This technical brief demonstrates the operation of the MCP2150 with Microsoft Windows CE Operating System (OS). The MCP2150 is a protocol handler supporting IrDA standards plus an encoder/decoder. This allows the MCP2150 to be used as a “Virtual Connector,” a wireless link between an embedded application and an IrDA standard host. This host can be a handheld device using Microsoft Windows CE. Windows CE is an excellent host platform for use with the MCP2150 because of the light weight, low cost, ease of use, and portability of these devices.
