IR Transmitter with HT12E

IR Transmitter with HT12E
IR (infra-red) transmitters containing the encoder-IC HT12E from Holtek have been published in Elektor Electronics on previous occasions. The interesting aspect of this design is that the entire IR-transmitter has been squeezed into a handy key ring.The operation of the encoder IC HT12E has already been thoroughly dealt with in earlier publications. It will suffice to mention here that an address can be programmed on inputs A1 through to A8. This address has to be set the same as in the receiver.
