Topic: Is this a Nrf24L01? (Read 469 times) previous topic - next topic

Morning,

This is an image of a Nrf24L01

But there is an antenna module which I don't know if it is a Nrf24L01 or just a shield.


In this image this is a Nrf24L01 with an antenna or just an antenna accessory?


I know it's a dumb question but I was not born taught >_<

You can get nRF24L01+ modules with an antenna like that. They have a higher transmission power for longer range.

There is not enough detail in the image to be certain it is an nRF24 but if you have been told that it is then that is probably correct.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

In this website (banggood), they say it is a "Wireless module with antenna NRF24L01+PA+LNA", can you please confirm if it is a Nrf24L01 module there?

As far as I can tell it is a high power nRF24 with an antenna. If I wanted one of them I would buy it. So far I have only needed the low power versions like in your first link.

Okay, thank you very much for your help Robin!

That's the same ones I got from eBay.

Don't worry, those are NRF24L01+PA+LNA. They might not be original (straight from Nordic), but I guess since schematics are in the open public, any Chinese or some other company can make them.

They also work the same!

I LOVE fakes! Sooooooo cheap, yet they do the same job!

I don't know how you earn your living, but I wonder how pleased you will be when someone produces fakes that take away your job?

Humans have an incredibly short-sighted and selfish view when they look at the cost of things.

I'm 15, sir. I have no stable source of income.


But you are right. Those fakes steal jobs and profit from Arduino and Nordic (in this situation)

Just to add to the OP's original question, I guess if the advertised board is said to be nrf24l01 and the chip in the PCB says so, you are fine. Just test using Robin's Simple NRF24L01 Tutorial/Demo.

How great to have all of life ahead of you  (assuming Trump and North Korea don't put a stop to it :) )
