  • Patent number: 8027594
    Abstract: A photodiode receives an infrared signal transmitted from a transmitter. A current distributing unit outputs a detection current Id output from the photodiode as a first detection current Id1 and a second detection current Id2 to a subsequent first current-to-voltage conversion amplifier and a subsequent second current-to-voltage conversion amplifier respectively. The first and second current-to-voltage conversion amplifiers convert the detection currents into voltages with current-to-voltage conversion gains g1 and g2. The current-to-voltage conversion gains g1 and g2 of the first and second current-to-voltage conversion amplifiers are set such that ranges of signal levels in which the distributed detection currents Id1 and Id2 can significantly be amplified differ from each other.

  • Publication number: 20090047029
    Abstract: A waveform shaping apparatus has a first integrating circuit 152, a second integrating circuit 153, and a first comparison circuit 154. The first and second integrated circuits 152 and 153 are connected in series with each other, and so operate that, when a voltage signal loner than a predetermined period and larger than a predetermined amplitude is fed to the first integrating circuit 152, the voltage signal is made higher than a first reference voltage and is then output to he second integrating circuit 153 and, when the voltage signal fed to the first integrating circuit 152 is shorter than the predetermined period, the voltage signal is made lower than the first reference voltage and is then outputted from the second integrating circuit 153. The first comparison circuit 154 compares a voltage contained in the voltage signal outputted from the second integrating circuit 153 with the first reference voltage, and outputs the comparison result.

  • Publication number: 20070285155
    Abstract: A discrimination circuit of the present invention checks whether a received signal is noise or a signal that is repeated with interposed rest time periods, and is provided with a low-pass filter that has a cut-off frequency that is lower than the frequency of the noise but higher than the reciprocal of a total period of one frame of the signal that is repeated with interposed rest time periods and the rest time period, and a judgment circuit that judges, according to an output of the low-pass filter, whether the received signal is noise or a signal that is repeated with interposed rest time periods. With this configuration, it is possible to discriminate between noise and a signal that is repeated with interposed rest time periods, and achieve miniaturization.
