Free PCB Sunday I: Infrared receiver transmitter

We go through a lot of prototype PCBs, and end up with lots of extras that we’ll never use. Every Sunday we give away a few PCBs from one of our past or future projects, or a related prototype. PCBs by Seeed Studio.

This is the final version of the PCB for the USB infrared remote control receiver/transmitter. This IR hacking tool can visualize infrared signals on a Java logic analyzer, record and replay infrared signals, and decode them.

You can get an assembled USB IR Toy for $20, including worldwide shipping.

We’re giving away two PCBs this week, one now, and one later today. Just ask for it in the comments.

Some stuff:

  • Yes, we’ll mail it anywhere in the world!
  • Be sure to use a real e-mail in the address field so we can contact you for shipping info.
  • First come, first serve. If we can’t contact the first commenters we move down the list, so you could consider making a request even if it looks like all the PCBs are gone.
  • Please, limit one PCB per address per month.
  • Like everything else on this site, PCBs are offered without warranty.

We try to stagger free PCB Sunday posts so every time zone has a chance to participate, but the best way to see the post first is to subscribe to the RSS feed.

  1. Ha, that is funny! My friend and I are just developing a ir shooting game with rc planes. We are using an Arduino for it. Maybe a Pic would work too/better?
    Yes, I’d like one…
