IR Remote Control using IR BoosterPack and Ultra-Low Power Microcontroller


This design shows the implementation of IR Remote Control functionality using the integrated IR features of the MSP430FR4133 device. Examples include basic IR ASK TX and RX: and a Learning Mode where the device can be trained to control existing IR devices: like a television.

  • Demonstrates usage of the IR modulation logic features built into the MSP430FR4133 for a simpler: more efficient IR modulation implementationSupports 38kHz carrier IR ASK demodulation: but can be modified for other carrier frequenciesUses 4x4 membrane keypad and demonstrates matrix keypad detectionShows functions on the segmented LCD display on the MSP-EXP430FR4133 Launchpad using the MSP430FR4133 integrated display driverThis design includes software demo projects for TX: RX: and Learning Mode: and includes a design guide with a discussion of design theory for IR
  • Drone remote controller
  • Smart home remote control
