Replacement: None. The ADH8066 module is no longer being produced so we are no longer carrying this breakout board in our catalog. This page is for reference only.
Description: This is a simple breakout board for our ADH8066 miniature, quad-band GSM module. Standard 0.1" spaced headers allow easy access to a full range of functionality.
The ADH8066 is a miniature, quad-band GSM 850/EGSM 900/DCS 1800/PCS 1900 module, which can be integrated into a great number of wireless projects. You can use this module to accomplish almost anything a normal cell phone can - SMS text messages, GSM/GPRS, TCP/IP, and more! It also includes a SIM card socket on the back!
Note: You get the breakout board only. Check below for the ADH8066 module, which is sold separately.
Note: If you are having problems getting this wired up correctly, try looking at the links below. They show the board connected to a 3.3V FTDI board for communication over a terminal program, but could easily be interfaced with an Arduino following the same schematic.
Note: This module can pull up to 2A during transmission. In order to prevent issues in your project, be sure to use an appropriate power supply that can source a larger amount of current. It also helps to make proper use of decoupling capacitors to prevent power issues.
