This is a port of popular nRF24L01(+) library RF24 for Allwinner A10/A20 devices.

To build sun7i (a20) version, type

make librf24-sun7i

To build sun4i (a10) version, type

make librf24-sun4i

To install library, type

    sudo make install

To make tests, type

	cd test/

Tests description

  • scanner.cpp Example to detect interference on the various channels available. This is a good diagnostic tool to check whether you're picking a good channel for your application.

  • pingtest.cpp Examples sends data to a client, which receives it and then sends back. Refer to arduino/pingtest.pde for a sample arduino client.

  • arduino_rcv.cpp This example receives incrementing counter value from Arduino node (arduino/arduino_send.pde)

  • arduino_rcv_irq.cpp Similar to arduino_rcv, but this sample uses IRQ pin through GPIO to reduce CPU usage.

Wiring and configuration for Cubieboard 2

All tests by default use /dev/spidev0.0 device and assume the following connectionof the NRF24L01 module to the Cubieboard:

NRF24L01 pin -> Cubiboard 2 pin

1 GND -> 45 GND
2 3.3V -> 44 3.3V
3 CE -> 41, PB13
4 CSN -> 40, PB10
5 SCK -> 47, PI11
6 MOSI -> 46, PI12
7 MISO -> 48, PI13
8 IRQ -> 37, PH7 (optional, for the sample that uses IRQ)
