  • New, Faster IR

    IrSimple, a High-Speed Infrared Communications Protocol Adopted as a Global Standard

    ITX E-Globaledge Corporation (ITX-EG; Masao Nomura, President and CEO), NTT DoCoMo, Inc. (Masao Nakamura, President and CEO), Sharp Corporation (Katsuhiko Machida, President) and Waseda University (Dr. Katsuhiko Shirai, President) have jointly developed IrSimple*1, a high-speed wireless communications protocol using infrared. IrDA*2 (Infrared Data Association), an industry organization that develops and standardizes specifications for infrared communications, has decided to formally adopt the protocol as its standard.

    IrSimple achieves faster data transmission speeds (at least 4 to 10 times faster than at present) by improving the efficiency of the current infrared IrDA protocol embedded in many mobile devices such as mobile phones. In addition, the IrSimple protocol also maintains backward compatibility with the existing IrDA protocols.

    Incorporating IrSimple in digital consumer electronics devices and home appliances is expected to lead to a significant expansion in applications for this new communications protocol. For example, high-resolution photographs taken with a mobile phone or digital camera can be instantly transferred to a flat-panel TV or printer through a simple operation, similar to that of using a remote control unit.

    Main Features of IrSimple

    * Faster data transmission speeds (at least 4 to 10 times faster than existing protocols)
    * Improved efficiency of the protocol by reducing latency until a receiver/transmitter pair is ready to communicate
    * Implementing IrSimple can be done by adding and/or upgrading software for existing IrDA protocols
    * Backward compatibility with existing IrDA-enabled communications incorporated into devices or equipment

        Shame it took them 10 years after the start of the IR PDA craze to finally do this.

          Really though.

          This will also, IMHO, help people who don't want to buy a USB cable for their phone or that don't have BT.

          IR was always forgotten, because of slow data speeds for internet connectivity.

            I couldn't figure out to post a new thread ( cause im still a noob ). But i saw this while looking up how to make an IR reciever. It says ir but then say wireless. Looks like a wireless remote to start your computer. Might be nice to have in a carputer.

            Um, I guess this is where you put something witty.WITTY
