Fraunhofer IPMS integrates High Speed IrDA protocol stack in small SSOP28 package

02.02.2007
The IrDA Infrared Data Communication is a simple to use, powerful and competitive wireless data link. It caters to an expanding market of portable as well as stationary devices. Today, the necessity exists to exchange multimedia data like pictures or MP3-files in a fast and easy way using IrDA.

Furthermore, there are also other applications requesting wireless high speed data links like data logging and monitoring systems in industries and medical engineering. Today, data rates are available up to 16 Mbit/s. In addition to the powerful IrDA IP solutions, the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (IPMS) announces a high speed IrDA stand-alone controller in a small SSOP28 package.

The IPMS_IRHSP IrDA controller supports all IrDA data rates from SIR, MIR, FIR up to VFIR (16 Mbit/s). The controller includes the bigger part of the IrDA protocol stack. That means, all IrDA layers from IrPHY to IrLMP are implemented.

For system integration, only few additional components have to be supplemented in order to implement a powerful, high speed wireless data link. Necessary resources become smaller compared to pure software solutions. Additionally, the IPMS_IRHSP IrDA controller has the possibility to bypass the IrLAP and IrLMP layer to adopt i.e. MS Windows IrDA stacks directly. So, the IrDA controller is able to support all current application layers like IrSimple, IrOBEX or IrCOMM. Furthermore, it includes a Remote Control feature that enables the user to work with different RC codec’s beside IrDA using only one Ir-transceiver. And it has an adaptive clock control algorithm for low power consumption. So, the IPMS_IRHSP IrDA controller provides high speed wireless data links for numerous portable and low power devices in consumer electronics, industrial applications and medical engineering.

Now, engineering samples of the IPMS_IRHSP IrDA controller are available.

Im Focus: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
