nRF24L01+ IC is designed for operation in the worldwide ISM frequency band at 2.400 to 2.4835 GHz On-board Antenova A5839 Rufa 2.4 GHz SMD chip antenna Supports data rate of 250 Kbps, 1 Mbps, and 2 Mbps Suitable for low-power designs SPI communication interface
nRF C Click is an add-on board in mikroBUS form factor. It features a Nordic nRF24L01+ (also called nRF24L01P) 2.4 GHz transceiver module with an embedded baseband protocol engine as well as a 2.4 GHz SMD chip antenna. The board supports an air data rate of 250 Kbps, 1 Mbps and 2 Mbps and it is suitable for low-power designs. Typical applications include wireless PC peripherals, remotes, VoIP headsets, game controllers, sensors, home and commercial automation, active RFID, toys, etc. The nRF C Click communicates with a target board microcontroller via mikroBUS SPI (SDI, SDO, SCK, CS#), CE and INT lines.
Note: This board is designed to use 3.3V power supply only. It has an LED power indicator.
There are three types of nRF Click board. Besides this one with a chip antenna, there is a version with PCB trace antenna and a version with an SMA connector.
mikroBUS Click Boards Overview Click boards come with header pins that you must solder yourself. After that, they just plug directly into a mikroBUS socket. mikroBUS is a specially designed plug-and-play pinout standard. The sockets are found on Clicker boards, these mikromedia shields, and development systems from mikroElektronika (V7 systems and later).
You also can connect Click boards to many other popular platforms via these adapters:
- PC — Click USB Adapter (MIKROE-1433)
- Arduino — Arduino UNO click shield (MIKROE-1581)
- Raspberry Pi — Pi click shield (MIKROE-1512)
- BeagleBone Black — BeagleBone click shield (MIKROE-1596)
- STM32F3 Discovery — STM32F3 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1447)
- STM32F4 Discovery — STM32F4 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1481)
- Stellaris LM4F120 LaunchPad / Tiva TM4C123G LaunchPad — Click BOOSTER PACK (MIKROE-1363)
In addition, it is royalty-free to add mikroBUS to your own designs. Visit the mikroBUS Category to see the full line of Click boards.
