Hi fellas,

First off... Anybody think it might be a good thing to have a 'What's This Please..' as a sticky thread, and if so, could we have one please? Only because I've seen a few people (including myself) needing to know what particular parts are.

Ok now to my question.. What's This please.. :) I'm assuming it's some sort of photodiode or something, but I've had a quick search on around on the datasheet sites looking for the displayed numbers, but I can't see anything that matches.





Thanks guys

Looks like an IR remote receiver.

mikeselectricstuff:
It's an infra-red receiver for remote controls, by Sharp I think. It demodulates the 36-ish khz carrier to give an easily decoded datastream. There are many simiular devices (e.g. Vishay TSOP range), sho shouldn;t be hard to find data

orbiter:
Ah ok, thanks guys. That gives me something to go on.

Cheers
