Transmitter for Fibre-Optic IR Extender

Transmitter for Fibre-Optic IR Extender
This circuit restores the original modulation of the signal received from the remote-control unit, which was demodulated by the receiver unit at the other end of the extender (see ‘Receiver for fibre-optic IR extender’).If no signal is received, the Toslink transmitter in the receiver is active, so a High level is present at the output of the Toslink receiver in this circuit. Buffer IC2a then indicates via LED D1 that the receiver unit is active.
