nRF24 Series Not recommended for new designs

2.4 GHz RF System-on-Chip, Transceivers and Audio Streamer

The nRF24 Series includes the nRF24L, nRF24AP2 and nRF2460 ICs.

nRF24L ICs use Nordic Semiconductor's Enhanced ShockBurst protocol (ESB), enabling the implementation of ultra-low power and high performance communication with low cost host microcontrollers.

The nRF24AP2 ICs are low-cost, high-performance 2.4 GHz ISM single-chip connectivity devices with an embedded ANT™ protocol stack.
The nRF2460 is a wireless mono audio streamer.
