    Hi guys i just got a couple of IR recievers from a TV store and i have uploaded the picture and i would like to know what is their name and what are the pins and their names. The flat one has 3 pins and the other one has 5 pins, i would like to use them for my proximity detector project, even if u have ideas on my project plz tell me and it must detect up to 2-3 inches. Thx for all the help waiting for answers eagerly. :D

    The complete lack of part numbers has me stopped.

    If your IR receivers came out of a Chinese TV then you will probbably not find a datasheet printed in English.
    We know all about European TSOPxxxx IR receivers that are made by Vishay.

    I think the one with the 3pin is a TSOP from vishay. But wat is the other one ?
