As of now, distributor Rutronik offers Vishay’s upgraded TSOP36… series of miniature surface-mount IR receivers for infrared remote control applications in consumer
products. With a minimum irradiance of 0.12mW/m², the TSOP36… series now offers a 20% improvement in sensitivity over previous generation devices, and incorporates an improved optical filter against IR 3D TV signals and other noise.
The devices feature a new-generation integrated circuit and are offered in five automatic gain control (AGC) versions for short and long burst codes. Legacy compatibility with all common IR remote control data formats is provided by the TSOP361.. (short burst codes) and TSOP362.. (long burst codes). The TSOP363.. (short) and TSOP364.. (long) are ideal for all remote control applications and suppress spurious pulses from energy-saving lamps and dimmed LCD backlighting, while the TSOP365.. (short) is capable of suppressing even extreme levels of optical noise. To simplify designs, the devices offer a photo detector and preamplifier circuit mounted within a 4-pin epoxy package.
