A method of sharing information between computer using and infra red signal. (Infrared is light that is beyond red in the spectrum. While the light is not visible to the human eye, infrared transmitters and receivers can send and receive infrared signals.)

Infra red Data Association Iridium
Despite there being a compatible IRDA standard for use in remote control applications, some companies have instead used the incompatible pulse system geared towards high-speed computers. Currently, some pre-programmed remotes based on the UEI database can be upgraded to operate these devices. See also: learning, pre-programmed, high frequency.
Edit / IrDA is a low-cost data communications link that uses infrared optical rays (850nm) for short distance wire free links. The link is line of site and the maximum link distance is usually less than 10 meters. It uses a polling configuration to provide a maximum data rate of 4 Mbps. It is generally used to connect computers to peripherals or in very limited applications for computer-to-computer link-ups. See Also: 802.15.1
Infrared, used for programs such as the universal remote
an international organization that creates and promotes interoperable, low-cost infrared data interconnection standards
A trade association of computer and chip manufactures creating standards for high speed communications for infrared media. It is commonly used by portable devices within an office to connect devices over short distances, typically 1 meter or less.
An industry standard for connecting devices, such as mobile phones and PDA's, by infrared.
The nfra ed ata ssociation ( IrDA) is a voluntary organization of various manufacturers working together to ensure that the infrared communications between different computers, PDAs, printers, digital cameras, remote controls, etc. are all compatible with each other regardless of brand. The term is also often used to designate an IrDA compliant infrared communications port on a device. Informally, a device able to communicate via IrDA compliant infrared is sometimes simply said to "have IrDA". There is also an earlier, incompatible, and usually slower type of infrared communications still in use called ASK.
A port that uses infrared waves for communication. Remote controls of a TV use this technology.
Infrared that meets the specifications for infrared wireless communication set by the Infrared Data Association.
Infrared Data Association. IrDA is an industry association which develops global standard for wireless communications using infrared light. IrDA also refers to a point-to-point, narrow angle (30° cone), ad-hoc data communication standard over short distance (less than 1 meter) that was developed by the Infrared Data Association. Currently in practice, IrDA is used mainly for file transfer and devices synchronization. However, to support advanced applications, IrDA develops new protocols such as for payment solution. Based on its data rate, IrDA is divided into several classes as follows: Acronym Description Data Rate SIR Serial IrDA 115 kbps FIR Fast IrDA 4 Mbps VFIR Very Fast IrDA 16 Mbps UFIR (100M-Ir) Ultra Fast IrDA 100 Mbps Most mobile phones and external IrDA adapters support SIR, while most notebooks support FIR. But if they conform to IrDA specifications, all IrDA classes must be interoperable. Also see ad-hoc network and infrared.
A phone that is irDA-enabled can connect wirelessly to a mobile computer with an infra-red port.
Infra-red data association (irDA) is the standard used by Motorola for infra-red communications between computer and mobile phone devices. Using irDA, you can connect devices together and transfer data between them without the need for cables. For example, to update the phone list on your irDA-enabled PC, you would line up the infra-red ports on each device and then transfer the phone information to your PC.
Infrared Data Association (IrDA) is agreed upon standard that enables data to be transferred between devices using infrared light instead of cables.
1. A suite of protocols for infrared (IR) exchange of data between two devices, up to 1 or 2 meters apart (20 to 30 cm for low-power devices). IrDA devices typically have throughput of up to either 115.2 Kbps or 4 Mbps. IrDA protocols are implemented in Symbian OS phones, many PDAs, printers and laptop computers. 2. The Infrared Data Association, the industry body that specifies IrDA protocols, originally founded by Hewlett-Packard and others.
Infrared Data Association. The IrDA is an industry-sponsored organization set up in 1993 to create international standards for the hardware and software used in infrared communication links. A suite of protocols for infrared (IR) exchange of data between two devices, up to 1 or 2 meters apart (20 to 30 cm for low-power devices). This association produces a standard for infrared data transmissions of up to 4 Mbps. The cost of this technology is extremely low and it is embedded in a number of hand-held devices, such as PDAs and cellular phones. Infrared communication involves a transceiver in both devices that communicate. The remote control of a TV uses the same technology.
Infrared Data Association. Standard for wireless infrared data transmission from 115 kbits/s (Serial IR or SIR) up to 4Mbits/s (Fast IR or FIR).
Infrared Data Association: Port that allows two devices to share data over infrared light waves if they're a few feet apart. The devices must have a clear line of sight.

Infrared Data Association. Standard for wireless data transfer over short distances using infrared light (like your TV remote control).
Industry-sponsored organization set up in 1993 to create international standards for the hardware and software used in low-speed infrared data communication links between mobile computing devices.
The Infrared Data Association came up with the standard wireless infrared data transmission protocol, which give roughly parallel port speeds between devices so equipped - provided they're close to each other, and there's nothing between their IrDA ports. IrDA is used in many ultraportable computers.
Wireless point-to-point data transmission based on infrared light. Data transmission takes place between devices such as mobile phones, PDAs or notebooks. Many PDA owners use them to send brief items, such as personal details, to each other when they meet.
Infrared Data Association, Walnut Creek, CA. A membership organization founded in 1993 and dedicated to developing standards for wireless, infrared transmission systems between computers. With IrDA ports, a laptop or PDA can exchange data with a desktop computer or use a printer without a cable connection. IrDA requires line-of-sight transmission like a TV remote control. IrDA products began to appear in 1995. The LaserJet 5P was one of the first printers with a built-in IrDA port. IrDA is comprised of the IrDA Serial IR physical layer (IrDA-SIR), which provides a half-duplex connection of up to 115.2 Kbps. This speed allows the use of a low-cost UART chip; however, higher non-UART extensions for 1.15 and 4 Mbps have also been defined. IrDA uses the Infrared Link Access Protocol (IrLAP), an adaptation of HDLC, as its data link protocol. The Infrared Link Management Protocol (IrLMP) is also used to provide a mechanism for handshaking and multiplexing of two or more different data streams simultaneously.
Infrared Data Association (IrDA) is a manufacturers group that develops standards for transmitting data using infrared wave frequencies.

Infrared Data Association. An industry-sponsored organization set up in 1993 to create international standards for the hardware and software used in infrared communication links. In this special form of radio transmission, a focused ray of light in the infrared frequency spectrum, measured in terahertz, or trillions of hertz (cycles per second), is modulated with information and sent from a transmitter to a receiver over a relatively short distance.
