RS232 to infrared interface
Transmission of weak infrared signals could now be possible even through the Internet with this little device. A custom client-server application could be made that simply sends serial data over any kind of link.
So, here is a device that transforms received infrared signals into RS232 serial data. It also transforms received RS232 and sends it through the infrared LED that is on the device. Two of these devices basically form an infrared repeater through the RS232 port based on Microchip's PIC12F683. It is possible to send raw data as well as remote control commands! Pretty sweet device.
