The nRF24L01+ are RF transceiver modules that can be used for wireless communications. They operate at a voltage range of 1.9 – 3.6V for power. This nRF24L01 breakout adapter can be powered off 5V-12V and supplies well regulated 3.3V to the NRF24L01 socket. It also breaks out the pins for easier hookup and has a power on LED.
- nRF24L01 Breakout Adapter
KEY FEATURES OF nRF24L01+ BREAKOUT ADAPTER:
- 3.3V Voltage Regulator
- Labeled breakout pins
- Power LED
The module has a 2-pin male header for making power connections.
1 x 2 Header (male)
- GND – Ground. Connect to ground on microcontroller or separate power supply if used
- VCC – 5-12V. May be powered off the 5V from the microcontroller or a separate power supply.
The module has a 1×6-pin male breakout header for making connections to the microcontroller.
1 x 6 Header (male).
- CE – Chip Enable. Sets whether module is in RX or TX mode.
- CSN – SPI Chip Select
- SCK – SPI Clock
- MOSI – SPI Slave Data Input
- MISO – SPI Slave Data Output
- IRQ – Maskable Interrupt
The adapter has a 2×4-pin female header that mates with the nRF24L01+ module. These pins mirror the connections made on the 1×6 header and 1×2 power header. Be sure to observe proper orientation when inserting the module into the adapter. The module extends off the end of the adapter and not over it.
