Vishay Intertechnology has pioneered two new series of miniature infrared (IR) receiver modules for IR remote control applications.
Devices in the Vishay Semiconductors TSOP95xxx and TSOP96xxx series deliver improved dark-ambient and disturbed-ambient sensitivity to infrared signals, better suppression of RF noise, and excellent pulse-width accuracy.
The receivers introduced recently are designed for IR remote control including:
- Set-Top Boxes (STBs)
- Audio Systems
- Air Conditioners
- Video Projectors
- Video Game Systems
The Key Features of the IR Receivers include:
- Pre-Amplifier Circuit
- IR Filter In A Single 4-Pin Epoxy Heimdall (TSOP95xxx) Or Panhead (TSOP96xxx) Package
- Carrier Frequencies From 30 Khz To 56 Khz
- Five Automatic Gain Control (AGC) Versions For Short And Long Burst Codes.
- Low Supply Voltage From 2.0 V To 3.6 V
- Supply Current Of 0.37 Ma.
- Vishay Green
The devices provide increased robustness against disturbances such as IR emissions from CFL lamps and RF emissions from onboard Wi-Fi antennas. In addition, the modules’ improved pulse-width accuracy allows lower bit error rates for almost any code, and the devices are insensitive to supply voltage variations and ripple noise.
Samples and production quantities of the new IR receiver modules are available now, with lead times of four to six weeks.
