Add wireless communication functionality using infrared waves to your device by using the IrDA PROTO Board. This additional board comes equipped with an MCP2155 IrDA driver that is used for implementing IrDA standard wireless connectivity. It also provides IrDA protocol handling PLUS bit encoding/decoding functionality for Data Communication Equipment (DCE) applications. It is placed between the UART and the infrared optical transceiver. The TFDU4101 diode aboard the IrDA PROTO Board is an infrared transceiver module. This module is designed to be compliant with the latest IrDA physical layer standard for fast infrared data communication.
The IrDA PROTO Board is an ideal choice for wireless infrared data communication with personal computers, remote controllers for home appliances, etc.
