Ir Nec Protocol Pdf 17 High Quality

The pattern in which the modulated IR signal is converted to binary is defined by a transmission protocol. There are many IR transmission protocols. Sony, Matsushita, NEC, and RC5 are some of the more common protocols.

Ir Nec Protocol Pdf 17

it should be printing unknown if any one of the above is not printing,Anyway it depends upon which protocol your remote is using like sony,lg they have their unique protocols . May be your remote is not matchingwith the listed strings

The RC-5 protocol was developed by Philips in the early 1980s as a semi-proprietary consumer IR (infrared) remote control communication protocol for consumer electronics. It was subsequently adopted by most European manufacturers, as well as by many US manufacturers of specialty audio and video equipment. The other main protocol relevant to consumer electronics is the NEC protocol, which is largely used by Japanese manufacturers.

The RC-5 protocol, when properly implemented, has the advantage that any CD handset (for example) may be used to control any compatible brand of CD player. By comparison, the NEC protocol assigns each brand its own unique header(s) after which may follow any desired command set; this confers the advantage that there cannot be any interference between remote handsets for pieces of equipment made by different manufacturers.

The basics of the protocol are well known. The handset contains a keypad and a transmitter i[1]ntegrated circuit (IC) driving an IR LED.[1] The command data is a Manchester coded bitstream modulating a 36 kHz carrier. (Often the carrier used is 38 kHz or 40 kHz, apparently due to misinformation about the actual protocol.)[clarification needed] The IR signal from the transmitter is detected by a specialized IC with an integral photo-diode, and is amplified, filtered, and demodulated so that the receiving device can act upon the received command.[2] RC-5 only provides a one-way link, with information traveling from the handset to the receiving unit.

The 36 kHz carrier frequency was chosen to render the system immune to interference from TV scan lines. Since the repetition of the 36 kHz carrier is 27.778 μs and the duty factor is 25%, the carrier pulse duration is 6.944 μs. Each bit of the RC-5 code word contains 32 carrier pulses, and an equal duration of silence, so the bit time is 6427.778 μs = 1.778 ms, and the 14 symbols (bits) of a complete RC-5 code word take 24.889 ms to transmit. The code word is repeated every 113.778 ms (4096 / 36 kHz) as long as a key remains pressed. (Again, please note that these timings are not strictly followed by all manufacturers, due to a lack of widespread distribution of accurate information on the RC-5 protocol.)

While the RC-5 protocol is well known and understood, what is not so well documented are the system number allocations and the actual RC-5 commands used for each system. The information provided below is the most complete and accurate information available at this time. It is from a printed document from Philips dated December 1992 that is unfortunately not available in electronic format (e.g., PDF), nor is an updated version available. This information is provided so that companies that wish to use the RC-5 protocol can use it properly, and avoid conflicts with other equipment that may or may not be using the correct system numbers and commands.

The first would be to capture the IR bitstream from the handset of newer Philips products, such as DVD players and analyze them to see what system number is used. The other would be to use the popular Philips Pronto series of programmable remote controls. These can be programmed to operate Philips components using the RC-5 protocol. Again, the bitstream output of the handset would need to be captured and analyzed. The only other way is to obtain the appropriate documents directly from Philips.

When designing a product using the RC-5 protocol, the designer must follow the published information as closely as possible. For example, one surround-sound processor from a US specialty manufacturer used the system number 16, designated for "Preamp 1". This caused many problems with home theater installations that also included a separate two-channel preamplifier, which if of US or European origin, would also use the RC-5 protocol with system number 16. If the designers of the surround-sound processor had the correct information available to them, it would have been obvious that a better choice would have been to use system number 19, designated for "Preamp 2", as this would have avoided needless conflict between products.

Over time, the information will also be added for the command tables so that all of the available information regarding the RC-5 protocol is gathered in one place. The information in the command tables shown in standard font was obtained from the Philips publication referenced at the bottom of this page. Information in italics is information that is known to be accurate, as it was derived by one of the methods described above.

To my knowledge the protocol I describe here was developed by NEC. I've seen very similar protocol descriptions on the internet, and there the protocol is called Japanese Format. I do admit that I don't know exactly who developed it. What I do know is that it is used in my late VCR produced by Sanyo and was marketed under the name of Fisher. NEC manufactured the remote control IC. This description was taken from the VCR's service manual. Those were the days, when service manuals were fulled with useful information!

The picture above shows a typical pulse train of the NEC protocol. With this protocol the LSB is transmitted first. In this case Address $59 and Command $16 is transmitted. A message is started by a 9ms AGC burst, which was used to set the gain of the earlier IR receivers. This AGC burst is then followed by a 4.5ms space, which is then followed by the Address and Command. Address and Command are transmitted twice. The second time all bits are inverted and can be used for verification of the received message. The total transmission time is constant because every bit is repeated with its inverted length. If you're not interested in this reliability you can ignore the inverted values, or you can expand the Address and Command to 16 bits each!

TV, AC, and home audio remotes transmit commands via the infrared port. The infrared port in Flipper Zero allows you to control all IR devices: capture the signals and save them to an SD card, bruteforce unknown protocols, and load your own codes.

As the decoding of the infrared signal happens on the software side, Flipper Zero potentially supports the reception and transmission of any IR remote codes. In the case of unknown protocols which could not be recognized - it records and plays back the raw signal exactly as received.

After collecting all office IR remotes we made sure that almost all of them have different IR protocols. But you can't fully trust the self-built analyzer. If the IR protocol is unknown, the Arduino IRMP analyzer may recognize it as the Siemens protocol.

There are IR protocols that are trying to become universal for several types of devices. The most famous ones are RC5 and NEC. Unfortunately, the most famous does not mean the most common. In my environment, I met just two NEC remotes and no RC5 ones.

Manufacturers love to use their own unique IR protocols, even within the same range of devices (for example, TV-boxes). Therefore, remotes from different companies and sometimes from different models from the same company, are unable to work with other devices of the same type.

The most reliable way to see how the remote IR signal looks like is to use an oscilloscope. It does not demodulate or invert the received signal, it is just displayed "as is". This is useful for testing and debugging. I will show the expected signal on the example of the NEC IR protocol.

Usually, there is a preamble at the beginning of an encoded packet. This allows the receiver to determine the level of gain and background. There are also protocols without preamble, for example, Sharp.

Therefore, air conditioner remotes, unlike other remotes, do not transmit the code of the pressed button, but all the parameters. In another word, these remotes always send ALL the remote data in one large packet. Such protocols are very complex.

To work with IR signals on PC I use the AnalysIR. This is a program for analyzing IR protocols and which supports different devices for IR-capturing. The most common way is to make a homemade receiver with TSOP and Arduino, and connect it via USB. I am using IR-toy V2 as a receiver. List of supported receivers: AnalysIR.pdf.

AnalysIR shows the envelope of the IR signal instead of pulses, unlike an oscilloscope. The program calculates the delays and durations of pulse bursts and logs this info. It helps analyze unknown IR protocols. AnalysIR knows more than 100 IR protocols and is able to recognize them automatically. By the way, the author of the program suggested adding support for a Flipper as an IR receiver. Great idea, isn't it?

Finally you will need an IR remote such as you use for controlling your TV, cable box, or DVD player. All of our examples will use the Adafruit Mini Remote Control shown on the right however we will show you how to detect what protocol your own TV remote is using and if it is a protocol supported by IRLib you can use it instead.

Note that this device has a bandpass filter tuned to 38 kHz which is the typical frequency for most protocols. However some protocols use frequencies from 36 kHz all the way up to 57 kHz. The filter however is not extremely specific and we have had good success receiving anywhere from 36-40 kHz using a 38 kHz receiver. The Panasonic_Old protocol however uses 56 kHz. The TSOP38238 sold by Adafruit has difficulty decoding that frequency. I have however had good success with the receiver sold by Radio Shack at 56 kHz even though it is a 38 kHz device. Radio Shock did not list a part number but we believe it to be a TSOP4438. Sadly that may not be an option anymore :-(
