In some high‐speed print modes, it has been found that a warming pulse applied to a nozzle can have detrimental effects
on drop qualities ejected from that nozzle on subsequent firing. Simple logic is described which can shift a warming pulse from
being applied to a first nozzle to a neighboring second nozzle, thus preventing the detrimental effects on drop quality on drops
ejected from the first nozzle on subsequent firing. This logic requires minimal die area (low‐cost) and can operate autonomously so
that no integration with print system data path is required.
