Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0024584A1] Droplet deposition apparatus comprises a fluid chamber comprising an actuator actuable by electrical signals to effect ejection of droplets from the fluid chamber, a drive circuit for supplying the electrical signals; and a conduit for supplying droplet fluid to said fluid chamber, the drive circuit being in substantial thermal contact with the conduit so as to transfer a substantial part of the heat generated in the drive circuit to the droplet fluid.
