Useful reference (Thanks to Thomas for permitting us to link his blog):

Dandelion is designed to be installed on adapter rings and manual lenses so that they could then be used on Nikon AF digital and film cameras.

Because Dandelion is about the same size as a match stick, it can be fitted to any existing adapter ring or lens with Nikon F bayonet mount. Lenses with such bayonet mounts have been produced since 1959.

With Dandelion fixed on the ring, the Nikon camera obtains exposure metering function. If your camera has a 3D matrix meter, it will function as well.

Precision focus will be acknowledged by a sound and light signal. On the screen you will also find highlighted spots that got into focus area. Junior series digital cameras will provide an acknowledging beep.

With Dandelion installed on a lens with an automatic AI-S aperture, the aperture will be controlled through the camera similar to autofocus lenses. This is one of Nikon's strongest points: you don't have to care about aperture when using an old manual lens.

Dandelion has another peculiar feature of "hard" shutter block before acknowledging signal. When pressing shutter release button up to the stop, the shot is made immediately in response to the signal. This is useful when shooting fast-moving objects.

Dandelion's most important feature for eager photographers is the possibility to change its parameters without taking it off the camera. You can alter focal length and other parameters pre-set in Dandelion. See programming instructions.

Dandelion is compatible with all digital and film* Nikon AF cameras.

Dandelion Compatibility Compatibility
1) There are only three film cameras that this chip is not compatible with: F4, F60 and F90x. It works with all other models perfectly.

2) Make sure the adapter locking hole is at least 1.4mm deep (in fact, almost all adapters are more than 1.4mm)

It is essential that you NEVER attach a chipped equipped lens to the camera if the NCPU data includes the same focal length as that programmed in the Dandelion. e.g. Camera and chip are both set at 45mm focal lenght
The reason for this is because the Camera NCPU data can corrupt the chip program and even prevent it from entering it's programming mode.
This is ONLY a problem with matching focal lengths. The NCPU data can be used for all other chipped lenses set to different focal lengths.

4) Programming mode is not compatible with F5 and D1X/H models.

Dandelion's modifiable parameters
# Aperture  From F1.0 to F90
# Focal length  From 5mm to 2000mm, chosen from a table
# Focus Mode  AF / MF
# Correction (or calibration) of focus confirmation dot - 17 levels

Installation Guide: 

Before sticking the chip, we recommend testing it by placing it on the camera contacts. Once chip is sticked, warranty will be voided.

1) For installation on some Nikon Lens (NOT adapters), remove the the prong (which might obstruct the chip), also remove the lens mount before sticking the chip (to avoid glue stain on lens).

2) For installation on BOTH Nikon Lens and Adapters - Place the alignment template onto the lens mount or adapter (as in the left bottom item in picture above).

3) Stick the chip onto the adapter (with super glue / hobby model glue / epoxy)  

4)  Above picture is a completed adapter / nikon lens mount

5) For installation on some Nikon Lens (NOT adapters) - Assemble the lens mount back to the lens.  DO NOT assemble the prong.
