How to use NRF Wireless Module 24LE1
In our previous article we have learned the basic information on the NRF wireless module 24LE1. The next step after knowing all the theoretical aspects is how to use the module and burn codes into it to use in projects.

We know that before using any controller, we have to meet following basic requirements:
|Programmer Pin #||Programmer Pin Description||NRF24LU1/NRF24LE1|

Make sure the VCC output is right. If you choose 5V output but connect it to 3v3 device, you may damage your device.
If the signal connection is wrong, the software may be dead. Unplug the device and close the software. Check the wiring and start again.
We also need a software along with hardware burner, to choose hex file and set various parameters. We will use mpro software which is compatible with the mpro hardware burner. In the software, we will provide chip library which contains details about target microcontroller which is NRF24LE1 in our case. Both the software and its chip library can be downloaded from here.
After we have successfully burned the hex file in the controller, we are ready to use it just by giving the power supply. One great feature of the module is that it has inbuilt biasing circuit, so we need not to have attached anything externally.
Please note that the module works on 3.3V. Generally all other controller needs 5V as the biasing voltage. We have made our own PCB at our lab and we will use this PCB in our coming work . Please check out the whole process of using and burning below.
Please comment if you have any trouble using the module or burning it and do let us know your suggestions and feedbacks.
