Here we have a breakout of Nordic's nRF24LE1-24 microcontroller module. This chip is similar to the 24LU1 in that it has an on-chip 8051 microcontroller as well as a built-in nRF24L01+ radio! The breakout has all necessary components on-board to get you up and running quickly. The chip comes pre-programmed with a serial bootloader that only requires TX, RX, /RESET, and GND to work!
MCU: Enhanced 8-bit 8051-compatible microcontroller with 16 kB program flash memory, 1 kbytes SRAM, 1 kbyte NVRAM, nRF24L01+-compatible RF transceiver, 3 16-bit timers/counters, encryption/decryption co-processor, 7-input 10-bit ADC, 7 GPIO, 32-bit multiplication-division unit, SPI, UART, 2-wire, PWM
On-chip bootloader is compatible with SDCC C compiler
On-board 300 mA 3.3V regulator
On-board chip antenna (no external antenna needed!)
Up to 2Mbps on-air data rate
Air-compatible with nRF24LU1, nRF24L01, nRF2401A, nRF2402, nRF24E1, and nRF24E2
SDK for use with SDCC (currently incomplete)
MAX3232 Circuit for Programming
PC-side Bootloader written in C# (requires external MAX3232 circuit shown above to work properly!)
On-chip Bootloader Source Code (assembles with AS31)
Example RF test program
