Connecting the MCP2150 to the Windows® Operating System
This technical brief demonstrates the operation of the MCP2150 with Microsoft® Windows® Operating System (OS). The MCP2150 is an IrDA® protocol handler with an encoder/decoder. This allows the MCP2150 to be used as a ?Virtual Connector?, a wireless link between an embedded application and an IrDA host. This host can be a Personal Computer (PC) using Microsoft Windows. Microsoft Windows includes a Terminal client that can easily be used to demonstrate the capabilities of the MCP2150. Figure 1 shows typical implementation of the MCP2150 in an embedded system.
