IR Communication Between Devices


#1

I have been looking at IR communication as an inexpensive way to achieve line of sight communication. I found some good code in codeshare which I drew upon: https://www.ghielectronics.com/community/codeshare/entry/401 and
https://www.ghielectronics.com/community/codeshare/entry/779
I did not find any information about components and until I had successful communication I was really unsure about whether or not I had hardware that would work. I thought I would provide this information to help others like me.
I got these items from Digi-Key. Receiver: TSOP34836-ND Led: LTE-4208
These components function together. The receiver worked with all my Sony remotes.
