Description

打印装置的存储芯片 Memory chips of the printing apparatus

技术领域 FIELD

[0001] 本发明涉及打印装置领域,特别涉及一种打印装置的存储芯片及和打印装置的信息交互方法。 [0001] The present invention relates to the field of the printing apparatus, and particularly relates to a method for storing information exchange chip and a printing apparatus and a printing apparatus.

[0002] 背景技术 [0002] BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

[0003] 随着成像技术的发展,类似于激光打印装置和喷墨打印装置之类的成像设备已经得到了广泛的应用。 [0003] With the development of imaging techniques, similar to the laser printing apparatus and an ink jet printing apparatus like the image forming apparatus has been widely used. 在打印过程中,打印装置需要打印信息。 During printing, the printing apparatus needs to print information. 打印装置的打印信息除了记录在打印装置中外,还记录在存储芯片上,如图1所示,图1为现有技术的打印装置和存储芯片之间的通信交互示意图。 Print information recording apparatus in addition to the foreign printing apparatus further recorded on the storage chip, shown in FIG. 1, FIG. 1 is a schematic view of the interactive communication between the printing apparatus and the memory chip of the prior art. 其中,存储芯片固定在墨盒上,该墨盒可以为填充墨水的墨水盒或填充碳粉的硒鼓,存储芯片的作用是控制墨盒和打印装置匹配,及在后续打印过程中打印信息的提供。 Wherein the memory chip is fixed on the role of an ink cartridge filled with ink may be an ink cartridge or toner cartridge is filled, the memory chip is controlled to match the printing apparatus and ink cartridge, and print information in a subsequent printing process. 存储芯片和打印装置通过存储芯片中的通信接口(图中未画出)进行信息交互。 Memory chips and a printing device for information exchange in the memory chip by a communication interface (not shown). 在存储芯片中,记录有关墨盒型号、颜色、记录材料容量、生产日期及制造商代码等墨盒初始信息,及在后续打印过程中得到的表征记录材料容量的数据等打印信息。 In memory chips, data recording and printing information about the initial information ink container cartridge model, the color, the recording capacity of the material, manufacturing date and manufacturer code, etc., and characterization of the recording material obtained in the capacity of the subsequent printing process, and the like.

[0004] 在采用该墨盒第一次打印之前,打印装置通过识别存储芯片的初始信息确定是否使用带有该存储芯片的墨盒进行打印操作,也就是识别存储芯片,打印装置将存储芯片的初始表征记录材料容量的数据读取出来,进行该墨盒的第一次打印并检测记录材料的消耗量,根据初始表征记录材料容量的数据和记录材料的消耗量的数据,计算得到当前的表征记录材料容量的数据并存储在存储芯片中。 [0004] Before using the first print cartridge, the printing apparatus determines whether to use the ink cartridge with a memory chip by an initial printing operation is information for identifying the memory chip, a memory chip is identified, the printing apparatus characterized by an initial memory chip data read out of the recording capacity of the material, the ink cartridge for the first printing and the consumption of the recording material is detected, the data consumption data and initial characterization of a material of the recording material of the recording capacity, the calculated current capacity of the recording material characterized by and data stored in the memory chip.

[0005] 在后续打印过程中,从存储芯片读取所存储的表征记录材料容量的数据,进行打印并检测记录材料的消耗量,根据再次计算得到当前的表征记录材料容量的数据确定是否继续打印,如果是,再次将当前的表征记录材料容量的数据存储在存储芯片内,以进行后续打印时的使用。 [0005] In the subsequent printing process, the recording capacity of the data to characterize the material is read from the memory chip stored, printing and the consumption of the recording material is detected, determines whether to continue the current print data again calculated to characterize the material in accordance with the recording capacity , if it is used again, the current capacity of the recording material characterization data is stored in the memory chip, for subsequent printing.

[0006] 在具体实现上,打印装置在打印过程中估算记录材料的消耗量,如为喷墨打印装置时,检测喷墨口喷出的墨量确定墨水记录材料的消耗量,然后采用设置的记录材料的消耗量和记录材料总量之间的关系,根据从存储芯片读取的表征记录材料容量的数据和检测得到的记录材料的消耗量的数据,计算得到当前的表征记录材料容量的数据,传输给存储芯片保存。 [0006] In a specific implementation, the estimated consumption of the printing apparatus of the recording material during printing, such as ink jet printing apparatus, detecting the amount of ink discharge port discharging ink in the consumption of the recording material is determined and then provided using the relationship between the total amount of consumption of the recording material and the recording material, the recording material consumption based on the data to characterize the material of the recording capacity of the data read from the memory chip and detection obtained, calculated data of the current capacity of the recording material, characterized , transmitted to the memory chip to save. 在打印装置再进行打印操作时,从存储芯片读取出所存储的表征记录材料容量的数据后使用,当根据当前的表征记录材料记录的数据确定记录材料余量不足时,会提醒用户更换具有存储芯片的墨盒或停止打印过程。 When the printing apparatus and then the printing operation, the memory chip is read out from the data used to characterize the material stored in the recording capacity, the recording material is insufficient when it is determined according to the remaining recording data of the current record to characterize the material, will remind the user to replace a memory chip or cartridge stop printing process.

[0007] 目前,墨盒中的存储芯片在使用时都是“一次性的”,即根据存储芯片中存储的表征记录材料容量的数据和当前所检测的记录材料的消耗量的数据确定墨盒所供应的记录材料已经耗尽后,打印装置就不能再使用该存储芯片交互打印信息了,必须更换具有新存储芯片的新墨盒,即使原有墨盒的记录材料可以被再次填充也无法使用该原有的存储芯片存储记录材料容量的当前量(该存储芯片中存储的表征记录材料容量的数据已经表明记录材料容量不足,无法修改,打印装置读取后就无法进行打印)。 [0007] Currently, chips are stored in the cartridge in use "disposable", i.e. the ink cartridge is determined based on the data supplied to characterize the material consumption data recording capacity of the memory chip stored in the recording material and a currently detected after the recording material has been exhausted, the printing apparatus can not use the memory chip of the interactive print information, a new cartridge must be replaced with a new memory chip, even if the original ink container can be filled with the recording material can not be used again, the original the current amount of memory chip storage capacity of the recording material (the recording capacity of the data to characterize the material stored in the memory chip of the recording material has been shown to lack of capacity, can not be modified after the read printing device can not print). 这样,用户不能对使用过的墨盒进行记录材料的填充,当墨盒的记录材料耗尽后就必须丢弃,增大了用户使用打印装置的成本及污染了环境。 Thus, the user can not be used to fill the ink cartridge of the recording material when the recording material after the ink cartridge is exhausted and must be discarded, increasing the cost of the user of the printing apparatus and pollutes the environment. [0008] 另外,在墨盒的存储芯片中除了存储的表征记录记录材料容量的数据作为打印过程中会改变信息外,还有其他会改变信息,比如打印次数等。 [0008] Further, in addition to the ink cartridge memory chip stored in the recording data characterizing the capacity of a material as a printing process in the change information, there are other change information such as the number of prints and the like. 打印装置在打印过程中,也会从存储芯片中读取和存储这些会改变信息,如果打印装置验证当前读取的会改变信息不正确时,就会停止打印。 Printing means will read and store information such change, if the printing apparatus to verify the current reading will change when information is incorrect, it will stop it from the memory chip during printing. 因此,由于这些会改变信息的存在,存储芯片在使用时就是“一次性的”。 Therefore, since these will change exist, the chip information stored in the use is "disposable." 这增大了用户使用使用打印装置的成本及污染了环境。 This increases the cost of using the user uses the printing apparatus and pollutes the environment.

具体实施方式 detailed description

[0058] 为使本发明的目的、技术方案及优点更加清楚明白,以下参照附图并举实施例,对本发明作进一步详细说明。 [0058] To make the objectives, technical solutions and advantages of the present invention will become more apparent, with reference to the accompanying drawings and the following embodiments, the present invention is described in further detail.

[0059] 造成现有技术的墨盒不能重复使用的原因是,无法人为地对存储芯片所存储的表征记录材料容量的数据进行修改。 [0059] The reason the prior art cartridges can not be reused, the data characterizing the recording material can not be artificially capacity memory chip stored modifications. 该存储芯片所存储的表征记录材料容量的数据只能是在打印过程中,由打印装置根据本次从存储芯片读取出的表征记录材料容量的数据以及检测得到的记录材料的消耗量的数据,所计算出的当前的表征记录材料容量的数据。 Characterize the material data recording capacity of the memory chip is stored only in the printing process, the consumption of the recording material obtained by the printing apparatus according to the current capacity of the recording material characterized by reading data out from the memory chip and the detection data , the calculated current data characterizing the capacity of the recording material. 这个当前的表征记录材料容量的数据表示的记录材料容量是逐渐减小的,直到所表示的记录材料容量不足为止,打印装置确认具有该存储芯片的墨盒记录材料容量不足(即使墨盒的记录材料容量充足,打印装置也确认)后,停止打印并提醒用户更换。 Recording capacity of the recording material cartridge capacity of the material characterizing the current capacity of the recording material is data representing gradually reduced, until the lack of capacity of the recording material expressed far confirm the printing apparatus having the memory chip is less than (capacity of the recording material even if the ink cartridge after sufficient, the printing apparatus also confirmed) stop printing and alert the user to replace.

7[0060] 另外,作为除了表征记录材料容量的数据外的会改变信息,也会造成墨盒不能被重复使用,这也是因为无法人为地对存储芯片所存储的会改变信息进行修改。 7 [0060] Further, in addition to the data characterizing the capacity of the recording material will change information, will cause the ink container can not be reused, since it is not artificially alter the information stored in the memory chip to be modified. 因此,在打印过程中,如果打印装置读取的会改变信息表示该墨盒不可用时,就会停止打印并提醒用户更换。 Accordingly, during printing, if the printing apparatus can read the change information indicates when the ink cartridge is not available, it will stop printing and alert the user to replace.

[0061] 因此,本发明为了克服这个问题,提出了在墨盒具有的存储芯片中设置多个会改变信息和对应的不改变信息,该会改变信息表示了多个墨盒在打印过程中和打印装置交互的信息,每一次进行信息交互时,该信息都会改变,包括表征记录材料容量的数据和打印次数等,这多个会改变信息可以相同或不同。 [0061] Accordingly, the present invention is to overcome this problem, a plurality of ink during printing and the printing device having a plurality of cartridges will change information in the memory chip and the corresponding information is not changed, the change information indicating the when the information exchange, each exchange information with the information will change, including data characterizing the recording material and the printing times the capacity and the like, which may change the information of the plurality of the same or different. 该不改变信息在打印过程中信息不改变。 This does not change the information does not change during printing. 在打印过程中,打印装置采用不改变信息和会改变信息识别存储芯片后,读取出所对应的会改变信息后,进行对应的当前的会改变信息在存储芯片的存储和读取,直到所对应的当前的会改变信息表示墨盒无法使用时,再使用存储芯片的另一个会改变信息进行上述处理,直到存储芯片设置的所有会改变信息都被使用完。 During printing, the print means does not change information and changes the identification information memory chips, read after the corresponding change information, information corresponding to the current change in the storing and reading of the memory chip, until the corresponding current will change information represents the ink cartridge can not be used, then use another memory chip will change information for the above-described process, will change until all the information is provided in the memory chip used up.

[0062] 这样,具有本发明提供的存储芯片的墨盒就可以被多次填充记录材料,并多次使用。 [0062] Thus, the ink cartridge having a memory chip provided by the present invention may be filled with a recording material a plurality of times, and repeatedly used.

[0063] 在本发明中,在存储芯片中设置多个会改变信息时,也设置了多个对应的不改变信息,每个会改变信息和对应的不改变信息作为墨盒的初始信息,记录有关墨盒型号、颜色、记录材料容量、生产日期及制造商代码等,用于打印装置通过该不改变信息和会改变信息识别该存储芯片,确定是否使用具有该存储芯片的墨盒进行打印操作。 [0063] In the present invention, a plurality of setting change information is also provided a plurality of non-change information corresponding to each change information and corresponding information without changing the cartridge as initial information recorded in the relevant memory chip cartridge type, the color, the recording capacity of the material, manufacturing date and manufacturer code, etc., used by the printing apparatus does not change information and changes the information for identifying the memory chips, determining whether to use the ink cartridge with the printing operation of the memory chip.

[0064] 另外,在现有技术中墨盒提供商为了吸引用户,推出了很多高容量记录材料的墨盒,即填充的记录材料要高于存储芯片所设置的初始表征记录材料容量的数据所表示的标准记录材料容量,目的是使用户可以进行更多打印,降低使用打印装置的成本。 [0064] Further, in the prior art ink cartridge provider to attract users, the introduction of a number of high-capacity recording material of the cartridge, i.e., higher than the filling material of the recording data of the initial capacity of the recording material characterized by memory chip set represented standard capacity of the recording material, the purpose is to enable more users can print to reduce the cost of using the printing apparatus. 但是,由于墨盒的存储芯片是由打印装置提供商提供的,其存储的初始表征记录材料容量的数据表示的还是标准记录材料容量,所以在打印过程中,即使墨盒仍然有记录材料,也因为存储芯片所存储的表征记录材料的数据表示记录材料余量不足而停止打印,并提醒用户更换墨盒。 However, since the ink cartridge memory chip is provided by the printing apparatus provider, or a standard initial characterization data recording capacity of the recording material represents a material in which capacity of storage, so that in the printing process, even if the ink cartridge still has a recording material, but also because storage data characterizing the recording material stored in the chip indicates insufficient remaining amount of the recording material stops printing, and remind users to replace the ink cartridge. 这即不能实现墨盒提供商吸引用户的要求,还造成了记录材料的浪费,不利于环保。 That this can not be achieved cartridges provider to attract the user's requirements, but also resulted in a waste of the recording material is not conducive to environmental protection.

[0065] 本发明也可以克服上述问题,只要在存储芯片上设置会改变信息中的初始表征记录材料容量的数据时,该数据所表示的为墨盒实际的记录材料容量即可,从而不会造成记录材料的浪费,利于环保。 When [0065] the present invention may overcome the above problems, as long as the memory chip provided on the initial characterization of the material will change the data in the information recording capacity, the data is represented by an actual ink cartridge to the recording capacity of the material, so as not to cause recording material waste, environmentally friendly.

[0066] 为了简要说明,本发明以表征记录材料容量的数据作为会改变信息为例,对本发明提供的方法、系统及装置进行详细说明。 [0066] For a brief description, the present invention is characterized by the data capacity of the recording material will change information as an example, the present invention provides a method, system and apparatus in detail.

[0069] 在该步骤之前,打印装置还读取了对应的不改变信息,用于和会改变信息一起识别该存储芯片; [0069] Prior to this step, the printing apparatus also reads the change information does not correspond to, and changes the information for identifying the memory chip together;

[0070] 步骤202、打印装置实时判断从存储芯片所读取的当前的表征记录材料容量的数据是否表示记录材料容量不足,如果是,则执行步骤203 ;如果否,则执行步骤204 ; [0070] Step 202, the printing apparatus determines whether the real-time data of the current record to characterize the material capacity read from the memory chip indicates insufficient capacity of the recording material, if so, step 203 is performed; if not, step 204 is performed;

[0071] 在该步骤中,如何判断为现有技术,这里不再累述。 [0071] In this step, it is determined how the prior art, there is no longer tired. [0072] 步骤203、打印装置读取所设置的另一个初始表征记录材料容量的数据后,在打印过程中进行对应的当前的表征记录材料容量的数据在存储芯片的存储和读取,转入步骤202执行,直到所设置的所有初始表征记录材料容量的数据都被读取完为止; [0072] Step 203, an initial characterization of the other printing apparatus to read the data after the set recording capacity of the material, a current corresponding to the data to characterize the material is recorded in the storage capacity of the memory chips and reading, in the transfer printing process performing step 202, all the data characterizing the initial capacity of the recording material until the set have been scanned and the date;

[0073] 在该步骤之前,打印装置还读取了对应的不改变信息,用于和会改变信息一起识别该存储芯片; [0073] Prior to this step, the printing apparatus also reads the change information does not correspond to, and changes the information for identifying the memory chip together;

[0074] 步骤204 ;转入步骤202继续打印和判断。 [0074] Step 204; proceeds to step 202 and determines to continue printing.

[0075] 在该方法中,存储多个初始表征记录材料容量的数据有多种方式,比如:将多个初始表征记录材料容量的数据分别存储在不同的存储单元中;或者存储主被用的初始表征记录材料容量的数据,当主用的初始表征记录材料容量的数据使用后,再采用备用的初始表征记录材料容量的数据更新主用的初始表征记录材料容量的数据。 [0075] In this method, a plurality of initial storage capacity of the recording data to characterize the material a number of ways, such as: the plurality of initial data recording capacity to characterize the material are stored in a different storage unit; to be used or stored in the primary the initial characterization data capacity of the recording material, the recording material after the initial characterization of the primary data volume used, and then using data of the initial capacity of the recording material characterization data updates the initial characterization of the primary spare capacity of the recording material used.

[0076] 本发明在具体实现上,采用了三种实现方式,以下分别进行详细说明。 [0076] The present invention is embodied in, using the three ways, described in detail hereinafter.
