App note: Using the CLC module to implement a PCM IR driver

MCPapp

Here is an application note from Microchip describing how to implement pulse code modulation infrared remote control.

This technical brief shows how to construct a simple, low-power IR (infrared) remote control transmitter using a PIC16F1708 microcontroller. The remote control transmitter makes use of the Configurable Logic Cell (CLC) and Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) to create a Pulse Code Modulation (PCM) signal that will be transmitted via an infrared LED. The Peripheral Pin Select (PPS) feature is used to route the PCM signal to an infrared LED.

  1. Interesting, because I don’t recall seeing a PIC16F1708.
    Maybe they mean PIC16F1608/9? But then they would have spelled it wrong everywhere :)
