NEW PRODUCT – SIM808 GSM + GPRS + GPS Cellular Module
SIM808 GSM GPRS Module is at the heart of our Adafruit FONA 808 – Mini Cellular GSM + GPS Breakout. For people who want to integrate a cellular (GSM/GPRS) module into their design without the full breakout, this hand-solderable module is pretty nice! Please note we don’t provide any tech support for this module, but we do have a schematic as well as a collection of datasheets and app notes that can be used to interface. Quad-band 850/900/1800/1900MHz – connect onto any global GSM network with any 2G SIM (in the USA, T-Mobile is suggested)
Fully-integrated GPS (MT3336 chipset with -165 dBm tracking sensitivity) that can be controlled and query over the same serial port
Make and receive voice calls using a headset or an external 32Ω speaker + electret microphone
Send and receive SMS messages
Send and receive GPRS data (TCP/IP, HTTP, etc.)
PWM/Buzzer vibrational motor control
AT command interface with "auto baud" detection
Here's the GPS specifications:
22 tracking /66 acquisition channels
GPS L1 C/A code
Tracking: -165 dBm
Cold starts : -147 dBm
Cold starts: 30s (typ.)
Hot starts: 1s (typ.)
Warm starts: 28s (typ.)
Accuracy: approx 2.5 meters
You’ll need to add all of the supporting circuitry that is required, such as antennas, power regulation, any level shifting, LEDs, etc!
You can check out our SIM808 Eagle placement object in the adafruit Eagle library.
In stock and shipping now!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s
CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
