Create a "learning" remote control

Keywords:IR remote  MAXQ2000  MCU 

Yet the ubiquity of the IR remote has evolved into a problem. Rare is the home that does not have three, four, or more of these little devices cluttering the table. A solution to this mix of remotes is the learning remote that learns the codes from another remote control (RC). The learning remote is placed in "learn" mode, and a second remote "teaches" the learning remote how to transmit a command, volume up, for example. From then on, the learning remote can send the learned command whenever the appropriate button is pushed.

This application note demonstrates how such a learning remote can be built around a MAXQ2000 MCU, one of Maxim's MAXQ RISC MCU.
