PC IrDA Port


Many PC motherboards (perhaps most of them, in fact) are fitted with a connector for an infrared communication port. That connector is generally not used, since IrDA never became truly successful and has probably already seen its best days. Still, quite a few modern devices that can use this link to communicate with a PC are available, including printers, PDAs, mobile phones, and laptops. However, the link between the above-mentioned connector on the motherboard and the outside world, the IrDA interface, is not supplied with any motherboard and is usually not available in computer shops as an accessory.
