Tutorial 0 for the nRF24L01 uploaded

OK, so I got studious tonight and decided to finish up Tutorial 0 for the nRF24L01. It is basically just background on the 24L01 chip and my preferred breakout, the MiRF-v2 from Spark Fun. I tried to give information on every aspect of the chip I could, including helping to explain connections, setup, instructions, registers, etc. I also tried to give hints and help on snags that I have run into in the past using the chip. Check out this tutorial here.

Two more tutorials are coming, and they are pretty much intro tutorials to get a simple link going. In the first tutorial, I will show you how to take data from the serial port of your computer port and send it to a remote microcontroller over the RF link, and then have the remote microcontroller send it back to the PC. In the second tutorial, I take basically the same code, but add in some functionality for Enhanced Shockburst transmission/reception with auto-acknowledgement and -retransmit.

At the bottom of page 3 in Tutorial 0, you repeat MOSI - "you guessed it, master out slave in", and then you say "which the slave sends data to the master" ... you might want to change the "guess" part to MISO, since it matches the "slave sends data".

Hi Brennen I don't know if you still write on this blog but I had some questions regarding your code for the nrf24L01 device. If there is an alternative way to reach please let me know.

Best Regards,
