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.
