(IrDA-C, formerly IrBUS) Infrared standard from IrDA. IrDA Control is a low speed communication standard that allows cordless peripherals such as keyboards, mice, game pads, and joysticks to interact with intelligent host devices. Host devices include PCs, home appliances, game machines, and television and web set-top boxes.

IrDA Control supports data rates of 75 Kbps at up to 8 metres, and is designed to integrate with devices that use USB HID. Parts and products featuring IrDA Control are expected in 1998.
