Dixons (Currys.Digital) have been selling off IR remote controllers for the Playstation 2 (I think). I bought 2-off (controller and receiver pair) in Chester for 47p each and two more in Liverpool for 50p each.

The IR receiver is a 2YM4 but I cannot get any info about it from Google. If someone could just let me know the pin layout, that would be very helpful. Thanks.

Possible you may not find that information.

You might have to trace it out by hand.

Hi Jaybee,

Is is the controller pinout or the actual IR receiver pinout you wanted?

Try:

http://pinouts.ru/Game/playstation_9_pinout.shtml

Which gives some PS2 port info, if that helps?

Good luck,

- Tvmender

Thanks tvmender that is very helpful.

It's the pinout for the three-legged IR receiver that I am looking for (having extracted one from the receiver).

If it's only three legged, then one pin will be +5v, a GND and an output pin. It should be very easy to trace them from the PCB you took it off.

Hi Jaybee,

I agree with Terry.

They are usually bandpass receivers, one I use is a HIM602 which has a peak response at about 38KHz but there are devices at other frequencies, 52KHz is common too.

I have used these in many circuits and find them to be an excellent time and component saving device, not needing to filter out too much noise from the data output and having to engineer in a daylight filter.

Good luck,

Just check the state of the output before use. Some are active low (idle at +5v), notably the Siemens ones, others are active high & idle at 0v - like the Sharp ones.

Thank you all very much gentlemen. Between you you have answered my question completely.

Special thanks to TVMender for pointing me to the pinouts site - what a mine of useful information!

Thanks again.

John B.
