Press Release Summary:

IR Receiver Modules feature preamplifier circuit.

Mar 10, 2017 -

Available in TSOP39xxx and TSOP59xxx series models in four automatic gain modules, IR Receiver Modules offer 45 m transmission range. TSOP39xxx and TSOP59xxx provide 0.08 mW/m² and 0.20 mW/m² typical irradiance respectively. Units are operated with 2.5 V to 5.5 V supply with 0.35 mA current for TSOP39xxx series and 0.7 mA for TSOP59xxx series. Having 30 kHz to 56 kHz carrier frequencies range, receiver comes with photodetector and IR filter.

Vishay Intertechnology Native Top-View IR Receivers in Through-Hole Package Save Space in Consumer Products

Press release date: Mar 06, 2017

Featuring Two-Lens Design, Devices Offer Typical Irradiance Down to 0.08 mW/m² in Four AGC Versions

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today broadened its optoelectronics portfolio with the introduction of two new series of miniature infrared (IR) receiver modules for IR remote control applications. To save space in consumer products, the Vishay Semiconductors TSOP39xxx and TSOP59xxx series devices are the industry's first native top-view IR receivers in a through-hole package.

To accommodate applications requiring top-view IR receivers, side-view packages are typically modified with a 90° lead bend. By eliminating the need for a lead bend, the devices released today reduce the PCB space requirement in products such as set-top boxes, air conditioners, and high-end audio systems. Featuring a two-lens design for high sensitivity, the TSOP39xxx and TSOP59xxx offer typical irradiance down to 0.08 mW/m² and 0.20 mW/m², respectively.

To simplify designs, the IR receivers feature a photodetector, preamplifier circuit, and IR filter in a single 4-pin epoxy package. The devices offer a supply voltage from 2.5 V to 5.5 V; very low supply current of 0.35 mA typical for the TSOP39xxx series and 0.7 mA for the TSOP59xxx series; transmission range up to 45 meters; and carrier frequencies from 30 kHz to 56 kHz. The receivers provide improved immunity against ambient light and are insensitive to supply voltage variations and ripple noise.

TSOP39xxx and TSOP59xxx series devices are offered in four automatic gain control (AGC) versions for short and long burst codes. All receivers are RoHS-compliant, halogen-free, and Vishay Green.

Samples and production quantities of the TSOP39xxx and TSOP59xxx series are available now, with lead times of four weeks. Pricing for U.S. delivery only is $1.00 per piece.
