The NRF24L01 module is one of the famous wireless RF module for makers. There are tones of tutorials uses this module for wireless communication.
While it is popular and compact, it’s not beginner friendly with the 3.3V operating voltage and 2×4 header pins. This Breakout board with socket will help beginner or student a lot in using the NRF24 module.
This breakout board is designed for NRF24L01+ user, comes with 2×4 socket that enable direct plug and use of NRF24L01 module and break the IO out to 6-way straight header pin with proper label, easier for hookup with jumper wires. Not to forget, there is a AMS1117 3.3V voltage regulator to allow Vin of 4.8V to 12V, and is capable of delivering maximum 1A of current. Quite handy for NRF24L01 as it will need that extra current during wireless communication. There is a power indicator LED too.
Now you can power the NRF24L01 from 5V of Arduino, and since the data communication pins are 5V tolerance, it is easier to use it with Arduino
