IRDA: Infrared DATA Association
The Infrared Data Association (IrDA), in short, is a group of device manufacturers that has developed a standard for transmitting data via infrared light (IR) waves. It was founded in 1993 by some 50 companies. It provides specifications for the complete set of protocols for wireless IR communication. Its main task is to develop standards for the transmission of data through infrared light waves. Infrared light is used to transfer data from one device to another without using a cable or other connecting means. You just need to customize these devices with IrDA ports. Infrared data communication plays an important role in wireless data communications from the late 1990s to the early 2000s. IrDA technology is now out of use due to Bluetooth and WiFi development. It is still used in some environments where interference makes radio-based wireless technologies unusable.
