Description

Description:

The GPRS/GSM shield allows an Arduino board to communicate using the GSM cell phone network. It allows an Arduino board to connect to the internet, send and receive SMS, and make outgoing and incoming voice calls. To illustrate, Arduino board perceives a GSM shield as a modem; while the GSM/mobile operator perceives a GSM shield as a mobile phone. This GPRS shield is based on SIM900 module, which is a complete Quad-band GSM/GPRS module and delivers GSM/GPRS 850/900/1800/1900MHz performance for voice, SMS, Data, and Fax in a small form factor and with low power consumption. Besides the communication features, this shield also has the 12 GPIOs, 2 PWMs and an ADC of the SIM900 module present on-board.
The shield is compatible with the Arduino and with all boards which have the same form factor as a standard Arduino Board such as Mega, Mega ADK, Yun, and Leonardo boards. It is configured and controlled through UART using simple AT commands.
