Data communication rates up to 115.2 kbaud Includes UART-to-IrDA standard bit encoder/decoder functionality Implements the IrDA standard including IrLAP, IrLMP, IAS, TinyTP, and IrCOMM Low power consumption Works with 3.3V and 5V systems
The IrDA PROTO board features the MCP2155 IrDA driver used for implementing IrDA standard wireless connectivity. The driver also handles the IrDA standard protocol stack + bit encoding/decoding. It is used in Data Communication Equipment applications and placed between the UART and an infrared optical transceiver. This board's TFDU4101 diode is an infrared transceiver module compliant with the latest IrDA physical layer standard for fast infrared data communication.
The IrDA PROTO board is ideal for wireless infrared data communication with PC or other devices, remote controls for home appliances, etc. Two jumpers on the board allow you to select between four different baud rates: 9.6k, 19.2k, 57.6k, and 115.2k.
