AIRport APA-9320 External Infrared Adapter is an infrared driver produced by Microsoft. Infrared is known in short as IR. It is a radiation form with a wavelength that is higher than that on the visible light and beneath the wavelength of microwaves. Infrared radiation has several uses. In computing devices, the infrared light is used to transmit the signals in a wireless fashion from device to device. The use of infrared is confined to line-of-sight communications over a short distance. Infrared is the technology that is used in remote controls to enable one to change channels without having to leave their seats. This same technology can also be applied in computing and will enable the user to print as well as transfer files from a portable to a desktop computer without having to involve so many wires which can become messy. It is a wireless technology.
