IR Transmitter + Receiver for #RaspberryPi with BR1225A/FAN Coin Cell Battery #piday
When the IR transmitter/receiver solution you’re looking for is only available as a USB adapter and you either don’t want to clog up your USB ports or it simply doesn’t fit with your design, what do you do? Build your own solution! This OSH Park-ready project fits snugly on the Pi’s GPIOs and is designed for a case that allows access to the GPIOs while protecting the rest of the Pi. Smart! The BR1225A/FAN button cell is a slick solution for the small-PCB footprint.
I needed an IR receiver for my Raspberry Pi which I use as an internet TV receiver with some custom program. As expected, I could not find any IR receiver module that fits nicely in my favorite simple & discreet Rasperry Pi case which only exposes all connectors and GPIO. A USB adapter was an option, but I did not want anything sticking out of the pi. Solution: make my own.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
