    Introduction

    Thinking of using Infra Red in your next project? It's an interesting concept that is used time and time again from Communications through Robotics and Remote Control to XY&Z distance measurement and more. Data over IR has a place everywhere in modern life, so why not use it in your next project, too?

    Comprehensive Documentation and Examples

    Proton IR is supplied with comprehensive printed documentation and more than 10 source code examples, fully commented and described in the documentation.

    IR is one of the most talked about subjects on the Proton Compiler Forum. Many of the questions asked time and time again are answered in detail by the documentation included with Proton IR development system. The documentation and worked examples guide you as you understand what IR is, how it's used and how to make it work for you. Covering the topics of:
    • What is a bootloader?
      o The PROTON IR is based around one of the latest PIC® microcontrollers allowing the development board to use the Bootloading technique to speed up the write program test cycle. Thus the Proton IR development system does not require the use of a programmer, such as an Epic®, during the development cycle.
      o Programming the Proton IR
      o How the programming cradle works
    • What is Infra-Red Light
      o Modulation
      o Sending a signal
      o Receiving a signal
    • Receiving IR On A Proton Development Board
      o How does the Proton IR work?
      o Receiving Circuit
      o Transmitting Circuit
    • The History of IR
    • Sony SIRC (Serial Infra Red Control) Protocol
      o Sony SIRC Receiver
      o Sony SIRC Transmitter
    • PHILIPS RC5 Protocol (a gem of info allowing the use of a multitude of low cost IR handsets)
      o RC5 Receiver
      o RC5 Transmitter
    • Standard Serial Data

    Modularity
    The ProtonIR modules are available as separate items to enable you to incorporate them into your own projects, but as with all of our development systems, full circuit diagrams are provided to allow you to build your own or include the circuit in your own designs.
