SMD IR Receivers offer variable supply voltage of 2.7-5.5 V.

Press Release Summary:

Miniature, multi-function, Series TSOP36xxx combines photo detector and preamplifier in single package to enable design of remote control systems. Units operate with short burst transmission codes and data rates up to 4,000 bit/s with 7 standard carrier frequencies from 30-56 kHz. Automatic Gain Control suppresses ambient light disturbances, and epoxy package doubles as IR filter. With metal shielding, devices are protected against electrical field disturbances.

Vishay Enriches SMD Multi-Functioned IR Receiver Module Offering With New Devices Specified for 2.7-V to 5.5-V Supply Voltage

SANTA CLARA, CALIFORNIA - April 23, 2004 - A new series of miniaturized, multi-functioned SMD IR receiver modules that provide an industry-leading variable supply voltage range from 2.7 V to 5.5 V was announced today by Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH).

Devices in the new TSOP36xxx series combine a photo detector and preamplifier in a single, highly integrated package to enable the design of space-saving and reliable remote control systems. In addition to being specified for an unusually broad supply voltage range, TSOP36xxx receiver modules are capable of operating with short-burst (¡Ý6 cycles/burst) transmission codes and data rates up to 4000 bit/s with seven standard carrier frequencies from 30 kHz up to 56 kHz.

Integrated Automatic Gain Control (AGC) suppresses ambient light disturbances for reliable operation, and the new receiver modules' epoxy package doubles as an IR filter to further enhance immunity against ambient light. With metal shielding, devices in the TSOP36xxx series are also protected against electrical field disturbances.

The IR receiver modules from Vishay Semiconductors also feature low power consumption, a low active output, and an internal band filter that allows PCM frequency operation. A demodulated output signal that can be decoded directly by a microprocessor makes these devices a good solution for multimedia applications.

Each module measures 5.3 mm by 7.2 mm with a 2.35-mm height profile. TSOP36xxx receiver modules are specified for an operating temperature range of -40 °C to +90 °C and are TTL- and CMOS-compatible.

Samples and production quantities of the new miniaturized SMD IR receiver modules are available now with lead times of six to eight weeks for larger orders. Pricing for U.S. delivery in 100,000-piece quantities starts at $80.00 per 100 pieces.

Vishay, a Fortune 1,000 Company listed on the NYSE, is one of the world's largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors (diodes, rectifiers, transistors, optoelectronics, and selected ICs) and passive electronic components (resistors, capacitors, inductors, and transducers). The Company's components can be found in products manufactured in a very broad range of industries worldwide. Vishay is headquartered in Malvern, Pennsylvania, and has plants in 17 countries employing over 25,000 people. Vishay can be found on the Internet at
