PAGE 2 of 2 - Scanning the output of an RC6 compatible Philips remote control
I happen to have a Philips remote control for my DVD player which operates with the RC6 protocol. With the proper triggering settings on my oscilloscope, i managed to capture two sequential transmissions from the remote control to measure the interval between them. To capture the IR signal, i connected the oscilloscope's channel to the output of a TSOP 1838 IR receiver.
|I connected the oscilloscope's probe to the output of the TSOP
||I captured two transmission cycles and i measured the interval: 83mSec
Afterwards, i changed the time/div to "zoom" into one transmission signal. This way i measured the time required for a complete transmission to finish: 23.1 mSec.
I also took two sequential snapshots after pressing button "1" twice, to demonstrate how the toggle bit works:
|Toggle bit = 1
||Toggle bit = 0
As for the carrier frequency...
With the same configuration that i used to detect the RC5 carrier frequency, i detected the carrier frequency of the RC6 protocol as well:
The carrier frequency is 36 KHz, similar to the RC5 protocol.

Very nice and informative.
Should you require IR Receiver samples,
just drop me mail.

@Shahzad and @sanghvi,
Apparently robots like remote control stuff!

Some information about RC6 can be found from patent document: http://www.freepatentsonline.com/5877702.pdf in which there is also a reference to Philips IC SAA3028.
