Today, another interesting infrared receiver solder guide for the PC is finished. Who like to control the PC or HTPC comfortable from the sofa, can solder different IR receiver types for commercially available universal remote controls. There are some self building guides in the ocinside.de modding section for several years and today a new special infrared receiver soldering guide for the PC is published.
After the extended guide for the infrared receiver with hardware side function to remotely switch the PC ON or OFF as full USB variant with the name "USB Ultra infrared receiver" or briefly "USB Ultra IR" a new version 2.0 is now available. The new USB Ultra infrared receiver v2.0 was - contrary to the previous version - extended by some electronic components and offers thereby new functions and some improvements.
A green LED indicates that a power on/off signal is received which was programmed before. Furthermore a new TSOP receiver unit is used, which is more sensitive and more energy efficient. Last but not least the USB wiring was optimized, so that the operation also with all newer PCs and current motherboards should be no problem, since the USB data lines are now reduced to 3.3V instead of 5V. All other functions are explained exactly on the following pages, thus much pleasure with reading and soldering. OCInside
