USB Host stack inside..
Microchip have just develope an Example of driver that work on microprocessor bu is compatible with printer :

According to the HP specifications, the print languages supported by the two devices are:
- Deskjet 1000: HP PCL 3 GUI
- Deskjet 460: HP PCL Level 3 enhanced
I'm not sure what differences there are between these two Page Description Languages.
... and I don't think that HP publish details of these PDLs (although they do for PCL5 and PCL XL, as used on (most ) LaserJet printers); i thought that they were both raster-based graphics languages.
