IR-D14 building your own custom remote control system is incredibly simple,
very affordable, and you can use your favorite universal IR remote transmitter
to control them -- It just doesn't get any easier than this.
On power-up the IR-D14 digital outputs default to logic 0 or ground. The LED
drive output is “opencollector”, and defaults to high impedance to turn off the
status LED. A valid button press received from the universal IR transmitter
corresponding to an IR-D14 digital output will toggle that outputs logic state
from ground to logic 1. Pressing the same button a 2nd time will toggle the same
digital output pin from logic 1 back to ground.
Depressing and holding a button on the transmitter will cause
the corresponding output to toggle between logic 1 to logic 0 at rates of
approximately 1/2 second “500 millisecond” intervals.
If you need a 15-bit "14 momentary" & " 1 latching" version, please see the
new IR-D15A HERE.
Need a "Super Simple"
infrared receiver IC that you can control with your favorite universal IR
transmitter..? We have one.
The IR-D14 is an 18-pin DIP microcontroller - preprogrammed by Reynolds Electronics to decode
Sony® Corporations infrared remote control command protocol. Use any
infrared remote control transmitter that can be programmed to use
the Sony® infrared protocol to control the IR-D14 IC.

The IR-D14 IC requires
only 5VDC power + "1" external component [1 40KHz IR detector module] for a
fully functional receiver circuit.
A whopping 14-Bit output
[15 including the LED output] in a single 18-pin package.
Super simple circuit -
easy for even the novice to build & use.
Direct LED drive outputs
[25mA max per pin - total 200mA max combined].
power efficient, universal remote control transmitters to control the IR-D14
Save time, money, and
resources integrating remote control capabilities into robotics, hobby
projects & OEM equipment with off-the-shelf transmitters.
Most decoder ICs require a
secondary drive circuit such as a transistor to control a simple LED. The
IR-D14 can directly drive up to 25mA max per pin, [200mA total per IC], and drive LEDs directly with
a single current limiting resistor.
LED output provided for visual
"data received" confirmation, and system range testing.
The IR-D14 IC requires no
external oscillator or crystal to function, reducing overall circuit noise
OEMs. Add remote control
to you next product without the hassles of FCC approval, and the huge expense
of RF solutions. Drop in an IR-D14 IC, then select a pre-manufactured
universal IR transmitter for your new remote controlled product. Saving the
expense of RF components, FCC approval, and huge costs of manufacturing the
Note: For the best
operating range with the IR-D14 IC, we recommend using the Vishay®
TSOP1740 IR detector modules
provide very stable & reliable operation, have excellent ambient noise
cancellation features + very good sensitivity to the 40KHz data signal.
