The adapter board, nRF-e3-BO for the low cost nRF51822 modules is now available for sale. There a number of cheap (≈ USD 5) nRF51822 modules which use dual 2x9 2 mm pitch male header pins, making them very difficult to use. This modules breaks out the pins to standard 2.54 mm pitch headers, which aptly fit on a breadboard or perfboard. The board has a built-in 3.3 V regulator. The board also breaks out Serial Wire Debug (SWD) pins for programming and debugging. The board is a collaborative effort between Explore Embedded and Mahesh Venkitachalam from electronut.in.
Please note that this PCB will only work with the type of modules which have pinouts identical to the one shown above.
Note: The nRF51822 module is not shipped with board.

The background. . .
If you're going through an Electronics Engineering Program in India, or have already done; you'll know what 'practical engineering' is about! It is all about rote learning and mugging complex equations and theories. Yes, of-course there are few exceptional colleges. We knew that this is not the case, electronics is definitely not boring! In-fact, we when did our final year engineering project, it was quite a revelation. It is fun stuff, it can give you goosebumps, it can bring a lot of joy. We turned our college lab into junkyard in those 6 months. There were few people turning out to do stuff on their own, and we had complete control over proceedings! In-fact we bunked classes and were at the lab for how much ever time we could.
The story. . .
Then we moved into our jobs for a couple years after engineering and found out that it was no fun as it used to be in the lab! In the mean time though we were building stuff, learning to design Hardware, coding and hacking all the way. We started to think if we could change the way, things are taught and learned, could we contribute and make electronics learning a little more fun? We could we help people build stuff? and thus was Explore Embedded born!
With the same spirit we intend to make awesome tutorials, build development kits which are open to learning and hacking and enable you the makers to build!
Thank you for reading!
