    TSOP is just not that helpful.

    We need to know what your ICs are.

    You asked a question equivalent to -

    I bought a blue truck, can you tell me if it is gas or diesel and what its MPG would be?

    This TSOP is an infrared reciever normally in a 3 pin package with the part number TSOP17nn where nn is the frequency it is designed to recieve.

    Funny. I though he was asking about the package also.

    IE...I am using a PDIP chip and I want to control the world... ;)

    The datasheet should tell what the output power is; the input specs for your H Bridge will determine what needs to be done with the signal.

    Do you have a schematic? This way we can see how the signal path is affected and what voltage and current we are dealing with.

    I would ALWAYS start by downloading the datasheets for EVERY part you are using.

    That really doesn't help at all. ;) The most important step is to read them.

    Thanks, I have had one of those days where I am just waiting for the crap to hit the fan because I literally can't believe how well things are going, so I am just expecting something bad to turn it all around... Yeah yeah! That is a symptom of something so don't tell me because I have that figured out.

    But I read that joke and it just cracked me up.

    For you lesser life forms maybe.. I need only print them out and layer my bench with them.

    Osmosis and trial-and-error do the rest. ;)
