The NEC IR transmission protocol uses pulse distance encoding of the message bits. Each pulse burst (mark – RC transmitter ON) is 562.5µs in length, at a carrier frequency of 38kHz (26.3µs). Logical bits are transmitted as follows:

• Logical '0' – a 562.5µs pulse burst followed by a 562.5µs space, with a total transmit time of 1.125ms
• Logical '1' – a 562.5µs pulse burst followed by a 1.6875ms space, with a total transmit time of 2.25ms

When transmitting or receiving remote control codes using the NEC IR transmission protocol, the WB_IRRC performs optimally when the carrier frequency (used for modulation/demodulation) is set to 38.222kHz.

When a key is pressed on the remote controller, the message transmitted consists of the following, in order:

• a 9ms leading pulse burst (16 times the pulse burst length used for a logical data bit)
• a 4.5ms space
• the 8-bit address for the receiving device
• the 8-bit logical inverse of the address
• the 8-bit command
• the 8-bit logical inverse of the command
• a final 562.5µs pulse burst to signify the end of message transmission.

The four bytes of data bits are each sent least significant bit first. Figure 1 illustrates the format of an NEC IR transmission frame, for an address of `00h` (`00000000b`) and a command of `ADh` (`10101101b`). Figure 1. Example message frame using the NEC IR transmission protocol.

Notice from Figure 1 that it takes:

• 27ms to transmit both the 16 bits for the address (address + inverse) and the 16 bits for the command (command + inverse). This comes from each of the 16 bit blocks ultimately containing eight '0's and eight '1's - giving (8 * 1.125ms) + (8 * 2.25ms).
• 67.5ms to fully transmit the message frame (discounting the final 562.5µs pulse burst that signifies the end of message).

## Repeat Codes

If the key on the remote controller is kept depressed, a repeat code will be issued, typically around 40ms after the pulse burst that signified the end of the message. A repeat code will continue to be sent out at 108ms intervals, until the key is finally released. The repeat code consists of the following, in order:

• a 9ms leading pulse burst
• a 2.25ms space
• a 562.5µs pulse burst to mark the end of the space (and hence end of the transmitted repeat code).

Figure 2 illustrates the transmission of two repeat codes after an initial message frame is sent. Figure 2. Example repeat codes sent for a key held down on the transmitting remote controller.
