  • Via's Mini-ITX IR Module for $1

    Check this out!

    This is a schematic for a IR module that costs, well not $1 maybe $3, and probably works with VIA's Mini-ITX onboard infrared connectors!!! I will build it and check for you! It doesnt cost much so if anyone finishes it before me, will not be mad

    Does this really work?
    Did you build it and tried it?

    i searched some infrared recivers and transmitters a long time ago (When i had a color Handspring visor... ahhh...) and these things were much complex than this little circuit...

      I'd be really happy if that does work... but in the manual for my epia it says that the FIR and CIR headers are NOT standard (and to consult them for reference designs), like it is on most motherboards... so if it's designed for a standard IRDA header like you would find on other motherboards, then it may not work on the VIA boards... of course, I only have an epia 800 so it may be different for different models...
      But don't take it from me! here's a quote from a real, live newbie:

              Have bought the components, but high fever and this bloody headache doesnt allow me to concentrate and built it

                I've made a very similar circuit for a microcontroller/universal remote circuit. Looks like it'll work. Problem is that the cheap IR LEDs aren't very powerful and are required to be right next to the receiver.

                  i think i'll try this also.

                  i have a treo 650 and this is a good way to transfer pics or an mp3 or two.

                  thanks.

                    has anyone tried to get this to work?

                    thanks.

                      Whilst this looks like a nifty circuit, if you checkout the WinLirc (Windows users or Lirc for *nix users) project.

                      The circuit is as simple, if not simpler. Whilst the circuit is primarily for a com port, there are some variations for the FIR/CIR ports as well.

                      I've built the receiver only portion and have it directly connected to the com 2 header pins on my mobo (looks very OEM, apart from the piece of veroboard the components are soldered to).

                      Works like a charm.
