sorry for being so late, again...
Hello, @ghiglie yes you can use them with MySensors but they are not great for battery-powered sensors due to a hardware bug. If you use them as main-powered sensors they are fine, and range is decent with those.
@monte said in Just found a pair of "old" NRF51822-04 ... any good?:
Though the power bug @Nca78 mentioned is easily bypassed with proper software settings. Just don't rely on built in sleep function, because in case of nfr51822 it doesn't disable all hardware and drains power.
Oh, ok, I'll keep it in mind. I'm a good copy'n'paste-r , so as soon as I get to work on a chip, I'll look for the sleep code. Thanks for pointing that!
I'm really look for battery powered sensors, as for mains powered ones I use "easier" chips as ESPs, mainly on bigger dev modules (such as NodeMCU) since I have more space.
@ghiglie Check out these links if you haven't used NRF5 before. They should help you get started.
I found the ST-LINK programmer to be easier to work with (using Windows) that the J-LINK
I have a ST-LINK I bought since I saw this chips mentioned in @NeverDie 's threads , but then I tried some STM32 blue pills and finally got a working Black Magic Probe.
Now I just have to deal with the soldering, but I saw something like an adapter with pushpins...
I'll keep you updated!
