Simple IR Transmitter

Simple IR Transmitter
This circuit uses just two standard logic ICs which, with the accompanying receiver, forms a four-channel remote control and has been designed for use with the ‘Audio/Video Switch’ and the ‘Switchbox for Loudspeakers’ (shown elsewhere in this issue, as is the IR Rreceiver).Each pushbutton is connected to an input of a shift register (4021), which is clocked by a binary counter/oscillator (74HC4060). A cycle is started via one of the diodes connected to each pushbutton and a differentiator-network (C1/R4), creating a short pulse that is fed to the shift register and counter/oscillator.
