 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I recently picked up two of these breakout boards from SparkFun. I've already tried following this tutorial on how to hook the breakout board up to the Arduino Uno, and to program it. However, when asking the transceiver if it is available using the "Nrf2401::available()" function, it returns FALSE. I'm sure that I have wired the transceiver to my Arduino correctly following the hookup information provided in the tutorial. I don't know what is wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Perhaps you need to reread what available() is trying to tell you.

The available function returns the state of the DR (Data Ready) pin on the transmitter.

I think I solved the problem. The NRF2401 is not 5v tolerant, and I don't have a logic level converter wired up. I'm going to give it a shot.
