Manufacturer Part #
IrDA PICtail™ Plus Daughter Card
|Application Type:||Expansion/Daughter Bd|
Features & Applications
The IrDA PICtail™ Plus Daughter Board is designed to operate in conjunction with Microchip’s Explorer 16 or other development boards with a PICtail Plus connector and AN1071 IrDA Standard Stack for Microchip 16-bit devices to create an IrDA-enabled development and evaluation platform. The IrDA Stack is written to operate with the IrDA-enabled UARTs on the 16-bit PIC24 MCUs and dsPIC33 DSCs.
The IrDA Stack is written to operate with the IrDA-enabled UARTs on the PIC24F, PIC24H, and dsPIC33 16-bit controllers and digital signal controllers.
To get started, an Explorer 16 development board is required. All Explorer 16 development boards are shipped with connector J5 installed. The IrDA® Standard PICtail Plus Daughter Board should be inserted into one of the top two sockets of J5. The orientation of the IrDA Standard PICtail Plus Daughter Board should be such that the optical sensors points toward the prototyping area on the Explorer 16 development board.
