Infrared Remote Control Decoder & Switcher Board
« on: June 02, 2021, 01:02:40 pm »
Infrared remote controllers are everywhere around us. The majority of home appliances are controlled using infrared remote controls. In this article/video, we learn to build a device that can decode (almost) any IR remote control and use the instructions to switch the relays (loads). So we can use this feature in a variety of applications without buying a new IR remote control and expensive hardware, such as turning ON/OFF the lights, opening/closing the curtains, ... etc. I have used an ATTiny85 microcontroller as the heart of the circuit. The device can record up to three IR codes in the EEPROM memory and switch 3 separate devices. Each relay can handle the currents up to 10A. The load switching mechanism (momentary ON/OFF, toggling, .. etc) can be programmed by the user.

I used Altium Designer 21.4.1 and the SamacSys component libraries (SamacSys Altium Plugin) to design the Schematic and PCB. I also used the Siglent SDS2102X Plus/SDS1104X-E to analyze the IR signals.

The device works stable and reacts well to the transmitted IR signals. So let’s get started and build this puppy!

Currently included protocols: Denon / Sharp, JVC, LG, NEC / Apple, Panasonic / Kaseikyo, RC5, RC6, Samsung, Sony, (Pronto), BoseWave, Lego, Whynter, MagiQuest.

Unfortunately they don't tell which variants of NEC (standard/extended, or µPD1986C) and Sony (12/15/20 bits) are supported. And they seem to think that Panasonic and Kaseikyo are the same. Matsushita (Panasonic MN6014) is a 11/12 bit code while Kaseikyo (AKA Japanese code) has 48 bits.

Yes, this is for protocol detection, however, I have not limited the code to any protocol. So we can say that it covers the "most" remotes.

Mine was SONY. this is the signal of my remote.
