Connecting Radio Module

Wire things up

Use the dupont cables and follow the table below to connect the nRF24L01 to your Arduino board.

Note: Arduino Pro Mini does not have 3.3V output. You will have to use a power regulator 5V->3.3V (see purchase guide). The radio chip does not like 5V!

For more information about the radio chip, have a look here:
