English term or phrase:strobed hex inverter
The printer is mounted above the CPU board on a small metal bracket and is connected P15 on the board via a fifteen-conductor flat ribbon cable. All timing and dot matrix information is controlled by the CPU's program. The printer motor is powered by a 5-volt DC regulator which is switched on and off by the CPU via a TIP32 transistor. Parallel drivers provide dynamic braking of the motor whenever the motor power is turned off.
Data to be printed is output via CPU I/O port 0 in the active low state. A strobed hex inverter is used to pulse the data to the 5-volt printer solenoids which require 3 amps of current when energized. The solenoids are powered from the 14 volt DC supply, which is set up to emulate the energy usage required by the solenoids.
