RF remote Control Extender (Receiver)


RF remote Control Extender (Receiver)
This circuit works together with a transmitter described elsewhere in this issue to form a remote-control extender. Due to its limited bandwidth, the output of the RF receiver module does not exactly reproduce the original pulses from the IR receiver. That problem is remedied here by the circuit around T1. The modulator circuit for the data received from this stage is active low, so the primary function of T1 is to invert the received signal.
