Agilent Technologies Introduces 4 Mb/s Infrared Transceiver for Notebook PCs and Printers

11/6/2002 - Agilent Technologies introduced the Agilent HSDL-3603, a standard power infrared transceiver that is being offered as a "drop in" replacement for the IRMS6453 and TFDU6101E transceivers used by manufacturers of notebook PCs and printers.

The transceiver is supplied in a small profile package at 3.9 mm (height) by 9.8 mm (width) by 4.65 mm (depth) and is also highly suitable for PDAs, cellular phones, digital cameras and Internet appliances. It meets Infrared Data Association (IrDA) 1.4 Fast Infrared (FIR) standards, providing operation at speeds of up to 4 Mb/s.

The Agilent HSDL-3603 offers features beyond those of compatible IR transceivers, such as an extended IrDA link distance of greater than 1.5 m and guaranteed performance over the -20 C to +70 C temperature range. Its low 10 nA typical shutdown current helps to achieve very low power consumption in battery-operated products. The transceiver can also be shut down completely for further power savings. Other features include an integrated EMI (electromagnetic interference) shield and guaranteed performance over a supply voltage range of 2.7 to 5.25 V. It is IEC 825-Class 1 eye safe.

Agilent has been the worldwide leader in IrDA-compatible IR transceiver production since 1993. The company is recognized for its leadership in product quality, service, support and technology.

The Agilent HSDL-3603 IR transceiver is immediately available for volume order through Agilent's direct sales channel and global distribution partners.
