Vishay introduces a serial infrared (SIR) transceiver for short-distance, wireless communication. The TFBS4711 transceiver measures 1.9 mm high, 3.1 mm deep and 6.0 mm long. With the transceiver, design engineers can add short-range infrared connectivity to smaller and thinner handheld systems with greater flexibility, enabling mobile phones and PDAs to transfer digital images and data files or to pay for goods using the infrared Point and Pay application. The 1.9 mm height allows the transceiver to be placed on either side of the circuit board.
