After a many days of research I turned to stack overflow once again to help me.
I'm looking for High speed IR receiver circuit for laser-tag weapon. Requirements are High noise cancelation, high distance, high speed and low latency.
For obvious reason I can't use IrDA because of complicated protocols which are big overhead to latency. The only suitable solution for me is TSOP7000, but Vishay discontinued it's production.
Is there any way to build a receiver circuit, that replaces TSOP7000 or is there any replacement of this great receiver ?
Thank you very much.
EDIT: High level expectations: 16bits of data@<2ms.
For obvious reasons there is a problem with data collision. In ideal case, there will be one transmitter (gun) and one receiver (sensor) transferring data at once. But the main problem of laser tag guns is the collision. If multiple guns shoot at one sensor in the same time a data collision can occur. That's whole transfer should be executed in shortest time possible. IrDA cause massive overhead.
Most of the classical lasertag equipment is used in dark rooms completely restricted from son or lighting. That's the reason I need to think of the filters, to make game playable at classic hall.
Obviously, the data loss caused by technical background should be as small as possible. (I don't want some raging kid to smash my weapon on the ground)
