Here is an easy to build IR remote control.
It could be used at home to control lights, radio or more powerfull things.

This remote control is build arround an IR coded transmiter and an IR receiver powered by its own power supply.

This architecture is based on a PIC16F84 (ou 16F628). I also build another one based on a PIC12C508 (ou 12F509). These two versions are compatibles.
All the informations (PCB, schematics, source code ...) are in the file RemoteCtrlIR-V1.0.tgz (attached).

Enjoy !
