|Description||NEC infrared remote control protocol|
The ir_nec protocol decoder supports the NEC infrared remote control protocol including the 16bit address extension.

Unlabeled LED panel remote
This remote uses the Extended NEC Protocol, address
0xEA41. It uses 8 buttons, but the PCB has space for a total of 16 buttons.
This is a pulse-distance based IR protocol. Symbols are determined by checking the span between IR bursts. After an AGC adjustment phase, several fields are sent: address, and command. Another IR burst after the last bit symbol ends the IR frame.
The standard NEC protocol sends address and command values in verbatim as well as in complement form, which improves reliability when the fields are checked for consistency, and as a byproduct results in constant length of a frame. The extended NEC protocol uses 16bits for the address field, and omits the complement. Users need to specify the protocol variant, the decoder cannot automatically detect it (assuming extended just because the address fields are not complements is too weak, the error could be real and must get flagged).
