Overview 

The Arduino GSM Shield connects your Arduino to the internet using the GPRS wireless network. Just plug this module onto your Arduino board, plug in a SIM card from an operator offering GPRS coverage and follow a few simple instructions to start controlling your world through the internet. You can also make/receive voice calls (you will need an external speaker and microphone circuit) and send/receive SMS messages.

As always with Arduino, every element of the platform – hardware, software and documentation – is freely available and open-source. This means you can learn exactly how it's made and use its design as the starting point for your own circuits. Hundreds of thousands of Arduino boards are already fueling people’s creativity all over the world, everyday. Join us now, Arduino is you!

  • Requires an Arduino board (not included)
  • Operating voltage 5V (supplied from the Arduino Board)
  • Connection with Arduino Uno on pins 2, 3 (Software Serial) and 7 (reset).

The GSM library is included with Arduino IDE 1.0.4 and later.

 

Description

 

The Arduino GSM Shield allows an Arduino board to connect to the internet, make/receive voice calls and send/receive SMS messages. The shield uses a radio modem M10 by Quectel (datasheet).  It is possible to communicate with the board using AT commands. The GSM library has a large number of methods to communicate with the shield.

The shield uses digital pins 2 and 3 for software serial communication with the M10. Pin 2 is connected to the M10’s TX pin and pin 3 to its RX pin. The modem's PWRKEY pin is connected to Arduino pin 7.

The M10 is a Quad-band GSM/GPRS modem that works at the following frequencies: GSM850MHz, GSM900MHz, DCS1800MHz and PCS1900MHz. It supports TCP/UDP and HTTP protocols through a GPRS connection. GPRS maximum data downlink and uplink transfer speed is 85.6 kbps.

To interface with the cellular network, the board requires a SIM card provided by a network operator. 

The most recent revision of the board uses the 1.0 pinout on rev 3 of the Arduino Uno board.

The micro to nano SIM adapter is included in the box.
