Spiralbrain's Blog: PIC Kit 2 IR capture tool

An awesome use for a PICkit 2, via Hack-A-Day.  Note that this only works with a PICkit 2 - the upgraded PICkit 3 does not include the logic analyzer function.

 

PIC Kit 2 IR capture tool

The PIC Kit 2 is a brilliant tool that can be used as a programmer, debugger, serial receiver and for signal capture. In many ways it is more versatile than the PIC Kit 3. One of my projects required IR capture to duplicate remote codes. I decided to create this small module that plugs directly on the PIC Kit 2 and can be used to capture IR codes for almost any IR remote available today. The software supplied from Microchip also allows to approximately measure the timing which makes it quite handy.

The circuit is pretty simple and can be wired in 5-10 minutes

I just posted it here. It's not my idea nor do I have anything to do with it.
