I've purchased a 36 kHz IR receiver (TSOP38436) but I'm still learning about electronics and I'm not sure how to connect this to my micro controller (Arduino). (Also, I'm using 36 kHz instead of the standard 38 kHz for my project because it requires 36 kHz)
1) The data sheet shows a Supply Voltage of 2.5 V - 5.5 V. Do I need to limit the current? The data sheet also shows a Max Supply Current of 3 mA, and a typical supply current of 0.35 mA (at 3.3v).
Does this mean I should use something like a 3.3k ohm resistor with 3.3v to supply around 1 mA to the receiver?
2) The Application Circuit shows a resistor and circuit (R1 and C1) but I think they are only recommended for supply voltages less than 2.8v.
How would I know what values to use here?
3) Stupid question, but if I directly connect the receiver to an Arduino 3.3v with no resistor, then will that short circuit and blow the resistor sending too much current?
