Category talk:Neo1973 Hardware
IrDA supported by Samsung S3C2410 and Samsung S3C2442
The processor the neo1973 Phase 1/Phase 2 are using/planning to use has native support for IrDA.
This is a legacy form of I/O but could be supported with the current internal hardware.
Having the ability to communicate with older mobiles plus hopefully communicate with your average TV/DVD player would be a bonus.
I assume this would have been discussed before.
