Programmable IR Receiver

Programmable IR Receiver


Simerec’s SIS-2 programmable infrared receiver chip seems a quick solution for adding IR control to electronics projects –

The SIS-2 monitors an IR receiver, and when a certain remote code is detected, an output pin will toggle. Two outputs are available and any code on any remote can be taught to the SIS-2. This makes it simple to implement an infrared (IR) remote controllable switching solution for a wide variety of applications. When used with an inexpensive IR receiver module, the SIS-2 recognizes IR signals from 2 independent IR remote control sources, and provides 2 modes of switching for your application.

Making those universal remotes a bit more ‘universal’. (considering using one of these to reset my cable modem/router from afar) – SIS-2 on Sparkfun

    Hmmm. My guess is that this is just a PIC12F629 programmed to decode the IR signal. There was a article in Make Vol. 5 about using IR remotes in your projects.

    I’m wondering if it is a PIC12F or ATTINY.

    Personally, I’d rather use the MCU with a nice little IR library. With this thing, you need to stick on a second MCU which seems pretty redundant.
