Vishay IR Receiver Modules

TSOP18xx, TSOP58xx, and TSSP5xx series of IR receiver modules now feature the company’s latest in-house IC technology. Offered in Minicast packages and provide drop-in, plug and play replacements for existing devices in the series while offering 50% lower current consumption, improved ESD robustness to 12kV, a wider supply voltage range from 2.0V to 5.5V, 20% higher dark-ambient sensitivity and improved performance under strong DC light. Consist of a photodetector, preamplifier circuit, and IR filter in a single package, and feature reduced current consumption over a wider voltage range to increase battery life in mobile devices while being robust under bright sunlight to enable outdoor applications.

TSOP18xx and TSOP58xx series are designed for IR remote control in televisions, soundbars, video game systems, set-top boxes (STBs), appliances, air conditioners, and more. Provide increased robustness against disturbances such as IR emissions from different kinds of lamps and are insensitive to supply voltage variations and ripple noise. Are available with carrier frequencies from 30kHz to 56kHz and in six automatic gain control (AGC) versions for short and long burst codes.

TSSP5xx series delivers long range proximity and presence sensing to 2m and can be paired with the TSAL6200 emitter for light barrier applications to 8m. Sensitive to a carrier frequency of 38kHz – and offering a peak sensitivity of 940nm – are said to be ideal for sensing the distance to objects for toys, drones and robots, object approach detection for the activation of displays, user consoles and garage door light barriers.
