Thank you for your help.
I do not have experience in doing "modulation".
Would you mind to tell me more about how to implement this in MCU?
Do you mind that I turn on and off my IR source at 40kHz?
And receive a 40khz signal?
but my IR source is so weak and the background IR is varied...Do I need to
handle this issue?
