Infrared remote control transmitter RC5
• RC5 protocol
• Maximum of:
– 56 keys (20-pin version)
– 30 keys (16-pin version).
• Option of multi-system or single system transmitter
– Multi-system: maximum 8 systems, selection by key
– Single system: maximum 8 different systems per IC,
selection by jumper wire or switch.
• Power-down and key wake-up
• High output current (≤ 45 mA)
• Oscillator frequency of 432 kHz or 4 MHz
• Multiple key protection
• Option of 25% or 33% duty factor
• Contained in DIP16, SO16, DIP20 or SO20 packages.
The PCA8521 can be used in infrared remote control
transmitters. It generates output pulses, in accordance
with the RC5 protocol, when a key is pressed. The IC does
not contain a software programmable processor.
However, it does contain a ROM in which the codes that
have to be transmitted are stored. An example of an
application diagram using a 20-pin IC is illustrated in Fig.7.
The oscillator frequency may be optionally chosen as
432 kHz or 4 MHz. For 432 kHz additional external
capacitors must be connected. The capacitors for a 4 MHz
oscillator is integrated. When a key in the key-matrix is
pressed a drive line will be connected to a sense line. This
causes the oscillator to start and a corresponding code will
be generated conforming to the RC5 protocol.
Seven drive lines (DR0 to DR6) and eight sense lines
(SN0 to SN7) may be connected via the key matrix to scan
the keys (see Fig.1).
When two or more keys are activated simultaneously no
transmission will take place.
