CUSTOMER MUST PURCHASE THE NRF6700 IN ORDER TO WORK The nRF24LE1 integrates a fully-featured nRF24L01+ 2.4GHz transceiver core including Nordic’s proven Enhanced ShockBurst™ hardware link layer. It delivers true ULP operation with peak currents low enough to run on coin cell batteries. The nRF24LE1 also integrates an enhanced 8051 mixed signal MCU core featuring fewer clock cycles per instruction than legacy 8051 devices. Most instructions need just one or two clock cycles leading to an average performance improvement of 8X using the MIPS (Million Instructions Per Second) benchmark. This high performance combined with 16kbytes of on-chip flash plus 1kbyte of SRAM ensures the processing platform is powerful enough to run both the RF protocol stack and application layer with ease. A wide range of peripherals and power saving modes support the RF protocol stack. A ULP 32kHz crystal oscillator provides high accuracy timing for low report rate synchronous protocols and a 16MHz RC oscillator provides fast start-up times from idle. The 32kHz oscillator can provide timing accurate enough for higher report rate protocols without requiring an external crystal. A security co-processor supports AES encrypted wireless communication. The nRF24LE1 provides a range of nanoamp and microamp idle modes specifically designed for ULP RF protocol stacks. Further benefits include higher precision protocol timing, lower power consumption, and improved co-existence performance. For the application layer the nRF24LE1 offers a rich set of interfaces and peripherals including an SPI, 2-wire, UART, 12-bit ADC, PWM and an analog comparator. As such, the nRF24LE1 is the ideal single chip solution for wireless applications including mice, keyboards, remote controls, game controllers, sports/healthcare sensors, toys, and active RFID tags. The nRF24LE1 is supported by a comprehensive set of development tools. This includes being the first part to be compatible with the brand new Nordic Semiconductor nRFgo evaluation and development platform. At the core of this platform is the nRFgo Starter Kit (nRF6700) which provides a generic evaluation and development platform for all Nordic ULP 2.4GHz radios. The nRF24LE1 Development Kit complements the Starter Kit by including radio modules and a complete Software Development Kit (SDK). To get started with the nRF24LE1 designers need both a Starter Kit and a Development Kit. However, upcoming products from Nordic Semiconductor will also be compatible with the Starter Kit so users will only need to purchase the Development Kit relevant to these products in future. The nRFgo Starter Kit is an ideal platform for developing ULP applications. It includes two motherboards with standard sockets for Nordic radio modules, plus a rich set of standard interfaces and prototyping facilities. The motherboards also offer built-in support for the Nordic Semiconductor nRFProbe – a high-performance fully-featured hardware debug solution for Nordic radios with built in microcontrollers such as the nRF24LE1. The included nRFgo Studio PC software package also enables quick and easy RF evaluation and testing. The nRF24LE1 Development Kit comes in three variants, one for each package type. The SDK includes full support for Keil µVision IDE, including a plug-in for the nRFProbe hardware debugger. A library of Hardware Abstraction Layers and complete example applications makes it easy for firmware developers to take advantage of all the nRF24LE1’s advanced features.
