Hello, I am interested in building a IR receiver for my computer, and
came across this site:
http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaveral/Lab/1475/remotectrl.html and I
want to build this schematic:
http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaveral/Lab/1475/esquema.gif

But I came across quite a problem...
I can't seem to find either the IS1U60L or the GP1U52X anywhere.
IS1U60L datasheet: http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaveral/Lab/1475/is1u60l.pdf
GP1U52X datasheet: http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaveral/Lab/1475/gp1u52x.gif
Does anyone know where I can find it, or a different schematic that
utilises parts that are easier to find? If not, can I replace the
IS1U60L with IS1U621L, or the IS1U60 (Although the schematic calls for
the IS1U60L, I found one datasheet that's for both IS1U60 and
IS1U60L).

That's all for now... I will post again if anything else comes up.
Please post or e-mail me with help.

Thanks,
Simon Goldin, a.k.a. Sleepaholic88

You can sub in practically any IR Rx module there. Try maybe a Vishay
TSOP1238, which you can get from Mouser. (Note: I couldn't get to the
center frequency of those specific parts you mentioned. Substitute one
of the other TSOP12xx series parts as appropriate).

Thanks.
I coudn't find the 276-137 on the Radio Shack site, but TSOP1238
should be fine.

Another thing - Where can I get a 5 V, 20 mA power source? What would
an estimate price for it be?

Thanks again.

From a higher-voltage, unregulated source using a 78L05 regulator, and
about $0.80, respectively. F #### fordsen Jan 1, 1970 0 After a number of phone calls I finally found this infrared sensor IS1U60L from Sharp at www.hvwtech.com. If you go to the site you will find it under 'sensors'. This company is based in Canada and the downside is that the price is about [b:9c95f91c1e]$3.95 US.[/b:9c95f91c1e] I also found a distributor in
Massachussets for the company Future Electronics that sells the part
for about [b:9c95f91c1e]$1.80 US[/b:9c95f91c1e]. The downside of that deal is that you have to buy [b:9c95f91c1e]50[/b:9c95f91c1e] pieces which isn't convenient unless you own an electronics store. I'm not sure about the operation of the [b:9c95f91c1e]TSOP1238[/b:9c95f91c1e] but supposedly it replaces the IS1U60L. For the regulator, I found a [b:9c95f91c1e]5V 100mA 78L05 [/b:9c95f91c1e]regulator for [b:9c95f91c1e]$0.40 [/b:9c95f91c1e]at
www.mouser.com. The same site also carries the TSOP1238
for[b:9c95f91c1e] \$1[/b:9c95f91c1e].

How can a cheap [b:9c95f91c1e]serial port connector[/b:9c95f91c1e] be
obtained? My guess was to rip the cable off and old mouse. Any
suggestions would be welcome!

I'm building the same project as Simon Golding. If anybody would like
to mutually share their results, toubleshooting tips be sure to
contact me at
