The " CIR " portion of the question refers to Consumer InfraRed. ENE is a low cost low power consumer chip manufacturer who manufacturers chips used in many different modern laptops. The InfraRed (IR) receiver is used to accept incoming commands from remote controll devices. Most modern laptops have a CIR receiver built in to allow a remote provided by a third party to work with the laptop as a mouse or other controll device during instances such as a presentation or multimedia browsing.
