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: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
