TIR1000: Is TIR1000 compatible / support for TV remote (Consumer IR protocol)

Part Number: TIR1000

My customer would like to study TIR1000 for IR Blaster function implementation.

Currently their product is using TV remote (consumer IR) while TIR1000 states that only compatible for IrDA and HPSIR.

Customer would like to know whether TIR1000 can be use for consumer IR?

What they need to do, eg software setting? Any other recommendation/solution?


Best regards,

  • Hello Wee Keat,

    The "Consumer IR" protocol is not standardized from what I can see.  The TIR1000 is a physical layer implementation of IR modulation.  If you use TIR1000 to encode and decode your signals given you give it the need signal outlined in the datasheet of the TIR100 then it can work with any protocol you make.  The data format is up to you.

    There is no "software setting" for the TIR1000.  You need to generate a 16x the baud rate signal and then generate the Tx and listen for the Rx.  The receiver needs to know the baud rate too and have a transceiver there to with a 16x baud rate signal.  This needs to be done at the system level.  This is a pretty simple part. 

    Are they creating the "Receiver" too?  What are they trying to control.  Whatever it is, it will have a specific protocol you will have to adhere to.  Let me know what they are trying to control with the IR signal.
