Nick, it needs to be the Sharp part?
Digikey has some smaller in a TO-92 format (almost),
and... cost less...

The Digikey equivalent to Sharp is the p/n 160-1033-ND,
cost $3.45 (32.7kHz) or p/n 160-1060-ND, $2.88 (40 kHz),
while the TO-92 (almost) format has two versions, with
side or top pins, from 33,36,38,40,56.8kHz, everyone
cost $2.50 each.  Take a look at catalog Jan-Mar99,
page 575 bottom right. This miniaturized styles are
just like a molded chip, different from the Sharp style
in a small metal box.

Just a note, they are considerably larger than a T0-92, but still small.
also, they have discontinued the bigger ones.

Thanks to all for your responses ... but I still haven't been
able to locate a supplier for the GP1U581Y IR detector.
A search of B.G.Micro's and DigiKey's web sites produced
no results.  The two local Radio Shacks stock a similar
unit by Everlight, but the IR window is on the top of the
box instead of the front.  DigiKey does stock a unit by
LiteOn that is similar, but the supplier of my IRPD PIC
says that the LiteOn unit will not work with the 12508 as
Any more ideas?
