I have two V38238 IR receiver's but one acts as active low and other as active high. What could be the reason? Is there a difference in the part number?( both had 69 DRZD V38238 specified on it ) I am using the following IR receiver circuit. I checked both the receiver's using the same circuit.
I have never seen a tsop symbol like the one you have posted. However, unless your tsop is damaged, you might be doing it wrong. (Also, provide a link to the datasheet when you ask a question.)
Here is the mechanical drawing from the datasheet:
And this is the circuit from the datasheet that you should use:
R1 = 33 ohm to 1 kohm
C1 > 0.1 uF
Also, the output can be directly connected to a micro-controller. You have made a voltage divider. You should try getting rid of that.
