Print head control
Operation from reading print data to driving the pin magnet is as follows (Figure 5.30):
Print data is read from line buffer RAM.
Data is sent to the HDLSI(MBCU20050), being set to high for dots to be printed.
Excitation and flyback absorption timers are in the HDLSI.
Print data and excitation time are ANDed and, the result is output by the HDLSI, then the print head drive
transistor is turned on.
