2471-POLOLU Vishay TSOP38438 IR Receiver Module, 38kHz
The Vishay TSOP38438 is a general-purpose modulated IR receiver for IR-based remote-control projects. It features a wide operating voltage range of 2.5 V to 5.5 V; this particular unit is tuned for a 38 kHz carrier frequency.
This IR demodulator from Vishay is a general-purpose receiver for IR-based remote-control projects. It is intended as detector for data formats that are modulated at 38 kHz and have at least 10 cycles/burst; popular IR-codes that meet these requirements are NEC, Sharp, and r-step (our Mini IR Remote Control uses NEC encoding, so it works well with the TSOP38438). The module’s output signal can be directly connected to a microcontroller; no additional external components are required.
