SL486 Testing facilities.
|Typical IR application based on the
C8 set's the Pulse width of the internal pulse
We have our own SL486 test jig. This allows us to test
functionality of the part.
Our standard functionality test checks the following
1). Operation at 5V
2). Current Test
3). IR Output Test
4). Inverted OP or Stretched Output Test.
The SL486 had a unique Gyrator which helped the device
perform well even in direct sunlight.
In indoor applications a distance of 25 metres could be
achieved using a IR Handset.
