Agilent Technologies Inc. has announced the release of the HSDL-3002 IR transceiver that combines IrDA compatibility with IR remote control operation, enabling PDAs and mobile phones to control consumer appliances at distances of up to 6m.

The transceiver also offers an extended IrDA short-range link distance of up to 50cm - farther than the standard IrDA low power specification of 20cm to 30cm. This allows the PDA or phone to transfer data, such as "point and pay" infrared financial management (IrFM) transactions, business cards, messages or files, over an increased, more convenient, distance.

"Most of today's PDA designs already have the hardware capability to record and transmit remote control signals," said Kee Hane Ngoh, operations manager of Agilent's Infrared Products Operation. "This two-in-one transceiver technology provides manufacturers with a way to substantially increase the value of their products at very little additional cost."

Offered in an 8-pin, 2.7-by-9.1-by-3.65mm surface-mount package, the HSDL-3002 is fully-compliant with the IrDA Physical Layer 1.4 low-power standards and operates at serial IR data rates of 9.6Kbps to 115.2Kbps. The IR transceiver's remote control feature operates at a wavelength of 915nm to 965nm, providing a link distance up to 6m.

The IEC 825-Class 1-compliant device also has a shutdown current of 10nA, extending battery life in mobile devices.
