Vishay Intertechnology's newest infrared receiver modules come in a new Minicast package type that delivers high EMI immunity and a high-precision band filter.
There are eight new series, all designed as drop-in replacements for standard small-size modules in remote control applications for consumer electronics, computer, air conditioning, game console, and industrial systems.
The new package type provides improved filtering of noise signalsfrom sources such as fluorescent lightingfor optimal noise immunity.
Each Minicast device includes a photo detector and preamplifier circuit, mounted within a 3-pin epoxy-encapsulated module with an integrated semi-cylindrical lens. The new devices are available in 3-V and 5-V versions using carrier frequencies from 30 kHz to 56 kHz.
As the leading provider of IR receiver module solutions, Vishay offers several AGC-parameterized versions of its Minicast modules to provide optimal performance for any code type in any optical environment.
Samples and production quantities of Minicast IR receiver modules are available now, with lead times of four weeks for large orders . Pricing for U.S. delivery only is $0.24/each.
