The VSOP584.. is designed for use in an IR receiver
application together with a photo pin diode. It is a
sophisticated receiver concept that is very sensitive to data
signals and compatible with the most common data formats
for IR remote control. On the other hand it is immune to DC
current caused by DC light sources such as tungsten bulbs.
The disturbance signal of fluorescent lamps is suppressed;
there are no unwanted pulses at the output.
