The mLink NEC IR Transceiver is a small serial I2C based module that is capable of sending and receiving infrared remote control signals compatible with the NEC protocol.

The NEC IR protocol is the prevalent standard for infrared remote communication, widely adopted by various IR-enabled devices like TVs, set-top boxes, air conditioners, and projectors. With this module, you can use your microcontroller to effortlessly capture and transmit signals to and from these compatible devices, making it an excellent choice for home automation projects.

Compatible with microcontrollers equipped with an I2C interface, including popular Arduino models, wireless ESP devices, and Raspberry Pi, this module offers versatile control options. As part of the mLink series, it seamlessly integrates with other mLink modules. This means you can easily daisy-chain multiple mLink modules, enabling centralised control through a single serial interface.

For Arduino users you can use the mLink library (see forum for library and examples) to control any type of mLink module. Only one single instance of the library is needed to control multiple types of mLink modules, resulting in very little resource overhead and therefore making it great for Arduinos with small amounts of memory and pin counts.

For Raspberry Pi users we have a Python module which can be installed via pip or downloaded and installed directly from our forum. Please see the mLink Python forum thread for requirements and download link here: viewtopic.php?f=131&t=3062&p=8592#p8592
