Hi im new to this community and just got a cy8ckit-42 and have lots to learn.

   

 My main reason/project is to make a controller for my Fishtank Led bars.

   

So im not sure where to Start but I need to make a Ir decoder then a Sender to control them.Does anyone have a Example or can help with this Project?

Welcome in the forum, Eric!

   

So you will have to get another PSoC kit for the receiver. I would suggest you to purchase a CY8CKIT-043, cheapest solution.

   

You'll need a photo diode connected to the PSoC and probably an amplifier for the (weak) signal. Have a look at the -043 schematics how to do that, for the programming there is an example project (in Creator Start Page -> Kits).

   

For the Sender I's suggest to use a PWM component triggering an IR LED with a frequency of  ~1-2kHz to make it easy to distinguish the signal from ambient light.

A while back there was also a discussion about how to implement a RC5 decoder. Look in the forums for it, it might be helpful.
