The Irdroid USB IrDA transceiver comes factory pre-configured for 9600 baud rate serial communication. The baud rate can be changed by using the on-board switch and sending specific HEX commands toward the onboard mcp2120 for changing the baud rate setting.

 

Changing the Baud rate:

The unit allows you to change the irDA SIR baud rate by sending a specific control command when the module is in command mode (by using the on board switch.) Please refer to MCP2120 datasheet for more information on switching the serial baud rates.

 

Below is a link to a blog post that explains changing the IrDA SIR Baud rate in software and hardware:

 

 

*  The range depends on the other irDA communication device capabilities, but in general it is about 2 meters
