Thermal print heads are finding widespread application in equipment as diverse as pocket calculators, chart recorders, and computer page printers. The use of thick film resistors to mark paper is one of the more common techniques and the design problems and performance available from such heads are the subject of this paper. Future developments of the technology are also discussed.
