General Description:

Use this simple IR receiver module for infrared remote control of your next project. With low power consumption and an easy to use package, it mates well with embedded electronics and can be used with common IR remotes. It is a miniaturized receiver for infrared remote control systems with the high speed PIN phototransistor and the full wave band preamplifier. The PIN diode and preamplifier are assembled on lead frame, the epoxy package is designed as an IR filter. The demodulated output signal can be directly decoded by a microprocessor. The VS1838B is compatible with all common IR remote control data formats and is the standard IR remote control receiver series, supporting all major transmission codes.


On-board VS1838B high sensitivity infrared receiving head
Support 3-5 v input voltage
On-board RC filter, work more stable
