Enhanced IR Receiver Modules

19 January 2024

The TSOP18xx, TSOP58xx and TSSP5xx infrared (IR) receiver modules from Vishay have just been significantly upgraded.

These 940nm peak wavelength devices, which are aimed at use in remote controls, proximity sensing systems, light barriers and suchlike, are now able to benefit from major operational advantages - in terms an expanded supply voltage range (2.0V to 5.5V), ramped up electro-static (ESD) robustness (reaching 12kV), 20% higher dark-ambient sensitivity (resulting in lower noise) and 50% smaller power budget requirements. With the same form factor as the previous generation, these modules offer drop-in replacements that avoid the need for adjustment of existing PCB designs. Among the places where they may be used will be video gaming equipment, drones, robots, set-top boxes (STBs), domestic appliances, air conditioning units, etc.
