As an infrared decoder module, this item can be used to decode signals from any remote control which utilizes NECR protocol. The decoder is a PIC16F690 and features high anti-jamming and low bit-error rate. Powered by either 5V or 3.3V, this module can output signals through either asynchronous serial port or parallel ports so that it can be used in various applications like power control, lighting control, volume control, etc..

Also included is a Small 7-key User-definable Remote Control. This product is user-definable, allowing you to redefine the keys’ functions to realize the remote control to the devices you want, such as volume or power control in amplifier application, movement control of curtains, brightness, color and power control of lights, etc. Use an infrared decoder to receive and transmit the data of the keys to a processor (like PC, MCU) on which you can write new programs to redefine the keys’ functions. The process is made easy by supplying the corresponding hexadecimal of each key.

Decoder Features:

  • Size: 35.70(L) × 28.14(W) × 12.80(H) ±0.2mm
  • Minimized size
  • Supporting NEC encoding format
  • DC5V or DC3.3V supply
  • Two kinds of signal output:
  • Asynchronous serial output
    Parallel output
  • Data from serial port: hexadecimal, address code + command code
  • Excellent design for easy integration in kinds of systems
  • Save resources, shorten development cycle

Remote Features:

  • Size: 110.00(L) × 45.00 (W) ×18.30(H)±0.20mm
  • Compact and durable
  • Black, ABS packaging
  • Powered by two 1.5V AA batteries
  • Long service time: ~3 years
  • Straight transmission distance: 8m
  • Available to use keys 100.000 times
  • Low power consumption
