Windows device driver information for ITECIR Infrared Receiver (SIO2)

The ITECIR Infrared Receiver (SIO2) is an infrared device that can pick up infrared signals. It is likewise capable of converting the infrared signals into electric currents. The data transmission of this Infrared receiver is implemented in short range communications between PDAs or personal digital assistants and computer peripherals. These devices generally are in full compliance to the specifications maintained by the Infrared Data Association or IrDA. Infrared devices utilize LEDs (light emitting diodes) for emitting infrared radiation that will be focused on a narrow beam by using a plastic lens. In turn, the beam will be turned on and off or modulated for encoding data. The ITECIR Infrared Receiver (SIO2) device will then utilize a silicon photodiode for converting the infrared radiation it has picked up to an electric current. This infrared receiver is only capable of reacting to the rapidly pulsing signal generated by a transmitter and filtering out gradually shifting infrared radiation coming from ambient lighting.

Outdated Drivers?

Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.

To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates

Generally speaking, communications conducted via Infrared are efficient for indoor use and in spaces with high population density. This is because Infrared does not have the capability of penetrating through walls so it cannot interfere with other functioning devices used in adjoining rooms. It is likewise the most common method used for remote control and appliance communications. Communications via free space optics utilizing Infrared lasers may be a fairly affordable method for installing a communications link in urban vicinities functioning at up to a maximum of 4 gigabit per second as opposed to the outlay of burying cables for fiber optics. Infrared Data transmission of printed signs’ encoded audio counterparts is currently being researched as to whether it can serve as aid for people who are visually impaired. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and ITECIR Infrared Receiver (SIO2) errors before installing any driver updates.
