触点和与这些触点电连接的电子模块,该电子模块中有一个微控制器,该微控制器包括有控制单元、EEPROM存储器以及快速闪存,其中, EEPROM存储器存储有墨水剩余量数据,快速闪存中存储有墨盒识别信息以及控制墨水剩余量数据运算和读写的程序。 To achieve the above main object, the present invention provides a chip comprising a substrate provided with contacts on the substrate and the contacts electrically connected to the electronic module, the electronic module has a microcontroller, the microcontroller includes a control unit , EEPROM memory, flash memory and fast, wherein, EEPROM memory stores the ink remaining amount data, fast flash cartridge identification information stored in the control and the ink remaining amount computing and data read and write procedures.

由于存储在快速闪存中的数据不易被擦除,因此将墨盒识别信息存储在快速闪存中,即使微控制器运行时错误将存储在EEPROM存储器中的数据擦除,也不影响墨盒识别信息,能确保电子模块与喷墨打印机的正常通信。 Because flash memory is stored in the fast data is not easily erased, thus the ink cartridge identification information stored in the fast flash, even if the microcontroller run-time error data stored in the EEPROM memory erased, does not affect the ink container identification information, can ensure proper communication with the electronic module of the inkjet printer.

为了实现上述的另一目的,本发明提供的墨盒包括壳体和由该壳体围成腔体,腔体中容纳有墨水。 In order to achieve another object described above, the present invention provides an ink cartridge comprising a housing and surrounded by the housing into a cavity, the cavity containing the ink. 在壳体的下方设有出墨口,并在壳体的一个侧壁上安装有芯片,该芯片包括基板,在基板上设置有触点和与这些触点电连接的电子模块,该电子模块中有一个微控制器,该微控制器包括有控制单元、EEPROM存储器以及快速闪存,其中,EEPROM存储器存 Below the housing is provided with an ink outlet, and the chip is mounted on a sidewall of the housing, the chip includes a substrate, an electronic module is provided with contacts and electrically connected to these contacts on a substrate, the electronic module in a microcontroller, the microcontroller comprising a control unit, EEPROM memory, flash memory and fast, wherein, EEPROM memory is

具体实施方式 detailed description

本发明的墨盒包括壳体,该壳体围成一个腔体,在腔体中容纳有喷墨打印机打印时使用的墨水。 The present invention includes a cartridge housing which encloses a cavity, the cavity is accommodated in an ink jet printer used for printing. 在壳体的下方设有出墨口,容纳在腔体内的墨水可通过出墨口提供给喷墨打印机。 A housing provided below the ink outlet, the ink accommodated in the cavity may be provided by an ink outlet to the ink jet printer. 在壳体的一个侧壁上安装有芯片,该芯片包括一基板,基板上设置多个可与喷墨打印机实现电连接的触点,并在基板上设置有与触点电连接的电子模块。 On the sidewall of the housing is mounted a chip that includes a substrate, a plurality of electrical contacts can be connected to the ink jet printer on a substrate, and provided with an electronic module electrically connected to the contacts on the substrate. 根据本发明的墨盒、芯片的上述结构均与现有墨盒及安装在墨盒上的现有芯片相同,在此不再赘述。 Both prior and existing cartridge chip is mounted on the ink cartridge in the same ink cartridge according to the structure of the chip according to the present invention, it is not repeated here.

参见图3,图3是反映本发明芯片实施例中电子模块的结构示意框图,当安有芯片的墨盒装入喷墨打印机时,该电子模块与喷墨打印机内的本体控制器实现电连接。 Referring to FIG. 3, FIG. 3 is a schematic block diagram showing a structure of the reflecting electronic chip module embodiment of the present invention, when the security of the chip cartridge in an inkjet printer, the electronic controller within the module body and electrically connected inkjet printer. 由图3中可见,喷墨打印4几30内设有本体控制器31,本体控制器31用于与电子模块11进行通信。 It is seen from Figure 3, the ink jet printing several 30 4 equipped with a body controller 31, a body controller 31 for communicating with the electronic module 11.

电子模块11内设有微控制器12,微控制器12包括有控制单元13、 EEPROM存储器15以及快速闪存16。 The electronic module 11 features a microcontroller 12, the microcontroller 12 includes a control unit 13, EEPROM, and flash memory 15, flash memory 16. 其中,控制单元13与本体控制器31 进行通信,并根据本体控制器31发出的命令进行相应的操作。 Wherein the control unit 13 communicates with the body controller 31, and the corresponding operation according to a command issued by the controller body 31. EEPR0M存储器15存储有墨盒中墨水剩余量数据,若墨盒为全新的,则墨水剩余量数据为100%。 EEPR0M memory 15 stores the remaining data amount of ink in the ink, when the ink cartridge is new, the remaining quantity data of the ink is 100%. 随着墨水的消耗,墨水剩余量数据将随之减少。 With the consumption of the ink, the ink remaining amount of data to be reduced.

本实施例中,凝t控制器12的快速闪存16存储有墨盒识别信息,这些信息包括墨盒型号、墨盒中存储墨水的颜色、墨盒的生产日期等信息,这些信息不会随墨水的消耗而改变,因此,可以存储在快速闪存16 中。 In this embodiment, the controller fast flash condensate t 12 ink cartridge 16 stores identification information, which comprises information model cartridge, color ink cartridge storing ink, an ink cartridge manufacturing date, this information does not change with the consumption of ink therefore, it can be stored in fast flash memory 16. 由于存储在快速闪存16中的数据不易^皮擦除, 一旦写入后,不易被修改或丢失。 Because the data stored in the flash memory 16 is less likely to flash ^ erase skin, once written, can not easily be modified or lost. 因此,将墨盒识别信息写入到快速闪存16中,可有效避免这些信息被错误擦除,保证墨盒与喷墨打印机之间的正常通信。 Thus, the ink cartridge identification information is written in the flash memory 16 to flash, which can effectively prevent the information from being erroneously erased, to ensure normal communication between the ink container and the ink jet printer. 同时, 由于墨盒识别信息不会随墨水的消耗而改变,将其写入到快速闪存16中并不会影响墨盒与喷墨打印机的通信。 Meanwhile, since the ink container identification information does not change with the consumption of ink, it is written to the flash memory that does not affect the ink container 16 and the inkjet printer communication.

在快速闪存16中还存^f渚有控制墨水剩余量数据运算和读写程序,该程序用于控制墨水剩余量数据的运算。 In the fast flash memory 16 is also controlled ^ f For the ink remaining amount data calculation and write procedures, the program for controlling the operation of the ink remaining amount data. 当本体控制器31将墨水剩余量数据写入EEPR0M存储器15时,该程序对写入的墨水剩余量数据进行运算,将写入的墨水剩余量lt据增大。 When the main body controller 31 to the ink remaining amount of data written EEPR0M memory 15, the program of the ink remaining amount data writing operation performed, the remaining quantity of ink lt written data increases.

当墨盒初次安装到喷墨打印机30上时,本体控制器31将读取存储在微控制器12快速闪存16中的墨盒识别信息,并判断墨盒是否适用于该喷墨打印机30。 When the ink cartridge is mounted to the first ink jet printer 30, the controller 31 reads the cartridge body identification information stored in the microcontroller 12 Flash memory 16 quickly, and determines whether the ink cartridge to the ink jet printer 30 applies. 若墨盒适用,再读取存储在EEPROM存储器15的墨水剩余量数据。 When the ink container applicable, re-read data stored in the remaining amount of ink in the EEPROM memory 15. 由于该墨盒为全新的墨盒,则墨水剩余量数据为100%。 Since the new ink cartridge is the ink cartridge, the ink remaining data amount is 100%. 喷墨打印机读取该数据后进行打印工作,并计算墨水的消耗量。 After the printing work of the ink jet printer reads the data, and calculates the consumption amount of the ink. 打印结束后,本体控制器31计算墨盒中当前的墨水剩余量,如80%,并将该墨水剩余量的数据写入EEPR0M存储器15中。 After printing, the controller 31 calculates the ink container body of the ink remaining amount in the current, such as 80%, and the remaining quantity of ink is written into the data memory 15 EEPR0M.

当控制单元13判断本体控制器31需要写入墨水剩余量数据值时, 应用存储在快速闪存16中的程序对其进行运算,使其值增大。 When the control unit 13 determines the body controller 31 requires writing ink remaining data amount value, the program application is stored in flash memory 16 in its rapid calculates, its value is increased. 例如,本体控制器31需要向EEPROM存储器15写入墨水剩余量数据,该数据值为80%,应该程序进行运算后,墨水剩余量数据值可增大为82%,这样使EEPROM存储器15存储的墨水剩余量数据值变大。 For example, the body controller 31 to be written to the EEPROM memory 15 of the ink remaining amount data, which is 80%, after the program operation should be, the ink remaining amount data value may be increased to 82%, so that the EEPROM memory 15 stores the ink remaining amount data value becomes large. 然后,控制单元13将该数据存储到EEPR0M存储器15中,使EEPR0M存储器15存储的墨水剩余量数据值为82%。 Then, the control unit 13 the data stored in the memory 15 EEPR0M, the amount of ink remaining data is stored in the memory 15 EEPR0M 82%. 当本体控制器31再次读:f又墨水剩余量数据时,即认为墨盒中的墨水剩余量为82%,而不是80%。 When the main body controller 31 reads again: f and the ink remaining amount data, i.e. that the remaining amount of ink in the ink was 82% instead of 80%.

当喷墨打印机30重新启动时,本体控制器31再次读取墨盒识别信息、墨水剩余量数据等。 When the ink jet printer 30 restarts, the controller 31 reads ink container body identification information again, the amount of ink remaining data. 此时,微控制器12将存储在快速闪存16中的墨盒识别信息及存储在EEPR0M存储器15中的墨水剩余量数据送出。 At this time, the microcontroller 12 and the ink container identification information is stored in flash memory 16 is stored in the fast feeding of the ink remaining amount in the data memory 15 EEPR0M. 由于墨盒识别信息不会随墨水的消耗而改变,因此每次喷墨打印机30读取的墨盒识别信息都是相同的,因此,将墨盒识别信息存储在快速闪存16 中,即可确保墨盒识别信息不易被擦除,从而保证墨盒与喷墨打印机30 之间的正常通信,有可效避免因墨盒识别信息被错误擦除而导致喷墨打印机30无法正常工作的情况发生。 Since the ink container identification information does not change with the consumption of ink, the ink cartridge each time the ink jet printer 30 reads the identification information are the same, and therefore, the ink container identification information stored in the flash memory 16 quickly, to ensure that the ink container identification information is not easily erased, so as to ensure normal communication between the ink cartridge and the inkjet printer 30, there may be effective to avoid erroneous ink container identification information is erased and lead to the ink jet printer 30 does not work occurs.

下面介绍这种墨盒的制造方法。 The following describes a method of manufacturing such an ink cartridge. 参见图4,图4是本发明墨盒制造方法实施例的流程图。 Referring to FIG. 4, FIG. 4 is a flowchart of an embodiment of ink container manufacturing method of the present invention. 首先制造墨盒的盒体(步骤Sl),包括制造壳体以及在壳体下方的出墨口,同时在壳体相应的位置上安装诸如空气止回阀、密封件等部件。 First, manufacturing of the ink container cartridge (step Sl is), and comprising a housing manufactured in the ink outlet below the housing, while the mounting member, such as air check valve, seal or the like at the corresponding position on the housing.

然后生产电子模块。 Then the production of electronic modules. 生产电子模块时,首先选择适当的微控制器, 如采用RISC结构的CMOS 8位微控制器,并将墨盒识别信息写入到快速闪存中,同时将控制墨水剩余量数据运算和读写程序也写入到快速闪存中(步骤S2)。 When the production of electronic modules, first select the appropriate microcontroller, such as the use CMOS RISC configuration of 8-bit microcontroller, and the ink container identification information is written to flash quickly, while controlling the amount of ink remaining program can also read and write data operations rapid flash write (step S2). 这样快速闪存同时存储有墨盒识别信息和程序。 Such fast flash while the ink container identification information is stored and a program.

接着,将墨水剩余量数据的初始值,即100%写入到EEPR0M存储器中(步骤S3),这样便将电子模块需要存储的数据写入到电子模块中。 Subsequently, the initial value of the ink remaining amount of data, i.e., 100% EEPR0M written into the memory (step S3), the write data needs to be stored so that the electronic module is put into the electronic module.

然后,将电子模块和触点焊接在基板上,并使电子模块与触点的电连接(步骤S4),这样即完成芯片的生产。 Then, the electronic module and the contacts soldered on a substrate, and the electronic module is electrically connected with the contacts (step S4), to complete the production of such chips. 最后,将芯片安装到壳体的一个侧壁上(步骤S5),即完成墨盒的制造。 Finally, the chip is mounted on a sidewall of the housing (step S5), i.e. completing the manufacture of the ink cartridge.

由此可见,在生产电子模块的过程中,是将墨盒识别信息写入到快速闪存中,而不是写入到EEPROM存储器中。 Thus, during the production of the electronic module, cartridge identification information is written into the flash memory quickly, but not written into the EEPROM memory. 这样,不但可以减少占用EEPROM存储器的空间,还有效防止墨盒识别信息被错误擦除,从而避免因喷墨打印机与墨盒无法正常通信而导致喷墨打印机不能正常工作。 Thus, not only can reduce the space occupied EEPROM memory, but also prevent the ink container identification information is erroneously erased, thereby avoiding due to the inkjet printer can not communicate with the ink caused by the ink jet printer does not work.

当然,本发明制造墨盒方法的步骤不限于实施例中各步骤的顺序, 实际制造过程中,制造墨盒的盒体与芯片可同时进行,也可以是先生产芯片再制造墨盒的盒体。 Of course, the ink container manufacturing steps of the method of the present invention is not limited to the order of the steps in the embodiment, the actual manufacturing process, the manufacturing of the cartridge case and the chip can be performed simultaneously, may be remanufactured cartridge to produce cartridge chip. 而生产电子模块时,不管先写入哪一数据均不影响本发明的实施,生产时可根据实际情况随时调整生产的步骤。 While the production of electronic modules, regardless of what data is written first embodiment of the present invention do not affect, the production steps can be adjusted according to actual production.

另外,本发明的芯片不限于安装在喷墨打印机上的墨盒芯片,还可以是安装在激光打印机上的碳粉盒芯片等。 Further, the present invention is not limited to a chip cartridge chip mounted on the inkjet printer, it may also be mounted on the laser printer toner cartridge chip.

最后需要强调的是,本发明不限于上述实施方式,诸如控制墨水剩余量数据运算和读取程序使用的运算方法的改变、EEPROM存储器与快速闪存存储空间大小的改变等微小变化,也应该包括在本发明权利要求的保护范围内。 Finally, it should be emphasized that the invention is not limited to the above embodiment, such as control change ink remaining amount arithmetic operation method and data used by the program read, small changes in the changed fast flash EEPROM memory storage space, and the like, it should also be included in the within the scope of the claims of the invention.
