    I've been looking for any DIY bar code reader IC over the net but I didn't find something concrete.

    I'm looking for any barcode reader with laser that I can connect to my microcontroller and get the Digital code of the code I scan.

    Can anybody help me please?

    Hi there and welcome to Electronics Point :)

    I don't think you'll find a single IC that will do that job. There are multiple parts to a bar code reader and many of them can't be manufactured onto an IC. You need to Google bar code reader module.

    worth a read if you get bored. its pretty much a laser that emits a beam then a detector detects (as they usually do) the dark and light spots giving different reads of high or low to your micro.
    bout the best you will find is a second hand barcode scanner gun that hooks up to USB. still a bit of programming to be done from there though
