PRECAUTIONS
To ensure trouble-free operation, please observe the following precautions:
Optical communications are easily affected by external light sources, weak batteries, transfer
distance, transfer angle, etc.
Any of these conditions may cause a data transfer failure, incomplete, missing or incorrect data.
Make sure that the wireless interface is away from direct sunlight and other strong light source.
z Do not terminate arbitrarily during file transfer process between DUT and computers until
finished.
Otherwise DUT internal data integrity may be damaged, which is due to the violation of
DUT’s.
z Do not expose the unit to moisture, as this will damage the internal circuitry.
z Do not expose the unit to extreme temperatures. It should not be placed in direct sunlight or
in a closed vehicle, neither should it be placed near heaters nor other heat sources.
z Do not store the unit in a humid or dusty place.
z Use a soft, dry cloth to clean the unit. Do not use a wet cloth or any solvent.
z Do not drop the unit or handle the unit carelessly.
CAUTION:
z Never touch the pins of computer connection terminal. The internal circuits can be damaged
by a static electricity discharge. If this device requires any servicing, use only an ACTiSYS
service dealer, an ACTiSYS approved service facility, or an ACTiSYS repair service.
z When exchanging data with host computer, be sure the appropriate serial communication
port is available and is not in conflict with other peripheral device or software.

OVERVIEW
The ACT-IR100S-L/LM is an IrReady
TM
intelligent adapter. This enables the host system with IrDA
®
communication capabilities. The host system may be a serial printer, a modem, an industrial controller,
®
a data collector, a medical instrument, or any other device, that may benefit from being IrDA enabled.
The interface between ACT-IR100S-L/LM and the host is via a traditional asynchronous serial data port
(RS232C). Figure 2.1 shows the system block diagram.

APPLICATIONS
®
3.1 Embedded IrDA protocol stack
The mandatory IrDA protocol layers, IrLAP (comply with TEST frame capability requirement) and IrLMP
(including IAS) are handled by ACT-IR100S-L/LM, In addition, TinyTP, IrCOMM, IrLPT, IrOBEX
transport are all included.
The incoming/outgoing IrDA user data payload are buffered and then transferred to/from the host. The
baud rates of IrDA traffic and host interface are independent of each other. The flow controls of IrDA
traffic and host interface are also independent of each other.
3.2 SIR IrPHY encoder-decoder
The ACT-IR220VACF chip use in this adapter is an IrPHY encoder-decoder. It translates UART or
RS232 NRZ signals to/from IrPHY SIR code (RZI modulation).
The ACT-IR220VACF is a half-duplex infrared communication processor for exchanging data from
IR and RS232, ACT-IR220VACF cover data baud rate between 9.6kbps and 115.2kbps.
The IrPHY specification allows two kinds of modulations: 3/16 of a bit duration pulse, or minimum pulse
duration of 1.63 us, we use minimum pulse duration of 1.63 us to modulation bit data.

4.2 Baud Rate Setting
Jumpers SEL0-2 and serial EPROM settings are used to set the host interface RXD and TXD data rate.
Note that this is independent of the IrDA connection data rate.
Data format is always 8 data bits, no parity, and 1 stop bit. Note that this is compatible with end-to-end
data format using 7 data bits, parity, and 1 stop bit. That is, the application at both end of the IrDA link
may generate and check parity if 7 data bit is used.
The Host Interface can operate on eight different baud rates from 1.2kbps to 115.2kbps.

4.3 Ignore DSR
SEL3 open means ignore the physical DSR input, pretend that DSR is on.
This logical DSR is always used for connection control.
The physical DTR is used for connection indication. SEL3 has no effect on DTR.
When SEL3 close, DSR is used for connection control. Active DSR permits IrDA connection. Inactive
DSR forbids new connection and terminates existing connection.

The physical RTS is used for RXD flow-control. SEL4 has no effect on RTS.
When SEL4 close, CTS is used for flow control of TXD. Active CTS permits TXD. Inactive CTS forbids

4.5 EEPROM Function Disable
Jumper SEL7 is use to enable or disable EEPROM function.
If this function disable, IR100S-L/LM will use SEL0~SEL4 setting only.
If this function enable, IR100S-L/LM will use EEPROM setting and jumpers SEL0~SEL4 are ignored.

Note:
1. SEL5 ~ SEL6 are reserved for future use.
2. Independent of the SEL3 or SEL4, software flow control is automatically used and DTR always active
during IrLPT connection (this is used for printer host). In this case, if RXD received an X-OFF, TXD
transmission is blocked. If RXD received an X-ON, TXD transmission may resume. In addition,
hardware flow control may also be enabled.
3. For IrLPT, XON/XOFF flow control is always enabled. This is independent of SEL3 or SEL4.
4. In IrCOMM 9-wire connection IR100S-L always response DCE line status if line state is changed or
response Poll for Line Settings via IrLMP control channel.
Independent of the IR flow control, HOST data flow control and baudrate is not obey IrCOMM control
parameters.

HOW TO CONNECT IR100S-L/LM WITH HOST DEVICE
IR100S-L/LM uses a standard RS232 DTE port to connect with the host. If the host device is a Modem
like device and has a RS232 DCE port, then use a "straight cable". That is, connect the signals with the
same name from one side to the other.

If the host device is a PC like device and has a RS232 DTE port too, then you need to use a "Null
