Super external IR Blaster

So I was working on this. It works but not as well as I expected. I am still investigating why. I still need to look at the waveform of the current through the FET to see if the constant current regulators are gumming things up. Not completely though because it does work, just not from outside the house.


I wish I could help but this is beyond my technical knowledge. That being said I am looking forward to seeing what kind of progress you make.

Thanks. I have some smart friends for the deep dive on power transistors but unfortunately I will be traveling for a couple weeks in Europe so this project will be on pause.
It has been a fun project and I am learning a lot and enjoy sharing it with the pod
