IrDA?

Anyone done anything with IR hardware and QNX? I have a need to
interface an IR module to my SBC and am looking for anyone who’s done
similar to maybe give me a gentle push inthe right direction. My SBC
will be talking to a Palm device using the IrDA protocol, so I need IrDA
hardware (PC/104?) and support libraries etc I guess. Is there an IrDA
stack available for QNX?

Can replies please be copied to my email address as well as the group?

Cheers,
Gavin.

Maybe I’m wrong, because I did not use IrDA stuff. But as far as I

understood, IrDA is on the Software side just another serial port. So You
should be able to use a serial driver.
If I’m wrong, please tell me how it’s like, cause I do not know it
exactly.

Hi Timo,

No, it’s more than a serial connection. There is a protocol stack that
needs to be there to support IrDA. If you’re interested take a look at
www.irda.org

Thanks,
Gavin.
