Slim-Line Infrared Transceiver Enables Thinner Cell Phones

The new Slim Line family of IrDA-compliant transceivers with a low-profile module will allow designers to add infrared connectivity to even the thinnest PDAs, cell phones and other handheld portable devices. Housed in a miniature 9.1 mm x 3.4 mm package, the ZHX1810 transceiver measures just 2.75 mm high--making it about one-third thinner than most serial infrared transceivers on the market, according to the company. Designed to operate using the IrDA-Data standard, the device combines an IRED emitter, a PIN photodiode detector, a digital ac-coupled LED driver and a receiver/decoder in a single package. Just three external components are required for a complete serial infrared (SIR) solution. It operates with a minimum link distance of 1 meter and supports transmission speeds from 2.4 to 115.2 kbps. Pricing is $2.10 each/50,000. ZILOG INC., Campbell, CA. (408) 558-8500.
