Welcome to the IguanaWorks USB IR Transceiver Project
Here you will find technical information regarding the IguanaWorks USB IR transceiver. The transceiver is capable of sending and receiving 38KHz infrared codes, which is the standard for most home electronics. (Actually, we can transmit from 25kHz up to 100 kHz) As with all IguanaWorks software, the software and firmware are open, according to our license terms.
The IguanaWorks USB IR Transceiver is a simple USB device that can communicate with most home electronics and remote controls via infrared (IR). The transceiver can both send and receive IR codes, and is fully compatible with LIRC under Linux and WinLIRC under windows. Unlike serial devices, the USB transceiver does not require a kernel module, and multiple transceivers can be in use at the same time. Each transceiver can transmit on up to 4 independent channels (dual socket version only). The transmitter is high-power compared to most serial devices, with a range of 10 ft. We support LIRC and WinLIRC.
