IR Testers

IR Receiver Modules References

The TSOP1738 was commonly used. It is worth noting that different Infrared Receiver Modules have different pinouts. For instance:

Part Number Pinouts (1,2,3) Manufacture
TSOP 12[30,33,36,37,38,40,56] GND - Vs - OUT Vishay Semiconductors
TSOP 17[30,33,36,37,38,40,56] GND - Vs - OUT Temic Semiconductors
TSOP 22xx, 24xx OUT - GND - Vs Vishay Semiconductors
TSOP 44xx, 48xx OUT - Vs - GND Vishay Semiconductors
