Nordic Serial Interface Board

This is a simple serial to USB board that works with the nRF24L01, nRF2401A, and RF-24G Nordic transceivers. Comes with an ATMEGA328 preloaded with code that allows the transceivers to act as pass through serial devices (sends 4 characters at a time). When powered up, the board will determine which Nordic device has been attached (STAT0 will blink for an nRF24L01, or it will default to an nRF2401A and STAT1 will blink) and run the appropriate code. The LEDs then blink sequentially upon receiving packets over the RF link.

You will need to use VCP FTDI drivers, so that your USB connection comes up as a COM port. Then all you need to do is use a terminal program to communicate with the Nordic transceivers. This revision fixes the silkscreen error in the previous version.

Nordic Serial Interface Board Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Soldering

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

1 Soldering

Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

2 Programming

Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
