IrDA logoFounded in 1993, IrDA is short for Infrared Data Association. IrDA is a group of hardware manufacturers working together to create standards for infrared data transmission. Hardware devices that conform to IrDA standards are capable of working with one another, but they may only be separated by a few feet and need a clear line of sight. IrDA connections have transmission rates similar to parallel ports.
