The SIRComm SIR2 Infrared Communications Receiver from Irvine Sensors (Costa Mesa, CA) enables infrared (IR) point-to-point wireless communications between computers and other devices. The dual-voltage, ultralow-power analog IC is compliant with the current Infrared Data Association (IrDA) standard and operates at either 3.3 or 5 V, over a wide input dynamic range. It supports data rates from 2400 to the IrDA maximum of 115.2 kilobits per second over a 0-1-meter range. The chi¥can pick u¥the signal from IrDA-compatible photodiodes and can interface directly to IrDA-compatible Super I/O devices. The industry response to the product since its introduction in August 1994 has prompted Irvine Sensors to spin out a subsidiary--NOVALOG--to continue development of IR wireless products.
