Detailed Description

Send and receive unaddressed, unreliable datagrams by nRF24L01 and compatible transceivers.

Supported transceivers include:

This base class provides basic functions for sending and receiving unaddressed, unreliable datagrams of arbitrary length to 28 octets per packet. Use one of the Manager classes to get addressing and acknowledgement reliability, routing, meshes etc.

The nRF24L01 (http://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/Wireless/Nordic/nRF24L01P_Product_Specification_1_0.pdf) is a low-cost 2.4GHz ISM transceiver module. It supports a number of channel frequencies in the 2.4GHz band and a range of data rates.

This library provides functions for sending and receiving messages of up to 28 octets on any frequency supported by the nRF24L01, at a selected data rate.

Several nRF24L01 modules can be connected to an Arduino, permitting the construction of translators and frequency changers, etc.

The nRF24 transceiver is configured to use Enhanced Shockburst with no acknowledgement and no retransmits. TX_ADDR and RX_ADDR_P0 are set to the network address. If you need the low level auto-acknowledgement feature supported by this chip, you can use our original NRF24 library at http://www.airspayce.com/mikem/arduino/NRF24

Naturally, for any 2 radios to communicate that must be configured to use the same frequency and data rate, and with identical network addresses.

Example Arduino programs are included to show the main modes of use.

Packet Format

All messages sent and received by this class conform to this packet format, as specified by the nRF24L01 product specification:

Connecting nRF24L01 to Arduino

The electrical connection between the nRF24L01 and the Arduino require 3.3V, the 3 x SPI pins (SCK, SDI, SDO), a Chip Enable pin and a Slave Select pin. If you are using the Sparkfun WRL-00691 module, it has a voltage regulator on board and can be should with 5V VCC if possible. The examples below assume the Sparkfun WRL-00691 module

Connect the nRF24L01 to most Arduino's like this (Caution, Arduino Mega has different pins for SPI, see below). Use these same connections for Teensy 3.1 (use 3.3V not 5V Vcc).

Arduino Sparkfun WRL-00691
5V-----------VCC (3.3V to 7V in)
pin D8-----------CE (chip enable in)
SS pin D10----------CSN (chip select in)
SCK pin D13----------SCK (SPI clock in)
MOSI pin D11----------SDI (SPI Data in)
MISO pin D12----------SDO (SPI data out)
IRQ (Interrupt output, not connected)
GND----------GND (ground in)

For an Arduino Leonardo (the SPI pins do not come out on the Digital pins as for normal Arduino, but only appear on the ICSP header)

Leonardo Sparkfun WRL-00691
5V-----------VCC (3.3V to 7V in)
pin D8-----------CE (chip enable in)
SS pin D10----------CSN (chip select in)
SCK ICSP pin 3----------SCK (SPI clock in)
MOSI ICSP pin 4----------SDI (SPI Data in)
MISO ICSP pin 1----------SDO (SPI data out)
IRQ (Interrupt output, not connected)
GND----------GND (ground in)

and initialise the NRF24 object like this to explicitly set the SS pin NRF24 nrf24(8, 10);

For an Arduino Due (the SPI pins do not come out on the Digital pins as for normal Arduino, but only appear on the SPI header). Use the same connections for Yun with 5V or 3.3V.

Due Sparkfun WRL-00691
3.3V-----------VCC (3.3V to 7V in)
pin D8-----------CE (chip enable in)
SS pin D10----------CSN (chip select in)
SCK SPI pin 3----------SCK (SPI clock in)
MOSI SPI pin 4----------SDI (SPI Data in)
MISO SPI pin 1----------SDO (SPI data out)
IRQ (Interrupt output, not connected)
GND----------GND (ground in)

and initialise the NRF24 object with the default constructor NRF24 nrf24;

For an Arduino Mega:

Mega Sparkfun WRL-00691
5V-----------VCC (3.3V to 7V in)
pin D8-----------CE (chip enable in)
SS pin D53----------CSN (chip select in)

MOSI pin D51----------SDI (SPI Data in)
MISO pin D50----------SDO (SPI data out)
IRQ (Interrupt output, not connected)
GND----------GND (ground in)

and you can then use the constructor RH_NRF24(8, 53).

For an Itead Studio IBoard Pro http://imall.iteadstudio.com/iboard-pro.html, connected by hardware SPI to the ITDB02 Parallel LCD Module Interface pins:

IBoard Signal=ITDB02 pin Sparkfun WRL-00691

SCK D52 32----------SCK (SPI clock in)
MOSI D51 34----------SDI (SPI Data in)
MISO D50 30----------SDO (SPI data out)
IRQ (Interrupt output, not connected)
GND 39----------GND (ground in)

And initialise like this:

RH_NRF24 nrf24(2, 29);

For an Itead Studio IBoard Pro http://imall.iteadstudio.com/iboard-pro.html, connected by software SPI to the nRF24L01+ Module Interface pins. CAUTION: performance of software SPI is very slow and is not compatible with other modules running hardware SPI.

GND 6----------GND (ground in)

and initialise like this:

RH_NRF24 nrf24(RPI_V2_GPIO_P1_22, RPI_V2_GPIO_P1_24);

See the example program and Makefile in examples/raspi. Requires bcm2835 library to be previously installed.

cd examples/raspi
make
sudo ./RasPiRH
You can override the default settings for the CSN and CE pins
in the NRF24() constructor if you wish to connect the slave select CSN to other than the normal one for your
Arduino (D10 for Diecimila, Uno etc and D53 for Mega)
Caution: on some Arduinos such as the Mega 2560, if you set the slave select pin to be other than the usual SS
pin (D53 on Mega 2560), you may need to set the usual SS pin to be an output to force the Arduino into SPI
master mode.
Caution: this module has not been proved to work with Leonardo, at least without level
shifters between the nRF24 and the Leonardo. Tests seem to indicate that such level shifters would be required
with Leonardo to make it work.
It is possible to have 2 radios conected to one arduino, provided each radio has its own
CSN and CE line (SCK, SDI and SDO are common to both radios)
\par SPI Interface
You can interface to nRF24L01 with with hardware or software SPI. Use of software SPI with the RHSoftwareSPI
class depends on a fast enough processor and digitalOut() functions to achieve a high enough SPI bus frequency.
If you observe reliable behaviour with the default hardware SPI RHHardwareSPI, but unreliable behaviour
with Software SPI RHSoftwareSPI, it may be due to slow CPU performance.
Initialisation example with hardware SPI
\code
#include <RH_NRF24.h>
RH_NRF24 driver;
RHReliableDatagram manager(driver, CLIENT_ADDRESS);

Initialisation example with software SPI

#include <RH_NRF24.h>
#include <RHSoftwareSPI.h>
RHSoftwareSPI spi;
RH_NRF24 driver(8, 10, spi);
RHReliableDatagram manager(driver, CLIENT_ADDRESS);
Example programs

Several example programs are provided.

Radio Performance

Frequency accuracy may be debatable. For nominal frequency of 2401.000 MHz (ie channel 1), my Yaesu VR-5000 receiver indicated the center frequency for my test radios was 2401.121 MHz. Its not clear to me if the Yaesu is the source of the error, but I tend to believe it, which would make the nRF24l01 frequency out by 121kHz.

The measured power output for a nRF24L01p with PA and LNA set to 0dBm output is about 18dBm.

Radio operating strategy and defaults

The radio is enabled all the time, and switched between TX and RX modes depending on whether there is any data to send. Sending data sets the radio to TX mode. After data is sent, the radio automatically returns to Standby II mode. Calling waitAvailable() or waitAvailableTimeout() starts the radio in RX mode.

The radio is configured by default to Channel 2, 2Mbps, 0dBm power, 5 bytes address, payload width 1, CRC enabled 2 byte CRC, No Auto-Ack mode. Enhanced shockburst is used. TX and P0 are set to the Network address. Node addresses and decoding are handled with the RH_NRF24 module.

Memory

Memory usage of this class is minimal. The compiled client and server sketches are about 6000 bytes on Arduino. The reliable client and server sketches compile to about 8500 bytes on Arduino. RAM requirements are minimal.

Examples:
RasPiRH.cpp.
