Add infrared communication feature to the device with the IrDA2 Click Board™ from MikroE! Whether the user is switching a channel on a TV or sending a command to the air conditioner through a remote, it involves infrared transceivers. The IrDA2 Click Board™ is an add-on communication board that employs a TFDU4101 infrared transceiver module, compliant with the latest IrDA physical layer standard designed for high-speed infrared data communication.
The board also features an MCP2120 infrared encoder/decoder connected with the 7.3728 MHz external crystal. Positioned between the UART and infrared (IR) optical transceiver, the MCP2120 module performs the modulation and demodulation method in accordance with the IrDA standard. IrDA2 Click Board™ uses the UART interface to communicate with the target board microcontroller. Using an SMD jumper, the user can also select to choose between a 3.3V or 5V power supply. The onboard LED diode (green) indicates the power supply status.
With all these features, IrDA2 Click Board™ is for TV and video systems, computers and PDAs, printers, fax machines, photocopiers, external infrared adapters, diagnostic systems, data loggers, and other industrial applications.
