Connecting a device to the 2805 / 2806 Fiber Optic Transmitter/Receiver Pair.

Date Posted: 01/06/03
I have chosen your Fiber Optic Transmitter/Receiver Pair model 2805 TR/2806 REC for my project and I must connect
this element to a microcontroller (see below).
The microcontroller is PIC 16C63 Microchip. Please help me connect the right pin from PIC16C63 to the right pin
From PIC16C63 microcontroller, use pin #17 (RC6/TX/CK) to 2805 input #1. Connect pin #19 VSS to ground pin
#11 or 12 or 13 or 14.
From PIC16C63 controller, use pin #18 (RC7/RX/DT) to pin #1 or #2 of 2806 receiver. Pin #19 VSS or pin #8 to ground
pin #20 or 21.
Please note you will need to provide +5 volts DC power to 2805 transmitter and +5V and -5V to receiver 2806.
If you are going to communicate bi-directionally, it will be better to use S.I. Tech #2865. This is a PCB with
fiber optic transmitter and receiver. A ribbon cable is provided for ease of connection. This requires power and
voltages as shown on 2865 data sheet.
